AceShowbiz - Jenelle Evans knows her children's love for her is unconditional, but she may have taken it for granted. The former MTV reality TV star, who has been separated from her three children amid ongoing custody fight, has received backlash following her recent comment about a child's love.
The 27-year-old took to Instagram on Wednesday, June 5 to show off a necklace that her son Kaiser recently gave her. "It's the little things in life. With everything that has been going on lately, I've come to realize a child's love for their mother will never fade," she claimed in the comment.
She added, "No distance, not time, no person can change that special love. This necklace was given to me by my little bubba, Kaiser. He told me he wanted mommy to 'match his'. My children are the sweetest and the best."
But her post backfires as people claimed that she didn't show the same love for her children. "This is why u don't choose any man over your children," one wrote, referring to Jenelle's decision to stay with her husband David Eason whose violent actions caused her to lose custody of her three children.
Another similarly reminded the former "Teen Mom 2" star, "That sweet child chose you over anyone. Wish you could've said the same." Someone else chimed in, "They may love you no matter what but that doesn't mean they'll like you & doesn't mean they'll forget the hell you put them through."
Jenelle is currently fighting to regain custody of her three children, Jace, 9, Kaiser, 4, and Ensley, 2. The kids were removed from her house in May after David shot and killed their family dog, Nugget. The incident also led to Jenelle getting fired from the MTV reality series.
On Tuesday, June 4, Jenelle returned to court, where she was caught having a nasty spat with her mother Barbara. The mother and daughter were arguing outside of a North Carolina courthouse as Jenelle refused to let go of her daughter Ensley when Barbara was about to leave with the girl. Barbara currently has custody of Ensley and Jace, Jenelle's son with ex Andrew Lewis.
Jenelle is only allowed to see her children during supervised visits once a week. Speaking to E! News, she says it's hard to see her kids at court but not able to take them home with her. "It's really hard holding my emotions together when your child doesn't want to let you go, but if you don't hold it together and break down it will make the child more concerned and upset," she shares.
