Corey Simms Can’t Use ‘Teen Mom 2’ Footage Against Leah Messer In Custody Battle, But Why?

Corey Simms appears to have a pretty solid case against Leah Messer, at least by most accounts, based on the footage seen on Teen Mom 2 season six. However, according to an Aug. 12 report by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Corey Simms is restricted from using any footage of Messer in their ongoing custody battle over their 5-year-old twins, Ali and Aleeah.

While Corey Simms attempted to use footage of Messer during a recent custody hearing, the judge on the case threw it out, as he is banned from using MTV episodes in court because of his contract with the network.

Below is what The Ashley’s Reality Roundup‘s insider revealed of Corey Simms’ contract:

“Legally, [Corey Simms] can’t use the footage from the show against Leah, no matter how damning. Nothing in the show can be used in court by parties that have signed contracts. The reason is because in the contracts it says that MTV has the right to portray things however they want. The contracts state that the show may not depict a whole truth, so when [Corey Simms] tried [to use the episodes] as evidence in court, the judge said no right off the bat.”

Throughout the sixth season of Teen Mom 2, Corey Simms’ ex-wife, Messer, has been seen in a number of questionable parenting moments, including a late-night dinner for her twins, who had school the next day, and a midnight bedtime. Corey Simms also alleged his daughter, Aleeah, was forced to make breakfast for herself, using a toaster nonetheless, because of Messer sleeping in, and said she frequently takes them to school late — or not at all.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, Corey Simms and his wife appeared to have been targeted by Messer in a recent Facebook post. Speaking to fans, via meme, Messer spoke of those who are “jealous,” and have built-up anger issues.

“People’s tirades against you will probably reveal to you just how unhappy and disillusioned and frustrated that person is with life, and that’s their problem, not yours. You don’t need to take on someone else’s burden. They need to deal with their anger.

To put others down in an attempt to gain attention, validation, or happiness shows if you’re not jealous of whether have, you show that you’re unhappy with what you have when you intentionally offend them.”
