“Please keep Bubba in your thoughts and prayers! He has an infected abscess in his groin that is infecting his lymph nodes,” she captioned a selfie with her 6-year-old on Wednesday, November 11. “He’s been on multiple medications and hopefully this next antibiotic works. #GetWellSoon #PrayersPlease”
In response, one user wrote, “How does that happen?” to which the hater chimed in, “By recording him saying he has a headache and laughing at his pain instead of taking him [to] the doctor.” Not one to ignore criticism, David Eason‘s wife, 28, fumed, “Uhm … no. Kaiser’s been to the doctor for a month now. This is the reason why he’s already on his third antibiotic.”
This isn’t the first time the mom of three — who shares Jace, 11, with Andrew Lewis, Kaiser with Nathan Griffith and Ensley, 3, with David — responded to trolls. Most recently, the former MTV star defended herself after fans thought she shaded Leah Messer over past addiction struggles.
The drama started when Jenelle shared a cryptic message on Twitter. “I wonder if you’re really going to tell the truth about your addiction. I know too much. [face with tears of joy emoji] Why was I super honest about mine but you weren’t? Curious. [face with monocle emoji] #ThinkingOutloud,” the North Carolina native tweeted in October. She added in a separate tweet, “#IfTheShoeFits [woman shrugging emoji].”
Following criticism, the JE Cosmetics founder seemingly addressed the backlash. “Y’all have no idea wtf I’m even talking about … but go ahead keep assuming [woman shrugging emoji],” Jenelle wrote in a series of follow-up tweets on October 28. “If I tweet anything it’s always taken the wrong way [face with tears of joy emoji] [reversed hand with middle finger extended emoji].”
Though things may be rocky between her former costar, she now has a good relationship with Kaiser’s father. In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Jenelle reflected on her custody battle with her ex-fiancé.
“I am glad both parties can settle outside of court instead of fighting,” Jenelle told In Touch after coming to a custody agreement with Nathan. “I feel like coparenting at such a young age is scary and hard to cope with. Not everyone is going to get along to begin with. Everyone has a little space to grow and super glad we can all be on the same page now. Kaiser is a lot more happy and it’s a very positive change.”
Get well soon, Kaiser!
