MTV chronicled the romance between Nathan and Jenelle, and fans watched the couple meet, shack up, get engaged, and have a son named Kaiser, who is now two. Their volatile relationship ended in a custody battle, which was settled a few months ago.

Nathan and Jenelle have since moved on, with other partners. Nathan was last arrested in June, for drunk and disorderly conduct. We will update his latest run-in with the law, as details emerge.
