Jenelle Evans and David Eason of Teen Moms 2 fame have lost custody of their three children after a court order from a North Carolina judge noted failure of protection when making the decision.

The decision comes almost a month after Eason, Evans’ husband, shot and killed the reality star’s French Bulldog Nugget. Eason pulled the trigger on the pup after he snapped at their daughter, prompting the life threatening incident which garnered national attention.

“At this time we are cooperating with the judge and legal team from court,” said Evans’ manager Johnny Donovan to Us Weekly. “We have no comment at this time and we appreciate the concerns regarding our client and her children. We will continue to cooperate with the court and their decisions.”

While the children were removed from the household earlier this month, they remained in legal custody of the Eason and Evans.

Things seem to be going well for the couple, though, who were seen holding hands during their appearance to court where multiple people testified against the couple.

Evans was recently fired from MTV for making homophobic remarks on social media. The network made claims on May 7 that they stopped filming the show and do not plan to cover Evans’ side of the story.


Evans has responded to MTV by saying “I respect their decision and have nothing but love for MTV,” choosing to focus on maintaining custody of her kids instead of pursuing another season of her show.

Since the decision was made by the judge, Evans and Eason’s daughter, Ensley Jolie Eason, was reportedly put in temporary custody of Evans’ mother, Barbara Evans, who already had custody of her daughter’s eldest son, Jace Vahn Evans, or most of his life. Kaiser Orion Griffith, whom the starshares with ex Nathan Griffith, will reportedly stay with his father.
