Later, Jenelle’s youngest daughter, Ensley, and her stepdaughter, Maryssa, were removed by CPS following the dog killing incident. Ensley, Maryssa and Kaiser were reportedly in the home at the time of the shooting.
David took to Instagram in early May to explain why he felt justified in shooting Nugget and wrote, “I don’t give a damn 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–t at all.
No matter what his explanation is, David and Jenelle now have to deal with the reality that they’ve lost their kids in the wake of the shooting. Jenelle’s mom, Barbara Evans, was advised by CPS to keep Jenelle’s 9-year-old Jace with her since she has custody of him.
Plus, Kaiser was picked up from daycare by his grandma, Doris, on May 10. “Kaiser was taken away Friday without my consent, before Mother’s Day, and I have been in touch with my lawyer pertaining this matter,” Jenelle told Us Weekly.
After Nugget was killed, Kailyn spoke out about the incident. “I have refrained from commenting on the disturbing situation involving David Eason and Jenelle Evans while I wrapped my head around the murder of Nugget,” she wrote in a statement shared on May 5. “To say I am disgusted and appalled over David’s actions doesn’t begin to touch on my true feelings.”
“I want to make it clear that neither myself or my company, Pothead Haircare, condone violence against animals. Being the owner of dogs myself, I am heartbroken and sickened by what happened to Nugget,” the Teen Mom 2 star continued.
Kail concluded the post, “I hope that Jenelle and her children are safe and take the necessary steps to get the help that is clearly needed.” Apparently, some people think Ensley would be safer with Kailyn herself.
Kailyn noted of Jenelle’s departure from Teen Mom 2, “I think that people did watch the show for Jenelle and I don’t think that that can be denied. I think the drama is hurting the show and it’s unfortunate for those who have worked really hard to kind of rebuild our reputation.”
Frankly, we think it’s a little weird that anyone would even bring up the possibility to Kailyn. She’s already got a lot on her plate with her business and kids, and she and Jenelle are not exactly besties.
Do you think it’s kind of weird of Teen Mom 2 fans to ask Kailyn about taking Jenelle’s kids in? Do you think any of the Teen Mom cast members would do that for each other’s kids? Let us know in the comments below.
