16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans has lost a tense custody battle with her estranged mother Barbara.

Jenelle’s eldest son, seven-year-old Jace, has been in the primary care of Barbara for majority of his life, as the teen mum was known as a 'party girl'. 


Now, after a lengthy custody battle, the case has finally been settled with Barbara reportedly walking away with majority custody.

It's not all bad news for Jenelle, however, with the reality star granted extended visitation rights, including during the summer, on holidays and weekends. 

“I’m not restricted to when my mum says I can have my son… At the moment that’s all I care about. [I] just want to spend time with my son.

“He will be home one day, but today wasn’t the day, sadly.”

Jenelle is mother to seven-year-old Jace (father: Andrew Lewis), and has two other children, two-year-old Kaiser (of whom she is currently having another ongoing custody battle over with ex-fiancé, Nathan Griffith) and newborn baby girl Ensley Jolie (father and current fiancé: David Eason).
