In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, TMOG star Cheyenne Floyd is slamming David for his cruel act, while lending her support to Jenelle.
Scroll down to get Cheyenne’s response and the latest on the dog shooting scandal.
“As someone who grew up loving animals, I do not condone animal cruelty,” Cheyenne told Radar. “I am grateful that the child was unharmed from the dog and believe things should have happened differently.”
She then lent her support to Jenelle. “Continually praying for the safety and livelihood of Jenelle and her children,” she said. “I hope she reaches out and gets the support she needs.”
As Radar broke, authorities responded their North Carolina home after an unidentified male placed the call on Tuesday, April 30. A 911 call was released later of Jenelle’s ex Nathan Griffith asking authorities for a welfare check on his son Kaiser, 4.
Public Information Officer Michele Tatum told Radar that no arrests were made at the time.
As of Tuesday, May 7, Tatum told Radar the investigation is "ongoing.”
David admitted to shooting the family dog in an Instagram post. He captioned a video of the pooch harmlessly nipping Ensley, 2, “I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face. Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s**t at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge whether or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
Jenelle responded to the incident by posting a selfie with Nugget. “Nugget… I’m crying everyday,” she wrote. “I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught.”
Jenelle stayed at her friend Jamie’s home after the incident, even admitting she is considering divorce. But when the weekend came, she was back in their North Carolina home.
“Jenelle has been afraid to file for divorce before now,” a source previously told Radar. “She isn’t in control. He’s violent and he’s controlling and manipulative.”
A second source told Radar David lured Jenelle back with promises.
“He needs to get a job, which is what he promised her,” the source said. “They’re trying to work on the relationship. They are getting a marriage counselor. They need time to work on the marriage.”
Still Working On Things
Although the two are working on their marriage, they are “not back together.”
