Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ Star, Jenelle Evans, Has a New Collaboration
Jenelle Evans’s career has been in a downward spiral for more than a year. After getting booted from Teen Mom 2, Evans tried her hand in the world of makeup. With a failed brow kit under her belt, she is ready to launch another venture. This time she’s collaborating with a marijuana dispensary.
Jenelle Evans announces she’ll create a cannabis-based moisturizer
Evans took to YouTube to share a recent business trip with her fans. She and her husband, David Eason, left North Carolina to visit a cannabis farm in Oregon. While the majority of her meeting was not filmed, Evans did share that she’ll be partnering with Burnt River Farms Cannabis Company to develop lotions.
Evans did not mention if the lotion will contain CBD, or if it will be hemp-based. She also didn’t share how she connected with the company. A release date has yet to be announced.
Burnt River Farms Cannabis Company already canceled one event with Jenelle and David
While Evans has a partner in Burnt River Farms Cannabis Company for her moisturizer, the company tried to distance themselves from Evans and Eason in July. According to The Hollywood Gossip, the company announced a Meet and Greet with Evans and Eason, but pulled back amid backlash.
Just like every other collaboration Evans has had in recent months, fans flocked to the company’s social media pages to denounce the association. Initially, Burnt River Farms Cannabis Company insisted all was fine, and they planned to go ahead with the event. Shortly before Evans and Eason were set to arrive, the company issued a statement that insisted they did not condone child abuse, racism, or animal abuse. The event was promptly canceled.
Jenelle’s new business announcement comes just weeks after fans claimed JE Cosmetics’ brow kits contained mold
Evans might be pretty excited about her upcoming business venture, but fans aren’t sure it will be successful, or even safe. In recent weeks, consumers who purchased the brow kit Evans released last year have taken to social media to claim the kits contain fungus. Evans denied the claims.
Consumers sounded the alarm about quality control on the brow kit when it initially launched, too. Several early buyers claimed the brow wax contained “hair-like fibers.” According to In Touch Weekly, XJ Beauty, the company that originally manufactured the kits, claimed the fibers were likely from the product’s velvet packaging. XJ Beauty and Evans have since parted ways.
