With the cameras away, the drama still plays.
Jenelle Evans and her mother Barbara kept their relationship real and raw. Instead of laughter and love, the pair clawed at each other constantly. They just looked and acted like they hated each other. From dialing 911 to threats of domestic violence, fans saw the mother-daughter duo at their worst. However, Jenelle and Barbara hit an all-time low. When the former's memoir Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom came out, her mom upped the crazy by calling out her daughter's alleged bull. Jenelle still sticks by her story.
She wants her fans to know the hardships of her childhood, like when her father left her life. "Jenelle claims that Barbara forced her biological father, Robert Evans, to leave the family's home after he fell down the stairs while holding a young Jenelle," a Blasting News article states. According to Barbara, she says her daughter only wrote lies. Robert left during Jenelle's preschool years, so how would she even remember? Even though Barbara remains unconvinced, Jenelle reassures her fans with more harrowing stories.
"Jenelle also opened up about her brother in her new memoir. Evans says that her brother Collin was put into a group home after he nearly burnt down the family's house. After Collin lit his toys on fire and then threw them on his bed, the top floor of the family's home was damaged by fire, and Barbara had to make the hard choice to send Collin away," the article reads. He endangered his family, but did his mom really make the right choice? Maybe Jenelle feels salty towards her mom for another life-changing decision. More life-changing decisions came the Evans' way, though. The biggest one? When Barbara took Jenelle's firstborn away from her.
