After Barbara was seen telling producers that Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, was “hurting [Jenelle] and keeping her a prisoner,” the mother of three spoke out about their current relationship.
“She’s mad because David was fired from MTV,” Barbara told producers on Monday’s show. “Why are you blaming the whole world for that? It’s nobody’s fault but his own. I think it’s the call, and now people are calling her out on it and people are saying what happened and she doesn’t know how to turn that around.”
Barbara’s comments were made after Jenelle sent a text message to her producers during Monday’s episode of Teen Mom 2 in which she demanded they leave her alone after David, who was fired in February of last year, refused to allow her to film.
“Maybe she needs to lose everything. Maybe if she loses everything, she can walk away from him,” Barbara said in regard to Jenelle’s failure to return to filming at her husband’s request.
After seeing what her mom had said, Jenelle took to her Instagram Stories, where she responded to her comments and confirmed she and her mother no longer have a civil relationship.
“Well there goes me and mom moms (sic) relationship once again. #OutTheWindow,” she wrote.
Earlier this month on the show, Jenelle’s October 2018 911-call against her husband was aired for viewers to hear.
“My husband, he assaulted me. He pinned me down on the ground in the yard. I think I heard my f*cking collarbone crack. I can’t move my arm. … All I know is that my collarbone hurts so bad,” Jenelle cried to the operator.
While Jenelle sounded quite upset, and quite injured, at the time, she later wrote off the incident as a “drunk misunderstanding” and Barbara accepted the explanation in an effort to remain in contact with her daughter.
Jenelle and Barbara began filming with one another during production on season nine after previously being estranged due to their ongoing feud over David and the way he treats Jenelle and her family. According to the report, the women reconciled their relationship after bonding over Jenelle’s contentious custody battle with Nathan Griffith over their four-year-old son Kaiser.
Teen Mom 2 season nine airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on MTV.
