AceShowbiz - MTV doesn't waste time to find a replacement for Jenelle Evans, who was fired from "Teen Mom 2" earlier this month following her husband David Eason's dog-killing controversy. It is now reported that the show has tapped "Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant" star Jade Cline to fill the void.
According to TMZ, "Teen Mom 2" has already been filming with Jade for an upcoming season for the show. A source tells the news outlet that Jade will be announced as a new cast member in an upcoming episode of Kailyn Lowry's podcast, "Coffee Convos with Kail Lowry & Lindsie Chrisley", in New York this weekend.
The report further says that the cameras are set to be rolling and documenting the big moment. The revelation will air next week which is just in time for the "Teen Mom 2" reunion.
The 21-year-old first appeared on the spin-off series of "Teen Mom" when welcoming her first daughter Kloie Kenna Austin with her ex-boyfriend, Sean Austin. Jade and Sean broke up, but the former couple is now co-parenting their daughter together.
MTV cut ties with Jenelle on Tuesday, May 7 in a statement which read, "MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of 'Teen Mom 2' with him since. Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season."
Of her firing, the 27-year-old TV star admitted that she was "shocked," but she "saw it coming." She added, "It's shocking still but I respect their decision and have nothing but love for MTV."
Jenelle also denied that she was "crying" or "hysterical" when the news broke. "I was upset, I'm still upset," she said. Staying positive, she added, "... but this is a new chapter for me and my family. I will continue to try what's best for me and my family."
Jenelle is now focusing on getting her children back after they were taken away from her care by Children Protective Services following David's scandal. She and David were spotted holding hands after the hearing in Whiteville, North Carolina on Thursday, May 16. It was said that the battle to get their children back might be rough. Legal experts, who have not worked with Jenelle, speculated that the couple "could go years before their children are back in their care unsupervised."
