So, there's shocking, "oh my God, I never saw that coming" reality television gossip, and then there's this. Because, believe me, you saw this coming and will in no way be the least bit shocked. Former Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans' former boyfriend Kieffer Delp was arrested. Again. You may remember him as the homeless dude who got the innocent Janelle hooked on Ke$ha heroin…and it was all captured by MTV's cameras.
This news is especially entertaining for me because a dear friend of mine texted me last week to see if he was missing out on any Kieffer gossip. This friend practices law in Brunswick County and was appointed to one of Kieffer's cases a while ago. Every once in a while he checks in to see if I have heard how his "old pal" is doing. So, this one is for you, buddy (although you likely knew it before I did)!
Never a dull moment for Jenelle Evansand her men. This week it's her beau Nathan Griffith in trouble with the law. Nathan was arrested early this morning (2:18 a.m.) for DUI, resisting arrest, driving on the wrong side of the road, speeding in a reduced speed zone, disobeying an officer and oh yeah..driving on a suspended license!! Happy early birthday to Nathan!
The reportedly sober couple had a night out that ended with a bang. Here's the list from Nathan's arrest paperwork:
Resisting Arrest – No bail set
Driving Under Suspension – No bail set
Speeding in a Reduced Speed Zone – $133.50
Driving on Wrong Side of the Road – $237.50
DUI – Pretrial – No bail set
Disobeying a police officer – $315.00
Jenelle, of course, is denying the events of the evening on Twitter and via her "official PR rep" Twitter account.
Dustin Sullivan, the judge whisperer, managed to get Jenelle's most serious charges – simple assault; possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute; possession of Percocet – dropped. The Teen Mom 2 star pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and was sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation.
Jenelle was free to go about her normal day, which usually consists of video gaming, napping, soaking in the tub, and cyber bullying former besties, random fans, former boyfriends, and husband Courtland Rogers. However, she failed a drug test issued by the court, so to the slammer she went for 48 hours.
Jenelle was released from jail Wednesday morning. What. A. Spectacle.
Naturally, Courtland tweeted his way through his visit, "Life might not always be fair but at least I'm alive to witness what really matters. This sobriety s–t is amazing!"
In the end, Jenelle pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia and was sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation. Charges surrounding a schedule II controlled substance (Percocet) and assault against Courtland were dropped.
Not a bad day in court for Jenelle, err, until the judge requested a drug test. Dustin Sullivan has reported that she tested positive for marijuana, sharing, "The judge gave her 48 hours in jail for testing positive."
No more Teen Mom 2 notoriety for you Courtland Rogers! Upon returning to the real world you'll have to also return to being a nobody on twitter. But being a twitter superstar was so awesome… too bad it doesn't pay!
So back to the news, Courtland is getting out of jail today according to his sister and his new girlfriend. He struck a plea deal for time served because he agreed to just plead guilty to the charges.
Upon his release Courtland looks forward to a sober life WITHOUT axis of crazy Jenelle Evans! Unfortunately the two were forced to come face-to-face in court yesterday morning! OK, so I'm not sure if they actually came into contact with each other but they were both there!
Courtland Rogers, the jailed husband of Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, is looking forward to life after jail, err, Jenelle, err, jail. Um – same thing? Pretty much if you get mixed up with Jenelle Evans, you end up in jail, right?
Courtland's sister Carson Rogers and her boyfriend Jim Yonkers have shared the details of their last jailhouse visit with Courtland with Reality Tea.
Sounds like Courtland is in good spirits. "I have not seen him smile that much since he was a kid and before he was on drugs," said Jim. "He has gained his weight back and looks so healthy."
