‘Teen Mom 2’: Jenelle Evans Has Reached a New Custody Agreement for 1 of Her Children
Jenelle Evans has had some custody troubles when it comes to her children. The former Teen Mom 2 star lost custody of all three of her children last year after her husband David Eason shot a dog in front of them. She has now reached a custody agreement with her son Kaiser’s father, Nathan Griffith.
Jenelle Evans lost and regained custody of Kaiser
In 2019, Evans lost custody of Jace, Kaiser, and Ensley after Eason shot a dog in front of the children. In July, they regained custody of the children.
“I am ecstatic to regain custody of my kids back!” Evans told E! News at the time. “Throughout this long process and final decision, I am excited to be moving forward and continuing to show America I’m a good parent.”
After the decision was made, Griffith’s mother, Doris Davidson, spoke to the outlet about how upset Griffith was with the outcome.
“Nathan is an absolute wreck over this,” she said. “He called me saying, ‘Mom, I can not believe this.’ Kaiser is so loved, sheltered, and protected here, I felt like I was lying to him when I told him I was going to protect him. I couldn’t protect him. My heart is broken, it’s just broken…We are in shock, absolute shock, at the judge’s decision.”
Past allegations of abuse
Since Evans regained custody of Kaiser, Griffith has been fighting to protect his son, claiming that he has been abused while in the care of Evans.
“Since NOOOOO one is hearing, I will say this. @ColCoES will not help, social services tried their hardest but NOOOO one listened … [It] makes me [realize] there is something wrong with the justice system,” he wrote in now-deleted tweets captured by In Touch. “How do you [explain] marks on my son’s back, [his] black eye, whip marks on his rear end, continuous police investigation. Charges against David Eason for multiple violence and aggressive behavior … NOTHING HAPPENS. What am I supposed to do besides being a panic parent!”
Evans, however, denied that any abuse happened.
“I have proof he was OK for his week visit with his father,” she tweeted. “I didn’t have one concerning phone call made to me or any reports of injuries. He’s just an adorable happy normal little man. #MommasBoy.”
The new custody agreement
Despite months of disagreements, Griffith and Evans have finally come to a compromise regarding Kaiser’s care. The new agreement, obtained by TMZ, states that Evans will keep primary physical custody of Kaiser and Griffith will get the child every other weekend. The document also states that Davidson will have Kaiser on the fifth weekend of the month and can substitute for Griffith if he is unable to take Kaiser on his scheduled weekends.
“I’m happy we were able to work it out and reach an agreement outside of court,” Evans told E! News. “We’re finally ready to all get along and not spend thousands of dollars in court fees.”
Evans now has custody of all three of her children and has been trying to prove that Child Protective Services illegally took her children away last year.
