Barbara has had custody of Jenelle's son Jace since he was born because Jenelle was on drugs and unstable pretty much up until last year or so. But RadarOnline reports that a now-sober Jenelle has filed custody papers against her mother and is finally fighting for her son to come live with her, Nathan Griffith, and Jace's half brother, Kaiser, full time in Myrtle Beach. Jenelle is allegedly angry as well that Jace has been referring to Barbara as "mom!"
And fans have taken note of the fact that Jenelle seemingly hasn't seen Jace for quite a while. Jenelle has shared a few TimeHop pics of Jace recently, but the last photo she posted of him on Instagram was this one from Jan. 25!
Meanwhile, Jenelle has been overloading her social media with pics of her other son, Kaiser—which is totally fine because that kid is adorable. But it makes sense that we see a lot more of Kaiser, since Kai lives with both his parents (not his grandmother), and even when Jenelle was spending time with Jace it was only on weekends.
Jenelle even shared a recent snap of Nathan with Kaiser and his daughter, Emery, from a previous relationship, and Jace was left out of the family pic!
Towards the end of Teen Mom 2's fifth season, we saw the custody battle between Barbara and Jenelle in full force. Nathan urged Jenelle to fight for her son but she wanted to adjust to life with Kaiser first. Barbara agreed that she would try to transition custody of Jace over to Jenelle throughout the course of this school year, later saying on the reunion show that it would be a "slow process."
Jenelle hasn't yet acknowledged the custody claims, unless this tweet is a subtle mention of it? "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired," she wrote earlier today.
Until we find out from Jenelle what's really going on with the custody thing, she's given us this to hold us over—a hot new photo of her man, Nathan! "Ow ow owwww ! all mine." Jenelle wrote on Insta of this shirtless shot of her fiance. Well, at least we know that the engagement isn't over, if that counts for anything.
Do you think now's the time for Jenelle to fight her mom for custody of Jace? Do you think we'll see it unwind on Teen Mom 2? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
