Things might be looking up for embattled Teen Mom 2 alum Jenelle Evans. The former reality star has been fighting CPS for custody of her children for weeks in the aftermath of husband David Eason‘s dog killing incident. But now, according to Radar Online, it seems like the 27-year-old is going to be able to spend some time with one of her kids who was removed from her home — 5-year-old Kaiser — for his birthday weekend. Scroll through the gallery below for details.
It’s been six weeks since Jenelle and David lost custody of three out of their five children. Jenelle has 9-year-old son Jace and a 5-year-old son Kaiser from previous relationships and David has 11-year-old daughter Maryssa and 5-year-old son Kaden from previous relationships. Then, they share 2-year-old daughter Ensley together. But since Jenelle doesn’t have custody of Jace (he lives with her mom, Barbara Evans) and David doesn’t have custody of Kaden, only Maryssa, Kaiser and Ensley were removed from their home.
“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,” David wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post on May 1.
“I’m all about protecting my family,” he continued. “It is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for, and my family means that much to me. 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.”
After the incident, a CPS investigation was opened against the couple. Just weeks later, CPS ordered for the removal of the three children who were living at Jenelle and David’s home at the time of the incident: Kaiser, Ensley and Maryssa.
A judge ordered that Maryssa should stay with her maternal grandmother, while Kaiser is in the care of his father and Jenelle’s ex, Nathan Griffith. Finally, Jenelle’s mother, Barbara is caring for Ensley.
Jenelle and David went to court to fight for custody of their children. On May 28, they officially lost temporary custody of the kids after a judge ruled that Jenelle failed “to protect” her children during the dog killing incident at their home, according to The Ashley.
“Today was a pre-adjudication hearing. Then there will be an adjudication hearing and an outcome,” a source close to the MTV star told Radar on June 25. An adjudication hearing is when CPS tries to prove the allegations made against the parents to a judge.
