Jenelle Evans has been on vacation in Los Angeles with her fiancé David Eason for a week now – and fans are slamming the Teen Mom 2 star for leaving her newborn at home! Evans exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com why she’s spending so much time away from her one-month old.
“I didn't want to come on this trip to LA, but I had to because of work,” Evans told Radar of the Teen Mom after show on Monday, February 27, which she did not attend because she caught the flu. “I put up a big fight for a week and they told me it was a huge deal for me to go. The producer was even calling my phone asking me to go.”
Evans tried to take her daughter Ensley on the trip, but the baby’s doctor advised against the idea.
Although Evans has remained in Los Angeles to attend Monday night’s upcoming after show, she insists she will be canceling the appearance.
“After finding out I could have stayed home like Chelsea Houska, I have changed my flight instead of staying for this upcoming live show,” she said. “MTV has still asked me to stay, but I told them I'm leaving no matter what I'm told.”
Evans has received backlash from fans throughout the week for being away from her daughter and sons Kaiser, 2, and Jace, 7.
“I’m sure MTV would FORCE a 5-week postpartum mom to do an after show,” one user fired, as another wrote, “I hear Jenelle is staying in Cali until the next after show… 10 consecutive days away from baby. That baby doesn’t know her.”
A third user wrote, “Where is your newborn infant? You left your newborn baby to fly to the show and didn’t even show up.”
But Evans didn't fire back against her fans, as she said, “I agree with everyone about leaving Ensley behind and I have been very upset about missing out on time with her and all my kids. I need to be home right now and work can be paused for the time being.”
Leaving her daughter wasn’t the only controversy, as she was also spotted with a suspicious-looking bruise on her eye in a now-deleted Snapchat photo.
“What bruise? Looks more like a shadow to me,” she told Radar. “I deleted the picture on Snapchat in the first place because I'm sick of everyone commenting on my life. I have deleted my twitter app and put Snapchat back on private for a while.”
