Teen Mom Jenelle Evans' transformation: see how the former MTV star has changed through the years

JENELLE Evans is probably one of the most iconic Teen Mom stars to have ever been on the franchise.

Many first met her when she appeared on 16 & Pregnant back in 2010 as she gave birth to her first son, Jace.

Since then, the mom of three has been through ups and downs including a few arrests, being fired from the show, and getting married twice.

Here's a look back at how the 29-year-old has changed since first stepping into the limelight:

A TEEN MOM


The world first met Jenelle when she appeared on 16 & Pregnant in 2010.

Not only did she deal with becoming a mom at such a young age, but she was estranged from her son's father – who has never been involved in Jace's life since watching him be born.

She's also been very vocal about her issues with her mom, Barbara.

At the time, she looked like every other teenager: she had facial piercings, thin eyebrows, and bleached hair.

Sadly, Jenelle could not keep custody of Jace for long because just one year after giving birth, she signed parental rights to her mom as she battled with addiction.

MTV CALLING

MTV premiered the show Teen Mom in 2011 after they discovered some of the moms had gathered fans, Jenelle included.

She showcased her life as she struggled under Barbara's controlling behavior while also trying to remain a normal teenager who went to school and took care of her kid.

At the time, she was also dating Kieffer Delp, whom her mom hated.

The two openly smoked weed and often got in trouble.

BIG TROUBLE

By 2012, Jenelle's antics had caught up to her.

She had already been arrested once in 2010 for drug possession and again in 2012 for cyberstalking.

In total, Jenelle has been arrested around 15 times on charges ranging from drug possession, assault, and driving without a license.

By this time, Jenelle had fully dyed her hair blonde and was rocking thick-brimmed glasses.

She was also briefly a wife as she married her boyfriend, Courtland Rogers, in 2012.

Things didn't end well and they finalized their divorce in 2014.

NEW MAN NEW LIFE

Jenelle seemed to get her life straight in 2013 when she met Nathan Griffith.

Things moved quickly for the two as she then got pregnant by November of that same year.

To start her new chapter, Jenelle had switched her blonde hair to black and would give birth to her second son, Kaiser, in 2014.

DAVID'S HERE

Jenelle and Nathan went their separate ways and she quickly moved on with a new man: David Eason.

The two met on Tinder and it seemed like a match made in heaven.

The two went Instagram official in September 2015.

MOM TIMES THREE

By 2016, David and Jenelle proved they were serious when they got pregnant with their first child together.

David already had two kids from a previous relationship and he seemed like a great stepdad to her kids.

Jenelle seemed truly happy and was glowing as she showed off her baby bump.

MASSIVE RING

Jenelle and David got engaged in early 2017 and tied the knot towards the winter.

The couple lived in their North Carolina home with David's daughter, Maryssa, as well as Kaiser and their daughter Ensley.

TROUBLE IN PARADISE

By 2018, things got bad for Jenelle again when she claimed David assaulted her after calling 911 on him.

She later retracted her statement and claimed it was all a drunken accident.

BYE BYE MTV

2019 was a particularly dark year for Jenelle and David.

The couple had first shared on Instagram that their dog, Nugget, had gone missing and they needed help finding him.

It was later discovered that David had actually shot and killed the dog after it allegedly snipped at Ensley in the face.

MTV began losing sponsors, so they cut ties with David and then fired Jenelle.

The couple also lost plenty of fans and brand deals.

After their huge career change, Jenelle announced on Instagram that she was filing for divorce from David after having packed up her things, grabbed her kids, and abandoned their home.

In a YouTube documentary, Jenelle showed the chaos of those days as she moved to Nashville, found a new job, and filed for divorce.

She claimed to be scared of David as she had feared for her life and her children's lives after multiple incidents drove her away.

BACK AGAIN

By 2020, Jenelle and David began seeing each other again before getting back together.

The two tried to hide their relationship but failed after many damning clues.

After admitting they had gotten back together, Jenelle claimed once more that he never abused her and she never feared for her life.

It was also around this time that Jenelle opened up about her weight gain and flaunted her curves proudly.

Halfway through the year, David and Jenelle seemed to split once more after an altercation in their home where he beat up one of her friends.

But, to no one's surprise, the couple got back together again just a few weeks later.

Since then, Jenelle and David have been constantly slammed for their parenting ways, their videos, and their way of being.

By 2021, Jenelle has not been able to regain custody of her son, Jace, despite trying multiple times.
