Shortly after her divorce from David Eason, Jenelle Evans patched up her relationship with Nathan Griffith, her previous ex and the father of her son Kaiser.
Fans applauded the move both for Kaiser's sake, and because Nathan is a vastly better human being than David.
But as a new report from TMZ reminds us, Nathan's got problems in his own right.
It seems that on New Year's Day, Nathan called the cops after his mother, Doris, crashed her car into his.
Because the crash happened on private property -- presumably the Griffiths' driveway -- police informed Nathan that they would be unable to take a report.
And that's when all hell broke loose.
Sources say Nathan and Doris got into screaming match in front of their house.
Nathan eventually bolted inside and locked his mother out.
When he later opened the door, he threatened to kill himself and then got in his car and drove away.
Understandably, Doris became upset and began repeatedly calling Nathan.
She says she called him more than 50 times before changing tactics and calling the police.
Police eventually located Nathan, who repeated his threats of self-harm.
Authorities were able to talk Griffith into going to a nearby hospital for a mental health evaluation.
After 5 hours of observation, he was released.
Shockingly, Nathan's son, Kaiser, was inside his house throughout this ordeal.
Speaking of the 5-year-old, it seems that while relations between his parents have improved considerably, the fight for custody of Kaiser continues to rage on.
Was his upcoming court battle weighing on Nathan's mind during his recent breakdown?
We may never know for sure.
Whatever the case, here's hoping Nathan is able to find the help he needs.
It's been a rough few weeks for Jenelle's exes, what with her troubled first husband, Courtland Rogers, going back to jail, possibly for a very long time.
We wouldn't wish this type of misfortune on anyone.
With the possible exception of David Eason, of course.
That guy deserves pretty much anything that happens to him.
