'Teen Mom 2' stars Leah Messer and Corey Simms divorcing
In the least surprising news since Michael Jackson had emotional problems, Teen Mom 2 "star" Leah Messer has filed for divorce from baby daddy Corey Simms only six months after they got married. Next thing you'll tell us is they have a family history of teen pregnancy and failed marriage.
The 18-year-old Messer filed papers on April 14 to divorce Simms, 20, OK! confirms. They had apparently been fighting over money and such, and he split. "He and Leah have been living apart for two weeks now, and he has been very happy," Corey's friend told the mag. Yes, he's been very happy not owning up to his responsibilities.
If you watch the show, first of all, we're so sorry; Second, you'll recall Leah and Corey dated for all of one month before she got pregnant with twins Aliannah and Aleeah, who were born in 2009 and are now 16 months old. The couple broke up just after the 2009 birth, got back together six months later, moved in together and got married for the show's season finale. But this is all par for the course for Leah, who is just living out her destiny.
"I didn't want to jump into something else and be like, 'Oh, s---! What did we do?'" Messer told Us. "Three years ago, back before I was pregnant, I never thought I'd be married now. I was scared because a lot of people who marry young end up divorcing within a year."
She added that her "mom and dad married, divorced, remarried and divorced again," and that her mother was married at 16, so history does repeat itself in a way. The good news is, that means she and Corey will get back together in about six months.
