This could get uglier ...
The fight between ‘Teen Mom’ Jenelle Evans and her mother Barbara may have just hit scorching temperatures as of late. The two can’t seem to squash their bickering over who should be allowed to decide Evans’ son Jace’s comings and goings.
Jenelle, if you remember, doesn’t have custody of her eldest born child and relinquished control of the now seven-year old to her own mother. The tough decision came as a result of the teenaged celebrity’s inability to completely provide the stability that a young child would need from their mother in its earliest years of life. Evans has since done somewhat of a 360 and now desires to have her child with her (and we feel rightfully so).
Only now it seems that Babs doesn’t want to part ways with the precocious kid that she has basically raised since his arrival into their family. Having grown attached to her grandson, the Walmart worker and grandmother refuses to give up custody of Evan’s son, Jace. We’re sort of confused because now that Jenelle seems to be on her feet we’d think this would be a perfect time for her to re-assume her responsibilities. Though, in a perfect world we would see this as fitting …tis not the case with this mother and daughter duo who are now at each others throat for custody of this kid.
Refusing to film with her mother
It appears the wounds run deep with this situation and we imagine so since this feud has been brewing and almost boiling over through the last two season of the popular MTV series ‘Teen Mom 2.’ Sources report that the pair’s battles have reached a new low with Jenelle at times refusing to even film the show if her mother is going to be present. We’d imagine she’s trying to avoid the nasty bickering that the two can’t seem to stray away from whenever they’re together.
Still waters run deep
Despite Jenelle’s attempts at making her mother disappear from the show – cameras can’t get enough of this mother daughter combo who seem to cause sparks and thus continued interest on just when they will finally resolve their differences (if ever).
We think there may have been a little shove for the spotlight, with Evans insisting that now the show has signed on her mother AND her ex-Nathan they don’t need her. We beg to differ though as the entire group gives us more than a little comedic relief and a chance to see all sides of Jenelle’s rather interesting story.
A Mother’s Day well spent ?
Tensions flared this past weekend, when an excited Evans had apparently planned on spending the holiday with ALL of her kids instead of just her two youngest. It’s clear that Babs refused to budge on this one leaving the teen mom to celebrate with the children she has custody of. We think this is a tad bit drastic on Barbara’s part since Jenelle is Jace’s biological mother.
What’s more is that Jenelle claims she made every effort to spend time with her oldest baby boy and even made the trip to her mother’s house in the hopes of retrieving Jace for the day. Instead, Evans claims her mother refused to come to the door and even hid inside the home to avoid facing her daughter!
