Things are going from bad to worse for reality television star Jenelle Evans. Evans, who up until recently starred on the hit MTV show Teen Mom 2, was fired after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed the family's dog for biting the couple's two-year-old daughter Ensley on the cheek.
The fallout of Eason's shooting of the French bulldog named Nugget was swift. Fans of the reality star called for Evans to leave her husband, whom many have accused of being abusive in the past. MTV, who had already cut ties with Eason last year after he made homophobic and anti-LGBTQ remarks on social media confirmed they would no longer be filming with Evans after the dog shooting incident. Now it seems that Eason's actions are still affecting Evans and her family with reports that her children have been removed from her home by Child Protective Services.
According to TMZ, CPS has ruled that Evans is not allowed to see her 9-year-old son Jace while they investigate the dog incident. Jace lives with Jenelle's mother, Barbara Evans, who has primary custody and they don't want the reality star to have contact with the boy until their investigation is complete.
They also confirm that Kaiser, Jenelle's 4-year-old son with Nathan Griffith was removed from her care and placed with Griffith and his mother. InTouch is reporting that Evans' daughter Ensley and Eason's 11-year-old daughter Maryssa have also been removed from the home.
“During this difficult time, I’m focused on getting Kaiser back and cooperating with my legal team on the next steps to getting my children back,” the former Teen Mom 2 star told PEOPLE in a statement after news that her son had been removed from her custody was publicized. Evans has spoken openly about her relationship with Eason after he allegedly killed her dog, writing that she was thinking about divorce but "nothing was finalized."
Since then Evans said that not only is she working to get her children back home with her, but she's committed to working on her relationship as long as Eason is too. "My relationship with David now is still in a healing process, of course,” Evans explains to Us Weekly. “We are going to start going to marriage counseling because he feels as if we both need it. I completely agree. Not considering divorce unless he refuses counseling with me.”
