Jenelle is trying to convince her mom Barbara to adopt Jace, 2, so that she doesn’t have to be a mother anymore, reveals an insider.
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has already signed over temporary custody of her 2-year-old son Jace to her mom Barbara Evans — but that’s not enough. An insider claims that Jenelle wants Barbara to adopt Jace so that she won’t have any responsibilities to him anymore.
“She has told friends that she knows it means giving Jace up forever, but she genuinely thinks she’s doing the right thing,” the insider tells Reality Weekly.
Jenelle doesn’t want to pay child support to her mom anymore because she would rather use the money to party. “Jenelle would rather spend her time and money on herself than her son, which is why she wants her mom to officially adopt him,” explains the insider. “It’s really sad how selfish she is; her priorities are completely out of whack.”
“Jenelle always chooses partying over spending time with Jace,” says the insider. “She resents staying at her mother’s with the baby when she could be out partying.”
Jenelle often blows off her scheduled visits with Jace so that she can go out. “A couple of weeks ago she was supposed to look after Jace so that her mom could have a break, but she canceled because she was too partied out,” shares the insider. “She was partying until the early morning. The next day when it came time for her to see her son, she slept in instead.”
Because of these stunts, Jenelle and Barbara get into nasty arguments. “Her relationship with her mother is still terrible,” notes another source. “She still brags about partying every day and has practically no relationship with her son.”
So Barbara is trying to protect baby Jace. “Barbara has done everything she can to make her daughter take responsibility, but it hasn’t worked,” says the insider. “Her mom just wants what’s best for Jace. She can see that Jenelle is not in a place to be a mother. Ultimately, Jenelle’s mom loves Jace enough to step up and adopt him.”
