I’ve been a fan of the entire Teen Mom franchise since the 16 and Pregnant days, and I’ve witnessed the fair share of drama, tears, laughter, and milestones. And while I’ve loved almost everyone on the show, it’s evident that I’ve never liked Jenelle from Teen Mom 2.
I’ve seen her abandon her son for parties, favor heroin, and unhealthy relationships over her son, have other children (and an abortion) before beginning to fight for custody of her 1st child, abuse and assault her mother, kidnap her child she doesn’t have guardianship over from her mother, and endure endless legal troubles.
After October 9ths episode of Teen Mom 2 aired the Twitter world exploded after the very alarming issues Jenelle Evans was experiencing. She even deleted her Twitter account hours before the show, knowing she would receive tons of backlash.
It all started when her fiancée (now husband) David Eason, 29, kicked out the MTV camera crew after having an argument with Evans, then acted as if nothing happened when the crew came back the next day. All it took was one look from David to Jenelle that warned her not to say anything (or a look of shock she told the producer), and you could see the worry on her face.
They have had plenty of fights as a couple, we’ve seen he has as hot as a temper as hers.
Plus have you ever noticed Jenelle always holding their shared daughter when he’s mad? Or that Jenelle has calmed down when it comes to their arguments instead of firing back at him like she used to?
Then we saw the couple trying to take their engagement photos while Jenelle’s son Kaiser, 3, screaming to be fed, visibly upset, and touching the camera. David rushed over and aggressively yanked on the toddler and forced him away. This is after they were swearing at the kid for being curious.
You can watch the disturbing video here:
After the show aired, even her costar’s were shocked and disgusted by the couples behaviors and lack of parenting towards their child. Kailyn and Chelsea voiced their disappointment and horror towards the situation. But the fans started going over other alarming things from the past season, among others, that are drawing concern.

Jenelle Evans really just wanted an excuse to say "My Husband". Enjoy that label while it lasts! pic.twitter.com/Ny64Gjj5T2

We’ve seen David (in particular) get verbally and slightly physically abusive towards Kaiser before, and it’s a wonder how child services haven’t gotten involved, even in the first episode of the season. He already doesn’t have the rights to see his son because of abuse charges. All children need to leave that home!
Then this brings me to Jace. The poor child is better with his grandmother, Barbara. Poor Jace has been tossed around because of her and her decisions. It’s pathetic that Jenelle really thinks Jace wants to be in her home. She’s chosen a lot of things before making efforts to gain him back and is now married to a man he fears. And what is she doing about it? Forcing the poor kid to go to therapy with the monster he’s fearful of, and struggling to see why her son doesn’t want to be there. He defends his grandmother to her all the time and all she does is bash her own mom.
And how can Jenelle be so upset with her mother? Jace living with Barbara has been the best decision for her son. She doesn’t deserve custody. And I believe the innocent child’s claims of neglect and abuse that occurs in that household. Kids don’t lie. Heck, Jenelle and David’s daughter Ensley, 9 months, was even born with weed in her system. That right there is alarming on its own.
She then went on to bash MTV and stick up for her new husband, also making the decision she may (finally) leave the series. It’s really interesting how she failed to mention anything about the incident involving abuse and neglect during the photography scene. But, whatever Jenelle can do to show it’s just about her and her man, right? She thinks she’s as innocent as can be.
She can blame MTV all she wants for “ruining” her life, but you know she loves the paycheck. And if producers are showing it all, then why didn’t they show when her baby tested positive for drugs at birth? I’m almost positive the reason she wants to quit the show is so that they can’t document anything that can be held against her in court. Because she will (and I hope) she loses both of her children. Because the events we’ve been witnessing are disgusting and I could only imagine what happens behind closed doors when she doesn’t have to pretend her family is perfect.
