Jenelle Evans fired from 'Teen Mom 2' after husband allegedly kills family dog
David Eason, the husband of 'Teen Mom 2' star Jenelle Evans, allegedly shot and killed the family bulldog, Nugget. The Columbus County Sheriff’s Department told RadarOnline that an unidentified male called 911 on Tuesday, April 30, and accused Eason of committing the crime.
"A call was was made today, and it was relayed that the woman’s husband had killed her dog,” the Sheriff’s Department stated at the time. "The Sheriff is out there right now investigating and there will be an incident report filed later."
Following the incident, a source told E! News that Eason allegedly killed the dog because "it snapped at" their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley. "The horrific incident thankfully did not happen in front of the kids," the source added. "Jenelle has been distraught all day over it."
On Instagram, Evans shared a photo of her and the beloved pup, writing, "Nugget... I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me.... Everyday I wake up you’re not here... When I come home you’re not here, When I go to bed... you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught."
Evans and Eason got married in September 2017, but following this appalling incident, she's "very much considering divorcing," according to E!. "I have not gone back to my home yet because he is refusing to leave," she told the news outlet. "I won't see him and don't want to talk to him. Thankfully the kids did not see him shoot the dog. They are still with me. I am very much considering pressing charges against him for this."
In the wake of these reports, MTV announced they are parting ways from the couple. "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," a network spokesperson told Us Weekly on Tuesday. "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."
In a since-deleted Instagram post, Eason shared a video of Ensley playing with Nugget, and broke his silence over the incident. "I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face... whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that s--t at all," he reportedly wrote, according to E!, PEOPLE and other news outlets.
Eason continued: "I'm all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME."
