‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Jenelle Evans Makes “Domestic Violence Confessional” Video To Address Rumors Her Husband David Eason is Abusing Her

“Everything is super!”

Jenelle Evans made her first appearance on social media in over a week on Thursday to update fans on her situation following her frantic 911 call earlier this month in which she alleged her husband David Eason pinned her to the ground and injured her collarbone while he was drunk.

In a video posted to her YouTube channel, Jenelle first tells her fans that she’s hiding in her closet to make the video. (She clarifies that she’s hiding from her kids.)

After The Ashley broke the news that emergency personnel were called to The Land on October 13, Jenelle has issued several statements to spin the story in various ways, but this marks the first time she’s addressed the domestic violence rumors on-camera.

“I’ve been wanting to get some things off my chest lately because obviously my name can’t stay out of the news,” Jenelle says in the video. “I just want to let you guys know that I’m completely fine… I know everyone’s concerned about me and I know everyone wants to know ‘Is she OK? How are the kids?’ Everything’s fine.”

Jenelle then stated that she knows what a domestic violence situation is, given that she’s been in several of them.

“I’ve been in so many domestic violence situations in the past that I would not put up with it now,” Jenelle says. “I don’t know why you guys think I would continue to stay in this relationship if I was being abused… I can tell you, my past, when MTV didn’t film and we took a break from filming, it was horrible.

“I’ve been in two or three relationships that were domestic violence, and what did I do? I kept Jace away from it. I had just him at the time,” she added. “When I had my visits, I made sure I was alone and that other person wasn’t around me. I don’t want to give any names because I don’t want anyone blowing up my social media because I said s**t.”

“Everything is A-OK on The Land!”

As ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans know, several of Jenelle’s boyfriends have been arrested for domestic violence in the past after altercations with her. In 2012, Jenelle’s then-fiance Gary Head was arrested for assault on a female (among other things) after a fight with Jenelle. Gary discussed this incident during the ‘Teen Mom 2’ “Ex Files” special that aired in December 2017.

Nathan Griffith, another former fiance of Jenelle’s, was arrested for criminal domestic violence following an altercation with Jenelle in 2015. That incident occurred as MTV cameras rolled, and eventually ended up airing on ‘Teen Mom 2.’

Anyway, in her YouTube video, Jenelle insisted that she’s never falsely accused anyone of getting violent with her.

“Every time I tell you guys about it, or every time I open up, you guys are like, ‘No, she’s lying, she’s putting him in jail, she’s such a f**king liar.’ Well, that’s not the case at all,” Jenelle said. “I was always telling you the truth about everything that happened with every one of my relationships. And if you don’t believe me, I don’t know what to f**king tell you.”

Jenelle then stated that she and David are living a happy life together on The Land.

“With that being said, my mom is here behind closed doors all the time now that she’s involved in my life again, and all my close friends and family, they know I’m doing fine. They know I’m happy,” Jenelle said. “Every time I told you guys I was in a domestic violence situation, you would not believe me. Now that I’m saying that I’m not, you guys are trying to tell me something different. I’m just sick of hearing it. Just stop.”

Oddly, Jenelle never actually brought up her 911 call in the video, or the incident that caused her to make that call.

“You guys can tune into ‘Teen Mom’ this season,” she added. “You’ll see all this f**king drama unfold.”

As The Ashley told you last week, Jenelle and Barbara did film about the October 13 incident; however, the version of the story that Jenelle told while filming varied greatly from the one she told the 911 operator on the night of the altercation.

“Jenelle filmed about it with [her mother] Barbara and basically said they were both super drunk and she just tripped and fell into David and they both thought the other was attacking them, so that’s how it got blown out of proportion and why she called 911,” a behind-the-scenes source told The Ashley last week. “The story was really out there.”

Anyway, you can watch Jenelle’s video below!

  1. Okay, clearly this girl is about as dumb as a box of rocks. So if she’s going to continue being abused and knocked around, then what’s the point in wasting our time and telling this girl to leave. She sticks up for him, lies for him and puts herself and her kids in danger. It’s only a matter of time before CPS finally takes the kids away. As for Jenelle, she can continue to be married to that abusive, racist, homophobic piece of garbage. MTV needs to just fire her immediately and take her off the air. I can’t stand girls like this.

