It's been nearly two weeks since former Teen Mom 2 stars Jenelle Evans and David Eason began their custody battle in court, and it looks like the final decisions have now been made regarding their children.
Jenelle Evans Loses Custody
As reported by The Ashley this afternoon, the judge ruled today that the controversial couple would not be regaining custody of their kids, which includes four-year-old Kaiser, two-year-old Ensley, and Maryssa. Jace, Jenelle's oldest son, had already been in permanent custody with Jenelle's mom Barbara Evans, a decision that was made in 2017.
Although this decision today isn't confirmed to be permanent, sources say the kids will continue to be in the care of where they're currently staying. This means Kaiser will stay with his dad, Nathan Griffith, Ensley will stay with Barb, and Maryssa will stay in the care of her grandmother, Whitney Johnson's mom.
"They judge deemed Jenelle and David’s not credible,” an insider tells The Ashley. "He also told Jenelle that she did not do her job as a mother to protect her kids."
According to the source, the couple is set to return to court next Tuesday, June 4, in order to learn what actions they must take to eventually regain custody.
The recent battle Jenelle and David are fighting all stems from the latter's decision to allegedly beat and fatally shoot his wife's french bulldog late last month. Jenelle was promptly fired from Teen Mom 2, and Child Protective Services (CPS) quickly launched an investigation on the family.

#Family ? After this stressful reunion, I’ve been put through the ringer. To trust an entire group of people for years then they turn their back on you and treat you like a puppet is beyond words. Family is everything I need to make it through my hard times and I am truly #blessed for what I have today. Didn’t take many pictures but super happy my mom was there by my side to defend everything. Please don’t ever let anyone bring you down and be strong in whatever you do. #TeenMom2 #ReunionSpecial
We're curious to see what next steps Jenelle has to take to get her kids back--but we're pretty positive leaving David is not an option for her.
