Jenelle Evans has reportedly lost custody of her three children temporarily. A judge ruled that 'Teen Mom 2' star and David Eason will not regain custody of her kids after he allegedly shot their dog. Evans has another 9-year-old child named Jace with ex Andrew Lewis, 2-year-old Ensley Jolie Eason with current husband Eason along with 4-year-old Kaiser Griffith, who she shares with ex - Nathan Griffith. Eason also has another daughter, Maryssa who is with her mom Whitney Johnson.
Reports said that multiple people testified against the couple in court, including Nathan. TMZ reported that the judge ruled after hearing the testimonies that there were problems with the couple and that the children were at risk because of it. Barbara Evans confirmed to E! News that she has custody of Jace and Ensley. "Of course I would like for Jenelle to get them all back eventually, but certain things have to happen first," she said.
In a statement, Evans' rep said, "At this time we are cooperating with the judge and legal team from court. We have no comment at this time and appreciate the concerns regarding our client and her children. We will continue to cooperate with the court and their decisions."
Both, along with the children's current caregivers, will return to court next Tuesday to "see what the next steps are as this is a temporary custody decision," a source explained. For the time being, the source shares that the pair will be allowed "one hour once a week of supervised visits.
MEA World Wide had previously reported that the reality star took to her social media to express her feelings earlier this month. "SO sick of this drama," the 27-year-old wrote in a Facebook post which she later shared to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, May 14 saying, "Everyone wants a piece of my life… like why tho?" She further continued. "How would anyone ever believe any of my siblings and then report some BS?! We all know damn well I don’t talk to my sister, have her blocked, and she’s the one to be looking at … not me."
After reports surfaced of Evans' husband Eason beating and shooting the family dog, Nugget, her children were earlier picked up by Child Protective Services (CPS). Evans’ 4-year-old son, Kaiser, was picked up from school on May 10 by CPS. The child was staying with his father at the time, Nathan Griffith and Nathan's mother, Doris. Nathan has been battling for full custody of his son alleging that Evans had done drugs during her pregnancy.
