Jenelle Evans


What a tangled web Jenelle Evans seems caught up in.

The Teen Mom 2 star, busted earlier this week for allegedly threatening and making harassing phone calls to her ex-roommate Hannah Inman, had previously accused the guy who's now living with Inman of cyberstalking her.

You follow so far?

Well, the target of Evans' allegations, James Duffy, says he's innocent and today he gave his side of the story exclusively to E! News.

Duffy, who says Evans worked for him briefly (like, a few hours) at his guitar-making business, calls the MTV star the real cyberbully in this case.

"Jenelle is a jilted lover of mine," he told E! News, claiming that the two of them had an off-and-on, more-than-friends relationship for about two months.

The trouble started, Duffy said, when he let Inman move into a second bedroom in his home. She and Evans parted ways on bad terms, so Evans was nursing a grudge, Duffy contined.

In an affidavit filed Jan. 9 in Brunswick County Court, Inman alleges that Evans showed up at Duffy's house on Dec. 29 and threatened to "ruin my life, beat my ass and eventually kill me."

"She has sent numerous text messages and has made my life a living hell. I am one of the latest victims and I am scared for my life," Inman's complaint states. "Jenelle destroy peoples lives using her Facebook fan page of 110,000 members as a weapon to bully people around."

Well, Evans does maintain an active Facebook page.

Following her latest arrest, she wrote: "Lmao she's mad cuz I took out charges first on Duffy for cyber stalking. She claims that she move out becuz I said I would 'eventually kill her' when clearly her old phone has texts that states 'look I'm moving out to yr house Duffy so we can move to new jersey so I can get famous for my singing'. Yes u set me up and yes u will go down. CAN'T WAIT FOR COURT!"

Duffy told E! News, meanwhile, that Evans "blew a gasket" when he posted a picture on his Facebook page taken when he and Inman went out to celebrate his birthday.

"She made all these allegations that I was her former boss, that I sexually harassed her, which is why she quit, and that I drugged her," Duffy said.

"When I signed up on Jan. 5 on Twitter, over 2,000 people came to the site and bashed me, calling me a pervert," Duffy said. "Jenelle controls 400,000 fans and she uses them to bash people. She has done it to Hannah, to me and to the girl, Brittany, that she beat up. She bashes people on a weekly basis on her fan page. She uses it as a weapon."

(Evans copped to simple affray and was sentenced to probation in connection with that fight, as were Brittany Truett and Nicole Maggard.)

Duffy plans on filing for a restraining order against Evans, he said.

In response to Duffy's allegations, meanwhile, Evans' attorney, Dustin Sullivan, tells E! News, "Everyone deserves their day in court, no matter how egregious and absurd their claim may be."

And more than one day is coming!

Evans is due in court to face Inman's charges on Feb. 7, and Duffy will be there Feb. 8 to answer to Evans' charge that he cyberstalked her.
