Jenelle Evans and David Eason were back in court today for day five of their lengthy custody hearing.
And we're guessing the controversial couple is less than pleased with the judge's final decision.
The Ashley's Reality Roundup was the first to report moments ago that Jenelle and David will not be regaining custody of their children anytime soon.
A source tells The Ashley that the children will remain in the care of their current guardians for the foreseeable future and will not be returned to the property the Easons have dubbed "The Land."
While it's the decision that the majority of Teen Mom 2 viewers seemed to be rooting for, it's still somewhat surprising, as family courts are generally very reluctant to deny custody rights to birth mothers.
Here's a look at how it all transpired and what might happen next:
The Terrible Twosome
As seasoned Teen Mom 2 viewers are well aware, Jenelle Evans and David Easons have been flouting the law and openly mistreating their children for years. Now, it seems their questionable behavior has finally caught up with them, and then some.
After an unusually lengthy custody hearing (these matters are generally decided within hours, not multiple weeks), a judge ruled this afternoon that Jenelle and David have failed to provide a safe and healthy environment for the three children who were in their care on The Land, their North Carolina property.
As a result, 2-year-old Ensley will remain with her grandmother, Barbara Evans (as will Jenelle's son Jace, who lives with her already); 4-year-old Kaiser will continue to reside with his father, Nathan Griffith; and 11-year-old Maryssa, David's daughter from a previous relationship, will stay with her maternal grandmother.
The Easons sure are incredible, but not in the positive sense of the word. “The judge deemed Jenelle and David not credible,” a source tells The Ashley.
Stating the Obvious
“He also told Jenelle that she did not do her job as a mother to protect her kids," the Ashley's insider adds ... as Teen Mom Nation collectively nods, because obviously.
While those who have been observing the Carolina Hurricane's wild behavior over the years may have easily predicted this outcome, Jenelle reportedly never saw it coming. Self-awareness is not her strong suit.
