Did Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle and David Break Up?
While fans got to watch the couple’s relationship unfold on MTV, David was fired from the show after a string of homophobic messages posted via Twitter in 2018. The chaos continued after Jenelle accused her husband of breaking her collarbone during a tear-filled 911 call in October 2018.
“My name is Jenelle Eason … and my husband, he just assaulted me,” she can be heard telling the dispatcher in a clip released by TMZ. “He pinned me down on the ground … in the yard and I think I heard my f–king collarbone crack. I can’t move my arm,” she said, adding that David had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.
Days after the ordeal, Jenelle told E! News that the whole thing was a “drunk and dramatic misunderstanding.”
“Everything is great…We are totally fine,” she said at the time. “We are feeling fine, just taking time off social media … to focus on ourselves and our family.”
Jenelle was let go from the long-running reality series in May 2019 and confirmed the couple’s split in October of that year.
“The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process,” she announced at the time. However, just five months later the pair decided to give their marriage another shot.

“I don’t want to explain but just know that my birthday was ruined because of a narcissistic a–hole,” Jenelle wrote via Instagram Story on December 19. “My kids and Maryssa are the best, and I couldn’t have asked for better kids.”

“Happ birthday to the love of my life [sic],” he wrote alongside a photo of the pair. “You are the most amazing person in the whole world, please don’t ever change babe!”
“Me and David, we haven’t been getting along lately. It’s been on and off,” she told former costar Briana DeJesus. “Everyone knows he doesn’t have a job. It’s like, I’m sitting here providing for everyone, for years, and it’s still the same!”
She went on to add that she was “giving him a cold shoulder,” and that they had been communicating via text rather than talking in person.
