MTV‘s Leah Messer may have moved on with fiance Jeremy Calvert following her divorce, but according to friends, the Teen Mom star’s ex-husband and baby daddy, Corey Simms has yet to do the same, despite his relationship with Summer Tavarez. Is he still in love with Leah?
“Corey still has feelings for Leah,” a source close to the MTV reality star tells Us Weekly. “She is the only girl he ever really loved.”
Messer, who’s currently engaged to new beau Jeremy Calvert, has obviously made a new life for herself since her divorce; something that Simms is struggling to do.
“Corey is trying to move forward with his life, just as Leah has done,” says the insider. “He is trying hard to get over her.”
In the time that they were together, Corey and Leah had their share of ups and downs. The two dated for a month before finding out that Messer was pregnant. After the birth of their twins – Aleeah and Aliannah – the couple split, only to reunite six months later. Once they moved in together, Simms proposed and he and Leah were married on October 17, 2010.
Messer filed for divorce in April of 2011.
“Corey wishes his marriage would have worked out but he knows it’s over,” the friend explains. “He knows in his heart he did all he could do to make it work. He is staying busy working on his new house trying to get it ready for his girls.”
