A whole mess of drama went down during the Teen Mom 2 reunion special — and it was all surrounding Jenelle Evans! Earlier this month, she threatened to quit the show after she complained about the way she and her husband David Eason were portrayed in a previous episode of the MTV series, but she still decided to show up to film the reunion. Jenelle’s ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith, his new girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt, and Jenelle’s mother Barbara Evans also showed up to the taping, and that’s where all of the drama started.
The Teen Mom 2 cast was finished with filming their segments on Saturday, Oct. 21 when an altercation allegedly broke out, according to The Ashley. “Most of the cast was in various green rooms backstage and the kids were all running around playing together,” a source revealed. “The fight started when Nathan’s girlfriend was walking past the room Barbara was in. Barbara hugged Ashley goodbye and Jenelle saw it and came bursting out of the room. She yelled at Barbara that it was wrong for her own mother to hug Nathan’s girlfriend.”
But Jenelle decided to use the Instagram Live feature in order to explain her side of the story and clear up the rumors. In the video, Jenelle acknowledged that she saw her mother hug Ashley, but she said that’s not the reason why the fight broke out. She claimed that the argument started when Jenelle was leaving backstage and saw Ashley talking to MTV cameras — even after she said she wouldn’t appear on the show — and Jenelle turned to her friend and said, “She’s actually being filmed.”
After that, Jenelle claimed that Ashley turned around and started “cussing” her out, saying “Jenelle, you’re nothing but drama. Why are you jealous of me?” But Jenelle kept walking because she wanted to say goodbye to Kaiser — her three-year-old son whom she shares with Nathan — and that’s when Ashley allegedly lunged at Jenelle and security had to pin Ashley down against a wall.
Jenelle claims that Nathan’s mother Doris — who was also there for the reunion filming — refused to let Jenelle see her son because it was Nathan’s weekend to be with Kaiser. “Kaiser was so upset yesterday,” Jenelle said. “He really wanted his mom and he was reaching for David, screaming the whole time.”
David was outside while everything was going on, so Jenelle called him in to defend her and as soon as he arrived, Doris yelled out to David, “Why don’t you tell my son what you said to me?” Jenelle said at that point, Nathan “bucked up” to David while Jenelle was standing in between them and Kaiser was in the room behind Nathan. Even though Nathan had allegedly tried to start a fight with David, he told Nathan, “Dude this isn’t worth it, you’re not worth it dude,” and they left.
But Nathan also took to social media to tell his side of the story, and he maintains that Jenelle was the aggressor in the fight and she’s the one who kept coming after Ashley. In his Periscope video, Nathan said it got so aggressive that at some point, their fellow Teen Mom 2 co-star Chelsea Houska stepped in to take Kaiser away from the situation until things calmed down.
