|Oak Island, North Carolina||Jenelle continues to reconcile the responsibilities of motherhood with her love of partying. With her son Jace's father out of the picture, Jenelle relies heavily on her mother Barbara. The two have an explosive relationship, which is amplified by the fact that Barbara has temporary custody of Jace. Through it all, Jenelle struggles to prove herself as a mom and responsible adult, but her party girl ways keep leading her down the wrong path. When Jenelle and Kieffer get arrested, she must choose between changing her ways or continuing on a downward spiral that could quickly hit rock bottom. As of June 2016, Barbara continues to have custody of Jace. The mother and daughter have long been fighting over custody of the little boy, as documented on Teen Mom 2.
On December 4, 2012, Jenelle married Courtland Rogers. The couple got engaged in November 2012 and were expecting her second child. Jenelle stated that she missed a few days of taking her birth control pills and was notified of the pregnancy while at a doctors appointment. It was announced on January 25, 2013, that she and Courtland had split and that she had suffered a miscarriage. Despite reports of a miscarriage, it was later revealed in the fifth season that Jenelle chose to abort her pregnancy and divorced Courtland after a short marriage.
In June 2013, Jenelle started dating Nathan Griffith, a former model whom she met on Tinder. Within months of dating, they quickly moved in together and she became pregnant with their first child. Nathan has a daughter named Emery, who is from a previous relationship. On June 29, 2014, she gave birth to her second child, a son named Kaiser Orion Griffith. In January 2015, Jenelle and Nathan got engaged. However, they broke off their engagement in August of the same year. After their break-up, the former couple became engaged in a custody battle over Kaiser. In January 2017, Jenelle and Nathan reached a joint custody agreement in court, where Nathan would have Kaiser on the first weekend and the last two weekends of every month (Thursday-Sunday).
In September 2015, Jenelle started dating David Eason, a pipewelder whom she met on Tinder. Shortly after, they moved in together. David has two children from previous relationships; daughter Maryssa Rose and son Kaden David.

Jenelle gave birth to their first child together, a daughter named Ensley Jolie Eason, on January 24, 2017. In February 2017, Jenelle announced on Instagram that she and David are engaged.

Evans' legal problems
Jenelle Evans and her boyfriend Kieffer Delp were arrested on October 15, 2010 for breaking and entering and drug possession. According to a police report filed by Officer W.D. Everett, he and Officer D.A. McFatter found them in a vacant house in their hometown of Oak Island. She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation and a monthly drug and alcohol test. Prosecutors dropped the drug possession and breaking and entering charges, and on May 6 dropped the paraphernalia charge after Evans had completed 24 hours of community service.
Evans was arrested again on March 28, 2011 for assault after a video surfaced of her in an altercation with another teen named Brittany Truett. She was booked into Brunswick County Detention Center in North Carolina and released on bond. In May 2011, Evans checked herself into a rehab center in Malibu, California. She was again arrested on August 8, 2011, for violation of her probation. According to her lawyer, Evans had a meeting with her probation officer and tested positive for marijuana and opiates.
Evans was arrested for a fourth time on January 10, 2012 for allegedly making harassing phone calls and communicating threats to former roommate, Hannah Inman. She was released after posting $1,000 bail. Evans would be taken back into police custody six days later on January 16, 2012 for violating a domestic violence protection order. She was due back in court on March 23, 2012. On April 24, 2012, all of her charges were finally dropped.
On April 23, 2013, Evans was arrested in Caswell Beach, North Carolina for possession of heroin with intent to manufacture, sell, and distribute, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia and domestic assault against her husband, Courtland Rogers. He was also arrested for the drug crimes as well as domestic assault against Evans, by "hitting her on the neck and striking her with a closed fist on her head", while she allegedly struck him with a piece of furniture. At the time of her arrest, Evans was also served with a warrant for non-payment of child support.
On December 14, 2013, Evans was arrested for disturbing the peace after an argument with her boyfriend, Nathan Griffith. She was booked at 5:11 p.m., and was released on bond at 6:14 p.m. the same day.
