'Teen Mom' Leah Messer & Corey Simms Battling It Out For Custody Of Twin Girls!

Leah filed for divorce and now Corey is gearing up to fight her for sole custody of Ali and Aleeah — Do you think he should be trying to get the kids?

Life is about to get even messier for Teen Mom star Leah Messer. The 19-year-old reality star filed for divorce in West Virginia’s Kanawha County Family Court on April 14, just six months after she and Corey Simms tied the knot. But now Corey is reportedly preparing to ask for custody of their 16-month-old twin girls — and his family is going to help him fight Leah in court!“Corey’s father vows to spend as much as he has to ensure that Corey gets custody,” a source tells OK! Magazine.

Just two days after filing for divorce and a week after moving in with her parents, Leah was seen crying in the arms of a girlfriend. It turns out Leah found Facebook messages between Corey and another girl that cut her to the core. “I haven’t been this happy in a long time,” he wrote.

Friends of the couple reveal that Leah and Corey married simply out of convenience. They needed money to help with Ali’s medical bills and it was the only way they could appear on Teen Mom 2.

“Leah is a good mother but a terrible wife,” a source says. “Corey had a completely different scenario in mind. They never communicated and the fighting was getting ridiculous.”

But even though the couple have reached the end of their marriage together, do you think it’s right to embark in a bitter and very public custody battle?

Here’s what drove Leah & Corey apart:

  • Leah leaves Corey at home on March 25 with the twins so that she could go to a party for a guy named Logan.
  • Corey gets upset when he discovers Leah went to the party because Logan fractured Corey’s eye socket in 2009 when they got into a fight over a girl!
  • Corey stops having sex with Leah and verbally attacks her about her stretch marks.
  • Leah gets upset because Corey transfers money from their joint bank account so that he could attempt to buy a new truck instead of using it for Ali’s medical bills or a down payment on a new home.
  • One night while Corey was on the phone, he smacked Leah across the face with a manila folder and screamed “just shut the f**k up.”
  • Leah finds Corey looking at pornography on the sofa in their home.
  • Leah takes matters into her own hands and makes it difficult for Corey’s parents to see the girls.
  • Leah is disgusted with the condition of the home they live in “rent-free” because Corey’s parents own it.
  • Leah and Corey get into a “brutal” fight on April 11
  • Leah is at her mother’s home on April 13 and is “physically ill” from the stress and spends the day vomiting.
  • Leah goes to dinner at Lone Star Steakhouse on April 14 and looks “despondent” but signs autographs for a few fans.
  • Leah files for divorce on April 15 — believing the home is toxic for the girls.
  • Corey hires an attorney and intends to fight Leah for custody of Ali and Aleeah.
  • Corey tells Leah to leave their home and Leah is shocked because she was always telling friends how in love they were!

Cory was controlling and self centered. He got pissed when Leah got a job because he says he doesn’t want her to talk to any other guys. Yes she cheated on him but she’s been nothing but faithful since they got married and did nothing but try and work it out! Bathing your kids in a basement filled with mold is dangerous and a serious health concern! Not to mention there are electrical outlets next to the tub. Cps could have taken those kids away and Cory would have noone to blame but himself because he was unwilling to fix the situation. He wanted a new truck instead when he had one he just got four months previous. If he really did hit her it was just a matter of time that he would be doing it all the time. A man should never ever put his hands on you no matter what! Cory has thrown up red flags all through out that relationship! He is always looking pissed and annoyed. Its sad because you can see his eyes glazing over when leah talks about the girls or the health issues. Her and the girls are better off without him. If he’s willing to hit his wife what is to stop him from hitting one of the girls? I have seen it a thousand times where the abuse starts with a slap across the face over something stupid.

Its the best for them, the fighting IS TOXIC for the girls. No man should EVER put his hands on a woman no matter what the case may be. She is better off without him.

