Ex-Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and husband David Eason continue to fight to regain custody of their children, attending parenting classes and couples therapy, as well as court hearings. But now, a clearer picture of their tumultuous life together is emerging as reports say police responded to 25 different 911 calls made in regards to the couple within the last year.
Jenelle and David lost custody of all of their children after David violently shot and killed the family’s dog, Nugget, in April. Currently, Jenelle and David’s daughter, Ensley, and her son, Jace, are both staying with her mom, Barbara. Jenelle’s son Kaiser is staying with his father, Jenelle’s ex-husband Nathan Griffith.
It now looks like losing custody of the kids was the inevitable end to this story. A 911 call log obtained by RadarOnline shows that cops were called to Jenelle and David’s home 25 times in the last year.
The calls reveal a history of alleged abuse within the home, including calls from Nathan Griffith claiming his son Kaiser, 4, had “bruising” and “marks all over him” and that David had hit Kaiser with a stick. At the time, Nathan refused to give Kaiser back to Jenelle because of the injuries, prompting her to call 911.
In another call, Jenelle alleged David had assaulted her, saying “he pinned me down on the ground in the yard. I think I heard my collarbone crack. I can’t move my arm.” She called again a few months later, telling the 911 operator that she was hiding in her attic while David was outside the house trying to break down the front door.
Jenelle Evans Faces More Backlash
Jenelle was fired by MTV after a decade with the network after her children were taken away. She continues to face backlash as this story develops.
She recently shared a video on YouTube (above) showing her kids and David on the farm getting baby chicks and chickens. The video showed her children and David, as well as her deceased dog, Nugget. Fans were outraged that she chose to show a video of her children with David and animals, most notably the dog that he had shot and killed. “I cannot believe you have the nerve to show Nugget and the kids like if he wasn’t dead or like the kids haven’t been taken away,” one fan wrote. Another said, “This video isn’t going to help get your kids back…”
