Jenelle Evans Talks Growing Up With Fighting & Physical Altercations

Opening Up!

Yesterday, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans began a new website, part of which features a blog. While we weren’t sure when the blog would begin, she already has the first entry up- and it’s quite the confessional one. What do we mean?

Jenelle Evans Blog Talks Childhood Fighting and Physical Altercations

“I grew up with my older brother, sister, father, and mother up to the age of 5 or 6 from what I can remember,” Evans began, discussing her father. “We grew up in Scranton, PA. He always knew how to put a smile on my face while singing old songs to me in the car, like Red Hot Chili Peppers and rock music while driving around town in the car running errands.”

“I would love to hear his voice because he actually was a great singer and use to be in a band with Chevy Chase and had blonde hair down to his butt!” she continued. “For some reason my siblings and my mother always had a sour attitude towards my father and I had no idea why.  Later on I found out there was a huge reason behind that.”

I was always daddy’s little girl,” she continued. “I always wanted to be around him and just watch him play the keyboard and show me how to put songs together on his computer at my grandmother’s house. This lead to him buying me my first digital camera and guiding me to my ultimate career goal which was film editing.”

Evans then opened up about the more turbulent aspects of her childhood, writing that, “My mother and father never got along, and I don’t remember, but there was always arguing and physical altercations in my household growing up.  They both decided to get a divorce and he moved out. I remember that broke my heart pretty bad, even being so young. I went from seeing him everyday and listening to his soothing singing to nothing but silence at night and my mom yelling at my brother and sister for some reason or another.”

“We use to have visitation with my father after the divorce, along with my brother and sister tagging along,” she elaborated. “These visitations lasted for a few years… until my mother met my step-father, Mike. My mother meeting my step-father (to me, I’m guessing) made my father feel like he shouldn’t even be involved anymore. Another man stepped into his children’s lives and he just gave-up.”

Evans had more to write, explaining that, “The last time I saw my father, I was expecting him to come pick all three of us up from the house. My step-father was standing on the porch with us waiting which I honestly feel like my mother did on purpose. A few minutes later I saw my own father drive past the house after seeing my step-dad standing on the porch.  He didn’t stop to pick us up for our visit. I was torn into pieces.”

Evans then fast forwarded a few year, detailing how, “A couple years later we relocated from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. My father weirdly called my mother one day and asked to speak to my brother and neither he nor my sister wanted to speak to him. He then asked to speak to me. My mother immediately said ‘She doesn’t want to speak to you.’ I then piped in and said ‘Uhm, yes I do.’ I asked my father where he’s been and he said, ‘Home. How are you?’ and I said ‘Good, when are you coming to visit me?’ and my mom grabbed the phone and said ‘We can set something up, but you need to come here.’ Ever since that talk I have not seen or spoken to my father.”

To this day I have no idea whether it was the best choice for me to cut ties with him, like my mother tried to make me do, or if my father just didn’t want anything to do with us anymore,” Evans solemnly stated. “This thought is always on my mind, but until I get to speak to him, it will never be answered. Maybe one day we will reconnect once again. Love you daddy.”

This was truly a sad read, but we definitely found it interesting to see how personal Evans took her blog, especially for a first post.
