Last year, Jenelle Evans announced that she was leaving her husband, David Eason. She took the kids and moved to Tennessee to get away from him, but it wasn’t long before they reconciled their differences and got back together.
Since then, Jenelle and David have provided a united front, but these leaked text messages tell a different story. In the texts, Jenelle accuses David of being abusive, and we have to wonder what is truly happening behind closed doors.
A user on reddit shared a series of screenshots of texts from Jenelle, and it’s a lot. The messages were sent in November 2019, which was right after Jenelle publicly announced that she would be leaving her husband.
The screenshots also appeared on Katie Joy’s Instagram account, @withoutacrystalball, who is the person Jenelle was talking to in the messages.
“Jenelle Evans told me that David killed nugget because he was ‘so mad’ – which sounds a lot different than him simply putting a dog down,” Katie wrote on her Instagram post about the messages. “Swipe left & you will see her admit to him physically abusing her, leaving death threats on her voicemail & how she alleged he treated her. But now, we are suppose to believe CPS had no right to take her kids.”
She then explained that she was simply trying to help Jenelle in her time of need.
“I keep receipts 😬 this was why I was concerned when she blocked me because she told me that she had no one to talk to – I was trying to support a woman leaving an abuser,” she concluded in her caption.
The posts are a little out of order, but it appears that Katie and Jenelle started talking on November 7 about David’s ex and him being behind on child support a few weeks later.
“And u can say he is thousands behind on child support to Olivia and he’s about to go to jail,” Jenelle said on November 19. “And if u want u should reach out to Olivia about it.”
“How behind is he on child support,” Katie asked.
“$800 a month on Kaden and hasn’t paid in months,” Jenelle replied. “So add up like 4-5 months.”
Katie Joy then asked about Nugget and the infamous dog incident.
“Poor Buddy! Do you ever feel like David killed Nugget because you loved him so much?” she asked on November 21.
“No he cried and said he was sorry and understood if I was going to leave him,” Jenelle replied. “And he said that he wished he didn’t do it. And he just said ‘I was just SO mad.’ Sorry saying just too much lol multitasking right now. Kaiser is great but misses his toys and his bedroom, I left everything and didn’t go back.”
Then, on November 23 they talked about the physical abuse that was taking place.
“How many times was he physical like that?” Katie Joy asked.
