New Details David Eason Child Abuse Allegations Jenelle Evans Nathan Griffith Son Kaiser

Jenelle Evans' ex-fiance and baby daddy has accused her husband of abusing their 4-year-old son in 2018. The alleged abuse was previously reported in July 2018 but addressed in detail on the season 9 premiere Teen Mom 2, which aired January 14, 2018. Nathan Griffith backed up his child abuse allegations against Evans' husband, David Eason, with graphic photos of bruises on his son, Kaiser's behind.

Griffith claims Kaiser said Eason hit him on his rear end with a stick, which Jenelle brushed off as injuries from a Slip' N' Slide at school that day. 

"Cut the truth! No one, no magazine and no sponsor wants to publish this because of guidelines," Griffith tweeted Tuesday, along with photos of the boy's bum, which appears to have multiple bruises. "Bruise? Or bruises? Water slide right? My son told me that he got hit by a stick. Recently, David broke his cell phone with a hammer? ‘Kaiser said.'"

The frustrated father proved he is not backing down and said he does not want Eason anywhere near his son. He addressed the following tweet to MTV.

"Please stop playing an innocent bystander," he tweeted at the network. "Editing is hell. This is my son. My pride and joy. Tons of unedited pill bottles, alcohol bottles, neglect, and indecent conversations are filmed around children. It shows nothing but greed. People love resolutions and a happy ending."

Griffith's girlfriend, Ashley Lanhardt, also took to Twitter to speak out against Eason and support her boyfriend's claims.

“Y would a 4YO lie and say 'David hit me with a stick.' Then go outside and pick up a stick that looked like the one he was hit with,” she tweeted. “He was not coached. We had no idea that was the extent. I yelled for Nathan, Nate said 'what happen to your butt buddy?' Kaiser has his response.”

During the premiere, Evans denied the allegations against Eason, saying her ex has ulterior motives.“Nathan is trying to do anything in his power to try to sabotage my husband,” she told her mom in the episode, adding that her husband is "not a bad guy."

Griffith also revealed he and Evans are going to court over custody of their son, whom they share custody of. According to court documents, he filed for full custody of Kaiser in July after the alleged incident occurred. This isn't the first time Eason has been accused of physical abuse. 

Evans previously accused Eason of assaulting her following a 911 call about the abuse she was suffering.

“My husband, he just assaulted me,” the Teen Mom 2 star told the operator, according to audio obtained by Radar Online. “He pinned me down on the ground in the yard, and I think I heard my f–king collarbone crack and I can’t move my arms.”

Evans later denied having been abused by her husband in a video on YouTube titled "Confessional: Domestic Violence."

“I know everyone’s concerned about me, and I know everyone wants to know, ‘Is she okay? How are the kids? Blah blah blah,'” Evans explained. “Everything’s fine. You know, I’ve been in so many domestic violence situations in the past that I would not put up with it now. So I don’t know why you guys would think that I would continue to stay in this relationship if I was being abused."

She told E! News that the 911 call was a "drunk and dramatic misunderstanding." No incident report was taken. At the Teen Mom 2 reunion in August, Evans' mother, Barbara Evans, expressed fear for her and her daughter's safety around Eason, claiming she is afraid he may kill her.

More recently, Eason threatened to shoot a real estate agent who pulled up outside of his house last week to admire it, TMZ reported Wednesday.

While she was taking a look at a new black gate on Eason's property, Sandra Britt claims he drove at her on an ATV and yelled, "What the mother f*** are you looking at my house for?"

Then, he put his hand on a firearm attached to his hip. 

"That's right. I got a gun, I will shoot you," Eason said, according to Britt.

She quickly drove away and tried to report the incident to police, but was told nothing could be done because the incident took place on a public highway. She plans to file a report with the local sheriff's department.

Now, Evans is divorcing Eason after two years of marriage. She took to Instagram to tell her tale.  She wrote: “I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions. I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty but it’s been my life. Like anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy. With the time I took away from Teen mom I’ve started looking at my life differently and I know I need to make changes. I’m starting now.”

She also shared that she and the kids have moved out of the house and away from David.

Eason has not handled the split well. He called her "stupid" for leaving him. Of course, this is the same man who shot and killed Evans' dog in May, so take what he says worth a grain of that proverbial salt.
