How Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ Star, Jenelle Evans Is Reportedly Reacting to Temporarily Losing Custody of Her Kids

Jenelle Evans and her husband, David Eason have been fighting for custody of their children in court. The judge ruled that they will temporarily lose custody. Find out how Evans is reacting to the news and what the couple has to do according to the court.

David Eason and Jenelle Evans’ kids were removed from their home

Everything started when Eason reportedly admitted to killing Evans’ dog. He claimed the dog was endangering their daughter, Ensley.

He talked about it in a video on Instagram. “I dont [sic] give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face,” he said according to Us Weekly. “Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont [sic] put up with that sh*t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes [sic] mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me.”

Evans mourned the dog, Nugget through an Instagram post. She wrote in a caption, “Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back.”

After the incident, Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2. Eason started being investigated for animal cruelty. Their three kids were then removed from their home. The first one removed was Kaiser who Evans had with ex, Nathan Griffith.

“During this difficult time, I’m focused on getting Kaiser back and cooperating with my legal team on the next steps to getting my children back,” Evans’ rep said.

Their other children were also removed from their home. The couple then had to go to court to fight for custody.

A judge ruled that Eason and Evans won’t regain custody of their children

The judge ruled that Eason and Evans won’t regain custody of their children on May 28. Kaiser will be staying with his father, Jace and Ensley will be staying with Evans’ mother, Barbara Evans, and Eason’s daughter, Maryssa will be under the custody of her mother, Whitney Johnson.

They will also reportedly have limited face-to-face contact for the time being with one visit a week that will last an hour under supervision, according to TMZ.

A source claims the married couple will have to go through drug testing, parenting classes, counseling, and weekly drug testing. Kaiser was reportedly “extremely fearful” of returning to their house and claimed he was mistreated by Eason, which was brought up in court.

How is the mother reacting to the ruling? “Jenelle was stunned that the judge did not give her back the kids,” a source claimed according to E! News. “They are all for the time being remaining with their respective caregivers.”

Barbara Evans confirmed that she has custody of Jace and Ensley. “Of course I would like for Jenelle to get them all back eventually, but certain things have to happen first,” she said. The married couple will return to court next Tuesday.
