Jenelle Fesses Up To Using Drugs While Pregnant With Daughter Ensley
Rumors of ‘Teen Mom’ star Jenelle's drug abuse during her pregnancy have been circulating for quite some time, but no one has really known for sure if they’re true or not.
Jenelle has been open about her experience with substance abuse in the past- but did she really use drugs while she was expecting? The infamous reality star mom is finally coming clean, and you probably won’t like what she has to say about her past.
During an interview with “The Brand” podcast, Jenelle admitted that she tested positive for THC in the hospital after giving birth to her daughter, Ensley.
"I'm not going to lie about that. I tested positive for THC, and Ensley did not test positive. I did," Jenelle said. "So [Child Protective Services] were like—I was in the hospital—they said, 'Did you smoke when you were pregnant?' I said, 'I did within the past 30 days. I said I have really bad esophageal spasms and I throw up every 5 minutes, I can't even eat.' And they said, 'OK, some moms do that. We are not here to judge, we are writing down your information.'"
Jenelle went on to say that Child Protective Services carried out wellness tests and closed the case regarding her drug tests.
"After I had Ensley, they said CPS will just come by to do a check since you tested positive," she explained. "They came and did a checkup, and everything is fine. They closed the case."
Due to the intense online speculation about Jenelle’s drug abuse and parenting, she said that CPS came to her house to check up on her about “30 times”.
Despite her troubled past, Jenelle promises that she is completely clean these days.
"If I were on drugs, I wouldn't be able to sit here in the morning and get the kids ready and eat healthily," Jenelle said. "Or I'd be losing a lot of weight."
