Former Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans threatened to go to the authorities over child sex abuse allegations first highlighted on September 9 by The Grace Report, a vlog that often covers the popular MTV series.
Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2 in May 2019 after her husband, David Eason, shot and killed their dog. Since then, she has been producing and starring in her own YouTube show, I Have Something to Say, about the Child Protective Service investigation that went on last year. Her 3-year-old daughter, Ensley, and 6-year-old son, Kaiser, were temporarily removed from her care.
Evans blasted The Grace Report’s video commentary about what was included in court documents related to the CPS investigation. She was particularly upset that the vlogger claimed one court document “confirmed that Ensley was suffering from some sort of either physical or sexual abuse.”
“She is trying to basically say … that my daughter has been sexually abused by someone in our household,” the former Teen Mom 2 star said on her Instagram Story. “That has never ever come into the news. That has never been an allegation against my husband during the entire CPS case.”
Evans threatened to call police on the vlogger. “I do not appreciate it,” she said. “I will be contacting the authorities and I will be reporting every video from here on out that she wants to report about me.”
According to Evans, she and Eason were being investigated about abuse allegations related to Kaiser. “So here’s a report for you, Grace — or whatever the f*** your name is — the allegations of abuse were lies and it was physical abuse against my son — nothing to do with my daughter,” she said.
In a statement to Heavy, Eason also blasted the allegations. “That was never an allegation. Look up the court documents before you say something that makes you sound like an idiot,” he said. “And where did it say sexual abuse of Ensley?”
“Maybe you should just keep up with the YouTube series to stay up to date,” he added. “You might not want to publish info that comes from haters.”
Heavy contacted officials from the Columbus County Department of Social Services in North Carolina but did not receive a response.
Evans Addresses Her Fans in a Calmer Manner
After he earlier videos, Evans took on a softer tone when addressing her fans. Evans explained that even though there were only physical abuse allegations related to Kaiser, the same paperwork was filed for Ensley and Maryssa, Easons daughter from a previous relationship.
Even though there was allegations against us about Kaiser, the same allegations were on every single kids’ paperwork. So all the paperwork had the same allegations for every single child and that’s what Ensley’s matched Kaiser’s and matched Maryssa’s. And everyone’s paperwork matched each other. Which probably wasn’t the right process to go about in CPS anyways. That probably wasn’t the right step to take. They probably should have made it very specific based on each child. Instead, they made it all together as one, maybe because we’re all the same family. I don’t know.
What Evans’ Court Paperwork Actually Said
During the second episode of I Have Something To Say, Evans showed documentation from the CPS investigation that included the reasons Ensley had been taken from her home.
On the standardized form from Columbus County Court, two boxes were marked. The first read: “The juvenile has suffered physical injury or sexual abuse.”
The second said: “The juvenile is exposed to a substantial risk or physical injury or sexual abuse because the parent, guardian, custodian or caretaker has created conditions likely to cause injury or abuse or has failed to provide, or is unable to provide, adequate supervision or protection.”
Before The Grace Report’s video, Evans, Eason and her mother Barbara claimed they had no idea why the kids were taken away, except for saying that the kids told investigators Eason had some anger issues.
