Former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans shared a TikTok video and admitted that she was upset when her mother Barbara Evans didn’t reply to a text she sent her on Mother’s Day.

Jenelle and Barbara have not been getting along over the last couple of months as they continue to battle over custody of Jace.

Barbara has maintained custody of Jace since he was an infant, but according to Jenelle, she was having a hard time handling his behavior during the pandemic.

Jace was spending a lot of time at Jenelle’s house to get a change of scenery, and Jenelle misspoke and told fans that she was going to be getting full custody of him soon.

Barbara quickly shut down the claim and said that she was never signing over custody to Jenelle. The two have now been in a battle about it ever since, and the courts are now involved.

Despite all of the drama going on between them, Jenelle reached out to Barbara via text message to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day, but she did not get any response back.

Jenelle then admitted through tears that her feelings were “pretty hurt.”

This recent feud between Barbara and Jenelle is not the first time the mother-daughter pair have been at odds. In the past, Dr. Drew has tried to step in and help them repair their relationship.

Prior to the recent custody battle, it appeared that Barbara and Jenelle were getting along really well.

Time will tell if they’re able to get their relationship back but Jenelle may be ready to move on from that idea.
