Jenelle Evans' Custody Battle With Her Mom Takes Another Ugly Turn

Jenelle Evans & Jace

Remember at the end of the last season of Teen Mom 2, when it seemed like Jenelle Evans and her mom had worked out a gradual transition in terms of Jenelle finally regaining custody of Jace? Yeah, well, it looks like their amicable agreement was pretty short lived.


According to RadarOnline, Jenelle and Barbara had a huge fight after Jenelle returned from her trip to St. Thomas with Nathan Griffith. A "friend" says, "Barbara told Jace that he can call her 'Mom.' And then Jenelle asked Jace if it was true and he said, 'Yes.' That made Jenelle furious."

And of course, Jenelle confronted Babs and all hell broke loose, and to make a long story short, Jenelle has supposedly filed papers in an attempt to get full custody of Jace, which Babs isn't exactly pleased with.

The source says that Babs is now trying to keep Jenelle from seeing Jace, adding:

Barbara's excuses keep changing. When Jenelle asked last week why she couldn't see Jace, Barbara said, 'Well, you're taking me to court, aren't you? All right then, you aren't seeing Jace.'

Ugh. If this report is true, we have to feel really, really sorry for that poor little boy. I'm sure he adores both his grandmother and his mom, so it's just not fair to put him in the middle of this whole mess.

On the one hand, Jenelle does appear to have turned her life around, so it was only a matter of time before she went after full custody of her son. But on the other hand, Babs is the one who has raised him and been the motherly figure in his life -- it's understandable for her to be hesitant to let him go. She knows she will miss him and she's worried about how he will adjust to such a huge transition.

Hmm. Maybe it's a good thing that they're taking a step back and letting the courts decide what's best for Jace? The less direct confrontation these two have at this point, the better. 

Who do you think should have custody of Jace?
