Jenelle Evans has hit headlines again, this time for the return of her children. Kaiser, 4, and Ensley, 2, were taken into protective custody after Kaiser spoke to a school counselor about things at home, according to E! News. The Teen Mom 2 star has caused a lot of controversy over the last few months, largely down to the parenting tactics of her husband, David Eason.
CPS intervened shortly after it was revealed that Eason took the family dog into the woods and killed it, for allegedly nipping Ensley. While the children have remained in care, the couple were allowed one-hour weekly supervised visits. Jenelle's mom, Barbra, took care of Ensley while Kaiser went to stay with his father, Nathan Griffith. Barbara and Jenelle's tumultuous relationship has been well-documented on the MTV series, but that abruptly ended in May.
After reports of the animal slaying, MTV had no choice but to let Evans go. The network had already stopped filming with Eason in February of last year after homophobic tweets landed him in hot water. Despite the public outcry against him, Eason maintains that he shot and killed the dog, Nugget, to protect his family. He remains unapologetic.
Jenelle's 9-year-old son Jace remains in the custody of his grandma, who has made her opinion very clear. Talking to E! News, Barbra said that the judge "did a great injustice" to the children by returning them to the couple. According to her, Jace was incredibly upset with the decision and has chosen to remain with her. There is currently no court order asking Jace to return to Evans and Eason.
Last month, the 27-year-old reality star defended her beau after Investigation Discovery published a video in which he was named one of the top 5 "Frightening Fathers". In a scathing message that has since been deleted, Jenelle blasted the channel for featuring Eason. In her words, he was "protecting his child from being bitten by a dog in the face." She went on to compare her husband with her abusive exes, detailing crimes committed against her by other partners - none of which, she enthused, were by Eason's hand.
