In the days before he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a friend of Jenelle Evans, her ex-husband David Eason was rushed to the hospital in intense pain. According to Celebernation, Evans drove Eason to the emergency room after he work up in agonizing pain, although they were not clear what the problem was.
It was later determined that he had a fluid-filled cyst behind his knee that was potentially causing the issue.
Evans said that he would need to undergo and ultrasound and possible aspiration to relieve the issue.
On top of the stress of not knowing what the problem with Eason was, Evans admitted she was also very concerned about going into the hospital amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I was so scared he had to go inside of the hospital because of Covid-19, sitting there hoping he wasn’t exposed to it,” she told Celebernation.
Just days after his health scare, Eason was arrested on June 12 for allegedly assaulting Evans’ friend James Spivey with a pistol.
TMZ obtained a copy of the arrest warrant in the case, and apparently Eason got into some kind of altercation with some of Evans friends, including Spivey, while she was not home. She returned to the house to get some personal belongs, and the fight escalated. Eason then allegedly hit Spivey with his gun.
Eason was released from jail on bond, but will be back in court on July 6.
Evans broke the news on Facebook shortly after Eason’s arrest that she would be leaving him for now to insure the safety of her kids.
Evans shares 3-year-old daughter Ensley with Eason and is also mother to sons Jace, 10, with ex Andrew Lewis, and Kaiser, 5, with ex Nathan Griffit
“I’m going to take a few days out to myself to gather my thoughts and focus on what’s going on so I won’t be on social media much. I love you all for the support that you all have shown me and I’ll be stronger and better than ever soon!” she wrote in her Facebook post.
Evans and Eason have had an on-and-off relationship over the past couple years. The two were back together when Eason was taken to the hospital, but now Evans says she is ready to “move on” from the relationship to “find happiness.”
She left Eason last October, but then this past March she announced that she was giving him another chance.
“A lot of things have changed,” she said at the time. “Me and him have decided to just try to remain positive no matter what and if we have an issue, we try to talk it out.”
