‘Teen Mom 2′ Star Jenelle Evans’ Kids Removed From Home After Husband Shoots And Kills Pet Dog


Jenelle Evans from the show Teen Mom 2, is continuing to face fallout over her husband’s actions. David Eason, Jenelle’s husband shot and killed their family dog after it supposedly bit their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley, in the face.


Jenelle confirmed the incident by posting a tribute to Instagram the following day. Her two other children, 9-year-old Jace and 4-year-old Kaiser, were at the home during the incident. Nathan Griffith, Kaiser’s father, called 911, requesting a wellness check for Kaiser as a result of the incident. Police made the determination that the child was safe.

The incident didn’t stop there. Teen Mom 2 has already fired David following a series of homophobic tweets last year, and now, MTV has made the decision to also let Jenelle go.

According to TMZ, North Carolina Columbus County Child Protective Services has gotten involved, removing Jace and Kaiser from the home pending an investigation.

In a statement obtained by People, MTV has released their current stance with Jenelle:

“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. 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.”

An investigation into David shooting the dog has begun, thanks to the North Carolina Columbus County Child Protective Services. TMZ has reported that CPS removed both Jace and Kaiser in order to conduct the investigation.

Primary custody of 9-year-old Jace doesn’t belong to Jenelle but instead her mother, Barbara. Jenelle has visitation rights. CPS has discontinued Jace visiting Jenelle’s home.

After being removed from Jenelle’s home, Kaiser was placed with Nathan and Nathan’s mother. Jenelle and David still have custody of Ensley, as well as David’s daughter, Maryssa.

Jenelle opened up to Us Weekly regarding the situation and explained, “Kaiser was taken away Friday without my consent, before Mother’s Day, and I have been in touch with my lawyer pertaining this matter. Kaiser was taken from his daycare by his grandmother with no notice or call to me.”

According to Jenelle, she still hasn’t received any paperwork from CPS. “CPS told Doris [Nathan’s mother] to take Kaiser without my consent and still have no legal paperwork signed by the judge stating my kids are taken from me,” she told Us Weekly.

Jenelle added that there’s no legal basis for Jace to have been removed. Instead, she believes that was her mother’s doing, saying, “My mom is keeping Jace from me, nobody else. I only had Ensley with me for Mother’s Day this year. And my mom is taking it out on me for being let go from MTV.”

Jenelle has also revealed she is dedicated to working on her marriage. Despite rumors that she was thinking of divorce, she explained the couple are considering their options. “My relationship with David now is still in a healing process, of course,” she noted. “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.”

Many of Jenelle’s fans have stopped supporting her, believing that violence against animals is the last straw. Unfortunately, it’s not the first time that David has exhibited very concerning behavior.

Other fans fear for both Jenelle’s safety and the safety of the remaining kids in the house, fearing that David could turn violent on his wife and kids eventually.
