“It’s not an engagement ring, it was just a gift from her boyfriend,” she told Celebuzz.
The controversial 20-year-old, who has a two-year-old son Jace, tweeted a picture of her donning the sparkler on her engagement ring finger Wednesday and wrote, “Courtland felt like spending money. He is inside the store for two hours and comes out and BAM!”
According to the reality star’s Twitter account, Rogers presented her with a white gold 1.5 carat princess cut diamond Bridge Bridal ring from the jewelry store Zales. And he spent a pretty penny — $3,299 — on the not-so-every-day gift.
Jenelle also responded to followers asking about her relationship status: “I have no idea!!! Probably not for a while,” she said of putting a ring on it officially.
Jenelle’s mom approves of her new beau, but doesn’t want the young mother to get hitched anytime soon.
“Jenelle does not need to be engaged,” she explained, “but he is a nice guy.”
Barbara, who has temporary custody of Jace, also added that MTV has accurately depicted her life with Jenelle, both good and bad, on the popular reality show. Things are still apparently rocky for the always-contentious mother-daughter duo.
“The show is exactly what it is. What the show documents is our life. It’s nothing but the truth. There’s no script. My life with Jenelle has not been good.
“There is always drama.”
