Yesterday, Radar Online broke the news that Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was involved in a car accident on April 26 that led to Jenelle pulling a gun on the other driver while one of her sons sat in the passenger seat of her car.
The Ashley has some new information to add about this terrifying incident.
As Radar reported, a driver claimed Jenelle “hit his truck, ran over his mailbox and pulled a gun on him.” He also stated that Jenelle followed him onto his property after he tried to pass her car on the road. (Jenelle claimed in a 911 call made after the incident that the other driver “purposely slammed on the brakes” to hit her.) A deputy confirmed in the police report that “Suspect [Jenelle] hit two vehicles in the yard and then she pulled a 10-84/G [suspect has a gun].”
A behind-the-scenes source tells The Ashley that Jenelle did pull out a gun from her car… and MTV was there to capture the moment!
“The whole thing was definitely filmed,” the source tells The Ashley. “It was all filmed on GoPro cameras. There was a full crew was there.”
Jenelle told a 911 operator that, “[The other driver] is trying his hardest for me not to behind him anymore. He is literally going crazy, swerving in and out of lanes.” (She failed to mention that she pulled a gun out while discussing the incident with the 911 operator.)
The source also gave The Ashley more info on what happened.
“It was Jace in the car with Jenelle,” the source said. “They were going to get ice cream after Jace’s therapy session and this happened. She flew into a rage.”
The source told The Ashley that the MTV execs are “furious” over what happened.
“The higher-ups–and not the show higher-ups but the network execs– have the footage and are figuring out what to do with it,” the source said. “They’re extremely upset by what they’re seeing.”
This incident comes just a few months after Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, was fired from the show after going on a homophobic Twitter rant, and about six months after David pulled a knife out at the last ‘Teen Mom 2’ Reunion taping. As The Ashley previously told you, the show’s producers made the decision to show viewers the knife-pulling incident, and it will be featured in the upcoming season of ‘Teen Mom 2.’
“This latest gun-pulling incident has a lot of people– cast and crew– freaked out since the reunion is coming up in a few weeks,” the source tells The Ashley. “Because of David pulling a knife, everyone now has to go through metal detectors before entering the soundstage, but there’s still a concern that Jenelle could bring a weapon to set.”
To top things off, Jenelle and David have been engaged in a social media fight with Jenelle’s co-stars Kail Lowry and Leah Messer for the last few weeks.
“A lot of the cast and crew are feeling angry at the show’s producers for allowing it to get to this point,” another source told The Ashley. “They wanted the drama, and now it’s too big for them to handle.”
Stay tuned! The Ashley will update this story when more info becomes available.
