Nathan who? Jenelle Evans doesn’t need a man on her arm to walk the red carpet — she just needs her mom! The Teen Mom 2 star brought fan favorite Barbara Evans as her plus-one to MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 30, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The 23-year-old mom of two — who recently split from ex-fiance Nathan Griffith — showed off her revenge body on the red carpet in a flashy body-hugging white and silver sequined dress from Brooklyn boutique Versailles. Meanwhile, Barbara opted for a more low-key black and blue dress with a matching shrug.

But the two posed for more than just red carpet photos. Jenelle later shared an Instagram pic from inside the venue of herself, Babs, and none other than Dr. Drew Pinsky, the host of the Teen Mom reunion shows. 

“Look who we are sitting next to,” she captioned the shot.

The reality personality seemed a bit starstruck as well, and also shared a snap on Instagram of herself and her mom with Grammy-winning singer Miguel.

“Highlight of my night… @Miguel telling me I had beautiful eyes. #Melted,” she tweeted later.

The VMAs seemed to be a welcome distraction for Jenelle, who was arrested and charged with third-degree assault on Aug. 20 after allegedly throwing a glass at Griffith’s new girlfriend. She and Griffith ended their engagement for the second time recently. They share 13-month-old son Kaiser. She also has 6-year-old Jace, who is currently in Barbara’s custody. The mother-daughter fight over the little boy has been an ongoing story line on MTV’s hit reality series.
