Leah Messer-Calvert can’t seem to catch a break.
On top of raising three children—including one with special needs—In Touch Weekly recently broke the news that her ex, Corey Simms, was going after custody of their twins, Ali and Aleeah.
And now, a new clip from Teen Mom 2 proves how the situation between the twin’s parents has escalated—as tensions reach a new high.
EXCLUSIVE : Teen Mom Star Leah Messer-Calvert Prepares For Full-Custody Battle With Ex, Corey Simms
“So we’re going to meet the lawyer today about getting more custody of the girls,” Corey tells his wife Miranda while driving to the court. “I just really want what’s the best for the girls. That’s the main thing. That’s my No. 1 priority: What’s best for the girls. They just need structure.”
He goes on to explain that he’s not planning on attacking Leah and her husband, Jeremy. Instead, he expresses his frustrations that they don’t consider his opinion when making decisions about their children.
“We used to co-parent great,” he vents to his wife. “That’s because I would give in a lot. And now that I actually stand up for myself, it’s like the world is ending now because it’s personal.”
While Miranda tries to reason with her husband—telling him not to let the Calverts get to him, and that he only needs to prove his parenting abilities to his daughter—but he just isn’t able to shake it.

“I just hate how it’s become a personal thing,” he says. “I hate that we argue at our drop-off. From day one, I never wanted the girls to witness me and Leah having a heated argument.”
