David Eason Says He’ll Never Get Married Again Following Split From Jenelle Evans; Claims the ‘Teen Mom’ Star Took His Money – The Ashley’s Reality Roundup

“Even though the ladies are lining up to be my First Mate, I’m just sayin’ no to marriage!”

David Eason will not be taking any more strolls down the aisle.

Dressed in a boating hat and sporting his now-signature Swampy Longstocking braids, the fired Teen Mom 2 dad hit TikTok Live on Saturday to discuss a variety of topics, including his take on marriage, and his money situation.

David—who has been living on his and Jenelle’s broken boat since he and Jenelle split in February—was asked if he would ever walk down the aisle again.

“I’m not going to say I’ll never date again, but I’ll never get married again!” David refused. “That’s for sure.

“There’s no reason to get married to anybody, ever,” David continued.

David stated that a legal marriage is not necessary.

“You probably won’t be saying that if you take Jenelle to the cleaners and get a bunch of alimony!”

“Not through the government, not through the paperwork,” he said. “You don’t gotta be in the system to be married. That’s not what marriage is. Marriage is not a piece of paper! I promise you that. Anyone who tells you it is is wrong!

“Don’t do it!”

“Interesting, because that’s exactly what I told Juh-nelle when she said she wanted to marry ya– don’t do it!”

David instructed his followers to “just go to the church and get married under God, for whatever kind of religion you’re in.”

David has tried—and failed—marriage twice so far. In addition to his marriage to Jenelle, David was also married to Whitney Johnson, who is the mother of his eldest daughter Maryssa. David and Whitney got hitched in October 2006 and officially divorced in September 2013. He met Jenelle in 2015 and they got married in 2017.

#NeverForget these fairytale nuptials…

As The Ashley previously told you, Jenelle filed for legal separation from David in February, but will have to live apart from him for one full year before she can file for divorce from him in North Carolina. Jenelle also filed for a protective order against David and has been battling in court with him over that filing. After having their case continued twice, the exes will meet in court face-to-face on May 16, where a judge will determine whether or not the protective order can be granted. (David told the judge at the last hearing that he is unable to afford an attorney.)

During his TikTok Live session on Saturday, David was also bombarded with people asking him why he refuses to get a job. Jenelle’s former swampy soulmate that went on TikTok to beg people for money isindeed, “work.”

“Yes I work! Everyone is always worried about me workin’!” David said. “For one thing, I’m on here workin’ right now!” he pressed. “I’m trying to make some money on TikTok before I go make money workin’! Them bills are stackin’ up, man!”

“If anyone needs me, I’ll be out by the docks workin’ by dancin’ for spare change! People generally give me a dollar to stay away from them! I’m an entrepreneur!”

In another part of the Live, David insisted that it’s Jenelle’s fault that he has no money.

“I would be making a lot more money but Jenelle took my money from me!” he said. “If y’all want to know the truth! You’re all sitting out here talking about how I’m using her money. Well, how am I getting her money?”

David went on to say Jenelle “took all his clients” from him (assumingly for his boat-cleaning ‘business’).

“She deleted everything on my phone, remotely,” David said. “It cost me a lot of money.”
