In the wake of her recent arrest for child endangerment and drug offenses, 16 and Pregnant star Ebony Jackson-Rednon has checked into rehab, Star magazine has exclusively learned.
The teenage mom’s two-year-old daughter, Jocelyn, was taken into care following the incident in September and now the troubled reality star is seeking professional help in a treatment center for the second time.
Ebony and her husband, Joshua, both 19, had their toddler taken away by the state after a search of their home at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas resulted in the discovery of feces, fleas and maggots.
She spent a week in rehab for depression following the arrest, but her dad doesn’t think it was long enough. “They put her on medication and released her, and I didn’t feel you can give her help in a week’s time and then she’s better,” he told Star. “She needs to continue getting help.”
