Former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans took to Instagram last week to let her fans know that she had left her husband David Eason after a tumultuous two-year marriage, and now Eason has broken his silence on the split. After posting a pic of his daughters Ensley and Maryssa early Sunday morning, Eason responded to a comment from a follower, and the word he used to describe his estranged wife was negative and childish.
Eason posted a pic that featured two-year-old Ensley – who he shares with Evans – in a play school bus inside a mall, and Eason’s 11-year-old daughter Maryssa (from a previous relationship) was beside her.
When someone wrote in the comments “So glad Jenelle got smart,” Eason replied, “Nope, she’s still stupid.”
The 31-year-old then posted a story from TMZ about Evans’ involvement in a road rage incident and he asked, “But this is okay?” Eason eventually deleted that post.
According to TMZ, Evans is ready to fight Eason over custody of Ensley because she believes that she is the “more fit parent of the two,” especially after he shot and killed the family dog Nugget back in the spring after the dog nipped Ensley.
While Evans wants full custody, that doesn’t mean she plans to keep Ensley away from Eason. Insiders say that Evans acknowledges that Eason loves his daughter and is a good dad, so she is willing to make an agreement that allows him to see his youngest daughter.
Evans wrote in her Instagram post that announced the split that she wants what is best for her kids and she wants to be happy. She added that since MTV fired her from Teen Mom that she has had the opportunity to look at her life differently, and she realized she needed to make some changes.
Sources claim that another reason Evans called it quits was because she believes that staying with Eason will ruin her chances of having any kind of career. She’s lost her job on Teen Mom 2 and her makeup line has been a complete failure, and she believes Eason is to blame. Evans is also reportedly running out of cash, and she needs an income.
Now, Jenelle Evans is already trying to get a meeting with MTV so she can beg for her job back. Her pitch is that she’s good for ratings, and they fired her not because of anything she did, but because of Eason’s controversies.
This story is far from over, so fans will have to wait and see how it plays out.
New episodes of Teen Mom 2 air Tuesday nights on MTV.
