Barbara's accusations are ramping up!
Most of the rumors in the Teen Mom fanbase are relatively harmless, but when accusations of drug use, neglect or abuse begin to fly, they can have serious repercussions. Jenelle Evans is currently facing a whole slew of such accusations, specifically that she used drugs during her pregnancy with Ensley. More shockingly, the source of the rumors seems to be her very own mother Barbara.
Even though the accusations are serious and may result in legal repercussions, Barbara isn’t backing down. In fact, it looks like she’s amping up her accusations… She has now told Radar that she believes Jenelle may have engaged in some serious neglect and abuse that affected Jace and Kaiser.
Things have seemed perfectly on track for Jenelle recently as she prepares for her wedding to fiance David Eason. However, her ex Nathan Griffith’s mother, Doris Davidson, has recently made claims that may derail everything Jenelle currently has going on. She took her claims to court, claiming that Jenelle’s drug use was putting her children at risk.
In the claim, Doris says that Jenelle “has an extensive history of drug use” that returned while she was pregnant with Ensley. She wrote, “Upon the birth of Ensley, the newborn tested positive for marijuana.” She went on to claim that “DSS became involved due to Ensley testing positive for marijuana and opened an investigation. Upon information and belief, both Plaintiff and David [Eason] had positive drug screens for marijuana.”
It wasn’t long before Jenelle’s mother Barbara chimed in to agree with Doris’s accusation. She told Radar, “That’s a fact. I have Jace, so when something like that happens, they contact me.”
Barbara is so worried that she’s prevented Jenelle from seeing Jace entirely. “That’s the reason we were going to court,” she told Radar. “I can’t send him over there when that’s happened,” she continued, referring to Ensley allegedly testing positive for drugs upon her birth. “I don’t want to put him in that atmosphere.”
She continued, “I knew all along [about Ensley] and never exposed it until the day of court in May. And the baby was born in January. All that time I never opened my mouth… You should not be smoking weed when you’re pregnant. She was friggin’ stoned the whole time [she was pregnant with Jace.] I don’t care what it is. It is illegal. She is irresponsible.”
“Conniving Little Thing”
Now, Barbara is amping up with even more accusations about how Jenelle cares for her children, accusing her of abuse and neglect. She told Radar, “It is true that Jenelle locked Jace and Kaiser out. It was over 100 degrees. Jace told me. He was upset. Because Kaiser kept going in and out of the house, David locked them out.” This story was corroborated by Doris Davidson, who also claimed that Jenelle and David let Jace get lost in the woods for hours before he was found.
In addition to this serious accusation of neglect, Barbara claims that David has gotten physical with the children. “Jace told me David hit Kaiser,” she told Radar. “Kaiser was pulling his diaper off because it had poop in it, and David got so mad that he spanked him really hard.”
“I’ve been worried about Kaiser for a long time,” she continued. “We think because he looks like Nathan, David gets more angry with him because of that fact… I think he’s trying to get rid of him, and then he’ll only have his own two kids and Jenelle in the house. He’s a conniving little thing.”
Under the Bus
According to Barbara, Jenelle is more focused on her own wedding and vacationing than her children. “All they do is take trips all the time,” she raged in the interview. “She has him the week of her wedding but because she’s going on a honeymoon she said she’s going to put him with somebody. That’s his school week off! He will be there for the wedding. But they are ditching all the kids to go on a honeymoon. I asked her ‘Why are you doing that?’ I want to say to Jenelle, ‘What the hell is wrong with you? You just went through it with Jace and you lost him again. Stop doing this.’”
As for Jenelle, she seems to think her mother has ulterior motives with these claims. She told Radar, “Our lawyers are working out a new agreement… Doris made accusations but I can tell you that Barbara has a lot to do with them. Doris threw her own son under the bus by admitting that he has pending felonies and possibly on drugs. Her emergency filing was against me and Nathan both.”
