We caught up exclusively with the star for her first on record interview since her court appearance.
Jenelle Evans Released Jail Teen Mom Exclusive Interview
On what exactly happened last week with her ex, Evans told us that, “Basically you know I went to go pick Kaiser up and when I went to go pick him up, he grabbed my phone and he wouldn’t give it back. So we wrestled for my phone and then he went inside and locked himself in his apartment. And I was like, ‘Can you just give me my phone and my son?’ And he wouldn’t open the door, so I ended up leaving. And then after I left he went to the police station and pressed charges on me and said I attacked him.”
“Not even 24 hours afterwards he wanted those charges dropped,” Evans added. “He wanted the judge to know that and everything.”
When asked what the next steps will be in this case, Evans explained that, “There is (another court appearance) on Thursday. I’m gonna be at my externship because my lawyer’s gonna represent me. According to him (Nathan), he said he wants them dropped, and she (my lawyer) said that he’s not showing up to court, so she said that I don’t have to show up and that his lawyer’s gonna show up and represent him and she’s gonna represent me, and hopefully everything just gets dropped. I’m happy they got a court date that quick. That was rare. That was really rare.”
Evans also detailed how she doesn’t have much communication with Griffith, stating that, “There’s not a no contact order in place, but we don’t speak to each other. We only speak to each other if we’re exchanging Kaiser. We take turns with Kaiser.”
In addition to Griffith, Evans has had some issues with her Mother, Barbara Evans. We asked Evans if she spoke to her Mom after last week’s events. “She (my Mom) wanted to make sure I was okay and that’s about it,” Evans stated. “She’s glad me and Nathan are split up of course. She just wants me to focus on what I’m doing.”
“We don’t speak that much unless it’s about picking up Jace and stuff like that,” she added about her strained relationship with her mother. “I mean, I don’t know. It’s iffy. It depends on the mood she’s in that day.”
Although the altercation with Griffin was not filmed, Evans also detailed that MTV cameras were there to cover some of what went down last week. “They (MTV) came down whenever they found out that I had a warrant,” she told us. “They weren’t there for what happened between me and Nathan, though.”
The reality television star also revealed what she learned from this experience, telling us, “I think I just learned to actually just stay focused on what is the most important thing in my life right now, which is my future and my goal which is to graduate and to be able to support my kids after this whole MTV thing goes away.”
“I want to work in the medical field really badly,” Evans wrapped with telling us.”I graduate in July and I’m really excited about that.”
We wish Evans luck in regards to this coming Thursday’s court date. Be sure to stay posted to RealMrHousewife.com and connect with us on Twitter and Facebook for updates pertaining to this and all reality TV news.
