I guess Jace's dad doesn't really want to see him after all. Last summer, Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans' baby daddy Andrew Lewis made quite a stink that Jenelle and her mom Barbara (who has custody of Jace) weren't letting him see his son. You know, the one he's never had anything to do with.
Anyway, I guess he was just making noise, because now Jenelle is claiming that Jace's dad wants nothing to do with him.
Jenelle took to Twitter on Monday to air her grievances against Andrew and his lack of involvement in their son's life.
I hate trying to have a convo with Jace's father... ðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ so hard not to get all mad at him.— Jenelle Evans (@PBandJenelley_1) March 17, 2014
God I feel so bad for Jace. ðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ his dad really wants nothing to do with him. I never knew a father can actually have the balls to say this.— Jenelle Evans (@PBandJenelley_1) March 17, 2014
OK, on the one hand, it's easy to just feel awful for Jace about not having his dad in his life, but this might actually be for the best. This is the guy that didn't think using heroin was that big of a deal, admitted to hitting Jenelle during their relationship, and just last summer called the mother of his child "dumber than a f---ing brick."

It sucks. It really, really sucks. But at least now they can be honest with Jace instead of trying to make nicey-nice and then having to deal with disappointment after disappointment as Andrew inevitably fails to deliver.
Kids are more resilient than we give them credit for, and Lord knows Jace has had more than his fair share to bounce back from in his short little life.
But now his mom seems like she's really getting her act together. She hasn't been arrested for hard drugs in almost a year. She's with a guy that loves and defends her (even if they do fight like banshees sometimes) and seems to love being a stepdad. She's pregnant with his little brother Kai.
Things may finally be settling down and looking up for Jace. The last thing he needs is cray cray Andrew in his life.
Do you think a relationship should be forced between Jace and his dad?
