Barbara Evans, Jenelle’s Mother – ‘Teen Mom 2’

Barbara Evans

Barbara Evans is the strong-minded mother of Jenelle Evans from Teen Mom 2 and she's also the grandmother to Jenelle's two sons. Jenelle's first-born son Jace is still in her custody and she often fights with her daughter to keep it that way. Because Jenelle was a teen mother, Barbara took over in hopes of her daughter getting her life together, but she's felt that Jenelle keeps making mistakes. Recently, Jenelle was arrested for the 16th time, getting into a fight with her ex Nathan Griffith's new girlfriend. Barbara has been very vocal about not approving of Nathan, in addition to several of Jenelle's other exes in the past. Though she's often at odds with Jenelle, Barbara still loves her daughter and worries about her being in abusive relationships, telling her that: I’m worried, Jenelle, because I was in a relationship all those years and he beat the hell out of me. I don’t want you to do what I did. I don’t want you to go through that kind of life. I just don’t want to see another guy drag you down. So, as far as what Barbara's been up to in her own life lately, she has an entertaining web series titled “Babs Breaks It Down.” Click here to check it out. She's also attending the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards this year. For more information on Barbara, Jenelle and their latest news, click through our gallery of Barbara's best Facebook photos.
