Jenelle Spoke Out About Ongoing Custody Battle in October

According to Entertainment Tonight, Jenelle “signed over temporary custody” of her eldest son to her mother in 2010. In the years following her decision, Jenelle has been vocal about wanting to regain primary custody of Jace.

In October 2022, Jenelle spoke candidly about her ongoing custody battle with Barbara in a TikTok.

The mother-of-three made a video in response to a fan comment that read, “POV you grew up and you realized Jace was always meant to be with Barb.”

“Comments like this is exactly why I don’t want to share my life anymore,” she began.

“Jace should be living with me,” she continued. “There’s a pending court case going on.”

“If there [is] no problem with someone having their child, they should have them,” she told her followers.
