AceShowbiz - Jenelle Evans' husband David Eason recently found himself in the center of controversy after he reportedly assaulted "Teen Mom 2" producers during season 9 filming. The former "Teen Mom 2" star was seen heckling the MTV camera crew before shouting at them from his car.
He shared the debacle on his Instagram Live video, in which he said in a mocking tone, "When MTV used to film me." As the crew, who filmed the soccer game of Jenelle's son Jace, the 30-year-old went on saying, "Oh? You didn't think I was gonna be here? Oh -- MTV didn't think I was gonna be here. Why they mad?"
Not stopping there, David also called out MTV's head honcho Larry Musnik. "Hey Larry!" he shouted. "I love you man. No one hates you."

Despite the debacle, Jenelle appears to defend her husband, saying that it was nothing but a joke, "The crew knows David was playing around," the 26-year-old reality TV star explains to HollywoodLife.com.
"My security guard, Andre, came up and asked David how he was doing and 'hopes to see him soon.' My director even spoke to David as well and said, 'Hey,' really quick after packing up," the mother of three adds.
"The crew knew David was on his way because I told them," the North Carolina native continues sharing. "They knew David was coming to watch Jace's soccer game, like he usually does every Saturday. It's not a big deal and everyone's making it seem that way."
David was fired from "Teen Mom 2" after homophobic controversy surrounding him back in February. David sparked rages by posting a photo of Jenelle holding a gun shortly after 17 people died in a school shooting. Only to making it worse, he doubled down the scandal by responding the criticism with an anti-LBGT rant.
MTV then decided to distance themselves from him and fire David following the scandal. "David Eason's personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV," the network previously said in a statement. "With six weeks left of production on 'Teen Mom 2', effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him."
