The former Teen Mom star issued a statement to The Hollywood Gossip on Wednesday regarding the ongoing case:
â€œI am currently following what my attorney has asked. I donâ€™t want to speak publicly on the matter currently as that will jeopardize the possibilities of getting my kids back. I love my kids so much and I will do anything necessary to get them back and that is all I want everyone to understand.Â I ask everyone to have an open heart before they judge how the media is portraying me.Â I love being a mother and David and I will get through this. We are staying strong and united.â€
After a ruling by a North Carolina judge, the ex-MTV star has lost temporary custody of her 2-year-old daughter Ensley (Easonâ€™s daughter), 4-year-old son Kaiser, 9-year-old Jace, while David has also lost custody of 11-year-old daughter Maryssa.
AÂ Radar OnlineÂ insider spilled details of what happened in the courthouse:
â€œThe judge told Jenelle that she failed to protect the children while they were in her careâ€¦Â The judge heard testimony that David and Jenelle were constantly screaming and arguing, and the children were terrifiedâ€¦ [Child Protective Services]Â described the state of the home as horrific. It was filthy, and there were holes in all of the wallsâ€¦Â Jenelle was sobbing in courtâ€¦Â Jenelle believed that her lawyer was going to be able to get her children back and she seemed stunned when this happened.â€
The same source added yesterday that â€œJenelle is standing by David. Despite what happened, she has no plans to leave him,â€ which was confirmed in her own statement today.
The TVÂ personalityâ€™s mom,Â Barbara Evans, confirmed toÂ E! NewsÂ that sheÂ has custody of Jace and Ensley, adding:
â€œOf course I would like for Jenelle to get them all back eventually, but certain things have to happen first.â€
Reportedly, Easonâ€™sÂ daughter,Â Maryssa, remains in custody with her motherÂ Whitney Johnson. The controversial couple and their childrenâ€™s current caregivers are due back in court next Tuesday to â€œsee what the next steps are as this is a temporary custody decision.â€
We can only hope Jenelle comes to her senses by thenâ€¦
