Posing in the surf in her designer bikini, Teen Mom Jenelle Evans was clearly enjoying the attention, despite chilly temperatures, on Oak Island, N.C., on Feb. 24. The “girls’ day out” with her roommate and best friend Tori Rhyne started with morning manicures and spray tans. Then, the duo stopped at Island Wave Restaurant for some sodas before hitting the sand, where Jenelle showed off the body she works hard for in the gym every week. Her 1-year-old son Jace was nowhere in sight.
Since signing over custody of Jace to her mom, Barbara, Jenelle’s visits with her child sometimes take a backseat to other things in her life. “She says she tries to see him at least once a day, to feed him or put him down for a nap,” her ex Kieffer Delp tells OK!, “but on weekends, Jenelle often skips out on her duties to party with her friends. She’s addicted to being popular.”
Kieffer says Jenelle devotes countless hours to her image with shopping trips, Facebook updates and photo shoots — while Barbara takes care of Jace. After dating Jenelle since fall 2010, Kieffer blames their breakup on her growing fame. “She began to be demanding, boss people around and act like a star,” he tells OK!. They broke up during Jenelle’s February trip to L.A., he says, while she was
filming the Teen Mom 2 reunion show with Dr. Drew Pinsky. “I just couldn’t take it anymore,” Kieffer says. “She’s let all the hype go to her head.”
