On July 24, 2018, Griffith filed a motion to modify custody for his son Kaiser with baby mama Evans. The Ashley’s Reality Roundup was the first to report on the motion.
According to a clerk for Columbus County Court, Griffith claimed Evans’ spouse David Eason is “violent” and “a danger” to the minor child. “Plaintiff and spouse have drug dependency and substance abuse issues,” the motion read. “Jenelle is frequently in criminal trouble and has been arrested over 20 times.” Jenelle has been in rehab “two to three times” and has “never completed the prescribed treatment.”
According to the clerk, Griffith claimed, "the minor child in question, as well as another of the Plaintiff’s children, did test positive for THC at birth.” A source close to Evans denied Kaiser tested positive for THC.
Griffith, 30, has entered a “romantic relationship” with Ashley Lanhardt, who the minor child has a “significant" and "beneficial bond.”
Griffith is requesting full legal and physical custody of Kaiser, with Evans getting secondary custody in form of visitation. “Plaintiff’s spouse is prohibited from contacting the minor child,” the clerk explained.
The filing comes one day after Evans was caught on camera pulling a gun out on another driver during a road rage incident on Teen Mom 2. Her son Jace, 8, was sitting in the front seat at the time. On the episode, her mom Barbara, who has custody of Jace, told Griffith, “We got to get these kids out of that house. This is bad. We’re going to court to get him out of his house. This is serious s**t. We need to get Kaiser out.”
Back in June, Griffith called police to report Evans and Eason when he noticed bruises on Kaiser's 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. "We asked him about it and he said David hit him with a stick.” Kaiser was returned to Evans and Eason on July 3.
The custody case began in September 2017 when Griffith’s mom Doris Davidson, who has custody of Kaiser for her son, filed an emergency request for full custody of the little one. She accused Evans of testing positive for marijuana at the time of her daughter Ensley’s birth. She also accused Evans and Eason of neglect and abuse. We pay for juicy info!
