If you've been keeping up with Jenelle Evans' life as of late, you'll know that things have been a little bit more than dramatic for the reality star. In April, her controversial husband, David Eason, admitted to shooting and killing her dog, Nugget, for allegedly nipping at their two-year-old daughter. Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2 soon after, and the couple's children were removed from their home.
Things have begun looking up for the couple, however, as they regained custody of the kids earlier this month. And now, apparently Jenelle is trying to cover up that the alleged dog murder even happened in the first place. Yes, we're serious. The Ashley is reporting that the mom-of-three is claiming she lied about the incident for publicity.

Nugget... I’m crying everyday. I love you so much and I’m so sorry. I’m speechless. You were my side kick and knew the moment I felt bad and would cuddle with me. You still had a lot to learn and a lot to grow from your lessons. Everyday I wake up you’re not here, when I come home you’re not here, when I go to bed... you’re not here. You’re gone forever and there’s no coming back. #Heartbroken #Distraught ???
A statement from the Columbus County Sheriff's Office, per WECT News 6, explains why neither Jenelle nor David will face charges.
"Jenelle stated that the reason she filed the animal cruelty report was for the publicity and because she did not know where her dog was," the release states. "The evidence collected indicates that the allegations of animal cruelty were fabricated. Therefore, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office is closing this investigation. No charges will be filed in this case."
Fans will remember that David himself admitted to killing Nugget, defending his actions in a since-deleted Instagram post. "You can hate me all you want but this isn[']t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively," David wrote in the caption. "The only person that can judge weather [sic] or not a[n] animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME."
This is too wild. We're going to need Jenelle to confirm or deny this story ASAP.
