Exclusive: 'Teen Mom
2' Star Leah Messer
Loses Primary Custody
Of Her Twin Daughters
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer, who left rehab in June, has lost primary custody of her twins, Ali and Aleeah, 5, In Touch magazine has exclusively learned.
The girls’ father (and Leah’s ex-husband), Corey Simms, “was awarded primary custody, effective immediately” on Oct. 13, a source exclusively reveals.

“Leah only gets the girls on the weekends now,” a family insider adds.
Corey first fought for custody in 2014 after reports surfaced that Leah was abusing prescription pills (a judge ruled in her favor after a negative drug test). “Leah’s really been screwing up since then, so Corey took her back to court. The judge looked at the girls’ school records, which show that they’ve been late for school, and made the change in custody.”
But her fight doesn’t end there. Leah’s other ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, now may seek primary custody of their daughter, Addie, 2.

“Everyone is very worried about Addie. She recently wandered out of the house while Leah was distracted,” claims the family insider. “Thankfully, a police officer found Addie and brought her back home.”
“If [Jeremy] can find [a job] nearby, he’ll go for the same custody arrangement that Corey did,” the insider tells In Touch. (Jeremy’s current job has him traveling for weeks at a time.)
