Leah Messer Loses Custody of Twins to Corey Simms

Leah Messer might have had the toughest year of any of the Teen Mom ladies, which is really saying something.

First, Leah went through an ugly divorce with Jeremy Calvert.

Shortly thereafter, the world learned of the severity of Leah's drug problem on a series of Teen Mom episodes that focused on her prescription pill addiction. 

Now, In Touch magazine is reporting that Leah has lost her long custody battle against her first husband, Corey Simms.

“[Corey] was awarded primary custody effective immediately,” a source tells the tabloid. “Leah only gets the girls on the weekends now. Leah’s been crying. She never thought this would happen.”

Corey fought Leah for custody of the couple's 5-year-old twin daughters Ali and Aleeah back in 2014, on the grounds that Leah's drug use was preventing her from providing a safe environment for the kids.

A court-ordered drug test came back, however, clean and Leah was able to retain custody.

Shortly thereafter, Leah spiraled out of control and eventually checked into a 30-day treatment program. Messer completed rehab back in July, but insiders say she quickly returned to her old ways.

"Leah’s really been screwing up since then, so Corey took her back to court,” the source said. “The judge looked at the girls’ school records, which show that they’ve been late for school and made the change in custody.” 

Sources say Leah has no immediate plans to repeal the court's decision.
