Leah Messer: Did She Dump T.R. Dues to Win Custody Battle?

by at .

Last week we learned that Leah Messer and T.R. Dues had broken up after just five months of dating.

There were many theories as to what caused the couple to go from talking about getting engaged to calling it quits just a few weeks later - and most of the speculation had to do with Leah's exes.

First, we heard that Leah was cheating on T.R. with Jeremy Calvert

That doesn't seem to be the case, however, as Leah's been tweeting about loving the single life, and we all know how bad she is at keeping secrets. 

The other theory involves Leah's first husband, but in a very different way. 

You see, throughout their time together, Leah tried to keep her relationship T.R. a secret.

The reason, it seems, was that Messer was stuck in the midst of an ugly custody battle with Corey Simms, and she feared that the judge would not look kindly on her living with a new man with two kids of his own.

Now, sources are saying that as her day in court approached, Leah decided to not leave anything to chance and actually broke up with Dues.

"Leah knows it doesn't look good for her to have a new man in the house already," another source revealed. "She wants to look like a stable single mom to the judge in order for her to get her girls back."

If that was Leah's goal, it certainly seems to have worked.

The judge in her case granted Messer primary custody of her twin daughters with Simms.

Of course, now that the hearing is over, it's possible that Leah will get back together with T.R. - but judging from her latest tweets, she seems to be enjoying having her house - and her three girls - all to herself.
