Life is never dull for Teen Mom 2 wild child Jenelle. But when things got too tough to handle, a friend says the troubled teen would revert to this shocking habit.
Tori Rhyne, a longtime pal of the Oak Island, North Carolina native, revealed that Jenelle’s family turmoil put her in such a bad place that the young mom used to cut her own flesh with scissors and razors to cope.
“They’re all crazy,” Tori said of the Evans family, adding that Jenelle would often call her crying as a result of the fighting. Tori said she first realized Jenelle was cutting when she’d stop by with her wrists concealed, either wrapped or covered in long sleeves. “Sometimes you [could] see the blood and stuff,” Tori explained.
Though Tori tried to cheer up Jenelle by telling her that “she is not alone,” nothing seemed to help. Out of sheer frustration, Tori admitted, “I would actually slap her cuts that she had on her wrist. I know when I did that it was gonna hurt her a little bit.”
What do YOU think about Jenelle’s decision to self-harm? Do you think she should get help?
