Teen Mom Jenelle Evans breaks down in tears as fan praises her for leaving behind dark drug addiction past
JENELLE Evans broke down in tears as a fan praised her for overcoming her drug addiction.
The Teen Mom 2 alum, 29, was addicted to heroin and previously revealed she would "shoot up four or five times" a day.
On Thursday, a fan praised the reality star for leaving behind her dark past and focusing on her children.
As Jenelle listened to the fan – with her daughter Ensley, four, in her lap – she burst into tears.
The woman said: "I have been rewatching the Teen Mom 2 series and so many times in this series I want to scream, 'Give her some credit, people.'
"I see such a turnaround in you in such a short period of time. God, you went through hell, girl.
"I see you become a mom, a recovering addict, a wife and most of all, I see you become truly happy in our life."
As Jenelle wiped away tears, the fan concluded: "I am so proud of you, you are such an inspiration and I love you."

The Teen Mom star talked about her heroin addiction in her 2017 memoir, Read Between the Lines: Diary of a Teenage Mom.
"My first trip was amazing. I won't glamorize the drug by going into the long details of why people love it so damned much," she wrote.

"Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked."
She said she distanced herself from her loved ones because of her substance abuse.
"I disowned my mother and siblings and friends,” she said. “But the truth is no one wants to talk to you when they suspect you’re a junkie.”
Jenelle was arrested several times for drug-related charges as her addiction deepened, and even led to her mom Barbara taking custody of her son Jace.
The MTV star kicked the addiction after going to rehab in New Jersey and credited Barbara with helping her get back on her feet when she left.
"For all of our problems, I owe her for what she did that day,” she wrote. “I called her and told her what kind of trouble I was in, and how I needed help."
She no longer does heroin, but has admitted to smoking weed with her husband David Eason.
Back in June, fans claimed she looked "high" after noticing her "dilated pupils" in a video celebrating David's birthday.
However, the TV personality clapped back at the claims and said her eyes' appearance was simply down to the anti-anxiety medication she takes.
