Teen Mom Jenelle Evans shuts down claims she was 'high' in video and explains reason behind her 'dilated pupils'

JENELLE Evans has shut down claims she was "high" in a video where her pupils appeared to be dilated.

The Teen Mom 2 alum, 29, insisted the appearance of her eyes was simply a side-effect of her anti-anxiety medicine.

In a TikTok video where Jenelle gushed over renting a new Airbnb for her husband's birthday earlier this week, fans noticed she was more animated than in other videos.

She laughed at her own jokes, seemed to be "sped up" and her blue eyes appeared to be almost completely black due to her dilated pupils.

After facing speculation that she was high, the MTV alum explained the real reason for her appearance in a follow-up TikTok.

She said: "Yeah, about that. I've been taking anxiety medicine for my esophagus. I have esophagus issues."


Jenelle explained that despite getting her esophagus "dilated" and having "endoscopies", she's been struggling with getting food stuck down her throat.

"Now more food is getting stuck so lately I've been taking more of my anti-anxiety medicine as needed," the mother-of-three said.

"Sometimes it makes my eyes dilated. Not lying to you, I have nothing to hide. Sorry.

"Sorry to burst your bubble but I am not on drugs. And if I am they are prescribed to me."


The Teen Mom alum captioned the video: "YES, my eyes are dilated."

This is not the first time that fans have believed Jenelle has filmed some of her videos while under the influence.

Earlier this month, she shared yet another video of herself while sitting outside – and┬áher eyes were completely bloodshot.

A fan posted the video to a Reddit group, pointing out that the star did not look like herself in the caption.


The follower posted: "Not even that filter can hide how high she looks, damn!"

The post prompted others to voice their concerns for the mom of three, claiming she looked "high as a kite."

Fans immediately took to Reddit to comment on her appearance, many calling her out for being "high af."


One fan commented: "Yeah, I'd say she's on something… she's way more animated and giddy than usual."

Fans will remember that during the earlier years of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle battled addiction, which caused her to lose custody of her son, Jace, to her mom Barb.

She even went to rehab and has now claimed she doesn't do any hard drugs, except weed with her husband David Eason.
