Shootings, 911 Calls & Homophobia: Jenelle's Ex David's Dirtiest Deeds Exposed Amid Divorce
Jenelle Evans' marriage to David Eason has been a train wreck for years — and now, the Teen Mom 2 star is finally filing for divorce, she announced on October 31.
"The kids and I have moved away from David," she told Instagram followers.
Fans are not shocked by her bold move, as the controversial reality TV husband has horrified followers with his out of control, loose cannon ways for years.
No one dreamed what would transpire when Jenelle and David first got romantically involved in September 2015 after she split from fiancé Nathan Griffith.
It was all love and kisses in January 2017 when Jenelle gave birth to their daughter Ensley into a blended family. She and David both have two other children from previous relationships.
After the baby, their relationship got stronger. David proposed to Jenelle in February 2017, they bought a North Carolina home together that March, and married in September.
But in February 2018, David stunned TM2 fans with hateful homophobic and transphobic tweets, and he got fired from the reality TV show.
Things only went downhill from there, as audio exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com revealed that Jenelle had called 911 on David, claiming he allegedly abused her.
Although Jenelle later called the incident a misunderstanding, her husband was allegedly involved in more dramatic issues.
In January 2019, a real estate agent filed charges against David for supposedly threatening her with a firearm because she drove near his home; the case was dismissed.
David was charged with tampering with vehicle and injury to personal property after he posted a video on YouTube towing a man's car.
More seriously, Jenelle's ex-beau Nathan accused David of allegedly abusing Kaiser, Nathan's son with the TM2 star.
But after news that David had shot to death Jenelle's beloved dog Nugget, it seemed Jenelle had had enough.
Scroll through RadarOnline.com's gallery for more on David's dirtiest deeds before what will likely be a bitter breakup.
In one of David's most disgusting acts ever, he admitted he killed Jenelle's dog! The reality TV husband said he shot the pooch to death to protect his family after the dog bit their daughter. But in a video he posted on social media, the dog could be seen harmlessly nipping 2-year-old Ensley. Someone called 911. The Columbus County Sheriff's Office declined to arrest David due to "no evidence." Devastated Jenelle fled their home with the kids.
Call For Help
In October 2018, RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed that Jenelle had called 911 on David, claiming he'd abused her. The audio of the 911 call disclosed that Jenelle had been hysterically crying. "My name is Jenelle Eason," she told Columbus County Emergency Services. "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." However, Jenelle later said the whole incident was a misunderstanding between her and David. No charges were filed.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, David was dumped from TM2 after he allegedly made homophobic and anti-trans comments. He reportedly referred to gay and transgender people as "abominations."
Not Backing Down
David's alleged homophobic and transphobic statements caused a fan firestorm. At the time, when a Twitter user asked David if he was going to teach his children "to hate gay and transgender people," he allegedly responded, "No, I'm going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way. If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas." More than a year later, David admitted to killing Jenelle's dog!
Always provocative David outraged TM2 fans by "fat-shaming" Jenelle's co-star Kailyn Lowry. After Kailyn posted a vacation photo of herself and her sons, David blasted how she chose to have plastic surgeries and criticized her post-surgery body. " … ummm Dr. Miami… liposuction, fat injections, implants, the list goes on… so if you can change your body, why do you stay the same even after extensive surgery," David asked on Instagram. He added "why put yourself through such painful surgery? It's less painful to eat healthy…."
In February 2018, David's custody battle over his son, Kaden, exploded when his baby mama, Olivia Leedham, filed documents begging a judge to keep their young son away from him, accusing him of alleged domestic violence. David "endangered the life of the child by pushing Plaintiff when she Olivia was eight months pregnant and by leaving her in the middle of the road at night when she was seven months pregnant," court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com revealed.
Drama exploded at the Teen Mom 2 April 6, 2019 reunion show as even though Jenelle's fired husband David was banned from the get together, he bombarded her with phone calls. "Jenelle was very stressed and having anxiety because David was blowing her phone up," a source told RadarOnline.com.
On a TM2 episode that aired early in 2019, viewers saw how Jenelle wanted to take her son Jace on a vacation to Kentucky. But when she asked her husband, he refused to let her go without him and she cancelled the trip.
Jenelle's baby daddy Nathan has claimed that David abused Kaiser, the son Nathan had with the teen mom. Nathan called 911, claiming David was responsible for the bruising he allegedly found on the four-year-old's body. David denied it.
After Nathan accused David of abuse (that he denied), David fought back by alleging that Nathan had raped a 10-year-old when he was 16. Nathan denied David's claim.
In the wake of David's alleged assault of Jenelle in October 2018, he posted an Instagram photo of himself in which he was wrapped in a Confederate flag! Southerner David wrote as a caption, "Where I'm from is who I am and my family fought and died for this land. Red white and blue comes in more than one pattern. Don't argue just get off my page if you dont agree! Thanks @rednecknation #RHEC."
What A Pig
The dog death wasn't the first time David has faced charges of animal cruelty. Jenelle's controversial spouse was seen violently dragging pigs on their land in a video clip from April 2019.
Rough and ready David has long raised eyebrows with his kids. He faced flack after posting photos of stepson Kaiser playing with a toy gun at the age of 3 with the caption "Deer hunter."
On video, David made a drug confession. "I took a f**king Adderall," he said of the drug used to treat ADHD. "I shouldn't have took that s**t."
Jenelle posted a video of David operating a chainsaw and four-wheeler while drinking what appeared to be beer.
In January 2019, a real estate agent filed charges against David for threatening her with a firearm because she drove near his home. She claimed she was scouting property for her real estate business and he flipped out. However, as The Ashley reported, following Jenelle's testimony and other court proceedings, the judge found David not guilty and the case was dismissed.
David was charged with tampering with a vehicle and injury to personal property after he posted a video on YouTube towing a man's car. According to The Ashley, on June 3, 2019, David will be in court to face these charges.
Followers faced more transphobia from David in 2019, when he commented on Facebook that he would "slap the s**t out of" his kids if they are transgender.
David posted a series of shocking videos with guns and ammunition, threatening to "blow s**t into pieces," after cops were called to "The Land," where he's lived with Jenelle.
