‘Teen Mom 2’: Jenelle Evans Shows Up On Instagram With a Brand New Man

It looks like Jenelle Evans is back in a relationship. While the former Teen Mom 2 star hasn’t exactly introduced her new love interest to her fans, she’s been busy liking every single one of his Instagram pictures in recent days and has shown up in his Instagram story more than once. Things seem to be moving pretty quick for Evans, who just filed for divorce from her husband of two years, David Eason, in November 2019, but that doesn’t come as a big surprise. Fans have assumed Evans was seeing someone since she left North Carolina for Nashville, Tennessee. There seem to be a couple of glaring issues with her new love, though.

Who is Evans’ rumored boyfriend?

While Evans has been trying to keep the new beau off her Instagram page, he doesn’t seem to be interested in doing the same. Eagle-eyed fans spotted Evans on the Instagram feed of a man named Herbert Wilkinson. Wilkinson is a 31-year-old who was born and raised in Massachusetts, and he has the accent to go along with it.

It is unknown how the pair met, but it doesn’t look like Wilkinson lives down in Tennessee, which is where Evans is currently residing. Wilkinson’s LinkedIn profile suggests he still lives in Massachusetts, but the pair have reportedly been making regular trips to see each other, according to Inquistr.

Wilkinson and Evans do have one thing in common it would seem – reality TV. Wilkinson appeared on an MTV reality show back in 2010 with his then-girlfriend Noelle Trudeau. Trudeau later went on to appear on the reality TV series, Breaking Boston, according to Starcasm. The show they appeared on together, Is She Really Going Out With Him, also featured Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame.

He’s no stranger to the police

Wilkinson, just like Evans’ past love interests, has had a couple of run-ins with the police, although he doesn’t seem to be on the same level as Eason. In 2012, the then 23-year-old was picked up by Massachusetts police for suspicions of driving under the influence. The outcome of the incident is unknown.

According to Patch, Wilkinson was tried for assault in 2013. The charge stemmed from a 2011 incident. According to the police blotter, Wilkinson approached a man while driving got out of the car and punched him in the face. The police responded. It is not known if Wilkinson knew the man he attacked.

Has David Eason commented on the recent development?

While Evans is trying to keep a low profile, fans can assume that Eason has heard about her new beau by now. For the first time ever, Eason is staying quiet. While he has updated his Instagram Story in the last 24 hours, he has failed to mention Evans’ new love interest. That, however, can change at any time.

Eason has been posting fairly regularly, but it would seem that he’s heeding the judge’s warning to avoid speaking about Evans on social media. Most recently, he posted a shoutout to a musician he likes, and before that he shared a photo of himself and his daughter, Maryssa, in front of a Christmas tree.  Evans and Eason will face off in court again on Jan. 13. Evans has a restraining order against Eason at least until that date. The judge can choose to extend the order further if they still feel that Eason is a threat to Evans.
