It hasn’t been a very good week for the girls of MTV’s Teen Mom series. Just a day after news broke that 20-year-old Amber Portwood lost primary physical custody of her daughter, it’s now being reported that her co-star, Jenelle Evans, 19, has entered rehab.
Sources close to Evans claim that the mom of 1-year-old Jace is seeking treatment for emotional issues and not drug or alcohol problems, despite her numerous drug related arrests.
“She is clean right now and has been that way for several weeks,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “She’s doing this program to help her cope with all the stress in her life: her family situation, her legal issues, her general anxiety.”
Earlier this year, Janelle plead guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, and was also arrested for assault. In October of 2010, she was arrested for allegedly breaking and entering into an abandoned house to smoke marijuana.
Evans’ mother, Barbara, maintains custody of her son, Jace.
