The Teen Moms wouldn't be Teen Moms without their teen baby daddies (none of whom are teens anymore, btw), but one of the dads is ready to peace out of the show, according to a new report.
Jeremy Calvert, ex-husband of Leah Messer and father to their three-year-old daughter Adalynn, is allegedly fed up with Teen Mom 2 and wants out.
“Jeremy is over it,” a source tells The Ashley's Reality Roundup.
“He’s tired of being attached to this show, and now that he and Leah are divorced, he doesn’t want to be part of her drama," the source added.
"He’s tired of dealing with all the negativity that comes from him being on the show, too.”
Now, MTV could feasibly carry on just fine without Jeremy, but word is he plans to prohibit his daughter from appearing on the show as well.
“Jeremy wants Addie out of the spotlight. He doesn’t want her to grow up being known as the kid from Teen Mom 2,” the source says.
In terms of children's contracts, both Jeremy and Leah would have to agree to let Addie appear on the show.
So, without Jeremy's blessing, they're screwed.
“There’s no way MTV would fight it,” the source tells the site.
“They won’t go to court or anything. It will make it very hard for the film crews, though, if they are filming Leah and the twins and Addie is not allowed to appear," continued the source.
"They will probably try to throw a lot more money Jeremy’s way to get him to agree though, but that’s the most they’ll do.”
Jeremy is unlikely to be persuaded by the cash, according to the insider, as he already makes good money at his day job.
We last saw Jeremy on the show a couple weeks ago, when he and Leah had dinner together and she flirted shamelessly with him.
In fact, the final cut of said episode is what sent Leah over the edge, claiming that the show's producers edited the footage to make her look bad.
Leah herself has threatened to leave the show, citing unfair editing as the reason.
