Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans speaks out after teenage son Jace ran away for second time

Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans speaks out after teenage son Jace ran away for second time

The Teen Mom star took to TikTok to explain

Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans recently took to TikTok to give fans a bit of an update and make sure they were being properly informed after her son Jace ran away.

Evans was granted full custody of her son earlier this year after more than a decade of Jace being in the care of Jenelle's mother, Barbara, due to previous struggles with a drug addiction and multiple arrests as a preteen.

Jace had left the family home on Monday (28 August) and his mom called the police after a few hours, with him soon being found near the house at a gas station that was only a few minutes journey away from where he lived.

A family representative said the teenager 'went off to the gas station' without telling his mom and had been 'out roaming the property like he usually does'.

Earlier this month, Evans said that her son had run away from home after having his phone taken away for getting 'in trouble at school', but he was a 'good kid' and that she wasn't 'dealing with anything most families don't deal with while raising children'.

Taking to TikTok yesterday (30 August), Jenelle cleared a few things up for people wondering what was going on.

She said: "First of all I didn't run away to Cali, it was a work trip that was planned for months ahead of time. Second of all, I posted that TikTok a week after I got home so really that's from like two weeks ago.

"A lot of you are relating the incident that happened with my son to my work trip which has nothing to do with each other. A lot of my son's actions are being pinned against me, I'm getting a lot of hate, a lot of comments it just keeps going and going and going.

"My son has been having a hard time for the past two, three years. None of this has gone public because we're trying to keep his privacy. Me and my mom when she gave me custody she's like 'oh we're just getting along, I'm just gonna give Jenelle back'.

"There was a big reason behind why I got him back for reasons we're not gonna discuss because like I said it's my son's privacy."

The former Teen Mom star explained all.

"I will say one thing, monitor your kid's phones. If they're teenagers and they have apps, they're on Snapchat, Snapchat's a bad one," the Teen Mom star continued.

"I monitor my kid's phone and sometimes they get in trouble, sometimes they need it taken away for the consequences to their actions. Sometimes they don't take that too lightly and sometimes kids get really mad about their phones if you take them away."

"It's kind of like an addiction to them because they're so attached to it. My son is fine, he's healthy and he's safe."

She declined to go into further detail on the grounds of her son's mental health and asked for the two of them to be given privacy.
