In a clip for this Monday’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Corey Simms learns that he has been granted primary custody of the twin daughters he shares with Leah Messer.
"You got virtually everything you asked for," his lawyer tells him during a one-on-one meeting.
"You’re gonna be primary caretaker, primary legal custodian," he continues. "She no longer has the decision making, it’s shared now."
Corey can barely contain his excitement when he receives the news and releases a huge grin before fighting back tears.
"It’s amazing, we’ve fought for so long," he says. "It’s hard to hold back the emotions. I really didn’t expect it, you know? But for the girls’ sake, I’m tickled pink that it happened."
Corey had accused Leah of failing to get their six-year-old daughters Ali and Aleeah to school on time, and Leah’s past addiction to prescription drugs certainly didn’t help in the custody battle.
Of course, this is devastating news for the Teen Mom 2 star, who reportedly even dumped her boyfriend T.R. Dues out of fear that the custody judge would frown upon her new relationship.
More recently, Leah came under fire when it appeared as though she wasn’t feeding her daughters breakfast and complained that she already has to get up early enough as it is.
She later clarified that the kids eat breakfast at school, so all the haters can just back off, mmkay?
