Jenelle Evans, who rose to fame on MTV’s “Teen Mom 2,” is working to make a name for herself without the show, according to E! News.

The now 28-year-old is enjoying making a fresh start for herself and her two children in Nashville, Tennesee (her first son, Jace, remains in custody with her mother Barbara).

Evans was known during her early years on the show for getting into consistent trouble with the law. She gave custody of her 10-year old son to her mother many years ago, and she now has two other children: 5-year-old Kaiser with her ex Nathan Griffith, and 2-year-old Ensley with her most recent partner, David Eason.

Evans has been split from Eason for four months now, and she left their home together in North Carolina to move to Nashville. In October she wrote on Instagram, “The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I've filed papers to start that process."

In the past Evans had filed a restraining order against Eason, stating that he was both verbally and physically abusive toward her. She later dropped the restraining order but assures the public that her relationship with Eason is strictly for her daughter's benefit. Eason has been the prime cause of most of Evans’ drama in the past few years. After he shot and killed their dog, Nugget, in last May, claiming the French bulldog was “aggressive,” Evans was fired from “Teen Mom 2.”

"She is looking out for her own welfare and the welfare of her children," said an insider. "She has had a lot of relationships and she really wanted to make this one work and did everything she could, but David really just dragged her through the mud. Some people just cannot be helped."

Evans was adamant about not wanting to speak out on her relationship, and only recently returned to social media after formerly stating she would take a break, according to PopCulture.

“Finally breaking my silence on what's going on with David [and] I,” she said on her Instagram Story along with a link to Us Weekly's story with Jenelle's latest statements on the issue.

“David and I are not together as of now. We are coparenting and deciding what to do about our futures because we own a house together. We cannot sell the house until we get repairs from the housing company who built it,” Evans told the outlet.

“Teen Mom 2” first aired on MTV in 2011 documenting the lives and struggles of four adolescent mothers.
