Jenelle Evans Speaks After Parking Lot Altercations Outside Court

Jenelle Evans is speaking to the media after some courtroom altercations, plus rumors she calls “absurd.” Evans and her husband, David Eason, are currently fighting for custody of their kids after Eason shot and killed the family dog. An investigation concluded that the home was unsafe for the kids, and they were removed from the home. Jenelle’s son Jace and daughter Ensley are with her mother Barbara, while her son Kaiser is with his father, Nathan Griffith. Eason’s daughter Maryssa is with her maternal grandmother.

Evans has been very vocal about wanting to get her kids back, and posted on Instagram about the love a child has for their mother.

“It’s the little things in life,” she captioned a picture of herself wearing a necklace. “With everything that has been going on lately, I’ve come to realize a child’s love for their mother will never fade. No distance, not time, no person can change that special love. This necklace was given to me by my little bubba, Kaiser. He told me he wanted mommy to “match his”. My children are the sweetest and the best. 💞👧🏻👦🏼👦🏼 #MommasBabies#InMyHeart#AlwaysAndForever

However, things weren’t so lovey-dovey outside the court room. Evans and her mother got into a verbal argument when Evans gave her daughter a hug. Barbara seemed to take issue with it, saying that she only had half an hour to get Ensley lunch, so the longer Evans takes, Ensley will “go hungry.”

“I’m right outside the courthouse, giving my daughter a hug,” Evans said to her. “If you have a problem with it, then go get an officer because obviously she’s not scared. I’m hugging her.”

“It’s only for the cameras,” Barbara said, referencing the TMZ cameras that were outside the court room.

Evans has always had a tumultuous relationship with her mom, and told Us Weekly that her mom is likely acting out of jealousy.

“I do feel like my relationship with my mom is destroyed at this point,” Evans said. “This isn’t a way a mother should be treating her daughter. She fights so hard for my sister and my brother when they are the ones with major issues, not me. I believe my mom is saying anything at this point to make herself feel better. It might all boil down to jealousy.”

Eason also got into an altercation after court, getting into it with Nathan Griffith while Griffith spoke with paparazzi. Eason flipped Griffith the bird and taunted him for speaking to the cameras. Griffith said the altercation would prompt him to file a restraining order against Eason.

Evans’ kids – Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley – have all been the center of the drama because they’re younger and have been on TV since they were born, but Eason’s daughter Maryssa seems to have been left out of the headlines. Evans clarified that she and her husband are trying to get her back as well.

“The reports about custody are absurd,” Evans said. “I don’t understand why everyone thinks Maryssa is excluded out of this situation when every child is involved. We are fighting for all the children to come home. Maryssa’s grandmother and mother have cut David off completely. He’s being nice as possible and trying to check up on her and they refuse to answer the phone.”

The former Teen Mom 2 star also said that her once-a-week supervised visits are extremely emotional.

“It’s really hard holding my emotions together when your child doesn’t want to let you go, but if you don’t hold it together and break down it will make the child more concerned and upset,” she explained.

The road ahead looks pretty long for Evans and Eason. The two have entered parenting classes and marriage counseling, but sources have said that there’s a very simple way for Evans to get her kids back: leave Eason. He is the main holdup due to his actions and his temper. Evans has maintained that she’ll be staying with her husband through all this, which could pose a long-term problem.

In the end, as long as the kids are safe, nothing else matters, but I wish that Evans would realize there are things that need to change before she’ll have her family reunited again.

Jenelle Evans “Sobs” In Court As She Loses Custody Of Kids

If you haven’t heard, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been in a battle with authorities and CPS after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed their family dog for nipping their young daughter, Ensley, on the cheek. It caused a whirlwind of controversy, including Evans being fired from MTV.

After Eason shot the dog, CPS stepped in to take away the kids while they investigated the situation. Evans’ son Jace, who primarily lives with his grandmother, was not allowed to return to the house. Her son Kaiser was put in the custody of his father, Nathan. Ensley, the daughter of Evans and Eason, was put in the care of Evans’ mom along with Jace. Eason’s daughter Maryssa, who primarily lived with the couple, was believed to still be in the home as Eason continued to homeschool her.

Evans and Eason maintained that they had done nothing wrong, and that their kids never should have been taken from them. However, a judge in the courts disagreed. Today, Evans and Eason temporarily lost custody of their kids.

“The judge told Jenelle that she failed to protect the children while they were in her care,” an insider said. “The judge heard testimony that David and Jenelle were constantly screaming and arguing, and the children were terrified. CPS described the state of the home as horrific. It was filthy, and there were holes in all of the walls.”

The news came as a shock to Evans, who previously went on record saying that she would be getting her kids back and cooperating with the courts. When the news broke that she wouldn’t be getting her kids back that day, she lost it.

“Jenelle was sobbing in court,” the source said. “Jenelle believed that her lawyer was going to be able to get her children back and she seemed stunned when this happened. Jenelle is standing by David. Despite what happened, she has no plans to leave him.”

It was also revealed that Maryssa was put in the care of her maternal grandmother, and her supervised visits with Eason were emotionally traumatic.

“It was supervised with the Sheriff and social services was in the room and Maryssa ran out hysterically crying into her grandmother’s arms,” the source said.

Evans’ manager Johnny Donovan told Us Weekly: “At this time we are cooperating with the judge and legal team from court. We have no comment at this time and we appreciate the concerns regarding our client and her children. We will continue to cooperate with the court and their decisions.”

