Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer may or may not be dating.
Yes, there are actual rumors than these Teen Mom co-stars are a romantic pairing at the moment.
But while that chatter seems a little far-fetched, the following we know to be true:
Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer are absolutely aghast and appalled over what is going on with David Eason and Jenelle Evans.
Granted, there's always drama between this married couple -- but the events of the past few days take the heinous and disgusting cake, that's for certain.
In case you've somehow missed it, Eason shot and killed the family dog, Nugget, this past Saturday....after first beating the canine bloody with his bare hands.
The polarizing former MTV personality confessed himself to this dastardly deed, saying on Instagram that Nugget snapped at his young daughter and he would do anything to protect his family and he has no regrets.
The story is as shocking as we're making it sound and you can familiarize yourself with a few details below:
According to Hollywood Life, Lowry and Messer barely even know how to react to this development.
Considering the literal blood on Eason's hands, however, as well as Jenelle's refusal to leave her husband (she claims she's pondering a divorce, but does anyone believe her), Kailyn and Leah would love for MTV to stop associating with this dangerous couple.
“The other stars of Teen Mom, especially Kailyn and Leah, are horrified by what happened to Nugget,” an insider claims, adding to the aforementioned website:
“They’re all embarrassed and saddened that this tragedy is even being associated with their beloved franchise.
"The cast collectively wishes Jenelle left the show when David did last year, she is not popular with anyone on the show.”
Eason was fired by producers over a year ago due to the many homophobic remarks he made on social media.
This has been a point of contention in his relationship with Evans because cameras won't film her any time Eason is around, making it difficult for her to get as much air time as before.
Viewers are reportedly clamoring for Evans to also be fired at this point -- and Messer and Lowry appear glad to show her the door.
“As long as [Jenelle] is still around, [the] cast fears David could resurface,” Hollywood Life writes, expounding as follows:
“They’ve been fearful for a while now that he will show up as they feel like he’s a loose canon and they don’t know what to expect from him.
"After this latest ugly event, they’ve all made it very clear that they don’t want anything to do with David ever, period.”
Eason and Lowry have gone back and forth for months, of course.
Most recently, David trashed Kailyn as fat and she clapped back in epic fashion.
So there's a history here, absolutely.
But one doesn't need to have a troubling past with Eason to think he's a violent maniac who should not be anywhere near a television screen, even just by association.
“I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face... whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that sh-t at all,” he wrote in a post defending his actions this week.
“i'm all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me."
This would come across as less psychotic if Eason had been reacting to an emergent situation because Nugget was in the process of attacking little Ensley.
However, Eason's own video makes it clear no such thing happened -- and there's no reason why he couldn't have simply decided to give the dog away to a shelter if he felt it was a danger to his child.
You can hate me all you want but this isnt the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively,” Eason added.
“The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME.
Eason is currently under criminal investigation for animal cruelty after officers visited his home on Thursday, yet didn't feel safe walking on to a property with "No Trespassing signs" and a pit bull out front.
They have asked the Sheriff's Department to figure out the next move.
Elsewhere, TMZ reports that Eason is also behind on child support payments to ex-girlfriend Olivia Leedham and that he could end up in jail as a result of this financial failure.
What a downright shame that would be, right?
