Jenelle’s son, Jace, has been living with her mom, but now the Teen Mom 2 star wants him back — and both women are willing to go head to head to battle it out.
After a month of not seeing her little boy, Evans makes use of their time together when he comes over, asking him if he would like to live with her and her fiancé, Nathan Griffith. Jace may have insisted he wanted to, but Barbara was not going to let the 5-year-old go without putting up a fight.
According to Us Weekly, during a phone conversation with her friend, Barbara revealed that she hadn’t ‘really talked to Jenelle in about a month.’ Both of them have been so mean to me that this is the first time Jace has gone over there in about a month.”
Barbara also revealed that Jace had told her he wanted to live with her, and she was worried that if he went back to Jenelle’s house, he would be upset by all the drama in her household.
“I’d be devastated [if Jenelle got custody], because I know he’d go to this house and he would be so upset,” an emotional Barbara said. “All that yelling and screaming. He’d be so unhappy. If they got Jace, I probably would never see him again. And it would kill me, and it would hurt him.”
Barbara and her daughter then get embroiled in a bitter argument after Jace refers to his grandma as “mom.”
“He wants to live here,” Jenelle spat. “He told me he wants to live here. He needs more time with his mother, that’s what he needs. That’s why he’s so distraught and confused.”
“He sits here and thinks this is his home, but then when he goes back to your house, he doesn’t understand. And you say, ‘You can call me mom.’ No, he can’t. I’m the mom!” Jenelle said.
