Evans, 26, made a tearful call where she told the operator that David Eason “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.”

Evans’ husband was fired after his homophobic rants earlier in the year and was forbidden from filming with her, but the insider said that didn’t change the network’s decision to keep her on.

“Jenelle’s drama is the only drama on Teen Mom 2 that people tune in for,” the source told Radar. “It is the reason why she’s on after she pulled a gun on camera. And they fired David and not Jenelle too. She is ratings gold.”

The source told Radar that Farrah Abraham’s departure from Teen Mom OG had the network execs concerned that viewers would abandon the show, securing Evans’ job even more.
