AceShowbiz - Whitney Purvis had a run-in with the law. The former star of "16 and Pregnant" was taken into police custody after she allegedly made "terroristic threats and acts," according to newly-unveiled jail records.
As stated in the documents, the 30-year-old reality star was booked into Bartow County, Georgia jail on October 14, 2021. She was arrested for the shocking felony from an alleged incident that occurred on September 27 that year.
In Whitney's mug shot, Whitney looked disheveled, way different from her young and sprightly teen appearance in season 1 of "16 and Pregnant". In the booking photograph, she was wearing a dark gray baggy T-shirt. Her hair seemed unbrushed and she appeared to be tired and grim.
Until this time, more details about the exact nature and events of the alleged incident have not been revealed. One month after her arrest, Whitney posted a cryptic post on Facebook. She wrote on November 10, "One month and I'm so proud. Not to be cheesy, but after two really rough years, I'm finally starting to love and believe in myself again."
"I truly apologize if you've met me or had to deal with me during this toxic period," Whitney continued. The former star of "Teen Mom" went on to confess, "I was a really lost, hurt, angry, and traumatized person with some pretty terrible coping mechanisms and didn't know how to deal with any of what life was throwing at me."
Whitney then elaborated, "Never underestimate the power of therapy, self discipline, and God." She concluded her post as saying, "Time to finally grow and live up to my potential and learn to stop self-sabotaging (and I lost 15 pounds, 15 more and I'm at my weight goal!)."
Whitney is remembered by fans as a 16-year-old Georgia teen who lived in her grandma's trailer throughout her pregnancy. She gave birth to her son Weston Owen Gosa, whom she shares with her then-boyfriend Weston Lewis Gosa, in 2009.
Whitney has still maintained a solid social media presence through the years. She is the owner of a catering company, Crocadilly Catering, according to her Instagram profile. On her page, she often posts photos of her 12-year-old son, her culinary creations and glammed up selfies.
