We’re just going to cut straight to the chase here. Jenelle Evans and David Eason have clapped back at David’s ex, who is raising money through a Go Fund Me for legal fees. She is attempting to gain full custody of their son, Kaden, and Jenelle and David are defending themselves against her claims.
Jenelle posted a lengthy Facebook post explaining her side of the story.
When I first asked about David’s his son, Kaden, he was very emotional. He explained to me that David and Olivia Leedham brokeup due to her being unfaithful and abusive towards David. Olivia left marks on David’s skin and would “hangout” with other men in their driveway while smoking marijuana in the car and David was sleeping inside. Olivia thought it was also very funny to kick men’s private areas and did this frequently to David and his friends.
Jenelle then continued to explain ways that Olivia has had problems with substance abuse.
“David also explained Olivia had an excessive alcohol problem. Her problem was so severe she ended up in Alcohol Anonymous and has not been back to a class for years. Olivia would beg David to go with her to AA so she wouldn’t be alone.”
According to Jenelle, “when Olivia got pregnant she kept the abusive behavior going.”
David was there for his son’s birth in November of 2013 and they lived together with Kaden until he was 8 months old. At that point they broke up due to Olivia’s alcohol abuse and violent behavior towards David. She was staying up all hours of the night drinking liquor with her friends. They would be very loud and partying in the house while David would be sleeping with Maryssa and Kaden.
She continues to explain that Olivia warped the story of her abuse into being the victim of David.
When David and Olivia broke up she decided to go to the magistrate a week later and charge him with domestic violence claiming he choked her, hit her with a phone and said he would kill her. Of course when they went to court Olivia was caught in several lies during the trial including an admission that she lied in her original statement to the magistrate after being asked in several different ways. Her statement on stand during testimony was “Well he didn’t actually choke me.” “He didn’t leave any marks he just put his hand on my chest” “he didn’t actually throw the phone at me. He threw it at the pillow on the bed.” David was found “Not Guilty” of all charges.
Jenelle continues to explain the timeline of their relationship, including David’s stint in jail for an unrelated charge. She highlights examples of Olivia cheating on David while they were together, as well as fights the couple had, which resulted in a “no contact order” being placed against David.
David filed to go to mediation during the No Contact Order situation and they both settled outside of court. Olivia claimed she “didn’t want Kaden” at our home from the beginning of the session and also claimed the “TV show was all the evidence she needed”. The court explained to her that you cannot keep a child from his father no matter what you do.
She then explains that Olivia has brought men in and out of her children’s life with little commitment to stability in these relationships. Jenelle defends David and says that he has never been a perpetrator of domestic abuse. She concludes her post by defending David and herself as parents.
Since having our issues we have done co-parenting classes, domestic violence courses, anger management, and hair follicle drug tested. We did this voluntarily on our own Will to be better people and move on from our past. Co-Parenting is about working WITH each other, not AGAINST each other.
I will not put Olivia down as a mother, but I will say she is not a horrible friend, girlfriend, employee, or wife. Olivia Leedham is an alcoholic, cheater, drug addict, scam artist, and spouse abuser. David and I are very concerned with Kaden’s situation being in/out of a different home every 2 months, different men he doesn’t know and having to call them “Daddy”, being abusive towards men she dates, and her drug addictions to adderall/alcohol.
