Former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans put on quite the show with mom Barbara for the paparazzi yesterday. Outside the courthouse, where Jenelle and David were scheduled to appear to discuss steps to regaining custody of their children, the mom and daughter duo broke out in a heated argument. You can watch the footage below:
Since, Jenelle has spoken out on the incident, telling Us Weekly that her relationship with her mom is now "destroyed."
The 27-year-old reality star explained that she didn't know why her mom accused her of only hugging her two-year-old daughter Ensley for the cameras, stating, "I believe my mom is saying anything at this point to make herself feel better. It might all boil down to jealousy."
"I do feel like my relationship with my mom is destroyed at this point," Jenelle continued. "This isn’t a way a mother should be treating her daughter. She fights so hard for my sister and my brother when they are the ones with major issues, not me."
Jenelle also addressed reports that she and David were giving up on Maryssa. The Ashley previously reported that after Maryssa allegedly refused to see her father in a recent visitation, the couple decided to no longer pursue custody of the child. However, Jenelle says that's not true. "All children are involved in this case, not just one or the other. In the end, either the three children will come home that live with us primarily [or not]," she claimed.
"No child was 'dropped' from the case at all," Jenelle continued. "Those reports are false and we are going to fight for all children to come home eventually."
After speaking to Us Weekly, Jenelle promptly took to social media to urge her followers to read the article. "I’m calling SOCIAL SERVICES on MY FAMILY #LinkInBio #PrayForEnsley," she wrote in the caption, which understandably confused fans.
The post's comments section blew up, as Jenelle received messages such as, "Girl get off Instagram and get your damn kids back," "Disgusting how she is using her daughter to sell stories," and "You[']re gonna call social service on a woman that not only took on one, but two of your children because you were too irresponsible to have them in your care? You should be ashamed of yourself."
We'll see if Jenelle continues to provide updates on the custody battle--whether you believe her or not.
