Jace is currently with Jenelle’s mother Barbara who has had custody of the nine-year-old for most of his life.
‘Barbara and Jenelle are fighting,’ a source told Us. ‘They aren’t speaking. Jenelle has been very emotional. Barbara is not letting Jenelle see Jace.’
CPS was reportedly ‘trying to locate’ the couple to gain access to the property on Tuesday as they believe ‘David is extremely dangerous’ after previously threatening anyone who attempted to trespass.

David videotaped Ensley playing with their French Bulldog and shared the clip to his followers on one of his many social media accounts.
As Ensley tried to kiss the puppy named Nugget, the dog — who is clearly uncomfortable as it cowers and pulls away from the little girl — nipped back at the girls face while the video continued to roll on.
He then threw the dog’s body out of the door before grabbing a pistol and shotgun and returning outside to shoot the puppy to death, only to return to the home ‘covered in blood.’

Jenelle posted on Monday afternoon that ‘#MothersDay wasn’t the cookout I expected and planned with all my kids’ as she shared a photo milking a goat.

‘MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of ‘Teen Mom 2’ with him since,” MTV said in a statement following the news of the killing. ‘Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.’
Shortly after news broke that Jenelle’s husband viciously murdered their dog in front of Kaiser, Nathan called authorities to ask for a welfare check, according to TMZ.
‘I guess there was a dispute with my ex-fiancée and her husband and he shot a dog. And there’s been multiple 911 calls of abuse,’ he said in the 911 call. ‘And I’m just trying to figure out where my son’s at and what I should do in this situation right now. I’m just so confused right now … I just want to make sure my son is safe.’
She was attempting to appear on Marriage Boot Camp, but
Jenelle is ‘focusing on her family’ now that MTV has parted ways with the reality star and her large brood after following her for eight years, according to
The former reality star has been married to David for nearly three years and was ‘very grateful’ for the opportunity to appear on Teen Mom 2 (a spin-off from the network’s 16 and Pregnant), a representative said in a statement.
Oh no! She was attempting to appear on Marriage Boot Camp, but TMZ reported that her husband David Eason must be ‘evaluated by a psychologist’ before the couple signs a contract
The end: MTV announced last week that Jenelle, shown in April 2016 with David in Burbank, California, would not appear on any upcoming seasons
Last straw: The network originally kicked Eason off the show following a series of homophobic tweets
The animal cruelty incident led to an advertiser exodus for MTV, though it’s not clear if the companies will be returning to the series now that Jenelle is out of the picture.
Brands including Chipotle, Dove Chocolates, TWIX, Greenies pet treats and Persil ProClean have all withdrawn from the program.
It was Griffin who revealed Eason’s alleged animal cruelty. After hearing that her husband had shot their dog, he requested a wellness check on his son, believing that he had been in the house at the time of the shooting, according to
‘I don’t give a d*mn what animal bites my baby on the face. Whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I don’t put up with that s*** at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me,’ he wrote when the incident went public.
‘You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge whether or not an animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.’
Friends and family are worried about the three children, and there’s also concern surrounding Jenelle’s pitbull, Jax, as Eason has reportedly shot the animal prior with a bb gun, and they worry he may lash out further.
Rage outburst? Eason admitted Wednesday to murdering the dog, shown with him in August 2018 on Instagram, claiming that it bit Ensley

Concern: In addition to killing the little French Bulldog, Eason has reportedly shot Jenelle’s pitbull Jax prior with a bb gun
Law enforcement officers have been hesitant to enter Jenelle and David’s property due to multiple no trespassing signs and the presence of the pitbull.
In North Carolina, killing a dog is a Class H Felony under the Animal-Cruelty statute, but officials told TMZ on Wednesday that they will only go after David if Jenelle reports him, something she has so far refused to do.
David posted multiple photos of his extensive gun collection, including a screed from December when he criticized President Donald Trump for banning bump stocks, a modification to semi-automatic rifles allowing them to fire faster, mimicking fully automatic weapons.
He also mentioned that the Secret Service had visited him due to his seemingly threatening statements, just six months after Jenelle accused her husband of breaking her collarbone while violently ‘pinning her down on the ground.’
‘He got violent because he’s been drinking,’ Evans sobbed to the 911 operator in October. ‘I’m recovering from a surgery on Monday. I can’t breathe. I have four kids in the house with me right now. They’re all sleeping. I don’t know what to do. He left the house. I don’t know what to do right now.’
Jenelle later revealed to
Hesitant: Police have been hesitant to approach Eason’s home due to the family pitbull, his multiple no trespassing signs, and his well-advertised collection of fire arms
