Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is not allowed to speak to ex-husband Corey Simms without his current wife present - or so she claims.
Miranda Patterson Simms isn’t letting Leah anywhere near her man after Corey banged Leah in his truck (or at least hooked up with her).
The details are disputed, but there was an affair. In a reversal of how it usually goes, Corey cheated on his second wife with his first one.
"Corey and I did hook up two months after they got married," Leah confessed to Us after being tag-teamed on the Teen Mom 2 reunion.
Far from pleased as you might expect, Miranda went further than throwing shade at Leah on MTV. She enforced a new set of rules.
"I’m not allowed to call Corey’s phone to communicate with the girls unless she’s somehow three-wayed in,” the mother of three explained.
“He has to be around her when he calls.”
Of course, not everyone calls these days ... so when it comes to texting, Corey and Leah must also communicate via group MMS with Miranda.
According to Leah, the second Mrs. Simms is just jealous, insecure and bitter because of the former spouses' past. In her own words:
“Miranda doesn’t want me in the picture. She wants to hurt me because she thinks that Corey and I still have something for each other.”
Not that Leah gives AF about it though.
"I couldn’t care less about their relationship,” she said. “I want them to be happy. But if [we] can’t get along, this is going to be a nonstop fight.”
Leah also says the former couple's twins are “miserable” at their father’s house because they are “so close” to her. That may be a stretch.
Fortunately, time does heal all wounds.
Leah recently regained custody of the twins - 50/50 with Corey - after the couple came to an equitable agreement and buried the hatchet.
Small victories, people. Small victories.
