A BODY language expert has confirmed that Janelle Evans and her controversial husband are an unlikely match.
She also claims navigating the tricky marriage is like a “Rubik’s Cube” for Janelle because she can’t figure it out.
Recently, Jenelle Evans posted a string of photos on Instagram alongside her husband, David Eason.
On March 30, her pics showed the couple sitting on a boat and also out enjoying drinks.
The Teen Mom alum’s photos also showed the married couple embracing in front of romantic sunset backdrops.
Next to the post, Jenelle wrote: “A forever thing.”
One fan commented: “If toxic was a picture,” while another added: “Glad to see you smiling, but wish you could pick a good guy.”
Jenelle posted her cozy-looking pics in the run-up to her family’s Easter celebrations.
On April 10, Jenelle shared a photo of Eason, 34, and his 15-year-old daughter, Maryssa, as well as Evans’ youngest two children — son Kaiser, eight, who she shares with her ex, Nathan Griffith, and daughter Ensley, six.
The family pic also showed her son, Jace, 13, whose father is her ex, Andrew Lewis.

Jenelle had recently regained custody of Jace from her mom Barbara Evans, 70, who had been taking care of him since 2010.
In an exclusive interview, body language expert Judi James told The U.S. Sun: “Jenelle’s choices of photos on Instagram don’t seem to show any compatibility between her and her husband.
“This is an ‘opposites attract’ scenario.
“Whatever the attraction they think they have, Jenelle and David’s body language is fascinating because their poses are totally at odds.
“Her body language suggests she’s going to keep working this marriage like a Rubik’s cube.
“Jenelle wants to find a way to make the marriage function and drag it over the bumps, while keeping the optimism going.
“Her body language is amazingly resilient and fixed.
“She always seems to come back to the same core pose, using the same facial expression.
“Her signature smile is symmetric, like a fixed weatherproof smile that is performed no matter what the emotional conditions.
“Her expressions suggest a forensic sense of purpose.
“Some of the couple poses together do look cute, but others hint at turmoil and struggle.
“Then in her family photo, Jenelle’s determination to bring her husband and her family back to this sweet spot looks industrial-strength.
“This looks like a dream or goal she will never let go of.
“Jenelle looks like a woman who would pull her family through any drama or crisis single-handedly.”
Jenelle, 31, shot to fame when she starred in MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.
Since then, she has appeared on multiple seasons of the Teen Mom franchise. Jenelle was also associated with Playboy’s Morning Show.
Despite her packed TV career and more recent OnlyFans ventures, Jenelle has struggled through a string of personal issues.
Her latest marriage to David has been riddled with problems aswell.
Jenelle met the former pipe welder on Tinder in 2015. By 2016, they were expecting their first child and they married the following year.
After David reportedly killed their French Bulldog dog in 2019, Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2. The pair also lost custody of all their kids.
She and Eason split that same year, with Jenelle accusing her partner of abuse and filing for a temporary restraining order.
Despite a reconciliation in March 2020, David was then arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon.
The charges were dropped that August, with Jenelle saying she wanted to leave the relationship.
“Wherever their body language poses are as a couple, Jenelle looks desperate to drive them back to the same ideal pose,” added Judi.
“It’s always Jenelle working these poses heroically and forcing this marriage forward.
“David often looks like he’s just shown up.
“He looks so awkward or hides behind his vast beard and shades.
“His signaling look is complex, changeable, and moody where he shows only a glimmer of his teeth in a strained smile.
“Whenever Jenelle leans in towards David, it’s as though he’s her life’s trophy.
“But David’s posing energy is far lower.
“When his beard is trimmer, making it less of a barrier, his smile is also very low-effort.
“Davids’s embraces are stilted and awkward throughout.”
Before her relationship with David, Evans, 31, had welcomed Jace in 2009 with Andrew Lewis.
After they split, a rocky dating spell followed with Kieffer Delp.
Their turbulent relationship was featured on the first four seasons of Teen Mom 2 until Jenelle and Kieffer parted ways in 2012.
More than five years later, Delp was arrested for allegedly operating a meth lab.
David, on the other hand, had already been married twice before meeting Jenelle. He has two kids from former wives.
Eason has also had a few run-ins with the law. These include driving with a revoked license and an open container of alcohol in 2021.
He also faced issues in 2016 when he was arrested for violating a domestic violence protective order against him. This had been filed by his ex-wife, Olivia Leedham.
“Their rock-climbing pics look so symbolic, ” added Judi.
“He’s higher up and relaxing with a smug smile while she’s still battling to clamber up to reach him.
“In other pics where she’s on tiptoe with her much taller partner, Jenelle has that hand of possession and affection on his chest.
“She places her left hand on David’s chest in a gesture of proud ownership that also makes a display of her wedding bands.
“Her smile is symmetric again and her head is tilted while David just offers a stretched-lip mouth with a cold, small glimpse of teeth.
“Overall, this couple seems to be aiming as showing themselves as a glamorous couple in some images.

“But then there are shots of her having dropped the glam look and sitting bare-faced and tearful in their car.
“Jenelle constantly tries to drive them both back to the same pose which is the one she wants the public to see.”
