Teen Mom Jenelle shares rare video with son Jace, 11, & calls him her 'best friend' after she has custody case sealed
TEEN Mom's Jenelle Evans called son Jace, 11, her “best friend” as she shared a rare video of the two together after getting his custody case sealed.
Wearing a leopard print crop top and khaki shorts, the former MTV star danced in the background as Jace mimed the words.
Fans of Jenelle were thrilled to see the two together and rushed to leave comments of support.
One wrote: "Okay I'm loving these vibes need more of this duo."
"what a fun mother you are and he is so grown up and beautiful so much love for you girlie," enthused another.
Another penned: "it's the self confidence you look so good and healthy!"
Earlier this week a North Carolina court clerk exclusively revealed to The Sun that Jenelle, 29, and her mom Barbara’s custody case over Jace, 11, has been sealed.
This ruling means all filings and upcoming court hearings are not public record and could only be accessed by parties involved in the case.
Jenelle had the custody battle sealed after her mom revealed her son Jace’s “out of control” behavior in court documents.
The Sun previously reported that the Teen Mom 2 star filed for sole custody of her troubled son Jace and in an emergency request on January 28, 2021.
Barbara currently has primary physical and legal custody of Jace, as Jenelle has visitation with him every other weekend, after she signed over custody of her son to her mother in June 2010.
According to the custody filing, Jenelle claimed there has been a “substantial change in circumstances affecting the welfare of the minor child” that warrants a change in the custody agreement.
The former Teen Mom 2 star claimed Jace is “at risk of bodily injury” in the care of his grandmother, which is why she is filing for emergency custody.
Jenelle alleged Jace has had “increasingly worse behavior problems that cause him to be physically aggressive, out of control and unsafe.”
The YouTuber claimed Barbara told her she “cannot control the minor child’s behaviors.”
Barbara was instructed by his health care provider “multiple times” to call a crisis hotline or go to the Emergency Department if Jace’s “aggression escalates,” Jenelle alleged in the filing.
Jenelle noted an alleged December 19, 2020 incident where Jace and Barbara “argued throughout the day.”
The court papers claimed: “The minor child physically assaulted [Barbara] twice causing injury to [Barbara.] The minor child also burned the carpet because he was angry with [Barbara].
“The minor child has a history of starting fires in the home of [Barbara].”
Jenelle claimed her mother “did not contact the crisis line or seek any treatment or professional help for the minor child during this incident.”
The former MTV star alleged Barbara reached out to Jenelle for help with Jace.
Jenelle claimed that on December 20, 2020, she picked up Jace to bring him to live with her primarily at the consent of Barbara.
Jenelle said she is “fit and proper” to have sole legal and physical custody of Jace, while Barbara is “not fit and proper to have the care, custody and control of [Jace] due to her lack of ability to properly care for the child and ensure he has a safe home environment.”
She asked for any visitation between Barbara and Jace to be “therapeutic in nature until they are able to appropriately manage the conflict in their relationship.”
Jenelle requested the court issue an emergency custody order for Jace to be transferred to her care “immediately.”
Barbara responded by requesting Columbus County Department of Social Services provide her attorney with documents, including medical records and psychological evaluations, for review.
All court hearings following the filing were postponed.
Only one week before the motion for custody filing, Jenelle revealed she regained custody of Jace.
She said in a TikTok video: “I have custody of Jace. He lives with me now full-time. My kids are happy, they’re healthy.”
But Barbara denied Jenelle’s claims that she has full custody in an interview.
Jenelle then posted a YouTube video firing back at her mom.
She claimed: “Jace was with me the past week because of his behavior. It was really bad… My mom couldn’t handle it. His behavior was horrible. The things he was doing was horrible. That’s all we’re saying about that.
“My mom couldn’t handle it… He wouldn’t do his school work. I’m the only one who could make him do his school work.
“'Next time you act up you’re coming to my house, you’re going to be living here' and my mom agreed. She said, 'I can’t do this anymore.' Things are getting really bad. He’s cussing a lot. I don’t know where he gets it from because he’s definitely not getting it from my house.”
