‘Teen Mom’: Will Jenelle Evans Divorce Her Husband, David Eason?
If you’re not a frequent watcher of MTV’s Teen Mom, chances are, you had never heard of Jenelle Evans until just recently. But after her husband shot and killed Evans’ young French bulldog the 27-year-old mother of three has been hurled into the headlines.
The reality star has stood by her man after questionable events in the past, but will this latest incident prompt Evans to file for divorce?
How long have Jenelle Evans and David Eason been married?
Evans married David Eason on September 23, 2017, nine months after Evans gave birth to the couple’s first baby, Ensley Jolie. This was the second marriage for Evans who was previously married to Courtland Rogers and engaged to Nathan Griffith, whom she shares a son with.
Evans also has a son with Andrew Lewis who is not an active part of the child’s life.
Eason’s recent behavior has people worried
On April 30th, police received a call from Nathan Griffith. Griffith claimed that his ex-fiancé’s husband had just shot and killed his wife’s dog. He requested a welfare check for his son Kaiser, whom he shares with Evans.
The police visited the home for a welfare check but did not investigate the dog’s death (it is now being reported that the police are actively following up on this case).
Eason admitted to killing the dog, sharing on Instagram that the dog posed a danger to his child. He showed a video of the dog nipping at the couple’s two-year-old daughter, as well as a picture of the bite.
The former reality star who was fired by MTV after making homophobic remarks said:
“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— at all. 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 wether or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
This isn’t the first time Eason has been in the news for dangerous behavior. In October 2018, Evans called 911 claiming that her husband had attacked her. She told the 911 dispatcher that Evans had thrown her to the ground. She said that she thought she heard her collar bone pop and she couldn’t feel her arms.
The incident resulted in a trip to the hospital for Evans, but no charges were filed. The Teen Mom star explained the whole thing as a drunk and dramatic misunderstanding.
Will the couple get divorced?
Evans’ co-stars are speaking up about the latest incident. Amber Portwood wrote on Twitter, “Omg I can’t even read anymore details about this horrible incident that happened to Janelles poor dog! ugh heartbroken seriously…I hope she makes the right decision.”
Randy Houska added, “You aren’t ‘protecting your family’ when you shoot a 10 pound dog that your daughter was tormenting.”
For now, it looks like Evans is staying with her husband. The reality star recently posted a picture of herself collecting eggs and making coffee at the home she shares with Evans.
But she hasn’t ruled divorce out. The reality star is heartbroken over the loss of her dog and is weighing her options. Evans told Us Weekly, “At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids. [Divorce is] in thoughts, but nothing is finalized.”
