Jenelle Evans’ mother Barbara says she has banned the Teen Mom 2 star from seeing her son indefinitely following her recent scandal.
Evans tested positive for marijuana while she was pregnant with her newborn daughter, Ensley, according to multiple media reports.
Additionally, Jenelle is accused of child neglect, and is being threatened with a custody fight over her second child, son Kaiser.
Just for a refresher, Jenelle had Jace with Andrew Lewis, who is MIA; Barbara Evans has cared for the boy almost his entire life.
She then had Kaiser with former fiance Nathan Griffith, and earlier this year, welcomed Ensley with current fiance David Eason.
The drug test shocker is bad news for her relationship with all three children, as even her own mom is drawing a red line over it.
Barbara Evans opened up about the explosive court documents filed by Griffith’s mother, who is seeking emergency custody of Kaiser.
“That’s a fact,” Barbara said of reports that Jenelle failed a drug test and was investigated by DCS for passing it along to Ensley.
“I have Jace, so when something like that happens, they contact me,” she said. “That’s the reason we were going to court.”
“I can’t send him over there when that’s happened [Ensley testing positive for drugs]. I don’t want to put him in that atmosphere.”
“I knew all along [about Ensley] and never exposed it until the day of court in May,” Barbara told Radar. “And the baby was born in January.”
“All that time I never opened my mouth.”
“I’m very curious if MTV will air the footage of me from the day I went to court with Jenelle,” she said of the conflict with her daughter.
“After court I was talking to one of her girlfriends, Jamie, asking ‘what do you think about this.’ I told her, ‘You just don’t know all that’s going on.'”
“I said, ‘If you people only knew this true story. This is not about me or her, this is about Jace. Jace’s life.’ They filmed that.”
“I said it [Ensley testing positive for drugs]. Everybody thinks that I held Jace back, I told the girl. That’s the reason why.”
“She said ‘I didn’t know that.’ Well, nobody knew it. I was contacted about the investigation and told about it in court.”
Barbara says she has been cut off from her two younger grandchildren by Jenelle: “She won’t let me see Kaiser or Ensley.”
“I can’t see either one of them. She did that a long time ago. Same situation. She won’t let me see them,” she lamented.
“Then she says, ‘You don’t want to see your grandkids,’ but I told her, ‘You told me you would have me arrested if you came on your property.’”
Talk of Jenelle’s erratic behavior costing her custody is not new, but Barbara Evans also dropped another shocking allegation:
She got high on weed while pregnant with Jace as well.
“You should not be smoking weed when you’re pregnant. She was friggin’ stoned the whole time [she was pregnant with Jace],” says Barbara.
“I don’t care what it is. It is illegal. She is irresponsible.”
For her part, the 25-year-old Jenelle denies abusing her kids, calling the allegations just that, “allegations, mostly driven by my mom.”
“Our lawyers are working out a new agreement. Our lawyers are talking today. Doris [Davidson, Nathan’s mom] made accusations.”
“But I can tell you that Barbara has a lot to do with them.”
“Doris threw her own son under the bus by admitting that he has pending felonies and possibly on drugs,” Jenelle fires back.
“Her emergency filing was against me and Nathan both.”
That’s hardly comforting for Barbara, who says she won’t let Jenelle see Jace, and that she fears for the toddler in Jenelle’s custody.
“I’ve been worried about Kaiser for a long time. We think it’s because he looks like Nathan, therefore David gets more angry with him.”
“Just because of that fact.”
While David Eason’s treatment of Jenelle’s kids from her previous relationships has been criticized as well, he is not part of this investigation.
All we can say is stay tuned, because this saga is bound to get worse before it gets better, and to say a prayer for the children involved.
