Friends of the couple say money problems are tearing them apart — and they’re both getting closer to other people!
We watched teen newlyweds Leah Messer, 18, and Corey Simms, 20, struggle over their 16-month-old daughter Aliannah‘s health problems on MTV’s Teen Mom 2, but now it sounds like the couple may be facing its biggest challenge yet: living apart! Sources close to the reality pair tell OK! magazine that “Cory is going to file for divorce” very soon, and that “he and Leah have been living apart for two weeks now!”
Another friend tells In Touch Weekly that the couple has been fighting over money — more specifically, that Leah has become increasingly upset with Corey for taking money out of their joint bank account without her permission. A recent $19,000 withdrawal is reportedly the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“He did it without telling Leah, even though the money is mostly her earnings from MTV,” the friend says. ”When she found out, they had a vicious fight and she left him.”
Leah’s friends have been convincing her to leave Corey for a while now. He’s allegedly “always getting drunk with his friends, and can easily hook up with other girls,” a fact he admitted to on the Teen Mom 2 reunion show.
To complicate the situation even further, Leah has reportedly been spending time with her high school sweetheart, Robbie Kidd!
“Leah’s close friends all secretly want Leah back with Robbie,” another source reveals. “They feel he truly loves her.”
