He wants his child back!
A lot has changed since the early days of Teen Mom. Instead of living with their parents and arguing with them, most of the cast members have their own places now. That doesn’t mean an end to the arguing, it just means a different type of fight. Now that the cast members are mature, their most common fights are with their exes as they continue to feud about custody of their children.
When it comes to custody battles, Jenelle Evans might just be the queen. She’s been fighting with her mother Barbara over custody of her son Jace essentially since the day she first signed it away. As if that weren’t enough, Jenelle has to show support for her husband, David Eason, as he fights in custody battles of his own.
When Jenelle and David got married, she became the stepmother to his two other children, Maryssa and Kaden. Although Maryssa is part of the family and spends most of her time with her new family, Kaden has yet to even appear in a family photo, as David was denied custody of his son.
Now, David is fighting back against his ex, dropping shocking documents about his baby mama in an effort to regain custody of his son.
Things seem to be quieting down when it comes to Jenelle’s custody battles. She recently lost a custody suit against her mother Barbara for custody of Jace. Although she’ll definitely attempt to get get her son back again, as of right now she has no ongoing court battles.
This may give her more time to help David as he faces off in a custody battle of his own. According to Radar Online, he’s taking his baby mama to court after accusing her of denying him access to his own son.
Although he does not have custody of Kaden, his ex granted him a visitation arrangement in February of last year. Now, David is filing a suit after she failed to actually allow him a visit.
“Plaintiff has communicated to Defendant that she has unilaterally decided to cease any contact or communication between Defendant and the minor child,” the court documents stated according to Radar Online. “Plaintiff has refused to allow the weekend and holiday visitation specified in the court order.”
In fact, according to the documents, David was forbidden from seeing his son. The papers continue:
“Plaintiff does not support the importance of Defendant’s continuing presence in the minor child’s life and is not willing to create a positive environment for the minor child’s development by ensuring defendants continuing relationship with the minor child.”
Apparently David is also not happy with the way that his ex seems to be pushing him out of his son’s life. “Plaintiff has refused to be respectful of Defendant’s parenting role and Plaintiff has allowed her current boyfriend to be overly involved in the parenting of the minor child to the extent that Plaintiff encourages the minor child to call her boyfriend ‘dad’ or ‘daddy,’” the papers read.
For a moment, many fans thought that Jenelle might be in court in upcoming weeks for an entirely different reason. After news surfaced that David’s sister Jessica was arrested after assaulting someone, many fans thought Jenelle may have been her victim due to their ongoing feud. Luckily, Jenelle took the time to clear up what was really going on between her and Jessica.
