The married couple previously temporarily lost custody of their children after Eason reportedly shot Evans’ dog. Barbara Evans had custody of their daughter, Ensley and continued to have custody of Evans’ son, Jace. Evans’ ex, Nathan Griffith had custody of their son, Kaiser. Eason’s ex, Whitney Johnson had custody of their daughter, Maryssa.

Evans and Eason reportedly went through counseling, drug testing, and parenting classes during this time. They were later awarded custody of their children except for Evans’ son, Jace.

Today [was] the final day we were in court from 9am-6pm,” Evans told Champion Daily on July 3. “She didn’t find any evidence against us of neglect or abuse of any sort.”

It seemed like the couple was looking to move forward. Evans also talked about wanting custody of Jace in the future. However, now there is news that the couple has split up.

The former reality star took to Instagram to give an update on her relationship. She posted a message saying she left her husband.

“The kids and I have moved away from David,” part of her statement reads. “Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know thats [sic] what is best for me, and for my kids.”

It then ended with, “Today I’ve filed papers to start that process. I appreciate the support from everybody who has asked how I am. Me and the kids are doing great. We need some time to be together. But you’ll hear from us again soon.”

Eason reportedly ‘went back to his old self’ after regaining custody

The mother is reportedly focused on keeping her distance from Eason. That reportedly means making sure he can’t reach her.

Jenelle has changed her number — and David doesn’t have it,” a source told Us Weekly. The mysterious insider claimed the breakup was “a long time coming” given he reportedly shot her dog in April.

This is when divorcing was “in [her] thoughts, but nothing’s finalized.” This last turning point had to do with them temporarily losing custody of their children then getting them back.

“David was on his best behavior in court, when he had to prove himself to regain custody of the kids,” a source said. “But once it was over, he was right back to his old self.”

Eason has claimed that he filed a missing person’s report because he has no way of contacting their daughter, Ensley. Evans has filed for a restraining order against him.

She claimed in documents that his “threats” escalated through texts, according to E! News. Evans also claimed there were 11 alleged incidents of him being physically and verbally abusive over the past two years.
