Jenelle Evans is receiving widespread backlash after tweeting she wants a divorce from her husband of just two months, Courtland Rogers, with some critics going so far as to blast the "Teen Mom" star as an "unfit mother" and "train wreck."
The 21-year-old MTV star is renowned for airing her dirty laundry on social networking site Twitter, and in recent days her real life drama reached new heights after she announced that she is getting a divorce, just days after confirming her second pregnancy, according to Hollywood Life.
"I am getting a divorce, ASAP." Evans tweeted Jan. 23, followed by a list of expletives.
Just one week prior, Evans was shrugging off divorce rumors and professing her love for her new husband. However, in recent days she had a miscarriage scare, and subsequently filed assault charges against Rogers, 24. Evans' attorney claims his client was subject to physical abuse at the hands of Rogers.
"They are the highest level of misdemeanor you can get. [Courtland] faces a maximum 150 days in jail per charge. She was physically assaulted over a period of time," Evans' attorney, Dustin R.T. Sullivan, told E! News. "She will be a victim in the case and will be represented by the State of North Carolina."
Evans, who lost custody of her first child in 2012, has been embroiled in seemingly endless drugs scandals and legal woes prompting some critics to question whether she is fit to be a mother again. The reality star, who is said to be seven weeks along, has been bombarded with "I told you so" tweets from Twitter users in recent days.
"So Jenelle and Courtland ARE divorcing, is anyone surprised? Every knew it would not last Jenelle, you are a foolish train wreck and do not deserve another child! #toldyaso," Georgie M tweeted.
"Jenelle Evans is a train wreck! How is it u have so much time for Twitter but never look after ur son? Now getting a divorce b4 the baby is even born? That poor innocent baby will have a horrible life... ur an unfit mother!" Dane Lewis wrote in a series of particularly strong tweets.
