Jenelle opened up to Dr. Drew on the ‘Teen Mom 2’ reunion special about how her ex Kieffer Delp allegedly got her addicted to heroin, and he reportedly shot her up so much one time, she nearly died. Kailyn also revealed why she doesn’t trust Jo’s girlfriend Vee — read on for the full reunion recap.
Jenelle Evans officially came clean during the Teen Mom 2 reunion special with Dr. Drew Pinksy on May 6, and revealed that she has been battling a deadly addiction to heroin — and claims her troubled ex Kieffer Delp got her hooked on the hardcore drug.
Jenelle Evans Reveals Heroin Addiction
Jenelle admitted to Dr. Drew that the only reason she got back together with Kieffer — her troubled on-again, off-again boyfriend that she has known since season one — is because she felt so alone and rejected after her ex-fiance Gary Head physically assaulted her.
So when she turned to Kieffer for support, he also enabled her to do drugs and reportedly got her to try heroin for the first time, she said. “I had never tried it, so then I tried it… I was throwing up every five minutes. I was in the hospital three times, you can’t sleep because you are in withdrawal,” she said.
Jenelle also said she was in withdrawal for about a month, and broke things off with Kieffer for good when he took her to New Jersey to be with his family, but left her alone after he accidentally injected her with too much heroin. And even though she says he was always the one to allegedly inject her, she swears he used clean needles every time — which Dr. Drew was skeptical about.
Barbara Evans: It Will Be A ‘Long Time’ Until Jenelle Gets Custody Of Jace
When her mom Barbara Evans came out, she admitted that after witnessing her daughter strung out on heroin and living with an addict, she had to do what she needed to as a mom — and got her committed because she thought Jenelle was going to die.
Because of Jenelle’s unstable behavior, she said it would be a while until she lets her have custody, or even more visitation with Jenelle’s son Jace, 3. She can see him Thursday through Sunday, but doesn’t trust Jenelle for any more days than that.
Babs also said she thought Gary was a good guy at first, until he allegedly turned violent on Jenelle. But she definitely knows Kieffer is bad news, and hopes her daughter never ever goes back to him.
Kailyn Lowry: I Want To Rip Vee’s Head Off
Dr. Drew tried to reason with Kailyn Lowry about her baby daddy Jo Rivera‘s girlfriend Vee Torres, and said he doesn’t think Kail is giving her enough of a chance. Ragardless, Kailyn can’t seem to let go the pot smoking photos she saw online, and thus only lets her son Isaac, 3, around Vee occasionally and if Jo is there. She says she wants to rip Vee’s head off and has no desire to even try and getto know her.
But even though Jo is a doting and loving dad, she her marriage to Javi Marroquin means they could move across the country based on his Air Force assignments — and Jo and Isaac could be hundreds of miles away from each other. Jo is willing to fight that in court, and even Dr. Drew thinks Kailyn’s decision to move is unfair.
Kailyn and Javi insist it’s better for Isaac to have good insurance and attend a good school, which is why they married so she can reap his military benefits.
Vee Torres Reveals — I’m Not Doing Anything Kailyn Thinks I Am
When Dr. Drew brought Vee out on the stage, it’s the first time Kailyn officially met Vee (if you can call their on-stage awkwardness “meeting). Vee said she actually has nieces and nephews, and is studying to be a teacher so she’s good with kids. Vee actually wants what’s best for Isaac, and says she’s not a bad person like Kailyn thinks.
After Dr. Drew keeps asking Kailyn why she doesn’t want to get to know Vee, and reiterates that Vee is a major part of Isaac’s life. Kail storms off the stage and is sick of all of the back-and-forth. It looks like there’s no hope for any peaceful and successful co-parenting.
