They have a huge battle ahead of them!
Until Jenelle Evans gets full custody of her son Jace, it’s likely that she’ll be in and out of court practically her entire life. At this point, she has plenty of experience fighting custody cases. Although she’s had her custody of Jace increased slowly but surely over the years, she still hasn’t managed to convince courts that she deserves to be the primary caretaker of her son. That means she’ll probably be seeing the inside of another courtroom very soon.
All of her custody experience will be much needed because there’s another custody battle she’ll have to help fight very soon. This time, it’s involving her stepson.
We all know that Jenelle has three children of her own: Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley. But when she married David Eason, she went from being the mother of three to being the mother of five! David also had two previous children from two different baby mamas, making Jenelle their legal step-mother.
David’s daughter Maryssa has made her appearance in many snaps and photoshoots of Jenelle’s since their families combined. As for Jenelle’s stepson Kaden, it’s as if he doesn’t exist. His mother has primary custody of him currently, but David Eason is trying to shake all of that up. In fact, he’s taking his baby mama, Olivia Leedham, to court.
“Plaintiff has communicated to Defendant that she has unilaterally decided to cease any contact or communication between Defendant and the minor child,” stated the court documents David filed according to Radar Online. “Plaintiff has refused to allow the weekend and holiday visitation specified in the court order.”
David has some skeletons in his closet, which is no secret. His ex is airing all of his dirty laundry as she fights to keep their son, accusing him of homophobic, drunken, and abusive behavior. In fact, she claims that David abused her while she was pregnant with their son.
David “endangered the life of the child by pushing Plaintiff when she was eight months pregnant and by leaving her in the middle of the road at night when she was seven months pregnant,” the court papers revealed, according to Radar.
She claimed that although things were “stable” for a while, things are getting worse with David and Jenelle. She seems concerned about what’s happening on “The Land.”
“The Defendant is exhibiting erratic and concerning behavior and his life appears to have again deteriorated into chaos,” the court papers read. “The Defendant and Ms. Evans do not appear to be stable themselves or their relationship, nor do they appear to have a peaceful home life.”
According to Olivia Leedham, David’s appearance on Teen Mom is not helping his case. “Despite knowing that he is being filmed for a nationally televised reality show, the Defendant has regularly been seen arguing with Ms Evans on the show,” she wrote in the court papers. She’s even concerned that David might abuse Jenelle, writing:
“Based on her prior experience with the Defendant, or observations from the media, and her recent interactions with him, the Plaintiff is concerned that domestic violence is likely to occur between [David] and Ms. Evans, especially in front of the minor child.”
