She’s overjoyed. In a shocking turn of events, Jenelle Evans confirmed that a judge “dismissed” the custody case against her and David Eason while exiting the Columbus County courthouse in North Carolina on Wednesday, July 3. The Teen Mom 2 alum later shared the big news with her followers on Twitter, writing that she’s “crying in tears of joy.”

Jenelle, 27, was all smiles when she was spotted leaving court, revealing that she was “very happy” with the outcome ahead of the holiday. In the new video captured by Radar Online, David, 31, also shared his thoughts on the matter. “Just stay on your P’s and Q’s because some people try to accuse you of things that are not necessarily true; blow things out of the water that are very, very small,” he said while getting into the car with Jenelle, adding, “had a lot of that happen here.”

The reality star and her husband have been trying to get their kids back ever since Child Protective Services stepped in to remove the children from their care. The couple was under investigation after CPS received a complaint that the kids in their home could be in danger.

Together, the couple has five children. Jenelle has two kids from previous relationships — Jace, 9, and Kaiser, 4, — and David has two from previous relationships, Kaden and Maryssa. They share one biological child together, a two-year-old daughter named Ensley.

A North Carolina judge previously ruled that Jenelle and David would no longer have custody of the children in May after David shot the family’s French bulldog, Nugget, for “snapping” at Ensley.

The day after the news broke about Nugget, David shared a statement online defending his decision to take action. “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,” he wrote. “I’m all about protecting my family,” David continued. “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 a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.”
