The reality star, 29 — who suffers from bipolar and borderline personality disorders — was arrested on felony domestic battery on July 5 after an altercation with boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

After her release from Marion County Jail in Indiana the next day, a court ordered the TV personality to stay away from Glennon, who is seeking full custody of James. In the meantime, she is staying at her mom Tonya’s house.

While they pair are “still not allowed to communicate,” adds the source, “the situation seems to have calmed down a bit.”
