Jenelle and David showed a united front as they arrived to court on Friday, May 24.
Cool & Collected
The couple appeared calm as they entered the courthouse for the fourth hearing in the case. Sources told Radar this is expected to be the final hearing.
Jenelle, 27, donned a white blouse and black pants as she walked to court. She topped off the look with a white pearl necklace.
David, who often appears disheveled, dressed appropriate for court, as he wore a button down shirt and suit jacket.
As Radar reported, David admitted to shooting and killing the family dog Nugget for harmlessly nipping at their 2-year-old daughter Ensley. The shooting resulted in Jenelle’s firing from Teen Mom 2.
Things then went from bad to worse. On Friday, May 10, child protective services ordered Nathan Griffith’s mom Doris to pick up Kaiser, 4, from day care.
Jenelle’s mom Barbara, who has full custody of Jace, 9, was ordered to keep him from Jenelle during her visits.
Jenelle and David’s daughter, Ensley, and his daughter Maryssa, 11, from a previous marriage were removed from their custody. Ensley is currently in Barbara’s care, while Maryssa is with her grandmother.
During their second day in court on May 17, David went off. “David flipped out,” an insider said. “He was sitting in the courtroom and he pulled Jenelle over and was saying very mean things about everything that was going on… He was just so mad.”
Jenelle and David were able to see the children for an hour. David’s daughter Maryssa cried after meeting with her dad. “It was supervised with the Sheriff and social services was in the room and Maryssa ran out hysterical crying into her grandmother’s arms,” the source told Radar. “David was yelling: ‘What did you do to my child? Why won’t she talk to me?’”
Better For Kaiser?
The insider said Kaiser “is so happy with Nathan.” “It would be a crying shame if the kids go back to them,” the insider told Radar.
Jenelle and David tried to get the judge thrown off the case. “Jenelle’s attorney said that the judge had a prejudice against them because he was biased toward CPS,” the source told Radar. The request was shut down.
