Dr. Jenn Mann of ‘Couples Therapy’ Explains Why She Hopes Jenelle Evans Is Motivated to Leave David Eason
Dr. Jenn Mann is used to helping celebrities with their marriages on Couples Therapy. What is her recommendation for Jenelle Evans and David Eason? She hopes Evans is motivated to leave her husband for this reason.
There were reportedly more than 25 emergency calls to Jenelle Evans and David Eason’s home this year
The married couple reportedly hasn’t been doing well. TMZ reports there were 25 phone calls to 911 concerning the couple over the last 12 months. The report estimates about a third of the 911 calls were from other people concerned about them.
Evans and Eason reportedly called in October and December 2018 due to domestic issues. She once claimed her husband attacked her and pinned her to the ground. Another time she claimed he was smashing things in his house with a gun.
A video was also released showing Eason standing in a kitchen saying to someone behind the camera, “You could die right now.” He throws a few more insults then gives the camera the middle finger.
They stayed together, but they continued to get noticed by the law. Eventually they lost custody of their children and are currently trying to get it back.
Evans previously said she’s looking into marriage counseling with Eason
The couple was probably having trouble due to Eason allegedly shooting her dog. Evans was then fired from Teen Mom 2. After those reports, Evans claimed they were looking into getting marriage counseling.
“Me and David are looking into marriage counseling,” Evans said according to E! News. “He has totally been there since this happened with MTV. David’s been really supportive and told me just stay positive, everything will be fine.”
There were rumors that the couple was in talks of being cast on Marriage Boot Camp. However, We TV later tweeted the statement, “There are no plans to cast Jenelle Evans and David Eason on #MarriageBootCamp.”
Dr. Jenn Mann says she hopes Evans is “motivated” after losing so many things
Dr. Jenn Mann is a therapist who is focused on sex and relationships. She has also been keeping updated on the couple’s relationship and weighed in on it.
“I think that pain is a great motivator for people, so losing her children hopefully will motivate her,” he told Hollywood Life. “If that doesn’t, I don’t know what will. But I think that everyone around her needs to be giving her a constant reality check. This is not the time to mince words or be codependent and enable her in an irrational thinking. In my opinion, as a therapist, this is an incredibly self-destructive relationship for Jenelle.”
She added, “I would say that, while Jenelle is ultimately responsible for her choices, the mindset that she is in right now is clearly one of someone who has been victimized, and also with someone with terrible self-esteem.”
If Evans is thinking about leaving her husband then she’s doing a good job at hiding it. The couple recently spent Father’s Day together without their children. She posted a picture of them on a sailboat. The former reality star said “it’s too quiet here” in a caption.
