On an episode of Teen Mom 2. Babs said the main reason is that Jenelle’s son Jace is “scared to death” of Jenelle’s fiancé, David Eason, who had some choice words to say about his soon-to-be mother-in-law. “It takes one of the lowest, most selfish pieces of s–t in the world to do what she does. That’s why I hate her so f–king much,” David said. Watch the video below to learn more about their new arrangement.
Previously, Jenelle and her mom got into a screaming match in front of Jace and the whole thing was caught on cell phone footage by David. It all went down when Jenelle said that her mom refused to let her pick up Jace for the weekend because she was going out for Cinco de Mayo with her friends. Jenelle assumed that her mother would be drinking, so she drove out to the restaurant and filmed footage of Barbara allegedly drinking. As Barbara walked to her car with Jace in tow, Jenelle confronted her and accused her mom of drinking and driving and it seemed like it was a way to get leverage in their upcoming custody hearing.
“Ever since that argument, she really hasn’t answered any of my calls,” Jenelle explained. “Her attorney is probably really scared because I don’t have to hand in any evidence I’m gonna use in court unless I filmed it without my mom’s knowledge.”
Last month, Jenelle opened up about how the custody battle over her son Jace has affected her relationship with her mom. “We don’t talk much. We only talk about Jace and meeting up to drop him off or pick him up and other than that, we aren’t talking,” the Teen Mom 2 star revealed to Us Weekly. “I told her, ‘If you want to be back in my life in any way, you can give me back my son and we can start from there.’ As long as I don’t have Jace, I don’t see us having a real relationship.”
Even though they came to an agreement over custody, Jenelle said she is still “frustrated” with her mom and that she “lost all respect” for her. But shortly after the big change in her custody agreement, Jenelle has really been cherishing all the extra time she has with her son.
She took her little boy on a vacation and shared a photos from their trip. In one shot, she spent some quality mother-son time with Jace as they rode horses together on the sand with a gorgeous backdrop of ocean and mountains and they both smiled wide for the camera.
“Blessed this day finally got to happen,” Jenelle wrote in the caption. “Brought Jace to the place I’ve been wanting to for years. I’m so grateful and blessed my son can travel now and share the same experiences…starting now.”
And Jace is also getting to spend time with his siblings! His mom has shared a sweet photo of the seven-year-old son (whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Andrew Lewis) bonding with his two-year-old half-brother Kaiser as they piled dirt into a little red wagon. “They are super proud of their work,” the 25-year-old wrote in the caption, adding the hashtags “#BoysWillBeBoys” and “#Brothers.”
Jenelle obtained a tiny win over her mother, and now she will get to spend even more time with her oldest son. Jenelle — who got engaged to David earlier this year — will now have Jace on weekends, holidays, and for the summer. “I’m not restricted to when my mom says I can have my son anymore and at the moment that’s all I care about. [I] just want to spend time with my son. He will be home one day but today wasn’t the day, sadly,” she told E! News. “I’m really happy we could come to a decision for Jace but it doesn’t change my feelings towards my mom. She still isn’t giving up my son to me but I will fight again in the future when the time is right.”
“I’m happy but devastated at the same time that I didn’t take it to trial. But in the world of Jenelle, you learn to pick and choose your battles,” she added. The mother-of-three also told the publication that she will gun for more custody “maybe in a year, but I want the judge to see this new order has been in effect and [I’ve] been complying with it no problems.”
The change in their custody agreement came shorlty after Jenelle alleged that Babs “hid” Jace from her on Mother’s Day. However, she was able to spend the holiday with her other two kids, Kaiser and Ensley. David also has two kids of his own, Maryssa and Kaden, from previous relationships. “I’m torn,” she said at the time. “Was mad for too long then turned into tears the rest of my night.”
