A few days ago, Celeb Dirty Laundry posted an article about Jenelle Evans’ boyfriend abusing her son. According to the article, Nathan was playing Xbox live and forgot to turn his microphone off before yelling at Jace about spilling cereal on the floor. After that, he yelled for Jenelle to come take care of her son. Finally, Nathan was heard over the microphone hitting Jace repeatedly. The person who reported the incident to the website was quoted as saying she “heard every single cry from that precious child’s mouth as Nathan beat him.”
The accuser has remained anonymous, but she has provided some screen shots of her Xbox session where Nathan’s username was shown, which does seem to prove that she was actually online with him around the time of the alleged incident. Nathan has been displayed to people via Jenelle as a great step-father and a good role model for her son, although we do know that he’s spent some time in jail. We also see his anger on the Teen Mom 2 trailer, where he is shown yelling at Barbara.
Yesterday, Jenelle took to twitter to promote an article that was posted at a newer website called Teen Mom Truth, which was basically Jenelle defending herself and Nathan against the claims that had been made. Jenelle said that her mother does spank Jace, but that she and Nathan don’t believe in that kind of punishment, and they don’t choose to spank Jace when they are taking care of him.
Personally, I’m not taking sides on this one. I feel as though there are three sides to every story, and I’m almost certain that we don’t have the full truth from either of these accounts. Jenelle has had a history of abusive relationships, although none of them have ever seemed to involve her son being physically harmed. If the abuse is happening, I hope Jenelle realizes it soon and chooses to protect Jace and her unborn child.
