Jenelle’s mom Barbara currently has custody of her young son Jace. One of Jenelle’s close friends says that may be exactly the way that Jenelle likes it. She says she wants him back living with her and to have legal custody of Jace, but is she telling the truth?
The friend admits that Jenelle is “great with Jace,” and that he’s so happy when he’s with her, but says that the teen mom is missing out on vital mother-son bonding. She says it would be weird for the boy to suddenly live with his mother when she has her life back together, since the friend is predicting that Jenelle will not be in a fit state to be sole parent to him for years yet.
The frend, who recently spoke to Star magazine on the subject, says the toddler may be safer living in the stable home of his grandmother.
“It’s not Jace’s fault he was born to Jenelle,” the friend said.
And according to her, Barbara did not take guardianship of him for Jenelle; she did it for Jace.
It may suit Jenelle very well, though, to be free of responsibilities and baby care duties. She is currently obsessed with boys and lapping up their attention. It’s not really the attention of boys as young as Jace that’s she’s interested in.
