Leah Messer could lose custody of her twin girls to Corey Simms, and in this new Teen Mom 2 sneak peek, she struggles to comes to grips with that reality.
The maligned mother of three, 22, breaks down while discussing her custody battle with her ex-husband in this clip from Wednesday's all new episode.
“It shocked me,” Leah tells her stepfather Lee about Corey Simms filing for full custody of 4-year-old Ali and Aleeah, following a series of disputes.
At this moment, Messer and second husband, Jeremy Calvert, 25, have primary custody of the girls, along with their own daughter, who is younger.
Lee, referring to Simms’ reluctance for Ali, who was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy last year, to depend on a wheelchair, asks her:
“Why would you give custody to a parent who is in denial when it comes to Ali’s medical condition, who is not wanting to cooperate with fulfilling her needs?”
Is that a rhetorical question, Lee?
