Jenelle Evans claims to have regained custody of her eldest son, Jace, from her mother, Barbara Evans.
According to Us Weekly, the Teen Mom 2 star made the “little PSA announcement” in a series of videos on TikTok. “You are probably watching Teen Mom on Netflix right now as we speak and if you are, good. That was the old me,” the 29-year-old insisted. “That was the young me, the stupid me, the me that took risks.”
“Now let’s not sit here 10 years later and come to my page and hate on me for my mistakes that I learned from,” the mother-of-three went on. “Let’s not get caught up on the $200 you let me use to bail me out of jail. Let’s not get caught up on the dumbass men that I dated. ”
“I have custody of Jace. He lives with me now full-time,” she revealed. “My kids are happy, they’re healthy. That’s all that f—king matters. But I totally get it, I would hate me too if I was watching me. But if you catch up with me now, I’m doing a lot better, you guys. Peace, love, happiness, b—s.”
Anyone who’s watched the teen pregnancy reality show knows Jenelle signed over temporary custody of her first son to her mother in 2010 after being in and out of jail due to multiple arrests, including those for drug possession. Barbara previously won permanent custody of Jace in 2017.
Jenelle’s statement comes weeks after she celebrated Christmas with her husband, David Eason, and her three children — 11-year-old son Jace, 6-year-old son Kaiser and 3-year-old daughter Ensley.
In 2019, Jenelle infamously lost custody of her children temporarily after Eason admitted to shooting and killing their family’s dog, an incident that resulted in Jenelle being fired by MTV.
As previously reported, Jenelle briefly broke up with Eason after he was arrested last summer for assault with a deadly weapon.
