Teen mom Janelle Evans and her new squeeze Nathan Griffith just bought a new house together, but rumors are swirling that he is with her only to help him with his own financial shortcomings.
Court documents revealed that Nathan, 25, has had one traffic case, one common case and two civil cases filed against him. Griffith also has a $5,005.82 judgment against him stemming from an April incident and was evicted from his house just one month before he moved in with Evans.
According to Horry County court records in South Carolina, Nathan's landlord entered a plea to have him evicted that was granted on May 20.
Sources close to the couple are keeping a watchful eye on her new boyfriend given the timing of his financial problems and his relationship with Evans.
"It's suspicious timing that Nathan has all these money problems going on and just happened to get with Jenelle," an insider told Radar.
The couple purchased a new home worth $135,000, Radar Online reported. The two have only been together for several weeks but appear to be quite happy. They have even been filming season five of "Teen Mom 2" for MTV, meaning that their relationship will be on camera for all to see.
"Jenelle got a house with Nathan and she's really happy about it. They're totally living together in this house in South Carolina and Jenelle says they bought it together," a friend told Radar. "MTV is filming there, so she's been really secretive about all of the details, but it has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Friends of theirs say that they paid just a little less than what it was selling for, which is $134,900."
Evans and Rogers are not legally divorced yet; she has to wait a certain amount of time before she can file the necessary paperwork but intends to do so as soon as possible. The two had an amicable relationship that ended with them being arrested for possession of heroin. Evans maintains that Rogers beat her repeatedly and possibly caused the loss of their child.
