Why Fans Are Shocked By Jenelle Evans’ Current Relationship Status

Jenelle Evans and David Eason have been through a lot this past year. The couple landed themselves in hot water recently after Eason shot their dog. This caused MTV to fire Evans from their hit show Teen Mom 2.

Fans have long wondered just how long Evans was going to stay with David for. The latter has long been unpopular with Teen Mom 2 viewers, who believe that he is a bad influence on Evans. However, in a recent Instagram post, she decided to share with fans what has been going on in their relationship and where they currently stand.

A lot of people thought Eason killing their family dog might have been the last straw for Evans, especially since this event also made her lose her lucrative job. During a Q&A with fans on Evans’ Instagram Story, someone decided to inquire about this, asking: “Was it a hard decision to stay with David after the dog incident?”

Evans responded to share how she felt. “Honestly, yes, we were on bad terms for almost a week. Didn’t talk much,” she said. “He knows how upset it made me. Now that we are getting over this incident our relationship has got a lot stronger. David has completed anger management as well.”

Jenelle Evans later said that she lied about David Eason killing the dog

Just when things could not become more chaotic, some fans now believe that the reason why Evans is staying with her husband is that he never killed any dog in the first place.

Evans called the police April 29, though according to the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, when authorities investigated the couple’s home on May 1, there was no evidence of any animal being shot there. Another investigation was done a couple of weeks later that also did not turn up anything suspicious.

The sheriff’s office subsequently released a statement that claimed Evans gave the police inconsistent stories on multiple occasions. Moreover, the statement also revealed: “Jenelle stated that the reason she filed the animal cruelty report was for the publicity and because she did not know where her dog was.”

However, there are fans who do not buy the story that Evans was originally looking for publicity. They think that Eason really did kill the dog and Evans is now changing her words in order to prevent him from being charged with animal cruelty.

Jenelle Evans and David Eason briefly lost custody of their children

Throughout the whole drama, Evans and Eason also managed to lose custody of the three children who were residing with them. After news of Eason allegedly killing their dog surfaced, a judge ordered for the children to be removed from Evans and Eason’s care since there was evidence that their home environment was not a safe one.

The judge also ordered the couple to undergo drug testing, get counseling, attend parenting classes and, in the case of Eason, submit to a psychological evaluation. In early July, a new judge dismissed the case, citing lack of evidence against the couple. Evans and Eason ended up winning their custody battle and their children could now come back to live with them.

However, not everyone was happy about this news. Evans’ mother, Barbara, who was taking care of their youngest child Ensley, did not hide her frustration. She told Radar: “It was an injustice to the children… Now they’re back with this crazed guy… He’s back in his mean s**t… I’m going to fight for these children.”

Another person who might fight against Evans and Eason is Nathan Griffith, Evans’ ex with whom she shares son Kaiser. Griffith has been trying to get full custody of their son for over a year and it doesn’t seem like he will stop anytime soon.
