Jenelle Evans Taking Barbara to Court for Custody of Jace — Report

Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans is officially taking her mother, Barbara Evans, to court in an attempt to win back custody of her son, Jace! Jenelle gave up custody shortly after Jace's birth, and she's finally in a place where she's stable enough to raise him. Not only has she been sober for well over two years, she's in school, engaged, and raising a new baby boy.

Jenelle's custody petition has been a long time coming, but according to, she's become more than motivated thanks to a huge fight with her mom. “Barbara told Jace that he can call her ‘Mom,’” a source tells Radar. “And then Jenelle asked Jace if [it was true] and he said, ‘Yes.’ That made Jenelle furious.”

Jenelle reportedly asked Barbara about the situation, who told her that Jace “can call me whatever he wants,” and expressed concern over Jenelle “brainwashing him.”

Meanwhile, Babs also voiced her discomfort with Jace being around Nathan Griffith thanks to his former drinking habits. Nathan's drinking has been an issue for Barbara before, but Radar's source claims he's “only drank one time since they’ve been back [from the engagement],” adding that “they’re trying not to have any of those problems.”

So, when is Jenelle taking Barbara to court? As early as next month! “When Barbara finally got served last week, she got mad,” the source says, explaining that Jenelle is seeing Jace less than usual due to the increasing tension between his mother and grandmother.

“When Jenelle asked last week why she couldn’t see Jace, Barbara said, ‘Well, you’re taking me to court, aren’t you? Alright then, you aren’t seeing Jace’ — then she hung up on Jenelle,” the source says.

Unfortunately, Jace hasn't spent the night at Jenelle's house in over a month thanks to this feud, but hopefully Jenelle will secure either partial or full custody next month, and work on bonding with her main man!
