Yesterday, Jenelle Evans shocked the Teen Mom world by announcing that she had filed for divorce from her husband and the father of her third child, David Eason.
Since then, there has been an outpouring of support and concern for the former MTV cast member as she goes through this understandably difficult time.
Now, another update is coming out about the mother of three: she’s leaving her home in North Carolina and moving to Tennessee during the proceedings.
Although there have been rumors of Jenelle Evans and David Eason splitting up for some time now, fans weren’t sure how much truth there was to it until yesterday, Oct. 31, when Jenelle revealed in an emotional Instagram post that she was divorcing her husband David Eason.
“I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” she began.
“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.
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.
In addition to Jenelle’s post, TMZ reported that sources say Jenelle is partially motivated to protect her children and her career. They also report that Jenelle has decided she does not want to participate in a marriage that is unhealthy for her and her children.
According to an update by Radar Online, Jenelle has now moved away from her family home in North Carolina and is now staying in Tennessee.
A source revealed to Radar that David “doesn’t know where she is.” The source added, “He didn’t know anything about this. He thinks she’s around town but she’s not and she’s not going to go back until he’s gone. He thinks she’s just gone for a couple of days.”
