In May, her husband David Eason shot and killed her French bulldog, Nugget. Jenelle confirmed that David shot the dog for snapping at her youngest child.
“David killed my dog Nugget because he snapped at my 2-year-old, Ensley. He doesn’t put up with that and those are his beliefs,” Jenelle told Us Weekly.
Jenelle decided to leave the home with her children after the incident. Soon after, MTV fired her from Teen Mom 2, and Child Protective Services removed her sons from her house.
But that wasn’t the first time that Jenelle and David have been at the center of controversy. Last July, Jenelle allegedly pulled a gun on a man while her son was in the car. Prior to that, David was fired from Teen Mom 2 for tweeting homophobic comments.
Now Jenelle has officially lost custody rights over her three children: Jace, 9; Kaiser, 4; and Ensley, 2. This is a “temporary decision.”
A representative for Jenelle told Entertainment Tonight that she is fully cooperating with the court.
“At this time we are cooperating with the judge and legal team from the court,” the rep said. “We will continue to cooperate with the court and their decisions.”
The children are now with Jenelle’s mother Barbara, Entertainment Tonight reports.
