Jenelle Evans may have been overjoyed to get son Kaiser back in her custody on Tuesday night, but the four-year-old’s father Nathan Griffith was “devastated” over the news. Nathan has accused Jenelle’s husband David Eason of abusing the four-year-old and refused to hand him back to the couple on Sunday — and even called 911 to try to get authorities involved. Now that Kaiser is back in Jenelle and David’s custody, Nathan’s girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt spoke with RadarOnline.com about how Nathan and his family are coping in the midst of the dramatic custody standoff.

“Words can’t express how devastated we are,” Ashley exclusively told the site. “David is a disgusting excuse for a human.”
Ashley said the family was horrified at David’s behavior on Tuesday evening, when he and Jenelle picked up Kaiser from his grandmother Doris Davidson’s house. David live streamed the handoff on Instagram and taunted the family while filming.
“Say bye to grandma, Kaiser…Bye Doris, you’re so lovely,” David can be heard saying. “She said get off her property. She’s going to have me arrested! F**king ugly b***h. Try to take my kid away from me again!”
“The way he taunted Doris on IG live, he is truly a sad soul,” Ashley said of David’s video. “Doris was terrified.”
In the video, David also called out Nathan for not being present for the custody handoff. “Guess who is not here? Nathan! He don’t give a f**k. He don’t give a s**t. Where is Nathan? Where is dad?” David questioned.
Ashley said the only reason Nathan wasn’t around is because he was driving her back to Florida, but he planned to return to his mother’s home as soon as possible. “We had my car in South Carolina and I had to work this week. We got home to Florida at 5am Monday morning. Nate got his vehicle and freshened up and was driving back to South Carolina when it all happened,” Ashley explained. “He had to watch it from his car. We thought him being gone for less than a day wouldn’t affect anything.”
