Jenelle Evans has been burning up the dial-up Internet over on The Land this week, vague-tweeting about being a “scared little girl” who was basically forced to give her mother, Barbara Evans, custody of her son Jace shortly after he was born in 2009. She also spent some time blasting a certain someone whom she claims “played the Internet,” and used funds that were supposed to be used for a custody court lawyer for a boob job instead.
Finally, Jenelle informed her Twitter followers that, while she was frequently shown partying and leaving Jace with Barb during the early years of Teen Mom 2, she only did so because Barb and the show’s producers encouraged her to do so!
Let’s breakdown the straight-from-the-swamp social media spilling, shall we?
First, let’s tackle Jenelle accusing a certain unnamed individual of swindling the Interwebs out of money that was meant to go to her custody lawyer.
“Instead of using that money for custody court you got yourself a boob job,” Jenelle tweeted. “Wow, you played everyone on the Internet.”
She then tweeted, “Can’t wait to tell your son one day.” (In typical Jenelle fashion, she instantly deleted that tweet after posting it.)
While Jenelle never specified who the busty Internet bamboozler is, it is well-known that one of David’s other baby mamas, Olivia Leedham, raised over $6,000 in 2019 via a GoFundMe in order to pay for a custody court lawyer who could fight to keep her son Kaden away from his dad, David. (As of press time, David does not see Kaden.)
Later that day, Jenelle let her followers know that she is on the hunt for a good custody lawyer. However, only serious lawyers need apply, as she stated that the ones she’s been contacting over the years have failed to even get back to her.
“If anyone is a good custody lawyer around the Wilmington, NC, please send me suggestions. Thanks!” she posted to Instagram Stories. “I need serious lawyers. The ones we’ve contacted do not return any calls.”
(In 2020, Olivia was asked on social media if she did, indeed, use the money to plump her bosom, as Jenelle suggested. Olivia denied the accusations, writing, “Absolutely not! I have a conscious! I am the most honest and blunt person you’ll ever meet! All the money that was raised went straight to my attorney for him to hold and use for our case for Kaden.”
Jenelle’s Twittering did not stop there, however. When someone brought up the fact that Jenelle didn’t have room to bash anyone, and accused her of spending her money on heroin instead of to fight her mother Barbara in court for custody of Jace. (Barb still maintains full legal custody of Jace, who is now 12. She has had custody of him since Jace was a baby.)
“Instead of using all your money on heroin you could have been getting custody of your son. Drugs or boobs? Boobs win!” the person tweeted.
Jenelle— whom we all watched get HIGH! HIGH! on various heroin and other drugs with Kieffer, get into fights, get arrested and commit other assorted HIGHjinks on ‘Teen Mom 2’ for years— also stated that she only did drugs for a mere three months.
“I swear if you do drugs for 3 months of your whole life people will try and use it against you forever,” Jenelle wrote. “There’s a pending case going on. You’re an idiot. But I’m not talking about my custody case.”

(Several people on Twitter responded by reminding Jenelle that her daughter, Ensley– who was born in 2017- was born with THC in her system, which means Jenelle was actively using at least marijuana years after the “three months” in question.)
Still, Jenelle insisted that her drug use had nothing to do with her losing custody of Jace.
“I gave my mom temp. custody when I was 17…it had nothing to do with drugs and everything to do with being a fearful little girl [who] felt like I would lose if I fought against my mom,” she tweeted.
On Thursday, Jenelle continued defending herself on Twitter. After denying that she was ever physically abusive to Barb, Jenelle claimed that Barb encouraged her to “go have fun” with her friends instead of staying home with Jace. She stated that Barbara even told her to go ahead and sleepover Tori‘s (or whatever trashbag friend Jenelle was hanging with at the time) house.
However, Jenelle claims that Barb’s offer was all a trick.
“Arrived home the next day to CPS in the driveway and someone saying to them, ‘I don’t know where Jenelle is! She left and never came home!'” Jenelle wrote. “CPS: ‘Sign him over to your mom or he’s going to foster care.’ Was I convinced or threatened to sign or did I really want to?
“Bet none of you knew that,” she continued. “Was it ever aired on TV? No. I’m sick of the truth being hidden from the public. I deserve to have my son back. Don’t trust anyone with custody unless you truly can…as a 17-year-old with a court-appointed lawyer, she did not care about my case at all and didn’t fight for me. I should have fought harder but yes I was terrified.”
She also insinuated that she was shown partying so much during the early years of ‘Teen Mom 2’ because the show’s producers encouraged her to do so.
“And all the times I was ‘out partying’ on MTV…WHO TOLD ME TO GO PARTY?” Jenelle tweeted. “Who wanted that footage? THEM.”
On Thursday, Jenelle informed her Twitter followers that she’s only opening up now about all this because, “the little girl in me is still very hurt and angry,” she wrote. “Haunting memories really suck and to think it’s still happening, but I won’t give up.”
Barbara and/or the ‘Teen Mom 2’ producers have not yet responded to the claims Jenelle made against them in her tweet fest.
