Teen Mom Jenelle Evans accused of 'manipulating' son Jace, 12, with 'petty' rules about his Christmas gifts

TEEN Mom 2 alum Jenelle Evans was accused of “manipulating” her son Jace, 12, with "petty" rules about his Christmas gifts.

The 30-year-old's husband, David Eason, was seen playing with Jace's gift without him.

In a new Instagram post shared by Teen Mom fan page Teen Mom Chatter, Jace was shown happily holding up an Oculus that he received for Christmas.

The photo was captioned: “Since they gave Jace the Oculus for Christmas, I’m assuming he could only use it at their house.”

Noting that Jace primarily lives with his grandmother Barbara, the caption continued: “He cannot take it to Babs’ house.

“Just like other big gifts they have given him.

“He only goes over there every other weekend, two weeks in the summer, and some holidays.

“They rest of the time they get to okay with it.

“So who do they really buy it.”

The fan account’s point seemed to be backed up when Jenelle’s husband David, 33, shared a video of himself playing Oculus Quest 2 without Jace.


Many Teen Mom 2 fans agreed that Jenelle seemed to “manipulate” her oldest son.

While taking to the comments section, one MTV fan wrote: “Just more manipulation on Jenelle’s part imo. She intentionally does this stuff to try and entice Jace to want to come to her house, or to live with her.”

Another added: “This is sad. If you give a gift let the child take it and enjoy it. I’m glad my parents were never that petty.”

A third chimed in: "So how is it a gift if he can’t have access to it when he wants? That’s sad why can’t he have it at barb’s?"

The backlash continued as a following fan wrote: "It’s not for him at all if he can only play it 2 times a month. It’s for them to get high and play with like clowns and also to entertain the other kids. She should have bought 2, one for her kids one for jace."


Jenelle was accused of being "petty" just days after she was ripped for waking her kids up to open presents at 4am on Christmas morning.

The mother of three posted a TikTok video of their early morning wake-up to their new items to show off how her family celebrated the holiday.

She wrote in the caption: “#MerryChristmas from our family to yours! We had a great day! #SantaWasHere.”

In the clip, the MTV alum revealed their day started at four in the morning when Jenelle went to show off their lit-up Christmas tree and all the gifts underneath.

Jenelle and David put the final touches – bows – on all of the presents before the kids opened them, as well as the stocking on a coat rack.

By 4:45am, all the kids were all gathered on the carpet floor, diving into their presents.

Each of the kids got a close-up as they checked out their new toys.

Jenelle ended the clip by saying “everyone is happy,” though fans didn’t fully agree with that statement.

A number of fans agrees the kids should not have woken up that early, as one follower wrote: “4:45 am is a bit much lol”

Another commented: “4 am? Hell nope.”

A third said: “Why did you guys wake up at 4am tho”

In addition to Jace, Jenelle is the mother to four-year-old daughter Ensley with David and seven-year-old son Kaiser with ex Nathan Griffith.
