Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Reunion: 10 Most Shocking Revelations
6. Jenelle’s Feuds
From 16 and Pregnant on, fans who have been following Jenelle’s story know just how tumultuous things have always been between herself and her mother Barbara, but at the reunion, she opened up about issues she had with her son Kaiser’s grandmother Doris, who is her ex Nathan’s mom. After reports that Doris wanted temporary custody of him, Jenelle revealed that she was the one who had concerns first after finding a “hand bruise on Kaiser’s butt from Nathan.” She added that when she brought it up to Doris, Doris immediately blamed Jenelle and David, and when Dr. Drew asked if David uses spanking as a form of punishment, backstage David got upset. As Dr. Drew talked to Jenelle about her attraction to aggressive men and tried talking to her about David’s behavior, David grew increasingly angry with Dr. Drew and finally walked out.
5. Doris Speaks Out
With Nathan’s struggles with the law and alcohol abuse, it has been his mother Doris who has taken over the duties of getting Kaiser for his visitations, and after Jenelle’s talk with Dr. Drew and Jenelle and David storming off set, Doris decided it was time to speak up. In an unplanned visit, Doris came out while Nathan was speaking with Dr. Drew and revealed that Kaiser had told her that David had punched him, and also said she thought there was drug abuse happening in Jenelle and David’s home. She added that she had already filed for temporary custody in an effort to protect her grandson, and revealed that Jenelle didn’t start accusing her of abuse until after she told Jenelle she was going to start documenting how Kaiser looked when she picked him up and how he looked when he left.
