Jenelle Evans and David Eason Attend Custody Hearing to Get Kids Back From CPS, Find Out What Happened In Court

Jenelle Evans and David Eason attended a custody hearing on Thursday in hopes of getting several of their children back in their care. Were they successful?

According to a new report, the former Teen Mom 2 cast members spent much of the day yesterday fighting for their kids, including 11-year-old Maryssa, four-year-old Kaiser, and two-year-old Ensley, all of whom have been kept with family members since David killed their dog.

On May 15, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup revealed details about the hearing and confirmed that the couple was unsuccessful, and the case has been continued through today.

“The court is handling each kid’s case, one at a time,” a source said. “This will take a long time and there’s a good chance that nothing will actually be decided today.”

Although TMZ reported two small children with blankets over their heads were seen in a car belonging to Child Protective Services (CPS) at the courthouse, The Ashley revealed they were not being taken away. Instead, the two children, who were believed to be Kaiser and Ensley, were kept in the car and entertained during the hearing.

As expected, Jenelle’s mother, Barbara Evans, who has custody of Jace, Nathan Griffith, who shares custody of Kaiser, and Whitney Johnson, the mother of David’s daughter Maryssa, were all in attendance during Thursday’s court meeting.

During the hearing, the assigned caseworker for Jenelle and David’s children reported her findings, many of which were described by The Ashley as “disturbing.” That said, Jenelle has been informed that CPS will allow her to regain custody of her children if she agrees to move out of the home she and David share, or if he was to vacate the home, as the investigation into the death of their dog continues.

“Jenelle would have to move out of the home she shares with David, or David would have to leave in order for Jenelle to have the kids returned to her care,” the outlet said.

After the hearing concluded, Jenelle and David were seen leaving the courtroom without their children.

“David looked angry and was throwing his hands around as he talked to Jenelle on the way to their car,” the source shared.

Jenelle and David’s kids are expected to remain with their temporary caregivers until a final decision about custody is reached.
