Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans and beau Nathan Griffith have reportedly broken off their engagement, and Evans says she's ready to focus on herself and on being a mom.

Evans just told Us Weekly in June that she was ready to give fiance Nathan Griffith another chance after the two split up earlier in the year, but apparently things just didn't work out. She told Entertainment Tonight that she's not in a place where she wants to be with someone.

“I’m enjoying being a mom. I just celebrated my first son's 6th birthday this weekend and it went fantastic. I am not looking to date anyone at the moment. I am focusing on myself," Evans said.

The couple have broken up and gotten back together more than once, so there's a possibility they will again, especially since they share a child and will still be in each other's lives. Evans also has a 6-year old son, Jace, who lives with her mother.

Griffith was reportedly the one who broke things off this time after an argument about not being able to go out with his friends. Jenelle was arrested earlier this year for domestic violence after she reportedly showed up at Griffith's home and attacked him. The arrest was allegedly her 15th. Her attorney, Amy S. Lawrence, said that the attack came about because Jenelle was hurt.

“She’s just…I think that in her heart she thought that maybe with them breaking up that they would get back together because they have a child together. And I think she’s just very hurt that he has moved on," Lawrence said of Jenelle Evans.
