Jenelle Evans is back out of rehab after checking out after only four days of treatment. Evans has been in and out of the facility for heroin addiction, but she apparently "doesn't think she really needs it," a friend said. Now ex-husband Courtland Rogers has spoken about his feelings and hopes for a relationship with Evans post-rehab.

"Jenelle just needed to spend some time trying to figure things out. She wasn't in rehab that long because she doesn't think she really needs it. She's ready to live her life like a normal person not on drugs or dealing with the crappy guys who were around her," the friend told Radar Online.
"This is for you Jace, no one else. If anyone deserves this, you do. Love you so much buddy. Bye everybody," Evans tweeted on March 2. Then, just eight days later, she was back online, tweeting like normal.
Meanwhile, she has divorced her husband, Courtland Rogers, who alleged that she used heroin while pregnant, which possibly caused the loss of their child. He has since been arrested on four counts of assault against Evans, showing just how destructive their relationship was.
However, Rogers has now spoken out about the status of their relationship and Evans' latest stay in rehab, which was incredibly short.
"Right now Jenelle is my wife; she's in rehab," he told OK Magazine on Monday. "I can't speak for her, we don't talk on the phone but we don't talk about our relationship. We talk about Jace; we talk about her making it through this, that she can do it."
"I do not know the future with her, but I can tell you that right now all she cares about is her son, and that is all I could have ever asked for her because in the end, that is the only boy in her life that matters. Whether we stay married or not, I just want her to be that mom that I have actually seen her be with Jace," Rogers added.
It's not clear whether Evans has been in contact with Rogers, but it is clear that he still has hope for some type of relationship with Evans and Jace, whom he described as "kind of like my stepson."
