Jenelle Evans’ relationship with David Eason is officially over, a longstanding rumor which Jenelle confirmed last week in a heartfelt Instagram post. After affirming that she had filed for divorce, Jenelle was met with support from fans who want her and her children to remain safe.
Unfortunately, what appeared to some to be the end of a long battle is in reality just the beginning. Jenelle and David have a long road of divorce proceedings ahead of them, not to mention any other personal and legal battles that may arise, and it seems like they’re already starting.
Although it’s only been a week since her initial announcement, things between David and Jenelle seem to be in rapid decline. Jenelle has just filed for a restraining order against David, and he’s fighting back.
“I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” Jenelle Evans revealed on Instagram last week.
“I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But its been my life,” she continued. “Like anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy. With time away from Teen Mom I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes.
“I’m starting that now,” she wrote. Jenelle then continued to explain what is happening with her family.
The kids and I have moved away from [David Eason]
Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids.
Today I’ve filed papers to start that process.
I appreciate the support from everybody who has asked how I am. Me and the kids are doing great. We need some time to be together. But you’ll hear from us again soon.
But according to an update by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, that’s not the only legal action that Jenelle has taken. She’s also allegedly filed for and was granted a restraining order against David… and is now hiding out.
“Jenelle is in hiding,” a source revealed to The Ashley. “She has no plans to return to The Land. She left the state and does not plan to come back to North Carolina for her stuff or anything. The kids are with her.”
They went on, “The restraining order was granted because Jenelle was able to show proof [to the judge] that abuse had occurred. Now that David’s been served, she can begin the divorce proceedings.”
