Leah Messer Quits Teen Mom 2: Divorce, Drug Addiction to Blame?

by at .  Updated at .

Late last night, a fan tweeted Leah Messer and asked if the 22-year-old had any intention of returning to Teen Mom 2 for season six.

Leah replied simply, "No." She later added, "I hope my girls continue to move on with TM2. I wish them the best."

Messer's decision to part ways with the series that made her famous isn't particularly surprising, considering how tumultuous her personal life has been in recent weeks:

Last month Leah's husband, Jeremy Calvert, accused her of cheating.

She denied it, and the couple briefly patched things up. Now, however, insiders say Calvert has moved out on Messer and will soon begin divorce proceedings.

In addition to her marital woes, Leah is reportedly struggling with a dangerous addiction. Sources in her hometown say Leah spends $600 a week on prescription pills, and has ignored her family's pleas to seek treatment.

So it stands to reason that Leah may not want her personal struggles to be featured on a reality show, but there remains the possibility that it wasn't her decision to end her run on Teen Mom.

MTV has fired or suspended reality show cast members as a result of their off-camera behavior several times in the past.

Teen Mom has often been criticized for allegedly glamorizing destructive behavior, and it's possible producers simply felt former fan-favorite Leah has become too much of a liability. 

We may never know for certain what happened, but whatever the reason, it looks as though Leah's time as a Teen Mom has come to an end.
