Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans is homeschooling her 11-year-old stepdaughter because her homophobic husband David Eason became enraged over a cross-dressing staff member, a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
The Non-Public Education Department of North Carolina Administration previously confirmed to Radar that Evans filed a notice of intent to operate a home school on March 4, 2018, listing one student. The name of the school is West Croft Leadership Academy.
Now, Radar can exclusively reveal the shocking reason Eason’s daughter Maryssa was pulled out of her North Carolina private school.
“Someone at her school was apparently dressing, or dresses, like a girl,” the insider told Radar. “David said something to the school staff and they said they couldn’t do anything about it.”
Eason opted for home schooling after being unable to enroll his daughter in another private school.
“The other school ended up telling David she couldn’t attend because their address is not in the school zone,” the insider said. “She would have to go to the public school for their address, which David feels she's too good for.”
The Leland, North Carolina school confirmed Maryssa is being homeschooled. They would not comment on the reason.
Evans confirmed the homeschooling on her Twitter account.
“While you’re over here podcasting away, tweeting pure bulls**t about me, or posting #FakeNews… I’ll be over here homeschooling my stepdaughter and minding my business,” she wrote.
As Radar previously reported, Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 because of his homophobic comments.
“Why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot that’s supposed to be normal,” he tweeted, as another anti-LGBTQ comment read, “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.”
Evans has defended her husband. On part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion, she claimed, “It’s the way he was raised. His kids didn’t hear him say that. He doesn’t run around the house saying I hate gay people.”
But Eason continues to make controversial comments.
Earlier this week, he posted a meme of a bride and groom on Instagram that read, “It’s natural, it’s worked for thousands of years and you can make babies.”
He captioned the meme, “For the people who get offended when you call then what they identify themselves as… I’m also proud to be a white man, a southerner and a redneck! #pride.”
Are you surprised he took Maryssa out of school? Tell us in the comments.
