JENELLE Evans’ podcast cohost Gabrielle Egan confirmed the former Teen Mom 2 star has been fired despite her denial, as the cast “lost followers” and “got hate.”
Jenelle, 29, announced she is co-hosting and producing a new podcast called Girl S#!t, which features 90 Day Fiance star Deavan Clegg and influencers including Gabrielle.

But on the night of the launch party, Girl S#!t revealed on Instagram that Jenelle would not be attending due to “unforeseen circumstances."
While Jenelle blamed "cancel culture” for why she wasn’t at the party, she insisted she has not been fired from the podcast.
But Gabbie exclusively told The Sun Jenelle “was let go” because of her past, which includes her husband, David Eason, admitting to shooting and killing the family dog Nugget for snapping at their daughter Ensley, now 4.
Gabbie said: “I was told Jenelle was being let go from the production because of new information that was discovered about her past and a lot of the cast was uncomfortable working with her.
“Since posting with Jenelle, a lot of us have lost followers, received a lot of hate for even being associated with her. From what I know, Jenelle is no longer associated with Girl S#!t.”
Gabbie added: “Jenelle was a part of the cast. She did help with finding cast members, and help ‘run the show.’ She was one of the main girls, who personally reached out to me to be a part of this project as well.”
But Gabbie clarified that the women all work for a separate producer of Girl S#!t, not for the former MTV star.
Despite the Instagram page announcing Jenelle would not be attending the launch party, Jenelle did post from the event.
Gabbie said: “She did show up at the event for the launch party, but she wasn’t allowed into the VIP area with all the other girls from the podcast.”
She said of her time with Jenelle and her husband: “I really liked Jenelle and David in person, they were very nice to me and this whole thing makes me really sad.”
The podcast, which Jenelle announced on Tuesday, was set to air on April 1.
Jenelle blamed "cancel culture” for why she wasn’t at the event on Wednesday night.
The fired Teen Mom 2 star said on TikTok: "You know the cancel culture s**t, that's basically why. So I'm going to sip this drink – oh s**t I'm out – and you guys enjoy yourself at the party.”
She added: "I hope you're having a great time, because none of you are talking to each other.”
The mom of three also shared a video of herself lip-syncing with David while eating their meal, which she captioned: "Everyone hates @easondavid but 'Life’s a betch and here’s here dude.’”
But then on Instagram Thursday morning, Jenelle insisted: “There are a lot of rumors I woke up to saying Deavan got me fired from this thing when I’m her producer and I actually hand-chose Deavan to join. So with that being said, I am not fired and we don’t know what’s going to be happening with the podcast right now.
“But I do know as soon as I get home I have all the equipment to set up mine. I know you guys want to hear from me. You’ll hear from me soon. Maybe this will be a YouTube video. We’ll see.”
In a second video, which has been deleted, Jenelle said of the dog-killing scandal: "It's pretty s***ty of a person to try to hold something against someone that happened years ago like we talk about all the time.
"To ruin their opportunities in life. Like that's s***ty. It's really s***ty and you know I thought I chose a good group of girls, but sometimes things don't work out the way it's planned.
"But that's okay. There's always hiccups along the way.”

90 Day Fiance blogger John Yates claimed Deavan voiced her concerns of Jenelle being part of the project.
The blogger said: “Deavan wasn’t aware of Jenelle’s backstory… she did not know about Jenelle’s past. When Deavan brought it up to the powers that be and voiced her concerns, as well as the other people on the podcast voiced their concerns about Jenelle’s checkered past, that was enough for Jenelle to get fired.
“In a way, you can say that it was Deavan. Once she found out about the checkered past, she was like, ‘I can’t support that. I can’t be involved with someone who has, like, dog-murderings.’”
