Another day, another Teen Mom scandal! Jenelle Evans‘ ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, recently spoke out and slammed the reality star for spreading lies that he beat her so badly it caused her to miscarry.
In an interview with Radar Online, the 31-year-old — who was recently released from prison — denounced Jenelle’s claims in new memoir Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom and said, “Dude. When I read that she’s getting married to David, I thought, ‘This is her second wedding. You were married to somebody who you destroyed their life and left.'” Currently, his ex-wife is engaged to David Eason, Courtland’s former prison cell mate.
Courtland continued, “Jenelle’s done it to every one of us. Jenelle is like a hurricane. She is horrible. Everyone gets destroyed. If people don’t know that now, it’s sad. It happened to me.” The two were briefly married from 2012- 2014, however, a source told Hollywood Life at the time that the MTV star was just in it for the money. “He is older then her and known as a rich kid,” the insider revealed. “So she saw him as a meal ticket and he saw her as a way to get 15 minutes of fame.” The source also added that Courtland grew up in a family with money because they owned local KFC chains for generations.
In her memoir, Jenelle wrote about their tumultuous relationship and alleged domestic violence. “Courtland slapped me around a few times, then started punching me in the gut,” she wrote. However, Court denied the claims. He fired back, “No, I never hit her in a million years. I never ever physically hit her in that type of manner. I swear to God. Not drunk. Not high. Not sober. It never happened.” In fact, he even said his former wife faked her miscarriage. “She was with Gary [Head] and she sent me that picture of food coloring in her bath tub and tried to say it was drug use at the time that caused her to have a miscarriage. She was cheating on me with Gary.” In her book, Jenelle wrote, “I woke up the next morning to a pool of blood between my legs. My mother rushed me to the emergency room, where they explained to me that I had suffered a miscarriage due to my recent altercation with Courtland.”
Despite everything, however, he still admitted that he misses her from time to time. “I ain’t gonna lie, I miss her sometimes. But it ain’t like that. I don’t miss money. I’ve always had money. I actually loved her. Like a lot. It wasn’t MTV I loved or the shoes I was wearing. It broke my heart. I would have never thought this is what she would have thought or that she would have put about me in her book.”
Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
