Hours after he was seen expressing concerns for the safety of Kaiser, the ex-boyfriend of Jenelle Evans, the child’s mother, shared three graphic and disturbing photos of Kaiser’s behind, where a number of bruises and other markings were visible.
“Cut the truth! No one, no magazine and no sponsor want to publish this because of guidelines. Bruise? Or bruises? Water slide right? My son told me that he got hit by a stick,” Nathan tweeted. “Recently, David broke his cell phone with a hammer?”
Nathan’s tweet quickly got the attention of many, including his co-star Kailyn Lowry, who re-tweeted the post, and 16 & Pregnant cast member Nikkole Paulun, who shared her reaction to the photos with her own Twitter audience.
“Omg. This is so sad. That guy is a monster,” Nikkole wrote, seemingly about David Eason.

In another tweet, Nathan called out MTV for failing to intervene.
“[MTV] please stop playing an innocent bystander,” he begged. “Editing is hell. This is my son. My pride and joy. Tons of unedited pill bottles, alcohol bottle, neglect, and indecent conversations are film around children. It shows nothing but greed. People love resolutions and a happy ending.”

During Monday night’s episode, Nathan spoke to a producer about Kaiser’s allegations against his step-father.
“[Kaiser] said, ‘David hit me with a stick,’” he claimed. “Sunday comes around, it’s about time for drop off. I tell Jenelle’s husband we’re not giving Kaiser back. I’m afraid for his welfare. I feel like he’s in danger. They were cussing and yelling through text messages. I don’t want David anywhere around him. I don’t feel safe with my son around him. He had a violent criminal record.”
In response to Nathan’s allegations, Jenelle told her mom he should have asked questions before making assumptions and reporting them to the authorities.
“Instead of texting my husband saying, ‘Hey, did you hit him? Where did this bruise come from?’ He said, ‘There is a bruise on Kaiser’s butt and we reported it to the cops,’” she explained. “That must have been from the slip-and-slide Kaiser had at his school. Everything has been dropped and closed.”
Jenelle went on to defend her husband and insisted he is “not a bad guy.”
“Nathan is trying to do everything in his power to sabotage my husband,” she added. “It pisses me off the way everyone thinks about David. Cause he doesn’t do anything wrong and he does everything in his power to make our family happy.”
In July of last year, after Nathan refused to return Kaiser to his mother, a CPS investigation was launched against Jenelle and David but ultimately, the couple was cleared of all abuse claims and Kaiser was returned to them.