I am sad to see they are divorcing. The first year is always hard, and I can’t help thinking that they didn’t give it enough time. I definitely think they both should be in the children’s lives. Leah is more responsible with taking care of the girls, but they need their Daddy too! They are both great parents and I think they need to get away from the spotlight and work on their marriage!!

i doubt hes going to get sole custody. hell probably have a couple extra days tops if leah is willing to take the other days and does not mess up dramatically.

but overall i cant believe these people are actually famous. although i do understand the purpose and arguably the importance of this show. but really all this is kind of rediculous.

mrs fuller, can you please do an article on me so i can be famous? im from orange county and your probably from LA so lets meet up. haha

It is going to take alot for Cory to get full custody, he should already have joint since they were married butif there is a history of abuse with Cory it’s going to be almost impossible for him!

(h) It doesnt matter who the damn adult is. You have to act like one to even be considered one. And to me, I think Leah should get the girls, shes the one with them all the time, and shes the one that sacrifices her going to college, and having a job so Corey can have his job. Youre stupid. Most teenagers are more ADULT like than so called adults. Realize what you say before you actually say it hun.

He has not abusied her he has yelled at her as much as she has him. They both have their fault they are only human! They need to take care of their babies together with joint. No parent should not be aloud to see their kids! That is just mean unless its to protect them and from what i see they don’t need to be protected from mommy or daddy, they need to be loved and cared for by BOTH parents!

Did you see the show that aired the week after the show finale that shows all the footage they didn’t use for the season? Cory was shown CUSSING Leah and she was crying. That showed a side of Cory we hadn’t seen before. He obviously is not the laid back guy he pretended to be on the show. I really liked Cory too, and wish them both the best!

Um….How do you even know he abused Leah? Cause you read it on a website? Get real, that guy was the most mild mannered chump on that show. I don’t think he ever even raised his voice at the girl. But I am sure he loves his kids, that Leah just wants to be forever young.

How do u know its true abt Leah going out n partying? Cuz u read it in a magazine? I think they should try joint custody. I do have to agree though on Corey not knowing how to take care of the girls for more than an hour. Not to mention, I recall Leah was pressured into the marriage cuz Corey said that they cant be together if they arent married. Im just saying, NO ONE KNOWS THE WHOLE STORY ON WHY THEY ARE DIVORCEING. And the twitter that Leah wrote abt them not getting a divorce was back on MARCH 9TH, Its April plus they have it in the newspaper saying they ARE DIVORCING. N if anyone wants to say i dont know what im talking abt, I do, Im 22 n going through a divorce n I have an almost 13 month old lil girl. I know its gotta be hard on Leah, n Maybe even Corey. If they dont do joint custody then I think Leah should get custody of the girls, cuz she can handle them n I know shell take Ali to her appointments n make sure she gets the medical attention she needs.

Um….Where did I say she went out partying…Sorry you fail at being clever. I said she wants to be forever young which is how I perceived her from the show. There you go Einstein.

Why are you hating on Denisia? You have no idea why she is getting divorced. She could be in an abusive relationship, he may be cheating on her! The point is you don’t know! You just wanna be a hateful, stupid Biatch, who obviously is unhappy with your own life so you inflict pain on others!! Keep your ignorant comments to yourself!

I think you are out of your mind Redneck!
Leah is with the girls more than Corey ever was, and if you remember in the episode where Leah went to go shopping and take a break from watching the girls, Corey wanted her back in an hour. He couldnt even change a diaper. And yes i know he works and everything, but damn, watch what you say cus you OBVIOUSLY dont know what the hell youre talking about. (:

Have to take Corey’s side on this one. I believe they both love their babies, but Corey’s gonna be the better custodian. Sorry Leah, just because you’re on TV, don’t turn into a beyotch.

Im 19 and married and the both of us sometimes party without the other one. Its definitely not grounds for divorce. There are many other issues you have being married then just that.

Leah should have full custody of the girls. She is a way better parent than Corey , he didn’t even know how to watch the babies for a hour. 2 me Leah should get the babies and that is final.

Do you really think the issues & stressors in a troubled marriage are so simple? Going out to a gathering every now & then is not grounds for divorce. Nor is being amicable with your ex. And of course he has every right to be a father to his kids which I’m sure he loves very much – What’s your point? Clearly you’ve never been married or have any children and you need to be reminded that this is not just your weekly guilty pleasure T.V. show.
