Leah Messer is often referred to as the “responsible” Teen Mom — the hard-working mother of twins who put her wild days firmly behind her when she married her baby daddy, Corey Simms, 20. But Leah may not be the girl whom viewers — and Corey — think she is. In Touch has learned that when her husband’s back is turned, Leah has been secretly getting together with her bad-boy ex Seth George — and indulging what a friend of hers calls her “wild streak.”
“She has definitely met up with Seth without telling Corey,” says a friend, who adds that with Seth, Leah “has fun and feels like a teenager again.”
As devoted as she is to her girls Aleeah and Aliannah, 1, now, the friend says it was a “total shock” when Leah discovered she was pregnant, just one month after meeting Corey. Feeling lonely and overwhelmed by new motherhood, Leah first cheated on Corey with bad-boy ex Robbie Kidd. Shortly after her fling ended, Leah, 19, hooked up with Seth and things “got serious,” the friend says.
But before long, she shifted her attention back to Corey, making a desperate play to try and win him back. The pair did reconcile, getting married in October — but there was something Corey didn’t know.
“She was still dating Seth last summer, when she was trying to get back together with Corey,” the friend says, adding that even as she begged him to give her another chance, Leah “never told Corey about Seth.”
