Jenelle Evans‘ tumultuous relationship with her mother, Barbara, is boiling over once again.
After being on the outs with her mom for some time, the Teen Mom 2 star revealed in a new blog, titled Overcoming Life’s Obstacles , that she’s ready to fight for custody of first-born son Jace, 6, once again — even relocating to her hometown to do so.
“Moving back to North Carolina was also such a big deal to me because, of course, as everyone knows, I do not have custody of my first son, Jace,” she wrote in the tell-all blog entry. “I was going to wait for it and see how my mom felt about me moving back, hoping and praying I can have my son as well. It seems like things aren’t changing as of now.”
But the reality star, 24, admitted that convincing her mom won’t be an easy task.
“I realized I’m going to fight a tough battle between my own mother and me because she will not let me have my son back. I think maybe she’s too attached to him, or maybe she doesn’t want to be alone,” Evans shared. “I never thought my mother would still put up such a battle with me, knowing I’m sober, knowing my dating life is perfect, and everything has been smooth sailing since I’ve moved back.”
Now, Evans says she’s “waited long enough” and is hoping to gain custody of Jace in the next few months.
Of course, it’s been a long road for the mother-daughter duo, who were at odds last year over Teen Mom filming.
“Right now she is mad at me because I don’t want to film with her,” Evans told Radar in November, adding, “She always wants to argue with me on camera. I just don’t want to film with her.”
