Jenelle Evans aborted Courtland Rogers' baby, or so she alleges in the new Teen Mom 2 trailer. Now her estranged husband is reacting to the bombshell.
“Nobody told me anything,” Rogers said in his first interview since being released from jail on January 11. “I did not know that Jenelle had gotten pregnant."
"She didn’t talk to me about getting an abortion.”
The Teen Mom 2 star revealed (or at least strongly suggested) that she terminated the unplanned pregnancy last winter and that Rogers was the father.
Said Rogers, who is still technically married to Jenelle, “It breaks my heart. It hurts a lot inside. The fact that I had a kid and I didn’t even know I had a kid.”
“It’s not fair that I found out about the pregnancy on a Teen Mom commercial! I didn’t know anything until I got out because I was trying to stay away from the drama."
Rogers said that if had he known he'd gotten Jenelle Evans pregnant, he would have been torn up about the situation and decision to keep the child or not.
“I would have been tremendously upset,” he laments.
“I would have like to have had a say in what happened, at least have Jenelle talk to me. Anything would have been better than finding out from television.”
Jenelle, of course, is now pregnant for a second time, again, with current partner Nathan Griffith. Both Courtland and Nathan are also single parents.
Rogers also claimed to be shocked when he learned that Taylor Lewis, the mother of his daughter JaJa, was privy to the abortion bombshell as well:
"Taylor always thought Jenelle was so cool. She said, ‘I’m on television so I guess being friends with Jenelle benefited me more than you did. She’s a stupid girl.”
“I can’t believe she wouldn’t run her mouth to me."
Despite being flummoxed at being the last to find out about Evans’ abortion, Rogers told Radar that he wishes her well in her new pregnancy with Griffith.
“It’s like the seven months of our relationship never happened," he said, striking a melancholy tone. "I’m glad she’s in love with somebody else.”
