After reports emerged about the husband of ‘Teen Mom 2’ cast member, Jenelle Evans, fatally shooting their dog, a police report said that Evans and her husband faked the incident for publicity, The Hollywood Gossip reported.

Evans then gave a response in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Gossip.

“I never made a report against David in the first place,” Evans told the outlet. “The cops called me and left me a voicemail asking me to call them back about the ‘dog incident.'”

Evans was then asked about the allegations of staging her dog’s death as a PR stunt.

“I called back the chief of police because he wanted to speak with me at the beginning of May 2019,” she told the outlet. “When I called him, before I can even speak, he said to me, ‘Mrs. Eason, I need to know the truth about this situation. I have many media outlets calling me about it and I want to tell you right now if this is a publicity stunt you need to tell me because I have other cases including things like rape that I have to deal with. If you are doing it for publicity then I understand and will close the case and you can go about your business,” The Gossip reported.

When she responded to the chief, she told him that what he heard about Nugget, her dog, was true and that it wasn’t a publicity stunt.

But Evans also told the chief that she didn’t know where the dog was or what happened to it because she was inside with her kids, Ensley, Kaiser, and Maryssa, while her husband David Eason was outside with the dog.

Although she claimed to not know what happened to Nugget, her Instagram post isn’t clear on that either.

“Nugget… I’m crying everyday … 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,” Evans wrote in her caption.

Her Story Changed

Columbus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) told TMZ that Evans told the deputies she heard a gunshot even though she had never seen it herself, TMZ reported.

They added that she changed the story when she went back to the investigators for another interview.

The police claim they didn’t find any evidence that would suggest an animal had been killed.

CCSO told TMZ they would close the case and the investigation and move on. No charges will be filed for killing a dog.

How it Began

On April 30, E!News reported that David Eason, Evans’s husband, allegedly killed Nugget, their French bulldog.

A source told E!News that Eason did it because the dog had bitten their daughter Enley Eason.

The 911 call was then made by an unidentified male who allegedly told the CCSO what supposedly happened.

“It was relayed that the woman’s husband had killed her dog,” the CCSO said, E!News reported.

Then on May 1, Eason made a post on Instagram about the reported incident. The post has since been deleted.

“I dont give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face … whether it be your dog or mine, a dog is a dog and I dont put up with that [expletive] at all. I’m all about protecting my family, it is my life’s mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me. You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME,” Eason wrote in his post.
