Jenelle Evans admits that she smoked marijuana while pregnant with her daughter Ensley.


The Teen Mom 2 star spoke about the incident on Vince Russo‘s podcast The Brand. “I’m not going to lie about that,” she said on the podcast. “I tested positive for THC and Ensley did not test positive. I did. So [Child Protective Services] were like — I was in the hospital — they said, ‘Did you smoke when you were pregnant?’ I said, ‘I did within the past 30 days.’ I said ‘I have really bad esophageal spasms and I throw up every 5 minutes, I can’t even eat.’ And they said, ‘Okay, some moms do that. We are not here to judge, we are writing down your information.'”

Evans explained that, after she tested positive for THC, the drug found in cannabis, that Child Protective Services (CPS) completed wellness check on the baby. “They came and did a checkup and everything is fine. They closed the case,” she said.

In the same interview, the reality star shared that CPS has come to her home far more than just that one time. “CPS has been here like 30 times, not just for that, but for haters online saying that I abuse my kids,” she said.

Evans has always been a controversial cast member on MTV’s popular series. She has a criminal record and admittedly participated in drug use when she was younger. She opened up about her battle with drugs in her 2017 memoir Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom.

Evans recently landed a gig as a social media spokesperson for food delivery company Blue Apron. The deal was short-lived, however, once complaints came in saying that Evans’ image conflicted with the brand.

Evans recently married Ensley’s father David Eason, who has also found himself in hot water this week. He posted some homophobic tweets, which led fans to call for his ejection from the MTV show. Eason allegedly referred to gay and transgender individuals as “abominations” on the now-deleted account. The screenshots, however, have been shared. “Are you going to teach your children to hate gay and transgender people?” one user asked Eason. “No,” he replied, “I’m going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way… If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”

Evans, for her part, always stands up for Eason. “I don’t like the fact that I’ve changed for the better and [I am] happily married, yet [people] perceive David as some angry dad that gets annoyed by his children,” she told People. “Or, if MTV does not have the drama from the storyline they want, they try to create drama as hard as they can.”
