It's been a wild ride for fans of the Teen Mom 2 series watching Jenelle Evans go through new relationships, bad breakups, and fights with her mom Barbara. But the craziest development in her life in the spotlight has to be her marriage to David Eason. Most recently, the controversial figure shot and killed Jenelle's french bulldog—a tragedy which led to her being fired from the MTV show.

And now, the couple is embroiled in a custody battle for their kids, after Child Protective Services (CPS) began an investigation on them. Jenelle and David reported to their court hearing yesterday, and although the case is still ongoing without any disclosed conclusions yet, there have been a few interesting details which have been reported.

According to The Ashley, both parties had to share in court how much money they make, with David confirming he is unemployed. "Jenelle Eason testified that she earned over $400,000 in 2018 as a participant on a reality TV program," the court papers state, per RadarOnline. As for David, he reportedly earned at least $60,000 per year during 2017 and 2018 before he was fired from Teen Mom 2.

So why didn't David get a job after he was fired from MTV? Apparently, court documents reveal he claimed that he has to be home to homeschool his daughter Maryssa, and that his skin condition vitiligo will not allow him to be outside in the sun. And RadarOnline reports that the judge wasn't buying it.

"The court does not find the defendant’s testimony credible that his vitiligo prevents him from any gainful or meaningful employment that would allow him to earn sums of money and has the ability to earn sums of money through employment," the reported court documents stated.

We'll be waiting patiently to see how the custody battle turns out, but regardless of the outcome, David should probably get a job.
