Teen Mom 2‘s Jenelle Evans will be back in court this week to get the final verdict on guardianship of her eldest son, Jace, but she seems to have landed in hot water with her ex, Nathan Griffith, who has accused her of abusing their 2-year-old son.
After posting a photo of their 2-year-old son, Kaiser, with his younger sister Ensley, Nathan Griffith and several of Jenelle Evans’ fans and commenters noticed bruises on the little boy’s upper arms which would be consistent with being grabbed and pulled.
Nathan Griffith responded on social media, directing his anger at his baby mama.
“If anyone dared lay a physical hand on either one of my kids, it would be hell on earth real freaking quick! #treadlightly #definitionofDADDY”
However, Jenelle Evans claims that people are blowing the incident way out of proportion and it isn’t what it seems like. Jenelle confirmed to Radar Online that Kaiser did have bruises on his upper arms, but not because of her actions.
“I don’t understand what it is but every time he gets to the top step he starts taking off his shoes and doesn’t realized he’s that close to the edge.”
Jenelle Evans spoke to the news outlet to ensure that viewers know that Kaiser’s bruises are definitely not a result of anything she and fiancé, David Eason, have done.
Allegations of child abuse are the last thing this mother of three needs in her life right now. She will be facing off with her mother in court this week over custody of her eldest son, Jace, 7. Jenelle Evans signed primary custodianship of her oldest over to her mother shortly after he was born due to the fact that she was relatively irresponsible and was often partying or in trouble with the law over drugs. The agreement, however, was that Jenelle’s mother, Barbara Evans, would return him to his mother once she had calmed down and started living a responsible life.
Jenelle Evans, however, claims that now she is living life as responsibly as possible and has settled down with her fiancé, David Eason, his daughter from a previous relationship, Maryssa, and the daughter the pair share together. However, Barbara now feels that it is too late in the game to return Jace to Jenelle, as he has his entire life and school lined up near and with Barbara. Jenelle, however, has threatened to cut her mother out of both of their lives entirely if Jace is returned to her this week.
Fans are extremely divided on whether Jenelle Evans should have her son back full-time or whether he should stay with Barbara. Jenelle has taken to social media to ask fans to pray for her in the hopes that the long and drawn out custody battle will finally go her way.
Jenelle is also in a heated custody battle with her ex and father of Kaiser, Nathan Griffith. Although at one point, Nathan stated that he was going to move to the United Kingdom and wanted to permanently sign over custody of his son, he is now fighting with Jenelle Evans over the time they get to see him. It is possible he is trying to make Jenelle look bad in an effort to win over custody of his son.
Nathan and Jenelle’s battles in court are ongoing, even when they don’t relate to Kaiser. Nathan and his ex-girlfriend, Jessica, took Jenelle to court to charge her with assault after a mason jar of water slipped out of her hand when she was throwing water on Jessica. She was cleared of all charges, which could have had a huge impact on her career and life had she been deemed guilty.
