Jenelle Evans announced she is divorcing David Eason
The married couple both were fired from Teen Mom 2. They then made headlines for Eason reportedly shooting her dog. Eventually, they had to fight to get custody of their children back.
Evans announced on Oct. 31 that she has decided to file for divorce. She posted this statement on Instagram.
“I’ve mostly kept off social media in the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” read the statement. “I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And alot [sic] of it hasn’t been pretty. But its [sic] been my life.”
The message went on to say, “Like anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy. With time away from Teen Mom I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now.”
There was another photo that continued the statement. “The kids and I have moved away from David,” it 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 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.”
There is a rumor she left for the safety of her kids
A source claims to know the reasons Evans decided to move out and file for divorce. One of them is that she wants her family safe.
“She is looking out for her own welfare and the welfare of her children,” a source told E! News. “She has had a lot of relationships and she really wanted to make this one work and did everything she could, but David really just dragged her through the mud. Some people just cannot be helped.”
The mother is reportedly keeping her location private and isn’t open about the details of the divorce. “It’s for her and the kids’ safety,” said the insider.
The other reason is that she reportedly wants her career back
Since the reality star got with Eason, she got fired from the show. She has tried to continue to work, but it looks like this is another reason she is done with the relationship.
“She also knows she would not be able to go any further in her career with David in the picture,” the source told E! News. “She is now trying to recapture the old Jenelle, which is an improvement.”
“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since,” a spokesperson for MTV told Us Weekly. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”
Eason has yet to make a statement about the divorce. However, he did post messages on Facebook that made some people wonder if they broke up.
