Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans’ beleaguered mother, Barbara Evans, has always disapproved of her daughter’s reckless lifestyle, including her marriage to David Eason, but now she’s saying she’s afraid David could actually hurt Jenelle.
During a one on one interview with host Drew Pinsky during the filming of the Teen Mom 2 Reunion Special, Dr. Drew acknowledged that Jenelle has had “kind of a rough run lately,” and asked Barbara if she felt like Jenelle was okay. Her response was chilling.
“No,” responded Barbara confidently. “I don’t feel Jenelle is okay. David’s going to hurt her.”
As for Jenelle, when asked about her mother’s concerns for her safety, she fell back on her usual refrain.
“Everything she does is to get back at me,” she told Dr. Drew.
Barbara’s frightening statement comes on the heels of Jenelle’s now infamous road rage incident, in which she pulled a gun on another driver while her son, Jace, 8, was in the car. As reported, her ex-boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, has filed for full custody of their four year old son, Kaiser, citing claims of abuse.
In his court filing, Nathan claimed David was “violent” and is “a danger” to his child. Nathan initially contacted authorities about his concerns back in June, after noticing bruises on Kaiser’s buttocks.
“We asked him about it, and he said David hit him with a stick,” Nathan said during his 911 call.
Nathan and Barbara have recently put their own past differences aside, and joined forces to ensure the safety of Jenelle’s young children. Following the recent incidents, Barbara told Nathan that they needed to remove Kaiser from Jenelle’s custody.
“We need to get these kids out of the house,” she said during a recent episode. “This is bad. We’re going to court to get him out of this house. This is serious s**t. We need to get Kaiser out.”
Nathan is seeking full physical and legal custody of Kaiser, with Jenelle getting secondary custody in the form of visitation, but he is asking that David be “prohibited from contacting the minor child.”
Be sure to watch Barbara, Jenelle, and the rest of the Teen Mom 2 cast on the explosive reunion special.
