Just a month after fans speculated that Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer and her boyfriend, Jason Jordan, tied the knot, it seemed that they split. After Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported on Wednesday, March 13, that the couple actually broke up about two weeks ago, Us Weeklyofficially confirmed the news. And in a Instagram quote post, Leah herself seemed to weigh in on the situation, hinting at her own impending breakup announcement. Get all the details on Leah and Jason’s split in the gallery below.
They confirmed their relationship in May and by August, they’d become Instagram official, regularly sharing cute comments about each other online. “Find someone that knows you’re not perfect but treats you as if you are!” Leah captioned one of their photos together.
By October 2018, it was over, and the Teen Mom star was taking to social media to hint at the split. “Some things are meant to happen, just not meant to be. Some things are meant to come into your life, just not meant to stay,” she shared on Twitter.
Jason seemed to get that dating in public was tough.
“With her three [girls], my child, TV, tabloids, rumors, her travel and work, my work, friends and family, and exes, it’s not a simple love story,” he told a fan in the comments. “[There are] good days and bad, but a lot of people don’t understand how hard it is to be criticized about everything. It’s definitely not easy, but we both do the best we can for each other and our families to let OUR LOVE rule and ONLY consider our situation. And what works best for us may not always be popular to some, but it makes our family strong and [we] make it work.”
It all started with an Instagram photo of Leah’s daughter, Aleeah. “So crazy how big she’s getting. We’re so proud of my girl! @raylansdad416,” the mom-of-three posted on the pic, tagging her boyfriend in the message as well.
In the comments responding to Jason’s words, they thought they were out of the loop. “Have I missed something is Leah engaged to him or have they gotten married?” wrote one as another added, “Oh when did they get married?”
Jason was just happy to step up during the days that Leah was with her girls to act as another father figure to them. Hey, two dads are better than one, right? “[Corey Simms and I] were BOTH there for the girls,” he told fans.
According The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, a source close to the star claimed that Leah was the one who broke it off. Jason’s alleged controlling behavior is what drove a rift between them, and dealing with the jealousy was too much to handle.
“So thankful for this beautiful journey that we call life!” she wrote on a floral backdrop. “My thought of the day. … Everyone comes into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. I’m thankful for everyone I’ve journeyed with and continue to learn and grow. When we can live in the present with appreciation, there’s no room for judgment. Some things are just not meant to be and that’s ok.”
“Everything happens for a reason! #trusttheprocess,” she continued. “I only ever want what God wants for us! 🙌🏼Thank you for all of the support, we love you! ♥️♥️♥️” Maybe the star will find someone who is meant for her soon.
