On Young and Pregnant, Jade has expressed her concern over her mother’s struggle with drug abuse. “I’m hoping my mom will be able to help me when the baby gets here, but I’m not sure I can count on her because my parents have struggled with addiction in the past,” she explained. “My mom has been in and out of jail and rehab many times growing up. It did affect me a lot.”
RadarOnline.com exclusively broke that her mom Christine Smith was arrested for possession of cocaine and theft on March 8, 2014. The Greenwood Police Department responded when Christine was observed “selecting items from the store, specifically two items of clothing valued at $15.50 and removed their tags.” She was stopped by security outside of the store and admitted to the theft.
More Sad Details
“Smith’s behavior was erratic and eyes glazed,” the arrest affidavit read. “Security searched her for their protection and hers, and found a glass pipe in her purse, along with a plastic bag with rock cocaine inside of it, which was also found inside of her purse.” A spot test on the narcotics tested positive for cocaine. “Ms. Smith admitted she bought the crack cocaine and had done some before entering the store,” the court papers read.
She agreed to a plea deal and pled guilty to conversion, which is attempt to commit, while the other charges were dismissed on August 11, 2014. She was sentenced to 365 days in jail with 361 days suspended. She was placed on probation for 365 days. She was also ordered to complete substance abuse evaluation and treatment.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com in October 2018, she revealed she is estranged from her mother. “We’re not on talking terms,” she said. “She doesn't care about her life. I care a lot about my life. I don’t want to be around people so negative and down.”
Jade, 22, has been involved in a drug scandal of her own. Jade posted a mirror selfie. Next to her appeared to be a white substance, a rolled up dollar bill and an ID card. She declined to comment when RadarOnline.com contacted her.
Baby Daddy Drama
Jade has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with her baby daddy Sean Austin, who she shares daughter Kloie with. Last season, she forced him to take a drug test, which he failed.
Despite her family issues, she’s close to her grandma. But in November 2018, she revealed her grandma’s devastating cancer diagnosis. She asked fans to contribute to her GoFundMe page to help pay for medical bills.
On part three of the reunion special, Jade revealed her parents have been arrested again. “In my new season, both of my parents were just incarcerated,” she said. “They’ve been strung out for so long. They’re binge addicts. It hurts because I’ve grown up and I haven’t had my mom there.”
She added of her biological father, "My real dad committed suicide when I was six months old. That was the only dad I've ever known. My real dad never loved me enough to stay."
