A friend of Leah and Jeremy’s reveals that Leah may cash in big time if she marries Jeremy.
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer has more than one reason for tying the knot with her fiance Jeremy Calvert. Besides being pregnant, a new report suggests that Leah has another major angle for walking down the aisle a second time.
“Leah wants to get married so she can earn money by selling wedding photos and interviews,” a friend tells Star magazine. “It’s the only way she can make money from the media under her contract. She didn’t get a bonus or anything from MTV for marrying on the show, but she can get a lot of money from the other things.”
Money talks. “Leah needs the money,” continues the friend. “Since she already lives with Jeremy, she doesn’t think a whole lot would change between them if they tie the knot.”
Leah, 19, has already been married once to Corey Simms, 21, — and has only been dating Jeremy since July. Is she moving too fast?
“I think they’re really good for each other,” the friend says. “I just don’t think they should rush into marriage.”
