Teen Mom's David Eason takes his children out for a swim, worried fans say 'it looks like a sewage plant'
Replying to fans, Eason said the sediment on the bottom is dead foliage which makes it appear black and called it 'the cleanest river on the east coast'
The troubled ex-husband of fired 'Teen Mom' star Jenelle Evans did something to further raise a furor among his followers and left them thinking that he has the safety of his children compromised. He recently uploaded a video of his two children enjoying a day out at a water body on his Instagram page. The muddy and murky appearance of the water is what had the followers of his page worried.
"Perfect day to cool off in the old swimming hole!" wrote Eason in the caption of his video, which saw his two children enjoying taking a dip in the murky water. However, his followers were left stunned by it and couldn't believe Eason let his children in water that looked visibly unsafe. "It looks like a sewage plant," wrote a follower while another wrote, "Did someone just die in that water? Why is it so red?" One more said, "Oh wow, the water looks really awful. Be careful... My thoughts and prayers and love are with you and your family dear."
It seems like Eason took notice of all those comments worrying about the safety of his children and he took the time out to address them. "Nope, no industry or runoff on this river whatsoever," Eason wrote in response to a follower. In another comment, he explained what caused the water to appear the way it did. "The sediment on the bottom is dead foliage which makes it appear black," he wrote. In another comment, he called the water body "the cleanest river on the east coast".
Eason has allegedly exposed his children to unsafe conditions in the past, which explains why followers who saw the video might be worried. In June this year, David engaged in a physical altercation with his ex-wife Evans' friends. Evans and her two male friends had turned up to Eason's house to collect the former's things after the couple spent a week arguing with each other. Eason was arrested from his house for "assaulting" Evans' friend James Spivey with a "deadly weapon" after which he told The Sun that he was worried and "Someone is going to get hurt on that property.”
A source also told the publication that Maryssa, 12, from Eason's previous marriage, 5-year old Kaiser from Evans marriage to Nathan Griffith as well as Eason and Evan's 3-year-old daughter Ensley were witness to this entire ordeal. "The kids witnessed the altercation, they were crying. They saw David hit James with the gun. When he hit him in the back, if that gun went off, his kids would’ve been in jeopardy. The kids would’ve been dead. CPS needs to be involved. The kids need to be protected," said the source.
In 2019, Evans had filed for a temporary restraining order against Eason where she alleged 11 counts of abuse against him. Her statement in the restraining order read, "Because of his recent threats, his history of violence, his erratic behavior and his large stockpile of weapons, I am scared for my life and my children’s well-being." While detailing one alleged incident of abuse, she wrote: "I took a video of David locking my car door with the car running and my son, Kaiser, inside the car. He did this because he was angry with me. I had to tell Kaiser to unlock the car. While Kaiser was trying to unlock it, David continuously locked it again with my spare key, scaring both me and Kaiser."
