Teen Mom 2: moms have hard time with child custody battles


The teenage mothers are back with more tears and arguments on the way. In its premiere of season six alone last July 9, our Teen Moms already had several dramas.

In season five, fans saw that Jenelle Evans is in an unsettled dispute with her mother, Barbara Evans, for custody of her son, Jace. Her mother said that her house, which is being shared with her boyfriend Nathan Griffith, is not a good place for their son to grow. She added that her son misbehaves in school and wets his bed after every visit with Jenelle. As for Jenelle, she said that “I’ve held on for a year and a half and nothing is changing… I gotta do what I gotta do. He’s my son. I’m not going to wait forever,” as noted in International Business Times. However, with this quarrel, along with other disagreements along the way, season six started with Jenelle saying that they have not spoken about the issue.

Speaking of child custody, Corey Simms continued fighting for the care of his daughters, Aliannah and Aleeah, with Leah Messer-Calvert who he does not think fit to look after them. Correy said he was fighting for the best interests of their daughters and complained that the kids are being dropped off late for school or miss physical therapy sessions, Aliannah. In the end, the judge still granted custody to Leah on the condition that she has to take drug test. Leah is annoyed by the accusations but relieved with the decision that she can keep her daughters.

On the other hand, Cole DeBoer, the new boyfriend of Chelsea Houska, debuted in the first episode. However, bliss was short-lived as his ex-husband, Adam Lind, who has just finished prison time, sent a note through his lawyer that he wants 50/50 custody of their daughter Aubree.

Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry and Javie Morroquin had an argument over the guy friend who texted Kailyn. She was supposed to attend a concert with her friends but as the dispute continued, she was left unable to attend the event. Javie thinks she is cheating and lying to him, while Kailyn responds by asking him why he is always insecure. As a compromise, Javie asked her to delete all her passwords but she thinks this is a crazy proposal and said that she might as well not text anybody and change her number, but she is not going to be happy about it.
