As you've no doubt heard by now, Jenelle Evans has lost custody of her children following a shocking chain of events.
It all began when her husband, David Eason, murdered the family dog - poor little Nugget - in a fit of rage.
Earlier this week, in an exclusive statement to The Hollywood Gossip, Jenelle vowed to regain custody, but it seems her remarks need to be amended somewhat:
According to a bombshell new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Jenelle and David are now only fighting for two of the children who were taken from their home.
The couple is apparently so angry at David's 11-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Maryssa, that they've essentially decided to cut ties.
It's beyond sad and a bit surreal to watch this all unfold. Here's everything we know about the latest development in this increasingly bizarre saga:
A Strained Relationship
As those who follow them on social media are well aware, Jenelle and David often attempted to create the impression that they both enjoyed close relationships with Maryssa. We don't know if that was ever really the case - but it certainly isn't these days.
Following the CPS investigation that resulted in three children being removed from Jenelle and David's care and North Carolina property, Maryssa was placed with her maternal grandmother.
Taking the Lead
Maryssa is the eldest of Jenelle and David's kids (they have five combined), and it seems she's assumed a protective role and is doing her best to minimize the damage the couple inflicts on their other children.
When it rains, it pours. These days, the Easons' interactions with their children are limited to one-hour supervised visits - and it seems the sessions are not going smoothly.
Family Fun Time!
“Jenelle and David had a supervised visit at the visitation center with all four kids today,” a source told The Ashley, one of the most reliable sources on this ongoing saga, on Thursday.
“Jace and Ensley were there, as was Kaiser. Maryssa came but refused to see David so he left," the insider added.
