I’m all about protecting my family, it is my lifes mission. Some people are worth killing or dying for and my family means that much to me.”

Evans, for her part, wrote that she is “heartbroken” and “distraught” over the loss of her pet. The MTV star admitted exclusively to Us that she has not spoken to Eason, whom she wed in October 2017, since he “took [Nugget] and shot her in the woods.”

“At this time, we are dealing with this rough situation. I want to focus on what’s best for me and my kids,” Evans, 27, explained. “[Divorce is] in thoughts, but nothing is finalized.”

She added that she is “too hurt and upset” to speak to her husband of nearly two years.

“It’s taking time to get over this whole situation, and it’s making me feel he’s very cruel and doesn’t have a heart on many ends,” Evans admitted.

The MTV personalty is also the mom of sons Jace, 9, and Kaiser, 4, with exes Andrew Lewis and Nathan Griffith, respectively. She assured Us that her kids were not present when Nugget was killed.
