She wants custody of Jace, but will let her mom have him for now. “Once I get a job, save money and have my own place for three months, then I’ll bring my mom to court,” she says.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans, 19, is finally admitting what the rest of us have known all along: She’s just not ready to be a mom to her adorable little son, 19-month-old Jace. Jenelle has already admitted that she smokes pot every day. And Jenelle’s screaming arguments with her mom (often in front of Jace) reached a climax recently when her mom, Barbara, served her with custody papers. Jenelle responded by saying, “Do you know I can punch you in your f–king face? You better back the f–k up!” This was so hard to watch. But now, Jenelle has changed her tune. “She knows she’s not ready,” says Barbara in a new exclusive interview with Us Weekly.
“He’ll go more to me than he does to Jenelle. That’s understandable, because I’m always here,” says Barbara in the interview. And Jenelle responds by saying, “I regret the part where she makes him go to day care every day, even though I am home. She thinks I am just going to hang out at my friends’ house and not pay any attention to him. I mean, I can take care of him until he’s 18, and she will still say he doesn’t know who I am.” Wait, what??? So now Jace doesn’t even know who Jenelle is??? This is worse than we thought.
Jenelle also says in the interview that her relationship with pot-head boyfriend, Kieffer Delp is “totally, completely over.” And how will she explain all this drama to little Jace when he’s old enough to understand what’s going on? “When he is older, I will tell him that I was really young and couldn’t put a roof over my head, let alone his,” says Jenelle.
