Leah Messer-Calvert and Corey Simms, for a long time, seemed like they had it together for their girls.
They remained fairly amicable throughout the whole divorce (and beyond) for Ali and Aleeah’s sake—until now.
Not long ago, Leah asked Corey for more child support when their insurance would not cover the wheelchair for their daughter.
According to a source for In Touch Weekly, this was a low blow for Corey: “A few months ago, Leah asked Corey for more money, and it really pissed him off.”
Apparently, Leah already has plenty of financial help from her new husband, Jeremy Calvert, a pipeline engineer. However, during an episode of Teen Mom, Leah admitted that she has a spending problem. This is what really set off Corey.
“To get back at her, he asked for full custody of Ali and Aleeah — and used her recent prescription-medication use as grounds as well,” the source confirmed.
Using her dark past really felt like an incredibly low blow to Leah, especially because she feels he knows she is a good mom. “She couldn’t believe that Corey would stoop so low, especially since he knows that she’s a good mom.”
Though she has taken pills in the past to “calm her nerves,” she has since cleaned up her act and the source told In Touch Weekly, “She’s sober now.”
