“Leah’s not in a good place right now. She’s lost,” an insider tells In Touch. “Her friends think she needs rehab.”
And not only are local pals in the mother of three’s native West Virginia concerned. In Touch is reporting that MTV execs are planning to send their star to the same treatment facility in which fellow Teen Mom girls Amber Portwood, 23, and Jenelle Evans, 22, received help.
“MTV would foot the bill,” a source says. “They’re as shocked about this as the fans and genuinely want her to get help.”
“He’s already met with lawyers and is definitely filing for divorce— he’s over Leah,” a source says of the father to Messer’s 21-month-old daughter Adalynn and hard-working pipeline engineer, who publicly accused his wife of cheating with drug-addled ex Robbie Kidd, 22, last month. (Messer has denied any infidelity.)
Meanwhile, Messer has other legal troubles brewing. Ex husband Corey Simms, 25, has been fighting for primary custody of their 4-year-old twins, Ali and Aleeah.
“Leah loves her children,” a source tells In Touch. “If she thinks she’ll really lose them, she’ll probably go to rehab. And it may just come to that.”
