Jenelle Evans's Boyfriend Has an Even Shadier Past Than We Thought

Oh man. We knew David Eason had a checkered past, but this one might top the cake! Apparently, Jenelle Evans's boyfriend has a secret ex-wife -- and they were married for seven whole years.

David Eason's daughter Maryssa has been featured on the show this season, but Radar Online recently learned that he was actually married to her mom. According to the New Hanover County Clerk of Superior Court, Eason and Whitney Johnson were married on October 21, 2006, in North Carolina.

Seven years later, he filed for divorce from his baby mama on July 23, 2013, and it was finalized on September 9, 2013. 

April Eason McKeithan, David's sister, confirmed the marriage to Radar, and even got into why things ended up falling apart. "They were married, she was a big part of the family," McKeithan admitted. "They grew up together and were very young when they had Maryssa."

Since David's son's mom, Olivia Leedham, has a restraining order against him for domestic violence, it doesn't look like physical abuse was a factor in the divorce. McKeithan said they "just [had] differences," and that Johnson has "maintained a friendship" with the family.

That's quite the news, and we can't help but wonder if Jenelle knew her man was married before. Hopefully it wasn't a bombshell to her ... poor girl has enough on her plate without adding ex-wife baggage to the mix.
