Jenelle Evans scored a major legal victory last week when she was found not guilty of assaulting Nathan Griffith's girlfriend in a trial that lasted less than a week.
Now, however, it seems that the Carolina Hurricane's celebrations may be short-lived, as her latest legal entanglement could make it that much easier for Griffith to prove that Jenelle is an unfit mother in their ongoing custody battle.
According to Radar Online, Tori Rhyne - Jenelle's best friend and frequent babysitter to her son Kaiser - was arrested earlier this month for possession of heroin, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
Rhyne was carrying more than half an ounce of pot, leading police to believe she was dealing.
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you've almost certainly seen Jenelle hanging out with Tori, who made her first appearance on the show back in season one, and has been a fixture ever since.
When Nathan called the CPS on Jenelle for allegedly kidnapping Kaiser back in November, it turned out that the boy was simply staying with Rhyne while Evans was out of town.
The agency paid a visit to Rhyne's home and found everything to be in order"
“They just saw that Kaiser was okay and then they left,” a source told Radar at the time.
“CPS told Jenelle that they would talk to her when she gets back and that’s all, but that everything looked okay and everything was fine.”
Now, Jenelle's inner circle is concerned not only for Kaiser's safety, but for Jenelle's sobriety.
After several stints in rehab, the mother of two reportedly appeared to be drunk at the MTV Movie Awards held earlier this month.
With the revelation that her closest friend has been using and possibly dealing, you can expect Jenelle's sobriety to be questioned at her upcoming custody hearings.
Evans has yet to speak publicly about Rhyne's arrest.
