Leah Messer, 23, and Corey Simms’ custody battle has taken a giant turn — and not in favor of the Teen Mom 2 mommy. A West Virginia judge reportedly gave Corey primary custody of the former spouses’ twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, 5.
Corey has officially gotten what he always wanted, a peace of mind. Leah’s ex-husband “was awarded primary custody, effective immediately” on Oct. 13, a source tells In Touch. That doesn’t mean their mom can’t have them at all. In fact, “Leah only gets the girls on the weekends now,” the insider added.
It all started to go down hill for Leah when Corey first fought for custody of their girls in 2014 after multiple reports claimed that Leah was abusing prescription pills. Corey even threw the addiction problem in her face during the TM2 reunion. Even though the judge ruled in her favor after a negative drug test, she went off to rehab. So, clearly she hadn’t been telling the entire truth. It seems to have caught up with her, because the report also states, “Leah’s really been screwing up since then, so Corey took her back to court. The judge looked at the girls’ school records, which show that they’ve been late for school, and made the change in custody.”
The question is, will Leah’s other ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, also try to seek primary custody of their daughter, Addie, 2? It wouldn’t be surprising. The source says, “Everyone is very worried about Addie. She recently wandered out of the house while Leah was distracted. Thankfully, a police officer found Addie and brought her back home.” The issues with Leah’s parenting just continue to spew out.
