‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans revealed she is considering divorce after her husband David Eason killed her dog, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned she is “too scared” to go through with the split.
The horrific animal murder took place after their Frenchie Nugget “snapped” at their 2-year-old Ensley. David furiously shot the dog on their property.
After the gruesome killing of Nugget, Jenelle has considered ending her two-year marriage.
“Jenelle is definitely considering divorcing David after he killed her dog,” a source close to the MTV star told Radar. “This could be the end for them because she is so upset about what happened and the cruelty of him killing her dog.”
Us Weekly was the first to report on the potential divorce.
Another source told Radar that at the end of the day, Jenelle is not leaving her husband.
“She’s not divorcing him,” the insider told Radar. “She is back with him. She doesn’t want people to know obviously, but she is back home with him.”
A third source told Radar that Jenelle was apprehensive about filing because she’s “scared” of her husband after the vicious slaying of her dog.
And the reasons were obvious as details from the rural property emerged.
Radar was the first to report that David killed their dog. The Columbus County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a 911 call was placed, and a male claimed that David had killed Jenelle’s dog.
Although the Public Information Officer told Radar authorities found "no evidence," the Sheriff's Office has now teamed up with Columbus County Animal Control.
"Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and Columbus County Animal Control initiated a joint investigation into allegations of animal cruelty," the press release to Radar read. "The investigation is ongoing. No further details will be released at this time to preserve the integrity of the investigation."
David confessed to killing the dog, sharing a video where his daughter leaned into the dog on the sofa and he defensively snapped back.
“Little dogs will do that with toddlers who mess with them. He didn’t bite her or hurt her. Just snapped,” an insider told Radar about the actions leading up to the dog’s death. “David took the dog outside and shot it. Point blank.”

“Jenelle has been afraid to file for divorce before now,” the insider told Radar and claimed that David’s poor treatment of her before he killed the dog was the reason.
“She isn’t in control,” the source said about Jenelle after David killed the dog.
“He’s violent, and he’s controlling and manipulative,” the insider added.
The source said David’s history of violence has held her back from making a move.
“He threatens her if she talks about leaving,” the source snitched to Radar about their dysfunctional marriage.
Jenelle’s husband was so cruel to her that she was afraid to leave, the source said.
“She wants to leave but so far she can’t. She doesn’t have the strength or the confidence. And she’s scared.”
“He threatens her with BS,” the source said. “Like he tries to get her to stay… and then when he doesn’t get his way he throws a fit and threatens her.”
Jenelle called 911 in October 2018 claiming that David assaulted her and threw her on the ground.
Jenelle posted a tribute to her beloved dog after the shooting. “Nugget... I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed... you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken#Distraught.”
On the hysterical phone call recording obtained by Radar, she told the 911 operator, “My name is Jenelle Eason. My husband he just assaulted me. He pinned me down on the ground in the yard. I think I heard my collarbone crack. I can’t move my arm.” She later called it the incident a “drunken misunderstanding.”
