Jenelle Evans: Does She Deserve Sympathy as David Eason’s Victim, or Condemnation For Endangering Her Children?

As you’ve likely heard by now, Jenelle Evans filed for divorce from David Eason last month.

Not only that, Evans has been granted a restraining order against Eason after accusing him of issuing threats and abusing her children.

We probably don’t need to tell you that Jenelle has never been terribly popular among Teen Mom 2 viewers, and that was especially true in the months before she was fired from the show.

She spent several years defending David and enabling his abuse of children and animals.

And, of course, Jenelle has faced countless accusations of neglect and abuse and bigotry — not the kind of behavior that tends to earn the affection of reality TV audiences.

But now, we know that Evans was a victim herself, a fact that no doubt influenced her actions, at least during her time with David.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that there’s a debate raging on social media over whether or not Jenelle is deserving of sympathy.

We’ll present both arguments, and you can decide for yourself if she’s an victim, a perpetrator, or some untidy combination of both:

1. How Do You Solve a Problem Like Jenelle?

Jenelle Evans is one of the most widely-despised reality stars in the history of the genre. But will the fact that she recently escaped an abusive relationship earn her any sympathy from her harshest critics?

2. Escape From the Land

In October, Evans made a daring escape from the home she once shared with David Eason — the property the former couple famously dubbed “The Land.”

3. October Surprise

On Halloween, Jenelle revealed on Instagram that she had left David and begun the process of divorcing him.

4. End of a (Very Brief) Era

“With the time I took away from Teen Mom, I’ve started looking at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting now,” Jenelle wrote.

5. Better Late Than Never

“The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today, I have filed papers to start that process,” she continued.

6. For the Kids

Again bringing the focus back to her children, Jenelle wrote, “Like anyone else, I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy.”

David Eason: Jenelle Evans Kidnapped My Daughter!

Earlier today, we discussed the imminent custody battle between Jenelle Evans and David Eason.

We weren’t exactly going out on a limb in our prediction that it would soon turn ugly.

After all, these two are both known for their short fuses, and it doesn’t take much to set either of them off.

But while we knew the fireworks were coming, we didn’t think the situation would become quite so explosive quite so soon.

In the past 24 hours, both Jenelle and David have contacted (or threatened to contact) the police.

Now, that the law is involved, the facts are coming out quickly — and David is looking worse than ever.

Here’s everything about the situation at this point:

1. The Formerly Happy Couple

The situation between David Eason and Jenelle Evans intensified rapidly today. Jenelle announced their separation last week, and now, David has issued a statement of his own.

The announcement wasn’t a total shock, as it came on the heels of several days in which David hinted at marital troubles in his Facebook posts.

Jenelle Evans to David Eason: I’ll Give You The Land If I Can Have Our Daughter!

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Jenelle Evans has filed for divorce from David Eason.

Now, this is Jenelle we’re talking about, so there’s a good chance she’s lying, and this is all just a last-ditch effort to save her career.

But for the time being at least, the Easons are living in separate states (Jenelle in Tennessee; David in North Carolina).

And if we the version of events offered by sources close to Jenelle, she’d be perfectly happy if it stayed that way. 

In fact, it seems she reportedly has no problem with allowing David to remain on the property they obnoxiously dubbed “The Land” — but only if he grants of custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Ensley.

Here’s everything we know about this increasingly bizarre situation:

 

1. The Easons

You probably won’t be seeing any pics like this one for a while. Jenelle and David have called it quits, and sources close to the couple say they did not part on good terms.

2. The Announcement

Evans shared the news with fans last week in a surprisingly straightforward Instagram post.

3. Uncharacteristically Quiet

“I’ve mostly kept off social media the last few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” Evans began.

4. Has Any Of It Been Pretty?

“I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old,” Evans continued. “And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But it’s been my life.”

5. Think of the Children

“Like anyone else, I want what’s best for my kids, and I want to be happy,” Jenelle wrote.

6. Playing the Kid Card

Yes, Jenelle is once again claiming that her kids are the heart of every decision she makes. That’s obviously not true most of the time, but it might be in this case.

Jenelle Evans Fled With the Kids, Cut David Eason Off Financially

Divorce is always a sad thing, particularly when there are children involved.

But it’s hard not to take a little pleasure in seeing someone as awful as David Eason get his comeuppance.

As you’ve probably heard by now, Jenelle Evans has filed for divorce from David.

There are rumors that it’s all just a scam designed to help Evans get her job back, but if that’s the case, the former couple is really committed to the bit.

And based on the latest intel regarding this messy separation, Jenelle is also committed to making David suffer.

Take a look:

1. The Ex Files

Jenelle and david sittin on a porch
Jenelle and David were always the least-popular couple in the Teen Mom universe. But their reputation really took a nosedive in May of this year.

2. Human Trash

David with nugget
That’s when David beat, shot and killed Jenelle’s puppy, Nugget, while his children were at home.

3. Jenelle’s Hell

Jenelle evans just chills
Jenelle helped David hide his crime from police — a move that didn’t sit well with fans, or with MTV execs, who swiftly fired Evans from Teen Mom 2.

4. The Downward Spiral

Jenelle and david cuddles
That set off a domino effect, and in time, Evans was left with virtually nothing. The dog slaying prompted a CPS investigation that caused Jenelle and David to lose custody of their children.

5. Financial Ruin

But what really tore the Easons apart was the economic ruin brought about the loss of Jenelle’s job. Sources say the couple is massively in debt, and their efforts ag bringing in income have thus far proven fruitless.

6. The Latest

Jenelle evans cant believe you
We now know that Jenelle left David under cover of night. And her first order of business as a free woman was trying to rebuild her career.

David Eason Drags Jenelle Evans, Really is Such an A-Hole

Welp. That didn’t take long.

On October 31, Jenelle Evans filed for divorce from David Eason, a development most celebrity gossip fans have been waiting to see take place for several months now.

Evans provided a lengthy statement at the time of this decision.

And now Eason has finally done the same — and, as you would expect, it was a very dumb thing that he said.

Like we said: it didn’t take him long.

Scroll down to see what we mean and to get caught up on this entire ugly situation…

1. Can We Have a Brief History Lesson?

Go ahead and hate us
Sure: Jenelle and David got married on September 23, 2017 and have a two-year old daughter together named Ensley.

2. But It’s a Busy Household

Jenelle and david cuddles
David also has an 11-year old daughter named Maryssa from a previous relationship and Evans has two sons from previous relationships, Kaiser and Jace.

3. Why Has the Marriage Fallen Apart?

Aside from Eason being a violent bigot and homophobe? We actually can’t say why Evans arrived at this decision at last, after all this ugly time as David’s wife.

4. But Arrive at It, She Did

But arrive at it she did
“I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” Jenelle shared with fans on social media. “I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But it’s been my life. Like anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy…”

5. Okay. Go On, Jenelle…

Jenelle evans just chills
“With time away from Teen Mom I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now,” she added.

6. Meaning What, Exactly? Well…

Meaning what exactly well
“The kids and I have moved away David,” Jenelle continued. “Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process.”

Jenelle Evans vs. David Eason: The Custody Battle Over Ensley Is Soon to Turn Ugly!

As you’ve probably heard by now, Jenelle Evans and David Eason are getting divorced.

The couple began hinting at marital strife last weekend, and on Thursday, Jenelle dropped the hammer:

She revealed that she and her children are no longer living with David, and that she has begun the divorce process by filing the necessary papers.

The big question now is — what will become of Ensley?

Yes, there were several children living on The Land, but only one was the offspring of both Jenelle and David.

The couple just regained custody of the 2-year-old earlier this year, and both have been arrest records a mile long, which means they may be in for a very complicated — and very ugly — custody battle.

Take a look:

 

1. The Not-So-Happy Family

Yes, after just two short years of domestic misery, Jenelle Evans and David Eason have officially called it quits on their marriage.

2. Mysterious Split

Usually, Jenelle and David are more than happy to air their dirty laundry on social media, but this time around, they’ve been surprisingly quiet.

3. Actually …

More accurately, Jenelle has been quiet. David has been throwing himself an epic pity party on Facebook.

4. He’s Not Happy

Je split 11
We’ve seen a few of the fits of rage we’re so accustomed to from David, but he hasn’t provided much in the way of details. Fortunately, these two are terrible at keeping secrets.

5. An Actual Psychopath

David with nugget
As you probably know, Jenelle and David’s current woes began back in May, when he shot and killed the family dog in a fit of rage.

6. House of Horrors

For most people, the worst part of that situation would be the fact that David BEAT, SHOT AND KILLED A PUPPY while his kids were present, thus prompting a CPS investigation that led to the children being removed from the home.

Jenelle Evans Divorces David Eason: What’s Really Going On Here?

As you’ve probably heard by now, Jenelle Evans has filed for divorce from David Eason.

Evans broke the news yesterday, and since she’s always got an angle, the public promptly set about the business of figuring out her latest scheme.

Even if she’s telling the truth, some fans figured, you can be sure she’s not getting divorced for the right reasons.

It’s not to protect her kids, they speculated, but to protect her bank account.

Frankly, there’s a lot to support that theory.
