If her new boyfriend is any indication, Jenelle Evans has a type

Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans has a new man.

But if you’re not paying close attention, you might confuse him with her ex, Nathan Griffith. Her new beau, hunky as he is, seems a whole lot like her former flame.

David Eason is taking the Internet by storm after Evans posted a photo of the new couple having a night out on the town. I know what you're thinking: "She just posted some sexy pics with her ex last week, right?"

Eason, like Evans, has two children from a previous relationship, while Griffith has a child from a previous relationship, too.

But there are some huge red flags in Eason's past that mean he will probably be a bad match for Evans. People are finding out and posting evidence of a checkered past with the law, something Evans knows all too much about.

According to posts showing his records on Twitter, Eason was arrested in 2013 for driving while intoxicated, and has failed to appear in court and has probation violations to boot.

Yikes. Doesn't look like this is a match made in heaven. Hopefully this doesn't lead to more trouble for either Evans or Eason, as it appears they both have pretty volatile pasts.

Do you think Evans knew about Eason's past when she got involved with him?
