She's out! MTV is done with Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans, and apparently the newly fired star is freaking out about it.
This is all happening in the wake of the latest drama between Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason. Eason shot and killed the family's French bulldog Nugget after Nugget nipped at the couple's 2-year-old daughter Ensley. Jenelle was heartbroken by Eason's actions. Amid the controversy, MTV announced that it cut ties with Jenelle Evans, emphasizing that the network already fired Eason last year after his homophobic tweets.
Apparently Jenelle Evans was surprised by MTV firing her after she'd been on Teen Mom 2 since Season 1 in 2011. Here's what an insider told Us Weekly:
The same source told the site that Jenelle Evans' mother Barbara Evans was also upset. Barbara was with Jenelle's 9-year-old son Jace on a cruise when the Nugget shooting happened.
Jenelle Evans hasn't spoken out herself, but she did retweet a link to Us Weekly's story claiming she was "really upset" about the firing.
Teen Mom 2 co-star Kailyn Lowry also posted links to stories on Jenelle Evans being fired:
That link led to RadarOnline's report claiming Jenelle Evans was "hysterically crying" after being fired, with a source saying everyone except for Jenelle knew the move was coming. The source said she's "broke," with her only income coming from Teen Mom 2, so she's "going to try and get on other reality shows." Her husband David Eason is reportedly trying to console her by saying they'll find another way to make money.
Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer also reacted to Jenelle's firing:
After the Nugget incident, Jenelle Evans told Us Weekly she was considering divorcing David Eason, but nothing was finalized. She wanted to focus on what was best for her and her kids:
David Eason had defended his decision to shoot Nugget in a now deleted Instagram post, adding this caption:
