Reality TV can be pretty entertaining, and it's certainly launched quite a few careers. But when it doesn't go well, it can make for some incredibly difficult situations for all involved. The stars of MTV's Teen Mom seem to attract or create more drama than other reality TV stars and veterans, which is unfortunate considering there are always children involved when it comes to these former teen parents. But even among the drama-plagued cast of the show, one member stands out time and time again.
Former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been in and out of trouble and in and out of the news since her time on the show. In fact, a lot of her story line on the show revolved around her getting into bad situations or making really questionable decisions. She's had a particularly rough few months lately, and it's culminated in feuding GoFundMe campaigns and an ongoing battle with her husband's ex over the welfare of their son. Let's break this down.
A few months ago, Jenelle Evans' husband David Eason allegedly shot and killed the family dog in front of Jenelle and their daughter Ensley. The police were called, and the incident resulted in Jenelle temporarily losing custody of her children, and Davis losing custody of the son he shares with ex Olivia Leedham, Kaden.
In July, it was revealed that Jenelle fabricated the entire story for publicity, and David faced no charges stemming from the fake story. Jenelle regained custody of her kids, and their weird and dramatic life seemed to move forward.
But now, the drama is getting kicked up again. David's ex Olivia has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for legal costs associated with her ongoing custody battle with David over their son, Kaden.
In the campaign, Olivia says she's concerned about Kaden's mental and physical health while he's with David and Jenelle, and says Kaden doesn't want to see or even speak to his father. Not to be outdone, David and Jenelle started their own GoFundMe to raise money for their own legal troubles, alleging that Olivia routinely violates the custody agreement by not allowing Kaden to see David, makes false allegations against him, and bounces from one relationship to another.
The couple also accuses Olivia of being abusive toward David and using drugs. Olivia's campaign is still active, and has raised $6400, surpassing the goal of $5200. David and Jenelle's campaign has been closed, having raised just $135.
It seems like another sad chapter in the seemingly never-ending sad book of Jenelle's life. It's just heartbreaking to think of the kids involved in this mess.
