Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans breaks silence after husband is charged with child abuse
Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason, has been charged with child abuse involving his 14 year old stepson Jace. This follows a child neglect investigation that started earlier this month involving both Jenelle and David.
The investigation kicked off after Jenelle, a former reality star, reported her son missing for the third time. In September, it was reported that Jace had escaped through a window at home and ran into the woods.
Jace later told police that his stepdad, David, had hurt him. He was seen with bruises on his neck and arms. Child Protective Services and the police reportedly got hold of a video from a Ring doorbell that seemed to show a fight involving Jace.
Jenelle, who shares Jace with her ex Andrew Lewis, won custody of her son from her mum Barbara Evans in March 2023. Barbara had looked after Jace when he was little because Jenelle couldn't due to personal and legal issues. This year, Barbara accused Jenelle's husband David of hurting Jace, but Jenelle defended him on social media.
On X, which used to be Twitter, Jenelle wrote in early October: "This isn't about David whether you want to blame him or not. My mom says a lot of untrue things lately to everyone about me but wanted me to have custody? Imagine what you don't hear from my side," She added: "I feel now she's using police to falsely report just trying to make us look bad as a family. There are multiple people involved in this situation and they know the truth, and so does God."
The former MTV star also said that her mum hasn't tried to get in touch with her or her three kids since July. We still don't know why David has been charged recently, but it's reported to be a minor offence.
Jenelle is known for her role in the popular reality TV show Teen Mom 2, which follows young mums from the second season of 16 and Pregnant. However, she was let go from the show in May 2019 after it was alleged that David had hurt and shot Jenelle's dog Nugget, although he was never charged for this incident.
