Jenelle claims that Barbara forced her biological father, Robert Evans, to leave the family's home after he fell down the stairs while holding a young Jenelle. However, Babs is telling a different story. Jenelle's mother says that her daughter doesn't really have any idea about the things that happened in the family before she was born, or when she was young.

Jenelle doesn't know half the story says her mother

Barbara Evans told Radar Online that Jenelle doesn't even know "half of the story" of her life and that she was only 3-years-old when her father left, so she likely doesn't even remember much about the divorce. Babs says she's tied "sick and tired" of the "Teen Mom 2" star revealing family drama and secrets in her book. While Jenelle admits she was too young to remember what type of man her father way, but she did reveal that her siblings told her he was a "mean drunk" who allegedly physically abused Barbara during their marriage.

The battle over Jace

The two are currently duking it out through the court system. #Reality TV
