Jenelle Evans accused her husband, David Eason, of drunkenly assaulting her and possibly breaking her collarbone last weekend. Days later, the Teen Mom 2 star claims the incident was nothing more than a “misunderstanding.” The couple also reunited on Friday night for a romantic dinner.
Nearly a week after police in North Carolina responded to “an assault” at Jenelle and David’s home, the longtime reality star is downplaying the shocking encounter.
“It was a drunk and dramatic misunderstanding,” Jenelle told E! News on October 19. “Everything is great…We are totally fine.”
“We are feeling fine,” she added. “Just taking time off social media…time to focus on ourselves and our family.”
In a 911-call last Saturday night, Jenelle, through moans and tears, told an operator she had been pinned down by her husband and stated she heard her collarbone snap. Hours later, she was hospitalized.
After the incident was first reported, Jenelle released a statement, via her rep, claiming she had simply tripped and fallen while enjoying a bonfire with friends. However, a source told E! News that the mother of three did not fall, nor did she suffer any burns.
As for why the bonfire story was released, the insider claimed Jenelle was hoping to keep the incident private. That said, after the controversial 911-call was released, she was forced to speak up again.
“My name is Jenelle Eason…and my husband, he just assaulted me,” Jenelle told the dispatcher during the call. “He pinned me down on the ground…in the yard and I think I heard my f–king collarbone crack. I can’t move my arm.”
“He’s been drinking and I think that he got violent ’cause he was drinking. I’m recovering from a surgery I got on Monday,” she continued.
Following Jenelle’s statement to E! News, David posted an image of himself, Jenelle, and Ensley out in Wilmington, where they enjoyed a dinner date on Friday night.
“We have never been happier, thanks for asking!” he wrote in the photo’s caption.
