Fired Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans’ dog-killing husband was ordered to start paying his child support, according to court documents exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com.
David Eason, who admitted to killing Jenelle’s dog Nugget, an action which has resulted in Child Protective Services removing all of the children from the couple’s custody, appeared in court on May 3, where the judge ordered him to pay up the $4,100 he owed to the mother of his son, Olivia Leedham.
Radar reported that Jenelle actually paid the fee for David, just days after he senselessly killed her dog.
Judge Melinda Crouch was succinct in her criticism of David in the documents obtained by Radar, writing that his excuse for not having a job and not paying the child support he legally owed because he was busy homeschooling his daughter was not valid.
“The defendant’s choice in homeschooling a child rather than seeking gainful employment is in bad faith and shows a naïve indifference to his compliance with his court ordered obligation to pay child support,” the documents obtained by Radar stated.
Scroll through Radar’s gallery to see the shocking list of weapons David owns, his attempts to weasel out of paying child support and to find out how much MTV paid him for two years on the show before he was fired.
The documents obtained by Radar noted that David and Jenelle testified in court on April 23, sharing details about their personal finances, including the fact that David earned a whopping $60,000 - $120,000 per year from MTV in 2017 and 2018, before he was fired from Teen Mom 2 for his homophobic rants.
Jenelle’s own MTV Teen Mom 2 salary was revealed during her testimony, the judge noted in the documents obtained by Radar.
“Jenelle Eason testified she earned over $400,000 in 2018 as a participant on reality television program,” the judge noted in the court papers. Radar was the first to report that MTV fired Jenelle after David killed her dog.
“Defendant’s lack of compliance with the 2016 order was willful and he has the present ability to comply with the order or take reasonable measures to comply with said order as set forth below,” the judge wrote about David refusing to pay Olivia the monthly $850 he owed her.
According to the documents, David stopped paying Olivia in November 2018, shortly after Jenelle called 911 to report that “my husband just assaulted me.” He made a one-time payment of $1,000 in March 2019.
Jenelle’s husband claimed in court that he was not working because he was responsible for teaching his daughter Maryssa, who was homeschooled. “Defendant testified that he stays at home with his daughter and homeschools her, despite other children living with him in the same home that are attending traditional school outside the home,” the documents stated.
David offered another excuse for not working. “Defendant testified that he suffers from vitiligo, a skin condition, and that having vitiligo prevents him from working outside or outdoors,” the judge wrote in the court documents obtained by Radar.
Jenelle’s husband’s excuses were slammed by the judge. “The court does not find the defendants testimony credible that his vitiligo prevents him from any gainful or meaningful employment that would allow him to earn sums of money and has the ability to earn sums of money through employment,” the court documents stated.
The judge offered her opinion about why David refused to get a job. “That the defendant has chosen not to look for work and his lack of employment is motivated by the desire not to comply with a court ordered obligations.”
Jenelle was very generous with her husband, the judge noted in her documents. She “testified that she gifted Defendant a boat with an approximate value of $6,000, showing that he had assets,” the documents obtained by Radar stated.
David’s arsenal of weapons was detailed in the court documents. “Defendant owns many weapons including handguns, shotguns, and semi-automatic weapons, which were displayed in a video defendant made after a visit to his residence from the Secret Service,” the judge wrote. She also noted: “Defendant admitted he has approximately ‘2,000 rounds of ammunition.’”
David was ordered to pay the outstanding $4,100 per the judge’s orders and a source confirmed to Radar that Jenelle paid the outstanding amount so that he could avoid jail in the wake of his killing her dog.
