David Eason Accused of Assaulting Jenelle Evans, May Lose Custody of Son

by at .

Last month, David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 after unleashing a homophobic tirade on social media.

Even those who were addicted to the drama of the Easons volatile marriage applauded MTV for the move.

And now it seems that the fallout from David's abhorrent behavior is only just beginning.

According to Radar Online, David's baby mama Olivia Leedham has launched a custody battle against her ex with the goal of obtaining sole custody of her son, Kaden.

Leedham was awarded sole physical custody of Kaden back in 2014, but she recently agreed to grant visitation rights to David, believing that her troubled ex had turned his life around since marrying Jenelle.

“Defendant and Ms. Evans appeared to be stable in both their own lives and in their relationship,” court documents filed by Leedham stated.

She added that Eason and Evans “appeared to be more focused on their children,” and “the ’drama’ that surrounded their early relationship appears to have subsided and they appear to be happy and to have a happy home."

Leedham quickly regretted that decision, however, and last week she petitioned the court to once again have Eason stripped of all parental rights.

"[David] is exhibiting erratic and concerning behavior,” Leedham asserts in her latest filing.

She goes on to accuse Kaden's father of “potential substance abuse issues” and creating “marital strife” with Jenelle.

Leedham also cites Eason's “recent firing from his employment” as a cause of increased instability in his life.

In the most shocking portion of the filing, Leedham contends that Eason and Evans' relationship is an unhealthy and often violent one, which makes for an unsafe living situation for children:

“The Defendant is exhibiting erratic and concerning behavior and his life appears to have again deteriorated into chaos,” Leedham's attorneys write.

Obviously, custody battles are nothing new for Jenelle, but it seems unlikely that she'll be able to help her husband with his latest legal conflict.

Not only is she still fighting to maintain custody of her two children from previous relationships, she's being painted as one of David's many victims in the filing:

"Despite knowing that he is being filmed for a nationally televised reality show [David] has regularly been seen arguing with Ms. Evans on the show,” Olivia writes.

“[David] has allegedly become increasingly controlling of Ms. Evans and has alienated her from her family.”

Obviously, the claim that David is manipulating Jenelle will serve to undermine any statement that she makes in her husband's defense.

Not that Jenelle tends to not have a whole lot of credibility with judges anyway.

From the sound of it, Leedham will have little trouble convincing a judge that the Easons have failed to provide a safe and stable environment for her son.

And thanks to David's time on the show, she'll have many hours of evidence to present to the court.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online to be reminded of just how out of control David truly is.
