The custody battle between Jenelle Evans and her ex-fiancé Nathan Griffith is getting even nastier. The Teen Mom 2 dad exclusively revealed to RadarOnline.com that he hasn’t seen his 4-year-old son in over a month.

“Every time I start heading up early to see my son there is always a reason I can’t see him,” Griffith told Radar. “I was half way there and she told me he’s sick. Every single time he’s sick. She tells me she needs to take him to the doctor.”

“I drive 10 hours to see my son,” Griffith, who often visits girlfriend Ashley Lanhardt in Florida, told Radar. “A couple of times I’ve waited until my mom says she has Kaiser. It’s crazy.”

Griffith filed a motion to modify custody for his son Kaiser with Evans in July 2018.

“Nothing happens in mediation,” he said. “She wants one thing, I want another. We are in court this time for custody. I have my lawyer. All I can do right now is let her have him.”

Griffith’s girlfriend explained how their custody agreement states if Kaiser is sick he must remain with the parent he is currently with.

“That’s why she always uses that excuse,” Lanhardt said.

Griffith also turned to Twitter to express his outrage.

“You try to paint me as a bad father but Kaiser has been chronically sick for the past year… there’s a problem,” he tweeted. “Let me see my son and stop playing games!”

He added, “Say the storm is a hoax but then you drive around town in flood water with the kids endangering them. Say you have plenty of food but then you get free food as you make over 300K per season. Everyone sees that you’re a walking contradiction and a habitual liar.”

In Griffith’s court filing, he claimed Evans’ husband is “violent” and a “danger” to Kaiser. “Plaintiff and spouse have drug dependence and substance abuse issues,” the motion read.

According to the Columbus County Clerk of Court, 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 the claim.

Griffith is requesting full legal and physical custody of Kaiser, with Evans getting secondary custody in form of visitation. He is also asking the spouse be prohibited from contacting the minor child.

In June, Griffith called police to report Evans and Eason when he noticed bruises on his son’s butt. He was forced to return his son to Evans days later on July 3.
