Could A Fellow “Teen Mom” Star Be Taking One Of Jenelle’s Kids?

Everything is kind of up in the air right now for Jenelle Evans and her kids, after all three of them were removed from her home after her husband, David Eason, viciously murdered the family dog, Nugget. According to Eason, the dog nipped at 2-year-old daughter Ensley’s face, and that was enough for him.

Since the whole situation occurred, local authorities and CPS have been involved, concluding that it was unsafe for Evans’ kids to remain in her care. Jace, 9, Kaiser, 4, and Ensley, 2, were all taken from the house. Jace and Ensley are with Evans’ mom Barbara, who already has primary custody of Jace. Kaiser is currently living with is father Nathan Griffith, but Evans said it was never communicated to her that this would be happening.

“Kaiser was taken from his daycare by his grandmother with no notice or call to me,” the reality star said to Us Weekly. “CPS told Doris to take Kaiser without my consent and still have no legal paperwork signed by the judge stating my kids are taken from me. Nathan and I have talked briefly regarding this situation. [He] and I are to appear in court later this month.”

The entire situation is complicated, as Evans has been fired from Teen Mom 2, but it doesn’t appear that any charges have actually been laid, plus she wasn’t the one who killed the dog. In fact, she was completely distraught that it happened. Since she got fired by MTV, the big question has been how the show will go on. Evans undoubtedly brought a lot of drama with her, and fellow co-star Kailyn Lowry says that it ended up being more of a distraction.

“I think that people did watch the show for Jenelle and I don’t think that that can be denied,” Lowry, told TMZ when they caught up with her. “I think the drama is hurting the show and it’s unfortunate for those who have worked really hard to kind of rebuild our reputation.”

“There’s a difference between daily drama and drama that involves criminal activity,” Lindsie Chrisley, Lowry’s friend, chimed in.

“And hurting living things,” Lowry added.

An interesting bit from the chat is when Lowry brings up the notion that she may be the one to take Ensley.

“People are messaging me and asking me if I’ll take Ensley, so I’m like, ‘Ohhh, I don’t know. I don’t want to get involved.’ I’m not considering it at this time, but I hope that the children are … happy and healthy overall.”

It’s weird to say that she’s “not considering it,” because that concept hasn’t really been brought up at all. Plus, there’s such a dramatic and tenuous history between Evans and Lowry. Lowry sent Evans a “peace offering” after she launched a haircare line, and Evans lit it on fire and posted the video on Instagram. I can’t imagine they ever made a deal to take each others’ children in case of an emergency. That being said, MTV may have suggested it to make for better television.

Lowry has only publicly commented on the situation one other time, which was after Evans was fired from the show.

“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,” Lowry wrote on Instagram. “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.”

Evans and Eason appeared in court this week to discuss the matter of custody of the kids, but there’s been no word as to what was specifically discussed or if any decisions were made.

What do you think of this whole situation?

CPS Takes Aways Jenelle Evans’ Kids

By now, you’ve probably heard that Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason, shot and killed their family dog after he nipped at the couple’s daughter Ensley. The story has made headlines, and even resulted in Evans getting fired from Teen Mom 2, where she’s been a mainstay for years.

MTV

“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,” a spokesperson for MTV 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.”

The next big question was how this situation would affect Evans and Eason’s relationship. Evans made it clear that she was “considering divorce,” but wouldn’t say for sure what was going to happen.

“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 shortly after this all happened. “[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.”

Both local authorities and CPS wanted to intervene with the family for the safety of the kids, but because of Eason’s public declaration that he’ll harm trespassers on his property, plus his love of guns, they have been hesitant to approach the house.

Now, however, the situation has reached new heights. Evans’ kids, Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley, have all been, or are in the process of being, removed from the home. Nine-year-old Jace, who lives with his grandmother who has primary custody, is not allowed back to Evans’ home until the investigation is complete. TMZ is also reporting that authorities are close to removing Ensley from the home, as well. She will be given to Barbara as well.

As for 4-year-old Kaiser, Evans confirmed that he was taken from his daycare by his father Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris. He’ll stay in Griffith’s care until the investigation is complete.

“Kaiser was taken from his daycare by his grandmother with no notice or call to me,” the reality star said to Us Weekly. “CPS told Doris to take Kaiser without my consent and still have no legal paperwork signed by the judge stating my kids are taken from me. Nathan and I have talked briefly regarding this situation. [He] and I are to appear in court later this month.”

“Our current custody order is still in place,” Evans said of her arrangement with Griffith. “Nathan is to have supervised visits and only supervised by Doris. Surprisingly, me and Nathan have been getting along, so I’m willing to maybe let his visits be unsupervised. Me and Nathan have been in contact during all of this. He doesn’t want Kaiser taken from me. My legal team has been on this since it [occurred]. I’ve been fighting to get my son back, as they went behind my back and removed him without my consent.”

Evans also revealed that divorce is currently off the table, and that marriage counseling is the way to proceed.

“My relationship with David now is still in a healing process, of course,” Evans explained. “We are going to start going to marriage counseling because he feels as if we both need it. I completely agree. Not considering divorce unless he refuses counseling with me.”

Eason’s 11-year-old daughter, Maryssa, still lives with the couple, and it doesn’t appear as though that’s changed soon.

“David has full custody over her and still homeschools her,” Evans said. “Maryssa has been with us since everything has been going down. She is frustrated with the media she sees online about her father because she knows the truth what goes on in our household. At this time, I want to focus on what’s best for myself and my family. My lawyer has been advising me on what to do and what has gone wrong in this whole situation.”

Christopher Adkins, a family lawyer in North Carolina, spoke to Hollywood Life about the situation, though he is not currently working on the case. He did say, however, that this situation could be more drawn out than anyone intended, especially when it comes to custody battles.

“In order to prove to CPS that the children will have a safe environment, they will have to show that there are no guns accessible, I don’t think this is an issue here but there are no drugs left out, they are completing some kind of anger management program, then that is when CPS feels comfortable to allow the children to return to their home,” Adkins said. “Additionally, if the fathers to Jenelle’s other kids made reports to CPS, it might be grounds to modify their current custody arrangement. So this could negatively affect her, and have her current custody order modified.”

Personally, I think something needs to be done so that Evans finally realizes how serious this situation is, and how dangerous Eason can be. His temper has proven to be problematic in the past, but now it’s putting the family at risk.

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?
