Believe it or not, it's only been six weeks since Jenelle Evans announced her separation from David Eason.
Given all the speculation, rumors, and unexpected twists that have filled those six weeks, it might occasionally seem like it's been much longer.
But Jenelle has been a single woman for less than two months, which is why we were caught off guard by reports that there's already a new man in her life.
Fortunately, Jenelle's not the type to keep quiet when it comes to rumors about her personal life.
And this week, she stunned many fans with her response to the claims that she's found someone new.
Take a look:
Rumors Are Flying
Jenelle Evans just announced her split from David Eason on October 31. But already, there are reports that she's moved on to a new relationship.
Granted, it seems that David himself is the source of some of those rumors, and he doesn't have the greatest track record when it comes to telling the truth. More on that later.
So who is it that Jenelle is allegedly involved with? Well, at least two candidates have emerged as possible rebound pieces. One sort of makes sense. The other ... not so much.
Nate the Great
First, there's Nathan Griffith. We probably should have seen this rumor coming, especially since Nate and Jenelle have become very close in recent weeks.
Nothing to See Here
To be fair, it looks as though their relationship is purely platonic, and their primary concern is co-parenting their son, Kaiser.
Bound to Happen
Still, the internet is the internet, and with the way Jenelle and Nathan have been flaunting their newly-repaired relationship lately, dating rumors were inevitable.
The New Guy
Okay, so Jenelle almost certainly isn't dating Nathan, and most people who tweet about this sort of thing seem to realize that. But that doesn't mean the rumors that she's got a new man in her life will be going away anytime soon.
That's Travis Tidwell on the left. He's a professional musician who you might remember from the Eason family trip to Nashville back in early October
A Rapid Deterioration
Little did Jenelle and David know it was the last trip they would take as a couple and Jenelle would be LIVING in Nashville sans David just a few weeks later.
Romance In Music City
Anyway, the rumor goes that Jenelle hit it off with Travis during her vacation, and she later chose Nashville as her safe haven so that she could be closer to her new man.
Not Much There
It's not the wildest theory out there, but it seems to be rooted in nothing more than the fact that Travis lives in Nashville, and Jenelle recently moved to Nashville.
Granted, something about the city seems to have struck a chord with Evans, but it's not so outlandish that, when choosing a new home, she'd simply settle on the last place she visited.
Grasping at Straws
Sure, it's possible that she made the acquaintance of some charming young musician while on vacation with her family, but other than the fact that they took a picture together, there's no reason to believe that man was Travis.
Clearing the Air
Jenelle took to Twitter on Monday to address the rumors. While she didn't mention Nathan or Travis by name, she made it clear that there's no new man in her life.
A Nice Change of Pace
For once, we actually believe Jenelle. And most of her followers seemed to agree that she appears to be telling the truth this time.
"You have your family to focus on," tweeted one encouraging fan. "That's not a relationship, that's a commitment. You're doing a great job Jenelle."
"Probably a good thing," another follower wrote. "Take a solid year or 2 to focus on yourself and your kids. Only way things are gonna get better."
The Source of the Rumors
But some followers were quick to point out that there's good reason to believe Jenelle has a new man in her life.
"Not according to David," one follower wrote in response to Jenelle's tweet.
Yes, it seems David claimed that Jenelle has a new man in a series of Facebook posts that have since been deleted or made private.
Again, David is a known liar, and there's no reason to believe he's changed his ways in the weeks since Jenelle left him. But it's possible he has access to information that has yet to go public.
Problems Of His Own
Interestingly. David has also been the subject of dating rumors this week, thanks to some cozy photos he posted with a female "friend."
Some eagle-eyed fans noticed that David appears to have posed for a selfie while sitting in a car with his mystery woman.
This Freakin' Guy
One fan took the initiative to confront David about the rumors. And naturally, Eason denied them.
Of course, no one is convinced by his claims, as lying comes as naturally to David as breathing.
Sifting Through the BS
It'll be tough to sort fact from fiction in the weeks to come, as Jenelle and David are both notoriously allergic to the truth. But you can be sure we'll continue to monitor the situation and keep you apprised of all new developments.
