Jenelle Evans restraining order


Just five days after splitting from her abusive husband David Eason, Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has been granted a temporary restraining order against her ex.

Jenelle and David are no strangers to controversy, but documents obtained by E! News this afternoon showed that what we’ve seen was only the tip of the iceberg. While filing for a temporary restraining order against her husband on behalf of herself and her three children, Jace Evans, Kaiser Griffith, and Ensley Eason, Jenelle described 11 alleged incidents involving David during the past two years including David’s highly publicized killing of the family dog, which led to Jenelle’s firing from the Teen Mom franchise.

David has been accused of physical and verbal abuse, assembling a large stockpile of weapons, and making threats against Jenelle including an incident where he told her she was a “piece of sh*t” who could “die for all [he cared].” The documents also detailed incidents when David locked Kaiser in a running car, sent Jenelle threatening texts, and implied that he would kill himself if Jenelle did not come back to him.

The protection order mandates that David not post about Jenelle online, but that hasn’t stopped him from calling 911 to report Jenelle and the children as missing persons earlier today, as confirmed by Radar Online. That same day, David made a separate emergency call claiming one of his dogs had been stolen from his North Carolina property. Before the restraining order was granted, David both called Jenelle “stupid” in an Instagram comment and shaded her alleged road rage incident in a now-deleted post captured by E!.

Jenelle has left the state and is safe with her children in Tenessee. She has yet to officially file for divorce from David, but we’re glad to see that Jenelle has taken the first steps towards separating her family from David’s dangerous and toxic influence.
