It all went down!
Jenelle Evans has dated some seriously controversial people in her past. From boyfriends like Kieffer who enabled her drug use to those like Courtland whom Jenelle accused of physically abusing her, not all of her exes have exactly been winners. But her husband, David Eason, may be the most controversial person that she’s been involved with to date.
Although Jenelle defends David as the best man she’s ever been with, co-stars like her mother Barbara, her ex Nathan, Dr. Drew, and even many fans have accused David of being overly controlling and explosive with his wife. Did David prove exactly that during the reunion special of Teen Mom 2?
The reunion took a turn for the worse when Dr. Drew brought up child abuse accusations against the Easons. His words frustrated the couple so much that they stormed off the set, stopped filming, and refused to return for the rest of the episode!
In the short time that Jenelle and David have been together, David has supplied some seriously controversial moments to the Teen Mom archives. David’s treatment of Jenelle and Kaiser stirred up so much drama this season that the mother-of-three even threatened to quit the show.
Although the two seem to be on the show to stay, things got tense during the reunion special when Dr. Drew apparently pushed a little too far. It started when he brought up all of the rumors that David and Jenelle are abusive towards Kaiser. In fact, Nathan Griffith’s mother Doris even threatened to file for custody of her grandson after accusing David and Jenelle of using drugs during her pregnancy with Ensley.
Evans tried to shut down the rumors as Eason watched on. She even accused Doris of being abusive! “I had concerns about a hand bruise on Kaiser’s butt from Nathan,” she said. “I took a picture and sent it to Doris. She said, ‘That must have been you or David.’”
In tears, the star went on about her love for her husband. “He’s protective, he’s passionate about his family,” she said. “I can never see him turning his back on me. He treats me the best way possible. It makes me upset to see everyone bashing him. He doesn’t make me feel insecure in any way possible.”
She didn’t deny that she saw David’s aggression. “When he gets aggressive, I say, ‘You got to calm down,’” she said. “They don’t show me saying that.”
But while David was looking on in the background, he openly shared his aggressive side. “We’re leaving after this,” he said to himself while cameras rolled. “[Dr. Drew] is a drama queen. And he’s probably a f–got. Push every button, pull every string, make her cry, make everybody upset. Call me an aggressive person who hurts everybody. I’m not answering any of his questions. I’m going to tell him how I feel about him!”
David got so frustrated that he walked over to his wife to inform her that he was leaving. As Jenelle decided to leave with him, she told producers, “If I don’t leave with him he’s going to be at the hotel by himself and sitting there saying ‘My wife didn’t even support me. I’m his wife.’” Although one of the producers stood in front of the Easons’ car and begged them not to leave, the couple rolled off the set.
Jenelle is notorious for tweeting her opinions and then deleting them, saying she does so to get the drama off of her timeline. She has since deleted this rant, but she wasn’t able to delete all screen captures of the Twitter chain from the internet!
Once again, the star accused MTV’s editing of making her look bad. “Yeah, just watched the reunion,” she wrote. “Saw everyone’s interviews with Dr. Drew about me. Funny when you cut people out of your life they get mad as sh-t, all of them. And if you are wondering, Kaiser is doing just fine everyone.”
She even accused MTV of trying to make Nathan look good despite his pending abuse charges against his ex Jessica. “I can’t believe that MTV chooses now to build up Nathan, a known and recorded abuser, who Barb even said choked Jenelle when she was pregnant, and then trash David by implying he abuses her,” she retweeted.
She added, “There’s a reason they act the way they do. There’s a lot not known to the public. I feel so bad and so embarrassed for my son by the way his extended family just talks so freely about him on national TV.”
Jenelle also said that David’s frustration started with Dr. Drew’s behavior that wasn’t aired. “Dr. Drew went into saying that David’s daughter Maryssa needs therapy because of her mother. There’s a lot that WAS NOT aired. David got mad that Dr. Drew spoke about his family the way he did. God forbid David is protective…”
She signed off her rant by saying, “I’ll just let everyone hate me, that’s fine. Signing off.”
Once Jenelle and David left, Nathan and his mother were free to sound off with their opinions about the couple and their parenting. “He grabbed my son by the arm and picked him up when he said, ‘feed me,’” Nathan recalled.
“I’ve seen children go through it, I know the red flags and I see red flags,” Doris recalled. “I filed and tried to get temporary custody of him. I believe there is drug abuse going on. I picked up Kaiser at daycare and the first thing he says to me is, ‘Nana, David punched me.’ I want someone to protect my grandchild.”
Although the second part of the reunion hasn’t aired, we know that a lot more drama went on behind the scenes. Nathan’s girlfriend Jessica reportedly went at it with Jenelle, and David was even accused of pulling a knife on set!
Jenelle and David are doing a pretty good job defending their title as the most combative Teen Mom couple even on social media —
and with David recently telling a fan that he would f–k their mother, it doesn’t seem that this behavior is changing anytime soon!
