Leah Messer’s Fiance Jeremy Calvert: I Paid For The Ring, Not MTV

January 06, 2012 08:12 AM by Shayla Perry

Did MTV foot the bill for Leah Messer‘s 1.5 carat princess-cut diamond engagement ring? Not according to Jeremy Calvert. With speculation that the couple’s Christmas engagement and surprise baby news are merely part of a scheme to make money, Calvert took to Twitter to address the haters and clear up any confusion about how he makes his dough. Keep reading for all the details.

Some may think that Jeremy Calvert had a little help from some friends at MTV to pay for the princess-cut diamond ring he presented to Leah Messer when he proposed on Christmas day, but the hubby (and baby daddy)-to-be says the network had no part in the purchase of Messer’s ring…not even indirectly.

“[U]mm FYI I don’t make a penny from MTV my own money bought it!” 22-year-old Jeremy tweeted on January 4th when pressed by Twitter users about his big purchase.

So, what does he do to make that money if he’s not on the Teen Mom 2 payroll?

“I work 6 to 7 days a week outside in the cold to make my money and I’ll spend it how I want.”

Enough said.

But there are still rumors that the couple’s engagement and Leah’s pregnancy are all part of a larger plan to cash in by selling wedding photos and interviews to a number of media outlets.

This will be the second marriage for Teen Mom’s Leah Messer. She was previously married to Corey Simms, the father of her two-year-old twins Aleeah and Aliannah. Their divorce was finalized in the summer of 2011.

    Hold on a moment. It is only 1.5 carats that is very affordable to anyone who has $15,000.

    Are you kidding me. Please, that girl has led nothing but a private life off screen and everyone else is trying to make her out to be a horrible persons. When I say people I mean trashy magazines and blog sites. Get a life and stop hating people you don’t know. Trashy magazine and blog site.

    Maybe Farah should have been giving fellow Teen mom, Leah advice instead of poking in Kourtney Kardashians business. Leah is a mess. She needed to stop way long ago.

    I think someone like her “Mother” needs to have a sit down with her. Tell her she is moving to fast. She has plenty of time to remarry and make babies. This show “Teen Mom” has made these girls think they are famous for spreading their legs. It scares me to think other teens watch it and see the glamour these girls are getting and are going to try and do the same. You can see each season at the “things” they have done to their bodies. From nose jobs to breast implants. What gets me is that they cannot afford nothing but a trailer to raise their children in but they can afford cosmetic surgery!! That there shows they still dont have priorities in order. Leah believes she needs a man to function. From season one she was with 2 different men and was preggo the first month or 2 after dating Corey. Then she’s had many other after the fact. So sad to see someone so young want to rush life and marry multiple times and have babies so soon.

    This girl has got to be the smartest one of the whole bunch. She was lucky enough to trap a hard working dumb hillbilly, get pregnant, and make him stay home while she runs around on him twice. Then complains when basically he wont quit his job to take care of the babies and go to the dr visits. Hes not the one so runs off to the next hard working hillbilly who in fact enjoys getting famous and is all for it. Gets pregnant after 4 months and rushes to get a ring. Let me tell you this chick is getting paid. MTV and the tabloids are for right now. After its all said and done these baby daddys are going to get the the shaft right along with the tax payers. So i say to you enjoy the pretty skank you will be paying for her and her kids later.
