Jenelle Evans is a single girl. After an extremely tough year, the former Teen Mom 2 star is taking time to focus on herself. Fans of the show watched as Evans got fired from the show earlier this year, lost custody of her children, and had an extremely rocky relationship with her husband, David Eason.
But now, things are changing.
All the things David Eason cost Jenelle Evans
Evans had been in the Teen Mom franchise since her pregnancy with her oldest son Jace Evans was shown on 16 and Pregnant. But all of that came to an end when she married Eason. As a result of a string of homophobic tweets, Eason was fired from MTV.
“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” the network said in a statement to People at the time. “With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.”
In addition to losing her spot on Teen Mom 2, Evans also lost custody of her children after Eason shot the family dog in front of them.
He claimed that he shot the dog to protect his daughter, Ensley.
“It was a situation where my daughter, her health, her safety was in danger,” he said on People Now.
“This was something that nobody wants to ever have to do,” he continued. “The dog was aggressive. Yes, she might not be huge or whatever, but you know when a dog bites a child on the face more than one time, then it should never be around the child again. If you give the dog up for adoption, one day it’s going to be around children again.”
At that point, Eason killed the dog so that the authorities wouldn’t have to.
“If you call the authorities at that point, the law says the dog has to be euthanized. I’m not going to pay anyone to euthanize my dog when I could do it myself.”
“I mean, I loved that dog,” Eason said. “I still think about her every day. It’s really hard for me. A lot of people put me down for it, they hate me for it, but like I said it was not something I wanted to do.”
Jenelle Evans breaks up with Eason
After such a tumultuous year, Evans finally decided to call it quits with Eason. On Oct. 31, she finally took to Instagram to announce her separation from him.
“I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” she wrote. “I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But it’s been my life.”
“I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now,” she wrote. “The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process.”
How is Jenelle Evans getting revenge on David Eason?
Eason cost Evans a lot in the past few years. Now, she is getting back at him by working on herself.
She recently shared a quote on her Instagram story to show just how over Eason she is.

“Females break up mentally before they break up physically,” the quote read. “A guy can think he has her on lock while laying beside her but her mind is in another place. Be careful how you treat her because once you lose the head, the body follows and that is real.”
She’s also been hitting the gym consistently since the split, working on her physical well-being. In addition to that, Evans has been looking pretty dolled up in a number of recent selfies shared to her Instagram stories.
You go, Jenelle. Self care is the best form of revenge.