  2. He looks like a freak he is so fugly. That stupid looking beard. And Jenelle has a look on her face like look at my bad ass man. Honey u got a worthless piece of shit as a man.

  3. Will it take the death of one of her kids for CPS to take action or MTV to fire this ignorant, racist, homophobic gun toting bitch!

  4. Hmmm Jenelle, at 1:44 you moved that hair just a littttle too much off your collarbone and the bruises were showing for a second. Might want to put another turtleneck back on.

    P.S. The fact that you seriously believe that you can make this video and come off like you’re telling the truth is honestly insane.

  5. Okay… I can’t stand the immature, selfish, clueless, and ungrateful bitch that is Jenelle. But this video is so revealing of the life she’s in now. I’ve been where she is – his control and abuse wasn’t as volatile and explosive as the past guys so he didn’t come off as ‘bad’. But now he’s so controlling that everything she says and does goes thru this ‘David filter’ that her brain as designed like a reflex. Look at her eyes. I don’t see the same heated Jenelle. I see nothing. I read this article and the words seemed normal for her but when I watched the video I was shocked at how much she ISN’T the normal Jenelle. It’s almost robotic. This really is scary and I’m actually afraid something bad will happen. I thought all of this about the Pratt’s too but then again Spencer is actually smarter than David so less impulsively physical. But same empty look in Heidi’s eyes. Same plastic surgery binges.

    Maybe if Dr Drew played less of a host and more of a doctor, Jenelle wouldn’t still be in these types of relationships; Adam and Ryan wouldn’t have as many legal and drug problems; Farrah would’ve treated her family and the crew with more respect or at the very least not gotten away with it to the point that now she’s a spoiled and egocentric waste of space, etc etc. He should have been admonishing and counseling their actions in those reunions – instead he walked on eggshells with them and gave them the power.

    I’m interested in this show because of its constant impact on the younger generations. Unfortunately, however, by the show’s troublemakers consistently ‘getting away’ with their shit, what is being taught then? That you can be a terrible person but because we’re all human, you are owed forgiveness. That’s a very dangerous philosophy, as seen in the online bullying, in school bullying and mass shootings. We can be and are encouraged to be disrespectful with our own nation’s elected Leader for eff’s sake! It might seem like a stretch but think about it… It isn’t just the sex life of teenagers that are affected by this show.

  6. OMG she found a new excuse for not taking care of Jace. We had ‘I was too young’, ‘I already have so much going on in my life’, ‘Well Jace, they took you away cause I was poor at the time’, ‘It was all Babs’ and now: ‘I protected Jace from my abusive partners, I’m such a good mom, he was better of at my mom’s’.

  7. Where the hell is CPS?! My mom and stepdad got physical when I was younger and I had to talk to social workers whenever the cops were involved while I was home. This is insane, those poor children.

  8. I would like to point out how she said she’s been in “two or three” abusive relationships. That right there tells you what a lie this video is. It is either two or it is three, and you don’t forget.

  9. Then why did you call 911 Jenelle?!!!! ?? Damn whatever happens to her at this point. All I care about is the kids. I work as a clinical social worker in a pediatric specialties clinic in Florida and even when we make referrals to DCF/CPS here for things like medical neglect, the agencies here are all over it! Even if the kid is coming to appointments and the parents are keeping up with all of their medical needs, if the home situation is rocky and I find out about it, my antennas go up immediately! Where is CPS in North Carolina? I know they’ve been called out several times to the home, but I know they are within their limits to do more. I hope Nathan uses this to get Kaiser. Nathan isn’t the greatest, but he’s not like this either and I know he loves his son. He needs to step up!

    Also, all CPS/Case Workers are NOT social workers. There is a difference between the 2 fields. To be classified officially as a social worker, a person must have at least a Bachelors in social work or like myself, a Masters in social work. Simply being a case worker for a child protection agency doesn’t make a person a social worker. I see a lot of comments here dissing the State’s “social workers” for not stepping in. Most people with CPS are not social workers and have degrees in other fields since being a caseworker only requires you to have a bachelors in basically anything. As long as it’s a bachelors. 90% of CPS workers are NOT social workers.

    Social workers have to make a CPS report even if there is only a simple suspicion of abuse/neglect or we risk losing our licenses. Social workers themselves actually do a fantastic job of alerting CPS. It’s just certain States and certain CPS agencies that drag their asses on it sometimes.

