The fired Teen Mom 2 star must return to a North Carolina courtroom on Tuesday, June 4 to try and work out “a solution on how to get her kids back,” an insider dished to Radar.
“Jenelle has no idea when she’ll get them back,” the source said about Kaiser, 4, and Ensley, 2, her daughter with bad news husband David Eason. Her son Jace, 9, continues to live with her mother Barbara Evans, and he is no longer permitted to go to her home for visits.
David’s daughter Maryssa, 11, was also taken away by the judge.
“The judge told Jenelle that she failed to protect the children while they were in her care,” an insider previously confirmed to Radar.
Jenelle took the stand in her defense during the five-day hearing, but the judge was not swayed by her testimony.
“The judge told her that she was not going to be getting her children back today, and set a future court date of June 4,” an insider told Radar about Jenelle, 27.
“The judge heard testimony that David and Jenelle were constantly screaming and arguing, and the children were terrified."

“Jenelle can have supervised visits with her children,” a source told Radar about Maryssa, Kaiser and Ensley, the three children who were removed from her home by CPS after David killed the family dog.
The fired MTV star is on a strict visitation schedule. “She can see each child once a week for an hour a day,” the source explained.
Jenelle’s visits with her children are restricted to the Department of Social Services. “She can meet them in the office, she cannot go see them in their homes,” the insider told Radar.
“She’s devastated,” another source told Radar about childless Jenelle’s situation.
But Jenelle made a decision to stay with David despite the judge taking away all of their children.
“She's standing by her husband,” the source explained.
“Jenelle is cooperating with the judge’s orders,” a separate insider claimed to Radar.
“Jenelle wants to focus on what’s most important and that’s her kids,” the insider insisted.
Disturbing testimony sealed Jenelle and David’s fate with the court after CPS began an investigation into them following David’s brutal killing of the family dog Nugget, who he admitted he shot and killed after it allegedly “snapped” at Ensley.
“The judge heard testimony that David and Jenelle were constantly screaming and arguing,” an insider explained to Radar.
“CPS described the state of the home as horrific. It was filthy and there were holes in all of the walls,” the source told Radar.
“Jenelle believed that her lawyer was going to be able to get her children back and she seemed stunned when this happened,” the source told Radar about the judge’s decision to take custody of the children away from Jenelle and David.
