Jenelle Evans fired from 'Teen Mom 2' after husband David Eason kills her dog
Eason was fired from MTV after he made homophobic comments in 2009 and now Jenelle Evans, his wife, is fired too
Jenelle Evans is done with MTV's 'Teen Mom 2,' because she has been fired. Following recent reports that her husband David Eason allegedly shot and killed her French bulldog, MTV is reportedly parting ways with the 27-year-old reality TV star.
"MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since," an MTV spokesperson told Us Weekly on Tuesday afternoon. "Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season."
Jenelle's mom, Barbara Evans, told E! News that "Jenelle was let go" and added that she's unsure where she stands on the show. "I don't know what they'll do with me," she said. "She hasn't heard from the network yet."
Evans has been part of the franchise since 2011, where she made her television debut and was reportedly making six figures per season. Now her days are numbered but Jenelle continues to be with Eason. Eason was fired from the show as a result of homophobic comments he made back then and MTV has gone to great lengths to avoid dealing with him.
TMZ reported that MTV executives told Jenelle's manager that Eason killing the dog was the final straw and they feared he was out of control and wanted to distance themselves from what they saw as a looming disaster.
The decision to cut her off comes on the heels of Eason shooting and killing her French Bulldog as punishment for nipping at their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley, even though the incident was far from a vicious attack.
The Columbus County Sheriff's Office and Animal Control have initiated a joint investigation into allegations of animal cruelty against Eason, who allegedly slammed the poor pup against their home's back deck before taking him into the woods and shooting him to death. Jenelle has publicly confirmed Eason killed her dog.
