Leah Messer’s ex-husband, Corey Simms, is reportedly planning to resume his fight for full custody of their twin girls, 5-year-olds Ali and Aleeah.
Although the former Teen Mom 2 couple agreed in December they would share joint custody of the girls, Simms has since been convinced Leah Messer is an unfit mother.
On June 15, an insider revealed the following to Radar Online:
“With her drug and emotional issues, Corey doesn’t think [Leah Messer] is in any shape to be a good mother right now. He will stop at nothing to make sure his girls are in safe hands.”
According to the site, Simms is currently working with high-powered West Virginia attorney Rusty Webb. When asked for comment about the case by Radar, Webb refused. He did, however, confirm Simms as a client.
Leah Messer reportedly delayed going to rehab after learning of Simms’ plan. Then, once Simms allegedly agreed to wait until after Messer returned home to restart their custody battle, she checked into a Utah rehab facility for issues stemming from stress and depression.
While there have been prior reports, claiming Jeremy Calvert wants full custody of their daughter, Adalynn, 2, Radar Online‘s source claimed that was not the case. Although the two endured quite a messy divorce, which was finalized just last week, seven months after Calvert’s filing, Leah Messer’s second ex-husband isn’t planning to take away her youngest daughter.
“When [Leah Messer] comes home, they will share joint custody of Addie. Jeremy doesn’t want to take his daughter away from her mom.”
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Leah Messer’s divorce from Calvert was finalized on June 8. According to an In Touch Weekly report, Leah Messer participated in the divorce hearing as she received treatment for stress and depression in Utah.
“Leah participated on the phone from rehab. They had an uncontested divorce. The terms, including a custody arrangement for Adalynn, were agreed upon prior to the hearing. It was all over in about 15 minutes.”
As Leah Messer entered rehab, a source told revealed the following information to In Touch Weekly:
“She’s ready for her 30-day stint of therapy. She’s being treated for depression and stress. She’s always put other people’s needs ahead of her own, and her mental health suffered because of it.”
