“Teen Mom 2” alum Jenelle Evans recently opened up about her relationship with her mom, Barbara Evans, and revealed she wants full custody of her twelve-year-old son Jace.

Barbara, 69, has had full custody of Jace since 2010, but Jenelle is hoping that changes. According to The Sun, the MTV star filed for sole custody in January 2021.

Jenelle spoke to E! News in May 2022 about the ongoing custody battle, telling the outlet she is fighting for full custody of Jace.

“If we end up going to trial, I’m going to ask for full [custody] completely,” she said. “I’m still trying to work it out civilly.”

“I get him every other weekend,” Jenelle added. “If she wants to compromise, I’ll switch roles and have him during the week and she can have him every other weekend instead.”

Jenelle Evans on Co-parenting With Barbara

Jenelle and Barbara have not always been on the best terms. Over the years, “Teen Mom” viewers have watched the two struggle to maintain a healthy relationship. Jenelle told E! News in March 2021 that she was not speaking terms with her mom.

However, the two have recently made strides in their relationship. Jenelle told E! News in May 2022 that the two are now in a good place.

“We’ve actually been co-parenting good,” she said. “She’ll call me and tell me when Jace is misbehaving and [asks], ‘Can you call and talk to him?’ And I do.”

Leah Messer Throws Shade at Kailyn Lowry on Twitter

“Teen Mom 2” star Lesser Messer recently caught the attention of fans after she liked a shady tweet about her former friend Kailyn Lowry. 

After the season finale of “Teen Mom 2,” Leah liked a tweet from a fan who wrote, “what we not gone do is throw Leah under the bus. Kail acting like we didn’t see allll the drama from the messy car, addiction, slurring her words, messy divorce… Leah filmed it ALL!” 

The tweet was a response to a remark Kailyn made on the show. The “Coffee Convos” host claimed Leah did not share personal details about her life on “Teen Mom 2.” 

What Happened With Kailyn & Leah?

After Kailyn unfollowed Leah on social media in March 2022, rumors circulated that the two were no longer friends. 

An insider told The Sun that the feud between Lowry and Messer kicked off because of Messer’s relationship with Briana DeJesus.

“Once Briana and Leah were on the ‘Teen Mom: Family Reunion’ and Leah wasn’t mean to Briana, that didn’t sit well with Kail,” the source revealed. 

Kailyn and Briana have been in an infamous feud since 2017. 

“After the Family Reunion trip, Leah and Briana have stayed friendly and Briana frequently comments on Leah’s pics,” the source added. “While Kail used to comment all the time on Leah’s pics, that seemed to stop once Briana began commenting and, as we’ve all seen, Kail now unfollowed Leah.”
