In a new sneak peek from Teen Mom 2, Leah Messer-Calvert's ex-husband Corey Simms plots his next move in their custody fight - with his new wife.
The oft-maligned (and subtitled) Simms is gunning for custody of their twins, Ali and Aleeah, to the dismay of Leah as tensions between them run high ...
“So we’re going to meet the lawyer today about getting more custody of the girls,” Corey tells wife Miranda Patterson while driving to court in the above clip.
“I just really want what’s the best for the girls. That’s the main thing. That’s my No. 1 priority: What’s best for the girls. They just need structure.”
Corey explains that he’s not planning on attacking Leah and her husband, Jeremy Calvert, only to defend his own rights and opinions with the kids.
He says he feels slighted by them, insignificant and of lesser importance.
Leah threw down the gauntlet on last week's episode, fed up with Corey dragging his feet - in her view - when it comes to dealing with their daughter's insurance.
Her husband also started piling on Corey, which he didn't appreciate.
“We used to co-parent great,” he vents. “That’s because I would give in a lot. And now that I actually stand up for myself, it’s like the world is ending now because it’s personal.”
Miranda Patterson tries to reason with him about proving his parenting abilities to his daughters and that's it, he seems rattled by Leah and Jeremy.
“I just hate how it’s become a personal thing,” he laments of their feud.
“I hate that we argue at our drop-off. From day one, I said that I never wanted the girls to witness me and Leah having a heated argument."
Can these two put their pride aside and work it out for the girls' sake?
