Could David really be that bad?
Jenelle Evans’ mother Barbara has been at odds with every guy that Jenelle has ever been in a relationship with; Babs fully believes that Jenelle makes really bad choices when it comes to men, and it’s lead her down a path of addiction, jail, and multiple unexpected pregnancies. Jenelle and David have been together for over a year and are set to wed, but Barbara still has some major doubt over whether David is the one for Jenelle.
Fighting for Jace
Barbara has always been a punching bag for her daughter Jenelle even though she’s the legal guardian of Jace, but things were really coming to a head just before their latest fight for his custody. In the weeks before they were set to argue their cases, Jenelle may have pulled a stunt to make Babs look bad that ended up backfiring.
Barbara explained to an MTV producer, “She called me at home and asked if she could have Jace, and Jace did not want to go. So Jace told her that; Jace said, “Mommy, I don’t want to go to your house.'”
Barbara then said that Jenelle and David showed up at the restaurant where Barbara was having lunch with her friends with Jace in tow. Barbara had one glass of wine that she didn’t even finish (she has the receipt to prove this), and Jenelle accused Barbara of being far too intoxicated to drive Jace and the other children she was caring for. David and Jenelle followed Barbara to her car where they took cellphone footage of Barbara loading the kids in the car while Jenelle insisted that she was too drunk to drive.
A Little Control
To Barbara, the whole thing seemed like a set-up by David and Jenelle to make her look bad when they took their custody battle to the court. When they got there, Barbara won out; she’s still the legal guardian of Jace, but Jenelle will have visitation on the weekends and on holidays. Jenelle and Barbara have Jace in therapy, but still try not to speak to each other if they can avoid it.
Barbara may be stuck with Jenelle until the courts decide that Jenelle is ready to handle the child on her own, but she doesn’t have any dealings with the many men in Jenelle’s life. Barbara really doesn’t like Jenelle’s soon-to-be husband David because she feels like he’s a bad influence on her and the kids.
Barbara said about Jenelle’s men, “I’m done with her and her lousy boyfriends. If she wants to live with this loser guy, David…I have no respect for this guy. He’s not this nice guy he portrays it to be on TV.” Barbara previously said that Jace confessed that he doesn’t like going to Jenelle’s house because David and his daughter Marissa are mean to him.
Barbara continued about David, “He doesn’t work, he just sucks all the money up. [Jenelle says] ‘Oh David’s good. He’s doing all this stuff in the house.’ He’s using all of Jenelle’s money, man. He’s an A-1 a*shole. He’s a big a*shole. He’s a user, and he’s gonna use Jenelle until there’s no more.”
Jenelle is set to marry David on September 23 at their home in North Carolina. Barbara is not invited to the ceremony because Jenelle will have custody of Jace that weekend.
