‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans and her husband, David Eason, are at the center of yet another controversy.
This time, the couple is at odds over the shooting death of their dog Nugget.
It sounds horrific and insane – but David Eason allegedly killed the reality star’s French bulldog, Nugget, forcing Jenelle to flee the house as police were called, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.
According to reports, David Eason ‘grabbed the dog by the throat and slammed it on the ground’ before throwing the helpless animal into the kitchen table.
It all happened after the French Bulldog nipped their two-year-old daughter Ensley.
David captured the incident on camera and posted it, along with a photo of Ensley’s face. The bite did not break the child’s skin.
And instead of intervening between the animal, who is clearly uncomfortable as it cowers and pulls away from the little girl, Eason sits across the room and films the dog nip back at the girls face, causing her to cry.
He wrote: ‘Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.’

Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught ???
“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.
“He just took her and shot her in the woods… about two acres away from the house.”
After the incident, Jenelle and the kids has left the home.
“David and I are not on talking terms,” she explained to Us Weekly.
Jenelle Evans’ husband David Eason was reportedly ‘covered in blood’ following the vicious killing of their tiny family dog Nugget, according to The Blast.
“I’m too hurt and upset at the fact he did that. It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends.”
Breakup rumors and speculations have surrounded the couple since early this year.
And it appears that all came to a head this week after an incident with Nugget.
Jenelle asked for privacy as she tries to determine the best move for herself and her children:
“I would like for everyone to just give me my own time right now to figure things out and clear my head.”
This is far from the first time controversy shakes the scandalous couple
The hot-tempered brunette – who changed her Facebook relationship status to ‘separated’ on Valentine’s Day – has a two-year-old daughter Ensley Jolie with David as well as two sons Kaiser and Jace from prior relationships.
Both ‘16 and Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom 2′ made Jenelle infamous for her aggressive arguments with her mother, Barbara.
Last year, David shared a picture of Jenelle firing a gun on Twitter. David posted the picture just hours after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Needless to say, it wasn’t the ideal time for social media posts that romanticize and glorifying the type of firearms used by the murderer.
Jenelle refused to apologize for the pic, but she later joked on Twitter that it was a case of “bad timing.”
Also, a domestic violence incident between the couple sparked concerns for Jenelle and her kids.
Despite calling 911 on her husband in October 2018, Jenelle changed her tune by the time police arrived and refused to press charges.
According to TMZ, the Attorney General’s Office in North Carolina reportedly received over 130 complaints from the animal welfare office once news broke that the dog had been killed.
Sources revealed to the publication that Animal Control will be sending an officer to Jenelle’s home on Thursday to ‘confirm the dog is dead’ and verify who has ‘possession of the dog’s corpse.
