Fans were shocked when former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans was spotted out and about with her estranged husband, David Eason, last week. The two were seen out together in Nashville, Tennessee, with their 2-year-old daughter Ensley, after Jenelle reportedly dropped her request for a restraining order. Now, an anonymous source speaking to Hollywood Life explained that Evans doesn’t intend to reconcile with Eason, but is hoping to remain on good terms with him for the sake of their daughter.

“Jenelle was with David the other day because Jenelle wants to have a surface level friendship with David to make it easier on the co-parenting with their shared little one, not because they are working on getting back together,” the source revealed.

There was some skepticism when the two were seen together, given that Jenelle announced in October 2019 that she was leaving David after two years of marriage. At that time, she took her children, Ensley and son Kaiser — who she shares with ex-boyfriend Nathan Griffith — and relocated from North Carolina to Nashville, where she filed for an order of protection against her ex. According to reports, she has not yet filed divorce papers.

Jenelle herself spoke out after rumors of a reconciliation with David started swirling. Taking to Twitter, she urged her followers to not believe what the media says about her.

Despite her attempts to stay civil, the reality star is reportedly keeping a close watch on the situation, considering the past allegations surrounding her husband.

“She’s already told those close to her if he shows any sign of aggression or anger she’s taking their daughter and leaving. She won’t stand for that,” the insider explained to Hollywood Life.

The source went on to reveal that Jenelle has “come a long way” and added that the mom-of-three is “trying to remain strong for her kids.”

Over the past couple of weeks, Jenelle has apparently flourished in Nashville, focusing on herself and her children. She often takes to social media to post updates about her kids and herself. She has also been going to the gym and, most recently, she shared a YouTube video that she made with Ensley.

In the video, Jenelle allowed her daughter to do her makeup as they urged viewers to subscribe to their channel, indicating that there may be more clips coming in the future. Fans who miss seeing her on Teen Mom 2 are likely hoping that is indeed the case.
