Josh Rendon

16 and Pregnant star Ebony Jackson is telling her side of the story after CPS took her daughter away this week. The former MTV star opens up about her depression and suicidal thoughts after suffering a miscarriage.

The problems for Ebony began this week after cops raided the home she shares with her husband Josh Rendon following an anonymous complaint. What they discovered was pretty horrific. The police report reveals cops found “human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing” in every room of the house. Their house was also “full of flies and in some areas, maggots.”

As a result, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn was taken away by CPS and now remains in temporary foster care, while Ebony and Josh were arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In an interview with the HollyBaby blog, Ebony, 20, opens up about her struggles. “I had been suffering with depression. I lost a kid, so I’ve been going through my own personal problems and so I haven’t been able to be the wife, mom that I’m supposed to be,” she says. “Neither of us wanted any of this to happen… One of my old friends [called us in] and she reported a lot of false things.”

“We never have our house that dirty,” adds Ebony, blaming the “dog feces” mess on the fact that puppies were just born in her home. “Our daughter never lives like that. Our daughter is always taken care of. She will always be taken care of. Our daughter always comes first in our lives and I don’t want anyone to think that we are just a couple of drug heads because we’re not.”

When asked to explain the synthetic marijuana that was found in their home, Ebony takes full responsibility for it. “It was mine,” says Ebony. “It had nothing to do with Josh. It was all mine and I was just doing it to self harm … after the loss of my son, I just lost him two months ago.”

Ebony goes on to reveal that her emotional issues were triggered by the loss of an unborn son. “I’ve been depressed, anxious, dealing with the loss of [the baby]. I was already hospitalized at the beginning of June — for suicide prevention,” she said going on to add that she’s looking to get help now. “I’m going to go back to therapy to find the right depression medication… I just want to let all of our fans know we are sorry for letting them down and for letting Jocelyn down.”

Unfortunately for Ebony, there might be more trouble coming her way. TMZ is reporting this morning that Josh is now at risk of getting kicked out of the military.

Josh, who is a member of the Air Force, is currently under investigation in relation to his arrest this week. A rep for Little Rock Air Force Base confirms Josh could indeed be discharged.

Even worse, if Josh is discharged, he and Ebony will lose their home as they currently live on the base.

16 and Pregnant couple Ebony Jackson and Josh Rendon had their daughter taken away by Child Protective Services Tuesday night after cops invaded their home.

What the cops discovered is pretty shocking as well as vomit inducing. According to TMZ, cops decided to pay the former MTV reality stars a visit after someone called the Department of Human Services, complaining about the living conditions in the house.

It appears the cops had good reason to do so. The police report reveals, “Every room inside the residence had human and dog feces on the floors, walls, and clothing.”

Even more horrific, “The house was full of flies and in some areas, maggots.” The cops add that evidence of “synthetic marijuana” was also discovered. The couple had their 2-year-old daughter taken away from them, and rightfully so. Animal control was also called to rescue three dogs in the house.

In addition to losing their daughter, Josh and wife Ebony, 20, were also arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and drug possession.

Josh, who starred on season one with Ebony, spoke to TMZ and took responsibility for the mess. He stated, “It was fair for them to charge us with this. [Our house] wasn’t clean.”

The couple was released from custody on Wednesday after they each posted an $8,000 bond. Josh and Ebony are now working hard to try to get back their daughter, who remains in CPS custody.
