She’s setting the record straight! Last week, reports claimed that Jenelle Evans was fired as an advertiser for Blue Apron, an American ingredient-and-recipe meal kit service after a Twitter user notified the company of the 26-year-old Teen Mom 2 star’s bad reputation. But in a now-deleted tweet, Jenelle revealed that the reason she isn’t working with the company anymore has to do with her long-standing feud with her fellow TM2 co-star Kailyn Lowry.
“Here’s [the] truth for [Blue Apron],” Jenelle wrote on Twitter, according to a fan-obtained screenshot. “I decided to work with another food company after they decided to work with Kail.”

Also included in the tweet were screenshots of a text message conversation where Jenelle explained to a friend that she was the one who decided to stop working with the company and she wasn’t fired like fans originally thought.
It seemed the company fired Jenelle after a customer tweeted at the company to tell them how upset they were about the fact that Jenelle would be representing their brand. “By @blueapron having Jenelle Evans as an advertiser for your company is a bad idea. She’s a drug addict who abuses her kids in TV. You just lost my business,” the angry tweeter wrote on Wednesday, Feb. 7. “Good job. I won’t be the only one.”
Thanks for reaching out. We will no longer be advertising with Jenelle.

In response, Blue Apron revealed that they had cut ties with the mom-of-three — who shares son Jace, 8, with ex Andrew Lewis, son Kaiser, 3, with ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith, and daughter Ensley, 12 months, with husband David Eason — and it seemed like an immediate, direct response to the customer’s complaint. “Thanks for reaching out,” the company wrote one day later on Feb. 8. “We will no longer be advertising with Jenelle.” In Touch previously reached out to Blue Apron for comment.
Jenelle’s ongoing feud with Kail (and apparently, Blue Apron) is just another source of drama that seems to constantly surround the reality star. In recent weeks, there has been growing speculation that she is pregnant and carrying her fourth child, but the North Carolina resident posted a picture of her toned abs, accompanied by a very simple and straightforward denial. “Btw, I’m not pregnant,” she wrote alongside the snap of her flat tummy.

Jenelle first faced pregnancy rumors back in January, when fans mistook her bloating from a hernia repair surgery for a bun in the oven. “Sorry if you guys assumed I’ve been pregnant anytime recently but I’m not pregnant,” she wrote on Snapchat at the time. “Just been bloated for the wrong reasons…lmao.”
