Facebook fans often struggle to decide whether the mothers or the fathers featured on Teen Mom are worse. Often, this debate comes out in a wash, with both parents engaging in their fair share of irresponsible behavior. This time, it looks like it will be up to a judge to decide whether Leah Messer-Calvert or Corey Simms is the better parent, as the two are about to enter a huge custody battle.
Leah Messer-Calvert could stand to learn a thing or two from former prescription drug abuser Amber Portwood! Although the reality star claims that her pill popping is under control, recent Twitter rumors suggest otherwise. The star’s past druge abuse may soon come to haunt her, as baby daddy Corey Simms is threatening to use it as evidence in an upcoming custody case.
The current drama began a few months ago, when Leah — who is notorious for her financial irresponsibility — asked Corey for money. This angered the celeb’s former beau, as he is well aware of her often extravagant lifestyle. Add this to the fact that Leah is currently supported by hardworking hubby Jeremy Calvert and you have a recipe for disaster! According to a source for In Touch, Corey decided to get back at Leah the way he knew would hurt most. “[Corey] asked for full custody of Ali and Aleeah — and used [Leah's] recent prescription medication use as grounds as well.”
Leah was shocked by Corey’s approach, in part, because “she’s sober now.” The reality star believes that she deserves custody of her kids, because “she is a good mom.”
Do you think Corey Simms’ petition for child custody will prove successful? Sound off in the comments section below!
