In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Nathan’s older brother, Noah, expressed his desire to adopt his nephew to join his wife and two children.
He said: “I have seen him four times in the last two to three months. More than I have seen him in awhile. It hurts my heart when he leaves. The kid is very intelligent, but seeks attention and he believes the only way to get that attention is to do something bad.
“He rather be in trouble because that way someone is paying him attention. It sucks.”
Noah, 35, added that while he “can’t speak on Jenelle’s mother skills,” as he does not communicate with her or her husband, David Eason, he “can only go by what Kaiser tells” him.
He continued: “The things he has told me is the reason I would want him to live with me.
“I care about his safety – not saying he is in danger – his schooling and his treatment as a young man.”
When asked if Nathan is a good father, Noah replied, “no comment.”
Noah, who lives in Tennessee, added: “Young boys are very influenced by male influences. I am able to teach him the right way to where in my opinion he doesn’t have that opportunity at the moment.”
When asked if Noah will take legal action to adopt Kaiser, he said: “Nathan gets upset when I inquire about it. If there was a way, I would. Right now it’s not an option unfortunately, but I pray it never has to be an option either.”
Noah added: “I want my nephew to have all the opportunities that any other kid in America has. My wife and I can provide him with a normal and awesome chance at just that.
“That whole situation frustrates me.”
Noah initially spoke out about Kaiser over Facebook.
He wrote: “Pray for Kaiser! I do everyday! He is my nephew and I have asked Nate to please let me adopt him multiple and I mean multiple times. So if they read this I have finally put it out there publicly that I would love nothing more than to take Kaiser into our loving secure and more than financially stable home!”
Noah continued his brother is “not a good parent.”
He added: “When he is here he begs us not to take him back to anyone. Cries and it breaks my heart every time. Y’all start a movement for Kaiser to be with us!”
Jenelle opened up about Kaiser's behavior on her YouTube series Addicted to Growth.
The JE Cosmetics owner said: "Kaiser had a really hard time at school in North Carolina. He was in his first school and got kicked out.
"In the second school, he basically got kicked out, wouldn't behave. And when we got to Tennessee, he started school again.
“Luckily, he got to picked up by the bus and brought to school, I just had to bring him to the apartment complex but he was bad on the bus and when he got to school, he was bad in school and things weren't going that great and they would call me every other day to come pick him up.”
Jenelle then revealed that because of Kaiser's behavior, she also had a tough time co-parenting with his birth dad.
She said: "Not to throw Nathan under the bus but I contacted Nathan like four or five times, asking if he could help me control Kaiser and control his anger and Nathan was like 'I'm in Florida, I don't know what to do.’”
Nathan admitted on Facebook that he has previously seen "red flags" when it comes to his son's behavior.
He shared: "I'll set the record straight. No one is perfect. Kaiser loves being with his father.
"Do I already see certain red flags in his behavior? Yes. That's where I sit down and talk to him and explain why his negative behavior can cause him consequences in the future.
"I do not let ANY ONE raise their voice(s) around both of my children when I'm present including family members. If anyone has seen me around my children they immediately fall in love with my hands on 'daddy mode' I go into.”
Nathan continued: "I LOVE CHILDREN and especially my own. I LOVE BEING A DAD! I might be a crappy person and have made tons of mistakes but if there is one thing I'm good at… it's being a FATHER!
"And I'll let no one take that away from me. For my family members chiming in on a half baked reality show that I haven't been on for three years… SMH how disappointing.”
Jenelle has also revealed her son Jace, 11, with ex Andrew Lewis also has behavior issues, as she filed for primary custody against her mother Barbara.
In the custody court filing obtained by The Sun, Jenelle claimed there has been a “substantial change in circumstances affecting the welfare of the minor child” that warrants a change in the custody agreement.
The former Teen Mom 2 star claimed Jace is “at risk of bodily injury” in the care of his grandmother, which is why she is filing for emergency custody.
Jenelle alleged Jace has had “increasingly worse behavior problems that cause him to be physically aggressive, out of control and unsafe.”
The YouTuber claimed Barbara told her she “cannot control the minor child’s behaviors.”
Barbara was instructed by his health care provider “multiple times” to call a crisis hotline or go to the Emergency Department if Jace’s “aggression escalates,” Jenelle alleged in the filing.
Jenelle, who signed over custody of Jace to her mom to 2010, noted an alleged December 19, 2020 incident where Jace and Barbara “argued throughout the day.”
The court papers claimed: “The minor child physically assaulted [Barbara] twice causing injury to [Barbara.] The Minor child also burned the carpet because he was angry with [Barbara].
“The minor child has a history of starting fires in the home of [Barbara].”
Jenelle claimed her mother “did not contact the crisis line or seek any treatment or professional help for the minor child during this incident.”
The JE Cosmetics owner alleged Barbara reached out to Jenelle for help with Jace.
Jenelle claimed that on December 20, 2020, she picked up Jace to bring him to live with her primarily at the consent of Barbara.
Jenelle, who is also mom to daughter Ensley, 4, with husband David Eason, said Jace’s behavior “improves substantially” in her care and that they “do not struggle with conflict or aggression.”
She said her son stayed with her until January 18, 2021, when Barbara allegedly backed out on their new custody agreement for Jace to live with her full time and demanded he be returned to her home.
The filing continued: “[Barbara] cannot manage the minor child’s behavior without assistance from [Jenelle] and the conflict in [Barbara’s home] has resulted in domestic violence between [Barbara] and [Jace].
“It is not safe or healthy for the minor child to remain in the custody of [Barbara] as [Barbara] is not properly treating the minor child’s mental health or managing his behaviors.”
Jenelle said she is “fit and proper” to have sole legal and physical custody of Jace, while Barbara is “not fit and proper to have the care, custody and control of [Jace] due to her lack of ability to properly care for the child and ensure he has a safe home environment.”
She asked for any visitation between Barbara and Jace to be “therapeutic in nature until they are able to appropriately manage the conflict in their relationship.”
