Leah Messer and her ex-husband, Corey Simms, admitted to hooking up with one another during Simms’ relationship with his currently pregnant wife, Miranda, during Wednesday night’s Teen Mom 2. Although the revelation came as a major shock to fans of Leah Messer and of the series, Simms claimed he and Messer had moved on from his shocking betrayal, and as the episode continued, they remained united against Leah Messer.
“Things happened that shouldn’t have happened and it was disrespectful to Miranda and I have apologized,” Leah Messer told host Dr. Drew Pinsky during the Teen Mom 2 Season 6 reunion special. “That’s the only time that I disrespected her.”
Although their affair was a hot topic of discussion, no details were given as to when, exactly, the incident took place. Was it during the time Corey and Miranda Simms were dating, or was it after they wed? Was Miranda pregnant at the time? Unfortunately, fans may never know — and they may also never know what really led Leah Messer to seek treatment.
During the reunion, Leah Messer’s alleged drug use was brought up, as it has been all season, and according to Corey and Miranda Simms, they had heard plenty of details about her reported prescription pill addiction, which Leah Messer’s second husband also spoke of, from people around their town.

According to an October 9 report by OK! Magazine, Leah Messer’s relationship with the Simms family “hasn’t improved” since filming the Teen Mom 2 Season 6 reunion in July, and that’s not at all surprising. After all, Leah Messer and Simms haven’t gotten along ever since he filed for full custody of their twins, 5-year-old Ali and Aleeah (they currently share custody of the girls), claiming Leah Messer was an “unfit” parent.

As her tensions with Corey and Miranda Simms continue, Leah Messer appears, at least judging by her social media pages, to be focused on her daughters.
On October 9, Leah Messer shared a photo on Facebook with the caption, “There’s nothing like movie night with my girls! #mommygirls.”
In the photo, which was initially posted to Instagram 12 weeks ago (with the same exact caption, nonetheless), Leah Messer was seen with her three daughters, Adalynn (whose father is Leah Messer’s second husband, Jeremy Calvert), Ali, and Aleeah.
In May of this year, after months of rumors regarding her alleged drug addiction, Leah Messer left her three daughters to seek treatment in a facility in Arizona. However, she never admitted to using drugs or being addicted to her prescription pain pill, which has been reported. Instead, Leah Messer claimed her stint in treatment was to address issues of anxiety and depression. Still, rumors have continued to swirl, and Corey insists his allegations aren’t without base.
In August, Corey explained his comments about Leah Messer’s alleged addiction on Twitter.
“Idk why I’m tweeting this because I honestly do not care what people think or what they say about me but anyways. There is a reason for everything that Miranda and myself have said or done. We simply want the girls to grow up in a safe and healthy environment. There is a lot of things that has been told to us by very close members of her family that lead us to believe the things being told are very much true. If we didn’t care about the girls or the situation we would obviously not have anything to say or do about it.”
Leah Messer did not tweet a response to her ex-husband regarding his message.