It’s important to note that Evans didn’t lose any legal rights to her kids. The situation is temporary, and the couple will appear in court again next week to try and regain custody of their kids. If the current caregivers want to take on permanent custody of the kids, they’ll have to petition the courts to do so.

It’s sad to see how far Evans and Eason have fallen, but perhaps this will serve as a wake-up call to Evans that her relationship with Eason is costing her the chance to be a mom.

Farrah Abraham Posts Tribute To Daughter’s Late Father

Farrah Abraham sky-rocketed to fame when she appeared on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant. She had an attitude, yes, and she definitely could have treated her parents better, but there’s no denying that the high-school cheerleader was met with tragedy during an already emotional time in her life.

Farrah’s boyfriend, Derek Underwood, died in a car accident just one month before Farrah gave birth to their daughter, Sophia. Farrah has always spoken highly of Derek, and makes sure to tell Sophia all about the man she calls “Daddy Derek.” Every year, they visit his grave on the anniversary of his death, and always post photos of him on his birthday.

This year, both Farrah and Sophia wrote sweet messages to Derek on what would have been his 29th birthday, including pictures of him and Farrah when they were younger.

To one very special person I celebrate and remember like no other-Happy Birthday Derek I love you, May 8th you would be 29 today, birthdays used to be so simple.

You gave me that once in a lifetime love of my life everyone so deserves, you gave me so many 1st’s, from virginity, proms, trips, my first ring, you showed me unconditional love, you showed me what relationships are, from prom, graduation, to our only child…all the events that had happened the entire sequence was one filled with the thrill, love & loss.

Now I share a birthday breakfast in your memory & all our best photos and your childhood photos with our daughter. I see all of your messages to me, & your written letters. Thank you for being the best loving man I know, and one of the strongest. All the memories we had. Our groups of friends & haters can’t deny our legendary times, from school, parties, summer nights & in-between.

On the 10th anniversary of Derek’s death, Farrah said she’s not sure the pain she feels from his death will ever go away.

“As far as I can see, grief will never truly end,” she said. “It may become softer over time, more gentle, and some days will feel sharp. But grief will last as long as love does — forever. It’s simply the way the absence of your loved one manifests in your heart. A deep longing, accompanied by the deepest love. Some days, the heavy fog may return, and the next day, it may recede, once again. It’s all an ebb and flow, a constant dance of sorrow and joy, pain and sweet love.”

I may not like Farrah or what she represents, but I can absolutely respect her for working hard to keep Sophia’s late father present in their lives.

Jenelle Evans Fired From “Teen Mom 2”

Things just keep getting worse and worse for Jenelle Evans and her family. This past week, Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, shot and killed their family dog, Nugget. The French bulldog had allegedly nipped at Jenelle and David’s young daughter Ensley, prompting David to slam the dog against the back deck and bring her to the woods to shoot her.

At first, the story was just speculation, but then David confirmed the reports on his Instagram page.

“I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face. Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s—t at all,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge whether or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”

Jenelle was extremely upset, obviously, that her dog had been killed, and she told Us that she was considering divorce.

“At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids,” she said, noting that the couple were not on speaking terms. “[Divorce is] in thoughts, but nothing is finalized. … I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends. David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my 2-year-old, Ensley. He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs. He just took her and shot her in the woods … about two acres away from the house.”

There were questions about whether or not Jenelle would still appear on Teen Mom 2. David had previously been fired from the show after his homophobic comments, and the show had been trying to film around him when shooting Jenelle, which proved to be difficult. Now, however, they won’t have to worry about that at all…as MTV has announced they are no longer including her in the show.

“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of ‘Teen Mom 2’ with him since,”  spokesperson said. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

It’s an interesting move, as Jenelle really didn’t have anything to do with the death of her dog, at least not that we know of. However, it’s possible that they’re firing her due to what she hasn’t done. According to the Columbus Country Sheriff’s Department, there wouldn’t be any investigation into animal cruelty charges against David unless Jenelle pressed charges. They refused to work off of “sensationalized media reports or social media posts.”

Authorities were sent to David and Jenelle’s home to conduct a welfare check, but because of a pit bull on the porch and a load of “No Trespassing” signs, they felt it was unsafe to go on to the property. After all, David has bragged about his arsenal of weapons, and has stated multiple times that he is not afraid to “protect” his property from intruders.

If MTV found out that Jenelle wasn’t going to press charges, it’s possible they used this as a reason to cut ties with the mom of three. The network already lost a bunch of advertisers after the news of Nugget’s death broke, including TWIX, Chipotle, Dove Chocolate and animal treats company Greenies. All of the companies said they didn’t want to be associated with the series, as they have a zero-tolerance policy towards animal cruelty.

Kailyn Lowry, also a star of Teen Mom 2, spoke out about David’s actions on her own social media account. Kailyn and Jenelle have had very public feuds in the past, but this situation seems to have allowed calmer heads to prevail.

“I have refrained from commenting on the disturbing situation involving David Eason and Jenelle Evans while I wrapped my head around the murder of Nugget,” Kailyn wrote. “To say I am disgusted and appalled over David’s actions doesn’t begin to touch on my true feelings. Being the owner of dogs myself, I am heartbroken and sickened by what happened to Nugget. I hope that Jenelle and her children are safe and take the necessary steps to get the help that is clearly needed.”

I think Jenelle is in a bad situation and feels like she can’t escape, but I also think she needs to seriously consider how David and his antics will affect her family and their well-being in the future.

Do you think MTV made the right call?
