We'll let Jenelle Evans field that one herself:

"Yes," the Teen Mom 2 trainwreck tells E! News. "We are back together."

What the what?!

How about those pesky assault allegations she made against her on-off-back-on slacker of a boyfriend, Kieffer Delp? And the ones he in turn lobbed back at her?

Those are history. Along with reconciliation, Jenelle, 19, and Kieffer, 20, agreed to drop their dueling complaints.

The dynamic duo, who while together were homeless, caught using drugs and stealing her mother's credit cards for an impromptu road trip—which resulted in Jenelle's firing from her waitressing job. (Kieffer, a high school dropout, hasn't expressed any interest in joining the ranks of the employed.) Jenelle was shown on Teen Mom 2 sleeping in her car after she ran out of cash and Kieffer hightailed it back to New Jersey.

But all that drama is apparently forgotten.

Added bonus: Jenelle will also avoid jail...at least for now.

See, the Teen Mom star was facing some quality time behind bars for contempt of court for skipping a hearing in the now-dismissed assault case. But her lawyer tells us the judge let it slide after Jenelle finally made it to court yesterday and explained she had car trouble and didn't have cash for a cab.

"Her mom was not able to give her a ride [either], "says attorney Dustin Sullivan. "She has been in court every single time and that was the only time she missed a hearing. Once we explained that to the court, they dismissed the contempt charge."

But Jenelle's legal troubles do not end there. Baby Jace's teen mom is facing multiple misdemeanor charges from two separate cases.

On April 14, Jenelle has a hearing on counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and breaking and entering.

Then, on April 29, Jenelle has another hearing regarding the charges against her of breaking and entering, injury to real property, trespassing and making harassing phone calls. Sullivan says he hopes that all the charges against his client will be dismissed.

Is it too much to hope that Jenelle will dismiss Kieffer?
