Jenelle Evans explains why Nathan Griffith and her mom fought during filming

Jenelle Evans and the cast of Teen Mom 2 are returning to MTV in January for the show's fifth season and ahead of the big premiere, the network has released a drama-filled trailer which includes a heated moment between Jenelle's mom and her new (at the time) boyfriend, Nathan Griffith.

In the clip, Nathan accuses Barbara Evans, Jenelle's mom and the caretaker of her son Jace, of allowing Jenelle to get hooked heroin. In response to Nathan's ridiculous comment, Barbara yells, "F**k you, I didn't put a needle in her arm!"

The fight was pretty surprising to fans, considering Jenelle has told them for months now that Barbara and Nathan get along great and that she is a huge fan. In fact, she told fans that Barbara loved Nathan just days into their relationship, which began back in June around the same time that filming began on season 5.

Once the clip went viral, Jenelle was bombarded with question in regard to the fight and quickly took to Twitter where she addressed the issue, telling fans, according to a December 19 report by Wetpaint, "My mom just thought he was too good to be true at first, started arguing."

In Barbara's defense, Nathan was "too good to be true." Shortly after they began dating, his criminal record was made public and the world was exposed to how good he really was. Then, it was revealed that he had a child, but didn't have custody of her. And as if that weren't enough, fans then discovered that Jenelle had lied about his modeling and football career.

Oh, and that was all before he was arrested for driving drunk -- with Jenelle in the car.
