MTV is reportedly ready to fire Jenelle Evans from “Teen Mom 2” amid allegations that her husband shot and killed her dog for biting their 2-year-old daughter.
Sources close to the reality show told Radar Online that MTV is planning to part ways with Evans, 27, as companies pull their ads. Insiders claimed the other moms have been filming but not Evans—who they say is on the outs after MTV films the reunion show.
“Jenelle hasn’t filmed once since the reunion,” a source told Radar. “Crews are filming with the other girls, but not her.”
The Blast reported that Evans’ husband, David Eason, was witnessed beating the French bulldog in front of their minor children before taking the dog outside and fatally shooting it. Eason reportedly killed Evans’ dog, named Nugget, for snapping at their toddler daughter.
Speaking with the news outlet, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that they responded to Evans’ home Tuesday evening but said nobody was home. They returned Tuesday morning and spoke with Eason, who claimed everyone at the residence was safe, police said.
Eason allegedly posted footage of the encounter which he said led him to kill the canine, named Nugget, to his Instagram account.
“I dont 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 dont put up with that s**t at all,” he reportedly wrote in the now-deleted post.
The post continued, “I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes 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 isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively.”
According to Radar, MTV had fired Eason from “Teen Mom 2” last year for his hot temper. Meanwhile, sources told TMZ that Eason’s sought anger management as he’s realized that his behavior is putting a strain on their relatively new marriage.
As far as legal repercussions go, the sheriff’s office has reportedly informed Columbus County Animal Control of the dog’s alleged shooting. Animal control told The Blast that there’s nothing they can do as they handle abuse claims involving animals that are alive.
Since then, the tabloid reported that Child Protective Services is investigating the couple for last week’s incident after someone contacted the agency claiming that their toddler daughter could be experiencing emotional distress after witnessing the dog’s death.
Further, a law enforcement source revealed to TMZ that a sheriff’s official characterized Eason as the “most dangerous person” they’ve seen in three counties. Authorities have also received word that Eason had shot at his wife’s pit bull with a BB gun for chasing animals on the property.
Reports indicated that Eason won’t face criminal charges for the dog’s death unless Evans reports it.
