That was fast! On “Teen Mom 2” Jenelle Evans only recently accepted Nathan Griffith’s marriage proposal, but according to the MTV reality stars, their wedding is officially off.
Following several hints from Jenelle that her relationship with Nathan, the father of her 1-year-old son Kaiser, was in turmoil, Nathan has confirmed he and Jenelle are no longer an item. Speaking to Radar Online Tuesday, Nathan said his ex-fiancée is “addicted to drama," calling their relationship “toxic.”
“Jenelle is crazy, but we have a family together and I believe in second chances so I gave it to her,” Griffith said. “I have a big heart. But now I am done. I can’t go back to all of that.”
Griffith also claimed that Jenelle, 23, threatened him pre-breakup. “She kept telling me ‘I’m going to ruin your life,’ and I just don’t care anyone. I don’t care. I can’t take it anymore,” he added.
The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports that Nathan's new girlfriend is named Jessica Henry. “I was with Jessie before and I’m with her again,” Nathan told Radar Online in response to rumors he was having an affair during his relationship with Jenelle. “Jenelle and I are not together and I did not cheat on her. She knows we have broken up.”
As for what their breakup means for his future on MTV’s “Teen Mom 2,” Nathan says it’s unclear. “If I do do another season it is going to be very different and on my terms,” he told Radar Online, blaming the network for the bulk of his issues with Jenelle. “MTV feeds into her ego! They want her to get upset about things."
Despite initially claiming she and Nathan were working out their problems, Jenelle confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that her relationship with Nathan was over Tuesday. Jenelle told the site she has given Nathan back the engagement ring he gifted to her in January and is now focused on “being a mom.” Jenelle also has a 6-year-old son Jace from a previous relationship.
“I am not looking to date anyone at the moment. I am focusing on myself,” she said.
“Teen Mom 2” fans first began speculating that Jenelle and Nathan’s romance was in trouble last month when Jenelle told one viewer they were no longer living under the same roof. Rumors continued to swirl on Tuesday when Jenelle reportedly posted and then shortly after deleted a tweet claiming Nathan had a “side chick.”
