Jenelle Evans is lashing out at rumors she’s pregnant with her third child. The “Teen Mom 2” star responded to the reports calling them a “lie.”
“I just wanted to put it out there and since Ashley never spoke to me direct or my team on the ‘exclusive,’ you’re wrong ! I am not pregnant,” she posted on Instagram Saturday. “And if I were I wouldn’t be afraid or scared to tell you ‘my fans’ who support me. But hey, if this story gets you attention, have a good weekend and enjoy the attention #lies #whywouldilie #ashleyislying.”
On Friday, the Ashley reported several sources had confirmed Jenelle was expecting another baby. The MTV star, 24, is already mom to son Jace, with ex Andrew Lewis and son Kaiser, with her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith. According to the outlet, an audience member at the Season 7 reunion taping of “Teen Mom 2” said Jenelle looked a little heavier in the midsection, leading many people to believe she was pregnant.
A crew member on set also told the Ashley the show’s producers were “freaking out” over the baby news and not happy that Jenelle is with child. Apparently, the pregnancy rumors ramped up when the realty star was photographed recently by a fan shopping at a Target in Wilmington, North Carolina, sporting what some believe was a small baby bump.
