Teen Mom’s Leah Messer-Calvert and Corey Simms have always put their differences aside for the sake of their 4-year-old twins, Ali and Aleeah. But In Touch has exclusively learned that Corey recently blindsided Leah by threatening to file for full custody of their girls.
“A few months ago, Leah asked Corey for more money, and it really pissed him off,” a source close to the Teen Mom star exclusively tells In Touch.
