It's getting serious!
The Teen Mom fanbase often discusses how difficult Jenelle and Barbara’s relationship has been on the mother and daughter duo. However, there’s one person above all who bares the brunt of their constant feuding: Jace himself. Jace has had a difficult childhood since day one, with his father Andrew abandoning him from a very early age and his mother signing over custody rights to his grandmother. Since then, he’s been tugged back and forth as Jenelle and Barbara continue to feud for his attention and his custody.
But now it looks like Jace may be victim to more than just the bickering of his mother and grandmother. According to Jenelle, he’s also the victim of abuse — by his own grandmother!
It’s one thing to spread rumors of abuse or even tweet about it, but Jenelle took it to a much more serious level. She took it directly to the authorities, calling 911! Check out the shocking phone call of Jenelle accusing Barbara of abusing her son.
Despite their ample on-screen feuding, fans realize that a lot of Jenelle and Barbara’s animosity takes place behind the scenes. Not all of their personalities are always shown on camera, and if Jenelle’s accusations are true, Barbara has a much more violent side that has never been captured.
Jenelle called 911 on Dec. 7 to report that her mother was hitting her son. In the gripping transcript of the phone call, she informs the operator that her son was having a difficult time breathing.
“My son called me crying his eyes out and saying that my mother is actually hitting him and he’s huffing and puffing and he can’t breathe,” she told the operator. “I said, ‘Hey, hey, hey. Calm down. What’s wrong? What’s wrong?’ [Jace] said, [Grandma] hit me! [Grandma] hit me!”
Jenelle claims that Barbara overheard Jace talking to Jenelle on the phone and became furious. “Then [Barbara] said ‘Oh you’re going to tell mommy that?’ And she grabbed his phone and now she’s on speaker phone and I have them on mute.”
She went on, “She’s also saying stuff like ‘Get out of the house, leave the house. You need to leave and never come back.’ She doesn’t even know that I’m still on the phone right now.”
Jenelle explained that she was calling 911 from Maryssa’s phone while leaving her own phone on the call with Jace. She claims Barbara continued to tell Jace to leave without realizing that Jenelle could hear her every word.
“She’s literally saying all of this and she has no idea I’m hearing any of it,” Jenelle tells the operator. “My son’s screaming for me in the background and she will not give him the phone and she will not answer my phone call.”
The operator replies that they will dispatch officers, and the phone call ends. Check out the full audio recording of the call below.
