Corey Simms is done tiptoeing around his former wife, Leah Messer’s, issues.
In a new sneak peek episode for Teen Mom 2’s sixth season, Leah asks for his help while she has to go “do this therapy” at “a facility or something.” That's when the father-of-two (who is expecting a baby with his wife Miranda) asks her point-blank about her alleged drug problem.

“It’s nothing, like, bad,” the 23-year-old mom tells her ex. “I feel like me going there, I’m going to be able to be a better mom and be the best mom that I can be.”
When Miranda challenges Leah and asks if she’s admitting to being anything less than “the best mom she can be” in the past, the mom-of-three scoffs, saying, “I’m not going to say I was a bad mom. I deal with more than you guys even know.”

But that’s not enough for Corey — who is determined to do what’s best for his girls, five-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah.
“We understand what you deal with,” he rebuffs. “We’re saying, is there something that you take to deal with that problem? Can you look at me and Miranda in the eyes and tell us there’s no drug problem?”

While the recently divorced reality starlet insists there’s no drug problem, Corey isn’t convinced.
“I think I know there’s a drug problem, but I think you’re afraid to tell me,” he says. “The first step is admitting that you have a problem, rather than beating around the bush about a problem you’re making up so that you can avoid your real problem.”
Well, dang, Corey! See how Leah responded in the video below (around the 29-minute mark):
