Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason are making headlines once again, but this time it involves serious child abuse allegations. Eason has been charged with child abuse after Evans’ son Jace, 14, went missing for the third time in just six weeks. The charge is a misdemeanor, and the investigation began after Jace’s latest disappearance last month.
The ongoing proceedings have taken an unexpected turn, as there is now a possibility that Evans may also face charges. Video evidence of an assault involving Jace has surfaced, leading authorities to consider holding Evans accountable as well.
In the midst of the legal turmoil, Jace has been returned to the care of his maternal grandmother, Barbara Evans. However, tensions within the family are escalating. Taking to TikTok, Jenelle complained about harassment on social media and stood by David in a video. She blamed her mother Barbara for the child abuse probe and urged her followers to keep their opinions to themselves.
Jenelle expressed her desire to provide her followers with real content and updates on her situation. In another video, she opened up about her depression and the difficulty of the ongoing situation. She vehemently denied treating her children poorly and accused her mother of causing the storm. The custody battle over Jace has been a constant source of frustration for Jenelle.
Adding fuel to the fire, recent photos have emerged of Jenelle and David at a gun and knife show. Eason apparently purchased a bulletproof vest and a wooden battle ax, raising concerns about the couple’s mindset.
The Child Protective Services (CPS) probe into the actions of Evans and Eason is now said to be in its final stages, with the likelihood of charges being filed against one or both of them. During a recent custody hearing, Eason was removed from the courtroom, and Jenelle was prohibited from speaking with Jace.
The court is taking the allegations against Eason seriously, especially after marks were found on Jace’s arms and neck. The investigation has also expanded to include the couple’s other children, as Jace claims he is not the only one who has been physically harmed. The judge has separated the children from Jenelle during interviews to ensure their safety.
Jenelle regained custody of Jace earlier this year, but trouble seems to be brewing with her other son Kaiser, whom she shares with ex-partner Nathan Griffith. There have been reports of behavioral issues at school, suggesting that Kaiser may be acting out as a cry for help.
Adding more complications, Eason’s daughter Maryssa also lives with the family. CPS investigators were allegedly prevented from speaking to both Kaiser and their daughter Ensley during the investigations. As a result, the judge has ruled that the children will now be interviewed away from Jenelle, to ensure neutral and unbiased outcomes.
All eyes are now on the upcoming hearing to determine Jace’s living situation with his grandmother. The courtroom drama continues as the legal proceedings unfold, leaving fans and critics alike eager for updates on this troubling situation. Stay tuned for more updates from Guam News Factor.