  10. UHM we SAW her lying to Jace and calling HIM a liar for telling the truth about her actions (chasing & pulling a gun on a stranger).
    Soooooo forgive me for not believing a single word she ever says again.

  11. Okay, Jenelle. You placed a 911 call frantically crying and complaining that your husband pinned you down and had possibly broken your collar bone. So I’ll just sum up for you as plainly as I possibly can what being in a “domestically violent” relationship is:

    The. One. You. Are. In. Right. Now. With. This. Husband.


    (Cue huge eye roll — right about here.)

  12. I just remember the way her and David yelled at poor Kaiser when he touched the camera while they were taking those pictures. That was the real Jenelle and David…abusive creeps.

  13. Like, I’m thinking of how she never EVER saw red flags in the beginning already. They met on Tinder (I’m not commending people who actually found someone normal on the app but I think you are in the minority), he knew Courtland way before he met her, he had a domestic violence record when he pushed his PREGNANT girlfriend down the stairs, his views are shit…….like really woman, how can you overlook ALL of this.

    I’m pretty sure he is telling her what to say and to make a video about how everything is fine. This is worse than we thought. Someone needs to save her and the kids. (I may not like Jenelle but no one deserves such an abusive husband)

  14. well 2 things from my side:
    1. is it normal to be so super drank that you “think you are attacked” while having 4 kids present at home?
    2. where is Barbara? is she so super happy to get along with Jenelle that she even helps her to cover domestic violence?

  15. So she wants her past stories of domestic violence to be believed but not the story she gave from the 911 call? Ok, got it. That makes perfect sense.

  16. I think we can all agree….We just want the kids safe and given a chance. We all know they live in a toxic environment for various reasons. The list of people neglecting those kids keeps growing. It’s a sad situation (for the kids) At this point, we are all waiting for the moment when MTV, CPS, the Sheriff’s, family/ friends has blood on their hands.

    Jenelle, Get over yourself and get some intense therapy.

    David, You will be known as a racist,Homophobic Abusive A-hole for the rest of your life. The sick thing is…. he likes it.

  17. Yeah she deserves everything she gets after this point. Instead of worrying about keeping her kids safe all she worries about is making excuses for her man. She picks men over her children all the time.

  18. This is why I’ve been saying I feel absolutely no sympathy for Jenelle and she deserves everything that is coming to her. I am glad Barbara is with her despite the fact that Jenelle has treated her like shit all this time. Barbara is crazy but she has always been there for jenelle, whether she was fighting with her boyfriend of the hour, overdosing on a couch, or after entertaining her current soulmate with her mom’s credit cards. I’m just scared that david might hurt Barbara also when he finally takes out the shotgun, because y’all know he hates her. Whatever happens, I hope barbara and the kids make it out safe. I don’t give a shit about jenelle.

    This broad has fought harder for her piece of shit husband than she ever has for any of her kids. It’s a damn shame.

  19. I’ve never falsely accused any one of getting violent with me…until this time. It was true all the other times…but not this one. This was just a misunderstanding.

    Sure Jan

  20. I just can’t…! I’ve been there and I just finally got to start over. So as much i felt for her, my sympathy has died. Her sickening approach to clear David’s name is just appalling. If really nothing had happened then they would have ignored it and just went about life. David spent the whole time she was silent making it look like he was romancing her to smooth it over, now Jenelle is posting numerous pics suggesting life is great and shouting out “I love you!” To David in videos. Now this “confessional?” I find it funny how she got on Andrew about drinking when she was pregnant with Jace and went after Kieffer for drinking but David drinks all the time and now she’s so drunk she let this happen with her sleeping kids In the house?!

  21. This chick is a freaking psycho! “Why do you guys think I’d stay in relationships that are abusive?” Jenelle, YOU called 911! YOU said David abused you. Now you are acting shocked that people are talking! To be honest, I think she is just as abusive as any guy she’s been with. She fake cries constantly and accuses everyone of everything. Feed your kids, Jenelle! Put your kids above yourself for once in your pathetic life! I don’t give a f*ck about you! You act like Teen mom didn’t make you a millionaire! Let’s be honest, she will never unplug from social media. P.S. How are you getting the kids ready for school when you are hiding from them in the closet?

