While Teen Mom 2 villain Jenelle Evans is making peace with Barbara, she’s still having plenty of conflicts.
In addition to feuding with other Teen Moms, she has also attracted the ire of her own brother, Colin Evans.
Colin is hitting back at claims she has made about him … and accusing their father of having sexually abused him for five years.
“She lies more than Donald trump,” Colin writes in a scathing post on Facebook.
In case there was any doubt, he makes it clear that he is talking about his sister by adding, in parentheses, “Jenelle Evans.”
In her book, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, she claims that Colin had developmental problems and that he once accidentally burned down their home.
“My entire house was not burnt down to the ground at all,” Colin insists.
“Keep on all the lies and for ur info lil sis I’m not developmentally challenged,” he asserts.
Colin shared a photo of a fully intact house, then demands that Jenelle “stop lieing for ur fame.”
This is when his post takes a much more serious turn.
“I’m PTSD from our father sexual abused me for 5 years and beat me and starved me,” Colin writes.
Colin continues: “and i almost died in prison and all u care about is your money (jenelle Evans) lil sis.”
“And u never say hi u don’t care about any one but your self,” Colin concludes. “So keep up the lies lil sis.”
Now, Colin did accidentally start a fire when he was a boy when one his toy cars caught on fire.
Afterwards, he was sent to live in group home in Texas for two years. Colin was only 9 years old.
Starcasm notes that Colin has had legal troubles as an adult.
His rap sheet includes larceny, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, injury to personal property, and communicating threats.
None of those sound especially serious — a couple of them shouldn’t even be crimes — but they paint an unflattering portrait of Colin as a troubled man.
We have to say that Colin’s history of petty crimes fits a profile of someone who is overcoming childhood trauma.
That of course does not mean that everyone who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse commits a string of petty crimes, or vice-versa.
But it’s not uncommon to see someone struggle to cope with their traumatic childhood as they enter adulthood.
Children are not equipped to handle trauma in the way that adults are, and can suffer lifelong consequences as a result.
Some would suggest that Jenelle’s history of drug use and her relationships with terrible men and her poor quality as a parent are indicators of someone who came from a deeply troubled home.
Colin has recently shared that he is hoping to avoid appearing on MTV in the near future.
It looks like he has also grown paranoid about “the Illuminati organization.” Sometimes, people who are troubled can fixate on fictitious entities.
He has said that he doesn’t want anything to do witht he Illuminati or with Satan, saying that he doesn’t have a family of his own, but that Jesus is all of the family that he needs.
It looks like he also went through a breakup with a woman very recently, and is heartbroken over it.
Obviously, the accusations of sexual and physical abuse that he has leveled at his father are very serious.
While adults are of course responsible for their own actions, these allegations do help to explain his behavior, if not excuse them.
