Teen Mom Jenelle Evans claims husband David Eason killed family dog Nugget because 'that's what they do in the country'
TEEN Mom 2 alum Jenelle Evans claimed her husband David Eason killed their family dog Nugget because "that's what they do in the country."
The 29-year-old opened up about the incident while appearing on Candace on Tuesday.
Back in 2019, Jenelle and David were famously fired from Teen Mom 2 after the 33-year-old killed their family dog.
After host Candace Owens asked Jenelle about the incident, the former MTV star recalled: "So basically, it was me, my daughter and my other two kids and David and we were all sitting in the living room and you know, my daughter and the dog were having like a cute little moment.
"So David started filming from far away and then all of a sudden she went to go give the dog a hug and the dog like bit her on the face, almost in the eye."
Jenelle continued: "Then, after that happened, you know, the way David was raised, he took the dog outside and took care of it himself.
"My kids were inside the house at the time…[They] did not see anything, did not hear anything.
"David didn't announce what he was doing or anything."
Candace then asked Jenelle what she meant by saying David was "raised" that way, with the former Teen Mom 2 star explaining: "He's very country.
"I was raised in Pennsylvania, and then he was born and raised in the South.
"So like if a dog was aggressive, they would put it down themselves.
"And David said, you know, if I took the dog to the humane society, they probably would've done the same thing because of the aggression."
Later in the conversation, Jenelle revealed that David has thought a lot about the incident and has "apologized so much."
Jenelle and David share four-year-old daughter Ensley together, while the former reality star is also the mother to 11-year-old son Jace and six-year-old son Kaiser.
While Jenelle said she initially wanting to keep the particular incident private, it soon became public knowledge and eventually led to the couple being fired from Teen Mom 2.
After they were let go from the show, the controversial pair claimed in a YouTube video that Teen Mom's production team were afraid to work with David and would ask not to go to their house.
In response to the claim, an MTV spokesperson: "MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since.
“Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season."