  22. We all know she’ll die rather than tell the truth. But the kids don’t get a vote, and that makes me sick.

  23. Being in a DV situation is never easy but she’s lying to herself, he won’t change,get out Jenelle and your kid’s out before it’s too late. I don’t believe for a second that 911 call was bogus, he’s probably threatened to kill you or the kid’s, MTV get her out before crap gets worse.

  24. She’s been strategically draping her hair over her left shoulder all week or wearing turtlenecks. Her teeth are missing. At this point, she’s only lying to herself.

        1. Yuck because it looks awful? And like I said before, I felt sorry for this bitch before, but no longer when she defends him and goes on YouTube to explain it all away. So yeah. Yuck.

          1. I understand. You don’t know very much or anything at all about domestic violence so I can see why you’re so ignorant and speaking like that.

          2. Girl I know A LOT about domestic violence, two of my siblings went through it so you can stfu right now

  25. Clearly Jenelle will never leave. Unfortunate for her, but what are you going to do? She’s an adult age-wise, so she can make her own decisions.

    Please, please, please – someone do something about the kids. It’s no wonder Barb is there all the time – she knows what’s up and she’s will to put up with UBT so she can protect the kids.


    I’m positive people connected with the show read this site and our comments – please Please PLEASE do something – get those kids out of there.

    We suspect that things are happening (and probably are), the fact that we aren’t there live and in person would work in David’s favor. It HAS to be someone that is physically on The Land.

    (emphasis mine)

    North Carolina General Statute § 7B-301. Duty to report abuse, neglect, dependency, or death due to maltreatment.

    (a) Any person or institution who has cause to suspect that any juvenile is abused, neglected, or dependent, as defined by G.S. 7B-101, or has died as the result of maltreatment, shall report the case of that juvenile to the director of the department of social services in the county where the juvenile resides or is found. The report may be made orally, by telephone, or in writing. The report shall include information as is known to the person making it including the name and address of the juvenile; the name and address of the juvenile’s parent, guardian, or caretaker; the age of the juvenile; the names and ages of other juveniles in the home; the present whereabouts of the juvenile if not at the home address; the nature and extent of any injury or condition resulting from abuse, neglect, or dependency; and any other information which the person making the report believes might be helpful in establishing the need for protective services or court intervention. If the report is made orally or by telephone, the person making the report shall give the person’s name, address, and telephone number. Refusal of the person making the report to give a name shall not preclude the department’s assessment of the alleged abuse, neglect, dependency, or death as a result of maltreatment.

    (b) Any person or institution who knowingly or wantonly fails to report the case of a juvenile as required by subsection (a) of this section, or who knowingly or wantonly prevents another person from making a report as required by subsection (a) of this section, is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

  26. At this point, MTV needs to sever ties with her. She is sending a dangerous message to youthful and impressionable viewers. Between the racist, homophobic rants, alcohol and drug rages, and now the very obviously broadcasted DV. It is frightening to think about this man and his rage with such small people in their home. Homeschooling Maryssa gives that child ZERO opportunity to expose her home life, and the others are too young. It is such an awful situation.

  27. Is MTV waiting for a tragedy to happen!?
    Do raitings really matter that much?

    This isn’t just two toxic adults…Innocent children are caught inbetween these two.

    One that pulls guns on people in traffic(that alone should have gotten her kicked off the show) and the other …violent, armed to the teeth, has already abused her kids and is now moving on to her!

    This video is disgusting.
    Listen to the 911 call.

    And unlike many abused women, if she reached out to MTV, they would give her the resources she needs to leave this situation.

  28. She’s missing almost all of her bottom teeth…

    I honestly feel bad for her. Don’t think I ever have before.

  29. I don’t believe a word she says. We all heard the 911 call, she sounded terrified. Her lies about what happened don’t even make sense. She fell into him and they both thought they were attacking each other? That sounds super healthy doesn’t it? Being drunk isn’t an excuse. David is a controlling, abusive, misogynistic asshole. We all know it, we all see it. Most people put their best self forward to the public, if what we see of David in the public is his best self I would hate to know what he is like behind closed doors.
    My question is, what has to happen in that household for CPS to actually step in and save those children? Does someone have to be killed first?

  30. She’s such a lying piece of garbage. Hiding in the closet so David doesn’t hear her. I had sympathy. Now? Not so much.

    1. Same here, I still hope nothing bad happens to her or the kids but she is going on the defensive about David the way Amber did with Matt before shit hit the fan. Jenelle is making it hard for anyone to feel sorry for her.
