On Wednesday morning, an article on E! News said that Evans was the one who was hospitalized and even included direct quote from Evans about her condition. The story even included quotes from a source about how Evans had been "quietly dealing" with lupus and how the "extreme stress she has been under with the fight to get the kids back" caused her to be hospitalized.
The Blast published an article about Evans, trusting E! News' reporting. We have since updated our story to reflect the correct information.
We investigated the matter and according to sources close to Jenelle, the person who gave the story to E! News explicitly said the story was about Martson. The representative works with both Evans and Martson.
We're told the same person who was involved in the story saw E! News' incorrect story and immediately called them confused about the mix-up.
The news outlet then updated the article to be all about Martson, with no mention of Evans or the mistake.
The Blast reached out to E! News for comment but they have yet to respond.
