Kailyn Lowry: It’s About Time Jenelle Evans Lost Custody of Her Kids!
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Jenelle Evans has lost custody of her children following a stunning series of events that began with David Eason shooting and killing the family dog in a fit of rage.
Across the internet, millions have commented on the situation, but Jenelle’s Teen Mom 2 co-star and friend-turned-rival Kailyn Lowry has been curiously silent — until now.
Along with her podcast co-host Lindsie Chrisley, Kail has issued the following statement to People magazine:
“We’ve been cautious when speaking on the issues regarding the Evans/Eason family until we had enough details to speak on the matter.
“The most important part of this situation & most concerning to us as fellow mothers is the safety of the children,” Lowry and Christie said.
“After hearing the state of the home & things CPS uncovered, it is in the best interest of the children to remain outside of Jenelle and David Eason’s care.
“Wishing them nothing but the best & hoping all parties involved get the help they need to move forward.”
So it’s not the epic roast that some folks may have been expecting/hoping for, but Kail and Lindsie managed to get their point across without glorying in a bad situation.
Kail previously remarked on Jenelle’s downward spiral shortly after David shot the dog and set this current mess in motion.
On that occasion, she also kept it classier than Jenelle deserved:
“I have refrained from commenting on the disturbing situation involving David Eason and Jenelle Evans while I wrapped my head around the murder of Nugget,” Lowry said at the time.
“To say I am disgusted and appalled over David’s actions doesn’t begin to touch on my true feelings.”
Normally, we’d be anticipating the inevitable clap back from Jenelle, but Evans seems to have been humbled by the events of the past few weeks.
Jenelle has been much quieter than usual on social media recently.
In fact, her sole comment on losing custody of her children came in an exclusive statement issued to The Hollywood Gossip:
“I love my kids so much and I will do anything necessary to get them back and that is all I want everyone to understand,” Evans told us.
Needless to say, she’s sounding considerably more subdued these days than in years past.
