Former Teen Mom stars David Eason and Jenelle Evans have frequently found themselves in the headlines for actions outside of the MTV reality series, and often it's for the wrong reasons. More recently, the couple were entangled in quite the controversy when Eason shot and killed the family's dog after it nipped at their child. Now, that incident, along with some other troubles are reportedly the reason the two just lost custody of their children, for now anyway.
After four days of court testimony, a judge has decided that Jenelle Evans and David Eason be temporarily stripped of custody of their three children, Kaiser, Ensley, and Jace. In order to get custody back both will be required to attend parenting classes, take weekly drug screenings, and attend counseling. TMZ reported the couple will get supervised visits with the children for one hour a week.
In the meantime, Kaiser will live with his father Nathan Griffith (who testified in court), and Ensley (2) and Jace (9) will stay with Jenelle Evans' mother Barbara. It's alleged that one of the things brought to light in court was that 4-year-old Kaiser was "terrified" of David Eason, and had been mistreated by him. Again, this is all alleged, but it's being said that this statement seemed to resonate with the judge who made the ruling.
Not long after the court decision was made, a video surfaced that showed David Eason swearing and making gestures at a camera during statements that appear to be directed at whoever is filming him. TMZ uploaded the video (which starts at :19), and it's been speculated that Jenelle Evans is the one recording the altercation and who the comments are directed towards.
Jenelle Evans was dropped by Teen Mom 2 in early May following the dog incident, which is only one of the most recent issues the reality star and her husband have been a part of. Evans was involved in a road rage incident in which she, with her child in the car, allegedly pulled a gun on another driver, and Eason was charged for illegally towing a car at the end of last year.
This is not the first time Child Protective Services has been involved in Jenelle Evans and David Eason's lives, as the organization intervened following the birth of Ensley, when Evans tested positive for THC. The family was subjected to home checks by the organization, but CPS found no reason to continue after that. That experience may be why one source alleged that Evans was shocked by the judge's ruling, and thought she'd be leaving court with her children.
While one won't find Jenelle Evans and David Eason on the program, it's worth mentioning that MTV is bringing back Teen Mom for Season 8 Monday, June 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
