Leah Messer Opens Up to Fans Ahead of Custody Hearing

by at .  Updated at . Comments

With the custody battle between Leah Messer and Corey Simms set to resume next week, the troubled Teen Mom 2 cast member has seemingly been in a reflective mood on social media lately.

Over the weekend, Leah retweeted a meme reading, "I’m not what I have done. I’m what I have overcome.”

She posted a comment reading, "Yes! I needed this today!"

Many fans took the tweets as Leah's way of responding to accusations that she's a negligent parent, which have dogged her in recent months.

At the same time, one could interpret this as Messer reminding the world that though her drug problem was broadcast on Teen Mom 2 for the entire world to see, Leah has now been sober for several months.

Leah kept the inspirational messages coming shortly thereafter with another retweet, this one reading:

“Sometimes, we need to be hurt in order to grow. We must lose in order to gain. Sometimes, some lessons are learned best through pain.”

Yet again, fans asked if Leah was nervous about her upcoming custody hearing, but the mother of three did not respond.

Next week, Leah will likely be forced to answer to accusations that she's an unfit parent when she and Simms face off for round three of their seemingly never-ending legal battle later this month.

Leah lost custody of her twin daughters to Simms back in October, when his lawyers convinced the court that Leah had frequently failed to get the girls to school on time.

Messer now claims that she's obtained school records showing that her daughters were dropped off at the correct time almost every day.

Who's telling the truth? And is she in a good enough place for a judge to give her the benefit of the doubt? It will be interesting to see.

In any event, you can watch Teen Mom 2 online to see Leah's often-questionable parenting for yourself, or take a look at the gallery below:
