MTV fires ‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans after husband fatally shoots dog
MTV fired “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans after her husband shot and killed their French bulldog, USA Today reported.
USA Today reported MTV cut ties with the 27-year-old Evans after her husband, David Eason, 30, shot and killed her dog, Nugget, last week after he said it nipped their 2-year-old daughter in the face. Evans said last week she was considering divorce.

Nugget… I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed… you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught 😓😪💔
In an post about the incident, Eason wrote: “I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face … whether it be your dog or mine.”
Evans later said Eason took Nugget and shot her in the woods.
MTV in February 2018 fired Eason from the show after an apparent homophobic rant on Twitter.
Evans’ ex-boyfriend, Kieffer Delp, last year was sentenced to up to 3 years in state prison after he pleaded guilty to running a meth lab out of a McKees Rocks apartment. Delp was featured in early seasons of “Teen Mom 2” with Evans.
