Former ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Eason (Evans) uploaded episode 5 of her YouTube series “I Have Something to Say” this week and once again offended and infuriated her followers. In the series Jenelle is recounting the experience of having her children taken by CPS in 2019 and the court battle she and husband David Eason endured to get them back. After proudly announcing that David completed six anger management sessions, Jenelle went on to discuss their day in court with a new judge after their original judge took himself off the case.
Jenelle shares a video of herself from last year discussing her stepdaughter’s testimony. Maryssa had to go on the stand for a second time to answer questions about her life on “the land.” Maryssa expressed at the time that she was fearful and didn’t want to live with Jenelle and David. “Her story went from last time ‘David pushed down a door with his two bare hands… now it’s ‘David ripped a screen door off the front door’ — we never had a screen door. A few minutes later she goes ‘we don’t have screen doors on anything.” All the while Jenelle is making faces and seemingly mocking Maryssa and insinuating that she was making things up.
“Then she said she acts happy even when it’s a candid video that I’ve presented to the court… and she claims that she’s been scared and not wanted to live with us for the past two years and not wanted to live with us in the first place.”
Jenelle goes on to explain that the only reason Maryssa said any of these things is because she missed going to regular school. “[She said] I just want to go to normal school – I just want to go to my old school… So it’s like she’s doing all this and testifying against us and saying all these bad things just cause she wants to go to her old school.”
Jenelle received an enormous amount of backlash from fans who were outraged by the way Jenelle and David were talking about their 11 year old daughter.
When someone tweeted that Jenelle was making fun of Maryssa in the video l, she responded, “Made fun of her for lying on stand to a judge infront of 7 lawyers? Those are facts. The next video I post will explain this.. but I don’t have videos or pics of her on there. I have showed Maryssa these videos before they are posted. Keep being mad but Maryssa is just fine. 🤷🏻♀️”
Jenelle went on to explain that she was frustrated with Maryssa at that time and that there was more going on behind the scenes. “Maryssa’s relationship with me was far from perfect during that time. She was persuaded by the wrong people at the time and I’m just beginning to understand what happened in her situation.
That last video YouTube I posted was an old video from June 2019 before our case was dismissed and over with. We thought she hated us at the time but we realize that it was her being confused. Like I said.. my next and last video will explain this.”
