Jenelle Evans' boyfriend thinks her mother needs to grow up

Jenelle Evans' mom has done a lot for her.

After she failed to step up to the plate and raise her first son, Jace Vahn Evans, Barbara stepped in, taking over custody and raising him as her own. Even now, four years later, Barbara is still responsible for Jace and has custody of the child.

Unfortunately, Jenelle hasn't done a great job in showing her appreciate to Barbara and her boyfriend, Nathan Griffith, the father of her second son, has been downright rude.

In addition to feuding with Barbara on "Teen Mom 2" and blaming her for Jenelle's addiction to heroin, Griffith has spoken out in a new interview, claiming that Barbara isn't a great mom to Jace -- and that she hasn't grown up herself.

“We definitely have our differences. I want custody of Jace. He listens to me, and I’m a good role model for him. She just yells at him,” Griffith alleged to OK! Magazine, according to a July 18 report by Starcasm.

In the interview, Griffith said that he was hoping to get custody of Jace in order to provide him with a “more structured and understanding home.”

“When he’s with Barbara, it gives me an unsettled feeling in my stomach,” Griffith claimed. “I love her and I respect her, but she hasn’t grown up yet — and I don’t like that.”

Meanwhile, Griffith's daughter, Emery, 2, is all but missing in action. Although Griffith has been seen and photographed with her a handful of times, rumor has it that he only requested to see her once a month -- and he rarely sees her that much.
