‘Teen Mom 2’ has shown some of the worst moments of Jenelle’s relationship with Nathan Griffith. We saw Nathan verbally and emotionally abuse Jenelle when he told her she should get an abortion just minutes after hearing their unborn child’s heartbeat. We also saw a conversation Jenelle had with her mother in which she says Nathan “choked her out.” Later on a video surfaced online of an unpleasant argument between the 2 of them, in which Nathan was screaming at Jenelle. Their fighting also resulted in Jenelle being arrested at one point during her pregnancy because it became a disturbance to the neighborhood.
Despite all of that Jenelle still feels that this is the best relationship that she has ever been in, and that they are stable and happy. Jenelle recently tweeted: “I’m so blessed to have the relationship with [Nathan] like I do. Breaking up every other day is a sad & unhappy relationship.” She later went on to tell WetPaint.com, “previous relationships I’ve had on the show haven’t really been steady, they’ve been on and off, and finally I met Nathan. We’ve just been going steady from day one.” …. Huh? Surely she hasn’t forgotten some of the horrific things that have happened in their relationship over the past 11 months that they have been together. Including an old friend of Nathan’s coming forward about their emotional relationship. Nathan’s “friend” Nayla also says that Nathan is only in this relationship for the money and that he hasn’t been happy in the relationship. (Listen to an interview with her here. Skip to 50:55)
Jenelle also told the site “I mean, we’ve had rough patches in the past, of course, but you know we’re past them now. I just think we just understand that we want a future together. My other exes — I think they’re just too immature and wanting to party so much. They just didn’t want to settle down, and Nathan does.” What do you think of Jenelle’s statements? Do you think she’s living in denial? Or do you think these two really have worked past their major issues? Either way their baby is due next month!
