Teen Mom 2’s Nathan Griffith was arrested Wednesday afternoon for an alleged domestic violence incident involving his on-off fiancee, Jenelle Evans.
There were multiple altercations between the couple at their home throughout the day, police confirm. Things ended with Nathan demanding the engagement ring back from Jenelle and snatching it off her finger so hard he cut her.
Now, additional sources talk about what led up to that fight. According to insiders who spoke to E! News, Jenelle suspected that Nathan cheated on her. “He’s been talking to another girl for two weeks,” claims the source. He “felt like he cheated on someone and then admitted he’s been seeing someone else for two weeks.”
Jenelle returned to the couple’s home Wednesday morning after staying at a hotel overnight. She planned to grab some belongings for school. Nathan reportedly “wouldn’t let her leave until she gave back the ring.”
A police report on the incident reveals, Nathan tried to force Jenelle to surrender the ring by pinning her “up on the toilet seat” to “wrestle” away the ring from her finger. In the end, he snatched it off and made her finger bleed. For which he was charged with domestic violence.
“It was a big deal but wasn’t a big deal,” the source says. “He didn’t intend to hurt [Jenelle] on purpose, but he shouldn’t have wrestled her or touched her, period.”
Nathan, for the record, insists that he “never touched” Jenelle. According to the police report, this is his version of events: “[Nathan] states [Jenelle] got upset with him and took the engagement ring off and threw it at him which caused the cut on her finger.” He adds, Jenelle has been “violent with him” leaving “old marks” on his back.
MTV were at the house filming Wednesday. However “the camera crew that was on scene told police they were outside at the time of the incident so they didn’t witness anything.” E! notes, once the arguing started inside, “MTV security came into the residence due to [Jenelle’s] screaming during the altercation.”
The insider claims Jenelle is done “sticking up for him”. They’re “completely over” this time. The source admits, “It’s over and she is looking for an apartment for her and the baby [Kaiser] today.”
UPDATE: Teen Mom 3’s Katie Yeager seemingly shaded Jenelle on Twitter.
It's girls who play the victim that make us actual victims look like crazy liars.
