Teen Mom 2’s Jenelle Evans is heading to court in an effort to straighten out her life (insert joke here), with priority #1 being to gain custody of her son Jace.
Just a few days after breaking up with Gary Head and deleting her Twitter account (@PBandJenelly), she’s hoping for a clean slate as she meets with a judge.
Jenelle Evans wants a judge to let her off probation completely, then plans to seek custody of her Jace, currently under control of her mother Barbara.
“Jenelle is trying to straighten her life out and the first step she’s taking is requesting that a judge let her out of probation,” her attorney Dustin Sullivan said.
“Jenelle has actually been doing really well,” Sullivan added. “She is doing everything she is supposed to do and I’ve seen a big improvement in her life.”
After breaking up with her boyfriend because of alleged abuse, Sullivan said he encouraged Jenelle to take down her Twitter and she took his advice.
Her only goal now is to rebuild that relationship with Jace, Sullivan adds.
“Nothing has been filed but Jenelle has expressed interest in getting custody of Jace back,” he said. “She would really like to have Jace back with her.”
That would mark a dramatic reversal from what we’ve seen on Teen Mom 2, in which Jenelle fights and yells a lot but is rarely even seen with the tyke.
Sullivan said his oft-troubled 20-year-old client would be heading to court April 24 to make the request and he is hopeful that the judge will agree.
