The drama continues to build for Jenelle Evans and her seemingly troubled husband, David Eason.
As fans of the Teen Mom 2 stars know, Jenelle and David are currently in the middle of a custody battle — trying to get their kids back after the children were removed from their home. Since all of the drama has been playing out very publicly, plenty of new reports are surfacing about the couple’s problematic past, one which has apparently included plenty of police visits. According to TMZ, in just a year’s time, Evans and Eason have had 25 emergency calls to the police this year alone.
According to the report, Columbus County Emergency Services in North Carolina have fielded over 25 emergency calls to the famous couple’s home since January. That amounts to about one call every other week, which is a high number. While there were a number of issues that were discussed in these phone calls with police, the majority of them were related to welfare checks. In many of these calls, someone requested that the police check on the couple’s children.
The other calls spanned a wide range of topics, including the most recent call placed on May 15, wherein Evans told police that she and Eason had received a letter containing suspicious white powder in the mail.

#Family ???? After this stressful reunion, I’ve been put through the ringer. To trust an entire group of people for years then they turn their back on you and treat you like a puppet is beyond words. Family is everything I need to make it through my hard times and I am truly #blessed for what I have today. Didn’t take many pictures but super happy my mom was there by my side to defend everything. Please don’t ever let anyone bring you down and be strong in whatever you do. #TeenMom2 #ReunionSpecial

As fans of the MTV stars know, the couple is currently facing great scrutiny in the aftermath of Eason having reportedly shot the family’s French bulldog, Nugget. Last week, The Inquisitr shared that three of the couple’s children were removed from the home after the incident. Since then, Jenelle and David have appeared in court multiple times, in an effort to try and gain back custody of their kids.
Jenelle has updated fans on their battle, saying that “progress” has been made, though they have not yet regained custody of their children.
“There’s a lot of progress made on our behalf and [we] have to wait until our next court date as of now,” Jenelle told reporters.
Jenelle and David’s daughter, Ensley — as well as David’s daughter, Maryssa, and Jenelle’s son, Kaiser — were removed from the home. Currently, Evans’ mother, Barbara, has custody of their son, Jace. At one point, it was reported that Jenelle and David were not trying to re-gain custody of David’s daughter, but Evans has since slammed those reports.
“All children are involved in this case, not just one or the other. In the end, either the three children will come home that live with us primarily [or not]. No child was ‘dropped’ from the case at all,” she said. “Those reports are false and we are going to fight for all children to come home eventually.”
For now, the court battle rages on.
