If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that Leah Messer has been involved in several tumultuous relationships during her time on the show.
Some have been high-profile, such as Messer's two failed marriages.
While others have been considerably more low-key, such as Leah's relationship with T.R. Dues.
Now, we're learning that Dues wasn't Messer's only secret boyfriend, and that she kept one relationship so thoroughly on the down-low that even the most gossip-starved TM2 obsessives had no idea she was seeing anyone.
An aspiring model named Scotty Ayres has revealed to Radar Online that he and Leah dated for several weeks during the summer of 2016.
“We were a ‘thing’ but she didn’t know what she wanted so we just fell out,” Ayres tells Radar. “
He adds, "It was a train wreck dating her" ... but then he doesn't really go into much detail.
In fact, despite considerable evidence to the contrary, Ayres denies that Messer was addicted to prescription drugs at one point.
“She didn’t take nothing that she wasn’t prescribed,” he claims.
“She’s not a druggie at all! She’s a good-hearted girl.”
Of course, just because she wasn't using during the short period of time that she dated Ayres, that doesn't mean Messer never struggled with addiction.
But despite his claim that their relationship was a "trainwreck," Ayres has nothing negative to say about Messer's behavior.
However, the reason for that might be that he's holding out hope that they'll eventually get back together.
“I wish she would give me another chance, but I have to let her come to me,” he said. “I can’t chase her.”
Gotta love a guy who will talking to the press about your relationship and act like he's giving you your space at the same time.
Ayres concluded by offering some douchey words of advice to someone he may or may not have hooked up with almost a year ago:
“She needs to focus on herself first before she needs a man,” he said.
Deep, man. Deep
