TEEN Mom Jenelle Evans’ mother Barbara insisted she still has custody of Jace, 11, as the reality star says she “legally” can’t discuss the court battle.

Jenelle, 29, was quizzed by fans via TikTok about the ongoing situation and she responded in a video.

A TikTok user asked: “So I normally don’t believe everything I read online, but it says that your mom is fighting to get your son back again?”

Jenelle replied that she couldn’t talk about it for legal reasons, but would let everyone know when the time is right.

She continued: “Now I know you guys keep asking about my mom and Jace’s situation but right now again, another topic, it’s just not the time to talk about right now legally. Going through some stuff and I’ll let you guys know eventually.”

When a fan asked Barbara if she has custody of her grandson over Instagram, she responded “yes.”

There has been confusion regarding the fight between Jenelle and her mom over her eldest child Jace.

It recently emerged Jenelle has custody of Jace – whose father is Andrew Lewis – because her mom can “no longer handle” his behavior.

The one-time reality star claimed Jace was back with her in a TikTok video.

She said: “I have custody of Jace, he lives with me now full time. My kids are happy, healthy, that’s all that f***ing matters.”

According to The Ashley, the mother and daughter have reached an agreement to let Jace live full-time with Jenelle and her husband David Eason.

A source told the blog: “This decision has way more to do with Jace than Jenelle. Barbara can’t handle Jace anymore.

“They had been getting into really bad fights and Barbara is just done with it. That’s why she agreed to allow Jace to live with Jenelle. Things had gotten so bad between Barbara and Jace.”

The source claimed the pair was ready to sign off on legal papers.

But in a counter-statement, Barbara told TMZ that Jace was moving between both households because of the pandemic.

Barbara explained that Jace will go to Jenelle’s home for three or four days a week, mainly to give him a change of scenery.

She said that after Jenelle had made the claims, the two spoke on the phone and when confronted, she told her she “misspoke” and recognized that her mom still had custody.

Besides Jace, Jenelle is also mom to 6-year-old son, Kaiser with ex Nathan Griffith. She and David share a daughter, Ensley, 4.

Jenelle is also stepmom to David’s daughter Maryssa from a previous marriage.
