Nathan Griffith was forced to hand his son Kaiser over to Jenelle Evans after he contacted authorities about mysterious bruises and marks on the 4-year-old. The Teen Mom 2 star’s girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com how ‘devastated’ the family is.
The drama started on Friday, June 29 when Griffith called police to report Evans and her husband David Eason when he noticed bruises on his butt. He called authorities again on Sunday, July 1st because he was “freaking out” over having to return his son to Evans and Eason.
“I received my child and he has marks all over him,” Griffith said in the 911 call obtained from Columbus County Emergency Services in North Carolina. “I have pictures from the day I picked him up from yesterday… there is bruising now.” He explained how he found the bruises when he was wiping his butt. “That’s when we saw the marks,” he said. “We asked him about it and he said David hit him with a stick.”
Then on Tuesday, July 3, Evans and Eason picked up Kaiser from Griffith’s mother Doris Davidson’s home with a police escort. Davidson has custody of Kaiser for her son. “Words can’t express how devastated we are,” Lanhardt exclusively told Radar. “David is a disgusting excuse for a human.”
Eason posted a video of the exchange on Instagram live. In the video, he taunted Davidson as she handed Kaiser to Evans. “Say bye to grandma Kaiser… Bye Doris, you’re so lovely,” he said. “She said get off her property. She’s going to have me arrested! F**king ugly b***h. Try to take my kid away from me again!”
“The way he taunted Doris on IG live, he is truly a sad soul,” Lanhardt said. “Doris was terrified.”
In the video, Eason slammed Griffith for not being with his son as Davidson made the exchange. “Guess who is not here? Nathan! He don’t give a f**k. He don’t give a s**t. Where is Nathan? Where is dad?”
Lanhardt explained of his absence, “We had my car in South Carolina and I had to work this week,” she said. “We got home to Florida at 5am Monday morning. Nate got his vehicle and freshened up and was driving back to South Carolina when it all happened. He had to watch it from his car. We thought him being gone for less than a day wouldn’t affect anything.”
