The married couple got into hot water when it was reported that Eason allegedly shot and killed Evans’ dog, Nugget. Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2. Eventually, they lost custody of their children.

Evans’ son, Kaiser that she shares with Nathan Griffith is now in his custody. Eason’s daughter, Maryssa he has with Whitney Johnson is now in her custody. The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Ensley is in Evans’ mother, Barbara’s custody.

They reportedly get one supervised visit a week. The parents reportedly have to complete drug testing, parenting classes, and counseling ordered by court.

Barbara Evans gave a short response to the news that her daughter is temporarily losing custody. “Of course I would like for Jenelle to get them all back eventually, but certain things have to happen first,” she told E! News.

Things have gotten worse between the mother and daughter. The two were later seen getting into an argument after court on June 4.

The father called 911 and claimed Barbara locked in Ensley in a bedroom and couldn’t get the door open, according to TMZ. His mother-in-law reportedly wanted to take a shower and he claimed she couldn’t get the door open.

Eason asked the dispatch operator to file a report with child services. The operator responded by telling him to do that himself. Now Evans gave a statement explaining the situation.

The former reality star explained the situation to Us Weekly. She claims Ensley was locked in the bedroom by her mother.

“David and I were on FaceTime with Jace when we heard my mom say to Ensley, ‘Come here, I have to take a shower.’ Then she took Ensley in the other room, and we immediately heard her screaming and crying,” she said.

“We asked Jace what was going on, and he said my mom locked Ensley in the bedroom so she can take a shower,” the mother continued. “We told Jace to get the door open, and when he couldn’t get the door open, we called 911 for help because all we could hear was Ensley screaming.”

The couple recently made headlines for how many emergency calls they’ve been making. There were reportedly 25 requests to dispatchers made from either Evans or Eason in the last 12 months. Her brother, Colin also reportedly made eight calls to police dispatchers since February 2019 to report suspicious activity in Barbara’s home.

Evans and Eason have since returned to court after the call on July 3. Their appearance is for a hearing regarding their custody battle with Child Protective Services and Eason recently claimed he had “new evidence” for their case, according to Radar Online.
