However, the fight for Kaiser is far from over. On July 24th, the reality star dad filed for primary custody of the 4-year-old. “It’s mediation. We’re going to talk and come to an agreement. If we don’t, then it’s going to go to custody court. I want to be the primary caregiver," he told the site of the upcoming court hearing.

In the motion filed by Nathan, he claimed that Jenelle's husband has been "violent" and "a danger" to the minor child. “Plaintiff and spouse have drug dependency and substance abuse issues,” the motion read. “Jenelle is frequently in criminal trouble and has been arrested over 20 times.” According to the clerk, Nathan claimed, “The minor child in question, as well as another of the Plaintiff’s children, did test positive for THC at birth.”

The battle of Kaiser exploded in early July after Nathan claimed that Kaiser "has marks all over him." He said in a 911 call obtained from Columbus County Emergency Services in North Carolina, “I have pictures from the day I picked him up from yesterday… there is bruising now."
