BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) — The star of MTV’s “Teen Mom 2″ was a no-show for a court appearance today.
The three girls involved in a viral fight video in Brunswick County had their case continued until July after Jenelle Evans failed to appear. Jenelle’s lawyer Dustin Sullivan says she has a good excuse. He says Jenelle is at an undisclosed location for rehabilitation and that his client is getting her act together.
“It was a voluntary commitment to inpatient treatment,” he said. “It wasn’t by the prodding of anybody. Not through the court, not necessarily through me. I advised her to do it, but this was her decision and her decision alone.”
Sullivan says he cannot say where Jenelle is, who is paying for the treatment, or what his client is being treated for, but he has positive feedback from the reality show star.
Jenelle’s new court date is set for July 22. Sullivan says he expects her to be in court.
