We have a new update on the ongoing saga of Jenelle Evans’ troubled 14-year-old son, Jess Evans.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Jace had fled the home of his grandmother, Barbara Evans, where he had been living since being removed from custody of Jenelle by CPS.
Jess ran away from Janelle’s house several times after she regained custody of the boy in March.
In September, Jess was placed back in Barbara’s care after Jenelle’s husband David Eason accused her of assaulting him.
Obviously, it’s been a tumultuous year for the teen, and there have been widespread concerns about his safety and well-being.
It may be some time before Jace tells his side of the story, but a new report from TMZ indicates that Jenelle’s son is currently safe and being provided for well.
According to the outlet, Jace has been booked into a hospital at an undisclosed location.
Due to his runaway tendencies and the fact that no one in his family is able to provide him with the level of care and supervision he needs, Jace will be placed in foster care after being released from the medical facility where he was raised. Currently living. ,
It is unclear whether the teen is being treated for physical or mental health problems or a combination thereof.
Whatever the case, the latest developments involving Jess have sparked another round of conflict within her family.
Janelle has once again gone on the offensive against Barbara, criticizing her on social media and accusing her mother of failing to properly care for Jace.
At one point, Evans shared a meme that showed Cardi B teasing her haters, along with the caption:
“When the weapons deployed against you are not succeeding.”
Evans said, “Oh yes, if you only knew.”
Needless to say, this is a strange attitude for Jenelle to adopt amidst the news that her son has been hospitalized and will soon be placed in foster care.
At least one insider believes the blame for Jace’s current troubles still rests squarely on Jenelle’s shoulders.
A source close to the situation told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, “When Jess was at Barbara’s, she was unable to get proper medications, because Jenelle still had the power to deny her access to certain medications.”
Janelle clearly believes she has won some kind of victory over her mother.
But we feel like there is no winner in this situation.
And concern over the future of the Jays is currently at an all-time high.
We will have further updates on this developing story as new information becomes available.
