Teen Mom Jenelle Evans feared husband David's reaction after she filed restraining order because he was 'making knives'

TEEN Mom Jenelle Evans feared her husband David Eason's reaction after she filed a restraining order because he was "making knives."

Though Jenelle stands by the fact that he never put his hands on her, she did worry what he would do once he got served with the no-contact order she filed back in 2019.

In the third episode of Jenelle's most recent YouTube documentary called Addicted To Growth, she showed fans never-before-seen footage of the time she filed for a no-contact order from David.

At the time, the mom of three had run off to Tennessee as they bickered and fought almost every day.

In the 2019 footage, she tells her lawyers as they're on the way to file for the order: "I'm feeling good, I just don't know how he'll react but you know, I have no idea but once he gets the paperwork, he'll see he can't destroy my stuff and that's what I'm worried about really.

"And he doesn't have any money to file for divorce, file for custody, or anything like that – even if we went to court for custody, I don't know how he will hire his own lawyer."


The former MTV star added: "Before I blocked him, I just looked at his story real quick and he's out there forging knives."

She then said: "He knows something's up, he knows I'm about to do something so I think it's best if I'm not in North Carolina at all. They have the weirdest laws too."

Back in October 2019, Jenelle shocked fans when she announced she had left David, moved to Tennessee, and filed a no-contact order.

In the order, according to E! News at the time, the Teen Mom 2 alum claimed that she was fearful for the safety of herself and her children, son Kaiser – whom she shares with ex Nathan Griffith – and Ensley whom she shares with David.

Jenelle is also a mom to 11-year-old son Jace.

The documents read: "Because of his recent threats, his history of violence, his erratic behavior and his large stockpile of weapons, I am scared for my life and my children’s well-being."


Before this had happened, David had admitted to shooting their dog Nugget after it nipped Ensley on the cheek.

The couple got fired from MTV and were investigated by CPS as a result.

The order gave temporary custody to Jenelle, and "mandated that David will have no contact with Jenelle or the children and will not post about Jenelle on social media or the internet."

Jenelle, at the time, accused David of verbal and physical abuse and reportedly alleged 11 separate incidents throughout the past two years.

In the YouTube documentary, Jenelle also talked about how she feared David would show up to Tennessee and take Ensley away from her.



As she was concerned about how he had been acting since killing their dog Nugget and felt like she didn't even "know" him anymore, she wanted "space" and had to find a way to get it.

“This behavior from David, we don’t know when it will stop," she said in the Vlog. "I need to make him shut up because I’m just getting too stressed out."

The Teen Mom continued: "So, I didn’t want him contacting me, I wanted to protect my kids, as well, and wanted to make sure he didn’t pull the same thing as me and come to take Ensley away from me when I wasn’t looking."

She explained: "I wanted to do this temporarily to basically show him, like, ‘Look, let’s control ourselves. Let’s be civil. Let’s not lash out. Let’s not post anything crazy. And let’s put some distance between us for a while until we figure things out.’”


In her video from last week, explaining more about what led to needing to move away from David for a while, Jenelle complained she and her husband had been "up each other's a** since 2015."

She added: "He ruined it so bad it's like I can't even work now and I want to pursue the goals that I have and it's always holding me back because of his attitude and him not changing."

After a few months apart, Jenelle and David eventually reunited and reconciled.

Their marriage problems weren't fixed right away, and the two continued to struggle in their relationship, leading to Jenelle trying to leave again last year after a week of arguing.
