Leah Messer and Corey Simms: It's Really Over!

by at . Comments

The divorce rumors turned out to be true.

Six months after Teen Mom 2 stars Leah Messer and Corey Simms got married, the 18-year-old Leah has filed for divorce, according to Us Weekly.

Though the MTV stars got married to recently, fans of the show shouldn't be too surprised to see Leah, who filed papers last week, split with Corey.

"Everything Corey and I have done has happened so fast," Leah Messer said.

Leah and Corey Split!

After all, the pair dated for one month, found out they were expecting, split up just after the 2009 birth of their twin daughters, then reunited six months later.

From there, it took just weeks for them to move into together and for 20-year-old Simms, a certified water-distribution operator, to propose to Leah Messer.

"I didn't want to jump into something else and be like, 'Oh, s**t! What did we do?'" Messer said, reflecting upon the crazy ride she and Corey have been on.

"Three years ago, before I was pregnant, I never thought I'd be married now. I was scared. A lot of people who marry young end up divorcing within a year."

After all, Messer had seen it happen within her own family.

"My mom and dad married, divorced, remarried and divorced again," she said. "I don't want my girls [Aliannah and Aleeah, 16 months] to go through that."

"My mom talked to me because she wed at 16 and didn't want me to go through a divorce like she did." Is there any chance the girls won't go through it?

Despite the divorce proceedings, friends of the couple hope to see the newlyweds reconcile: "Their friends are hoping they find a way to make it work."

However, a source adds: "They are not in a good place right now."

Another sad, cautionary tale from the land of Teen Mom 2.

Tsk tsk tsk...and I though they were really going to make it. I have followed this story from the beginning (being a blossoming gossip blogger) and I have to say I am disappointed. In a magazine just last week they were interviewed on how they knew they were going to make it. They looked so in love, but I suppose they should have waited a little while longer to see if it was really real. I wonder if they really go through with this, or if it's just a bridge under troubled waters. Either way, I'll be watching and waiting to get the whole scoop on this story.


Wow- they truly were the only couple on Teen Mom 2 that seemed to have a genuine love between them. Yes, they are young but as I have watched, they have battled a lot of tribulations that only helped them grow. I am sad that their new marriage has come to this. I truly wish them happiness & hope they both can find a way to work through whatever it is that has torn them apart. I just wonder what could be so tragic to both of them to feel a divorce is the only way out. Young, old or middle aged, when you make a life long commitment, through good times & bad, you must stick together. To many people do not take the time to devote exactly what it takes to be married, thus always taking the easy way out as in a divorce. How sad - another statistic.


Too young to be married. Too young to have children. Teenage girls (and I was one) see marriage as all hearts and roses. They don't see the long term. They are vastly unprepared for the reality of two people joining their lives together forever. It can be rough at times for even the most mature of adults, but it seems downright imossible for a still maturing teenager. They were way to young.
