In October, “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans made a frantic call to 911 alleging that her husband, David Eason, assaulted her after a night of drinking.
As Dearly reported, Evans told police that she heard her collarbone “crack” during the confrontation, which sent her to the hospital.
She said on the call:
“He’s been drinking, and I think that he got violent because he’s been drinking.”
The mother of three did not file a police report against her husband. And now, she says the whole thing was just a “misunderstanding.”
On Monday’s episode of “Teen Mom 2,” Evans explained to her mother that she was also intoxicated during the disagreement, People reports.
The reality star said that the fight occurred after they had a bonfire at their house and that Eason took off with some friends. She was angry when he didn’t answer his phone, she explained:
“So when I called him, he wouldn’t answer the phone and I was pissed off and we were drinking. All the kids were sleeping in their rooms and it was like 11:30 at night. When David pulled in the driveway, I came outside, yelling, screaming and cussing at him because I was pissed off he wouldn’t answer his phone.”
Evans said she walked toward her husband to confront him and fell in a hole. She claims he also fell when trying to catch her. Evans told her mom:
“So we both fell and when we fell, he fell on top of me. So when we got back up I was crying, I was screaming, I was mad. I was like, ‘You put me down on purpose.’ He’s like, ‘No, I didn’t.'”
The 27-year-old said she only called the cops because she was “pissed off.” She concluded:
“It was just a misunderstanding.”
Evans denies any abuse, but fans grew concerned after the reality star tried to disprove any wrongdoing on Eason’s behalf.
Many on Twitter claimed she was trying to explain away possible abuse. Some wrote:
That fake laugh Janelle gave when discussing the reason behind David’s behavior, I could clearly tell she’s a victim of domestic abuse #teenmom2 Janelle blink twice if you need help 😩

However, this isn’t the first time the reality star has backtracked her 911 call.
Shortly after news of the 911 call broke in October, Evans posted a YouTube video in defense of her husband. She said at the time:
“I know everyone’s concerned about me, and I know everyone wants to know, ‘Is she OK? How are the kids? Blah blah blah.’ Everything’s fine.”
