The feud has negative effects!
Becoming a mother while you’re still a teen yourself is enough to change anyone’s life track. It introduces a whole host of new stressors and traumas that most of your peers have no way of relating to.
Teenage motherhood can also put a huge strain on family relationships. Many times, teen mothers’ parents must play a hand in raising newborn children. In Jenelle and Jace’s case, Barbara Evans soon gained custody of Jace, becoming his primary caretaker soon after. Well, we all know how the rest of the story goes — Jenelle continued to fight to regain custody of her son which put a huge strain on her relationship with her mother.
What some don’t understand is just how much family fighting can affect the children involved. While Jenelle will clearly do anything in order to get custody of Jace, the tactics she and Barbara use in their battle will all have consequences. Now, an inside source is claiming that Jace is “struggling” as his mother and grandmother continue to fight over who will raise him.
Over the years, a lot has changed about Jenelle’s life. She’s had different relationships, different experiences, and even different jobs. The one thing that has remained the same since the moment she signed custody of Jace over to her mother Barbara is her fight to get him back.
Although the mother and daughter retained a relationship for a time, Jenelle has now cut her mother out of her life entirely. She even went so far as to leave Barbara off of her invite list for her own wedding!
As if that weren’t enough, Jenelle is now taking legal action against her own mother. She hit Barbara with a cease and desist letter, demanding that she stops making “false statements of accusation of drug abuse and child abuse.” Unfortunately, as the fight between the duo rages on, one insider says the biggest victim is Jace himself.
“He just doesn’t understand it,” a source close to the Evans family told Radar Online. “Jace is struggling with it so bad… He says, ‘Why can’t everybody just get along? Why can’t everybody just be happy and get along?’”
In fact, Barbara apparently wishes she had even more legal claim to Jace. She’s openly disapproved of Jenelle’s relationship with David Eason in the past, and apparently she’d prefer if Jace wasn’t around David at all.
“Barbara doesn’t even want Jace over there,” the source reported. They went on:
“David has taken her and alienated her on that property. He doesn’t want any of her family to have contact with her. He doesn’t want any of her family to have contact with her. He doesn’t want Nathan or Nathan’s family to have any contact with them. Everything is all about David. And all about David’s daughter and everyone is afraid what’s going to happen in the long run. Jenelle is just going to be with David’s kids and Kaiser, and Jace will get slighted!”
In the meantime, many fans don’t believe that David will be in the picture much longer. Although the newlyweds tied the knot at the end of September, one person who claims to know David personally has alleged that David is just using Jenelle for her money and fame.
