‘Teen Mom 2’ star Jenelle Evans opened up on Twitter about Jace’s estranged father, Andrew Lewis. In a heartbreaking confession, Jenelle revealed that she feels bad for Jace because his father wants absolutely nothing to do with him. So sad.
Jenelle Evans admits that she feels bad for her son Jace, because his father, Andrew Lewis, refuses to get involved with his life.
Jenelle Evans Feels Bad For Her Son
“I hate trying to have a convo with Jace’s father… so hard not to get all mad at him,” Jenelle tweeted, presumably venting about a recent conversation with Andrew.
Later that same day, Jenelle followed up on her first tweet, confessing that she truly feels bad that her son does not have his biological father around. Jenelle also reveals that Andrew has made it very clear he does not want to be a part of Jace’s life.
“God I feel so bad for Jace. His dad really wants nothing to do with him. I never knew a father can actually have the balls to say this,” Jenelle wrote.
Thankfully, Jenelle has her boyfriend Nathan Griffith to be a supportive and positive father figure for Jace.
Andrew Tells A Different Story
In June 2013, Andrew came out of hiding and made very public claims that he wanted custody of his son, Jace. Andrew even claimed that it’s Jenelle who won’t let him see his son, and that he’s been trying for a long time to get involved in Jace’s life.
“She doesn’t want Jace to know that I’m his father,” Andrew said. “I tried to come see Jace, but they won’t [me] come see him. I texted Barbara Evans [Jenelle’s mother who is also Jace’s guardian] and asked her if I could see Jace. Straight up, she said, ‘No!’”
Andrew even claimed that he tried going through a court multiple times, but didn’t get any results.
“I’ve tried that so many times. You shouldn’t have to go through a court. There’s people out there that are homeless, literally — and at least they still get to see their children.”
However, since Andrew spoke up about his custody battle with Jenelle, no one has heard a peep from him. Could he have just been using Jenelle and Jace to get attention? It wouldn’t surprise us, that’s for sure.
