“The other girls have signed on and are ready to film a sixth season,” a source tells Radar. “They’ll be shooting as usual.”
“She hasn’t told anyone what’s really going on,” the source says.
Though she isn’t sharing her reasons with some of her close pals, Radar reported that Messer left the show because she’s terrified her not-so-wholesome reality image will lead her to lose custody of her 4-year-old twins, Ali and Aleeah. (She has been engaged in a bitter custody battle with ex-husband Corey Simms, 25.)
“Leah’s final court date is coming up, and her behavior on the show made her look really bad to the judge,” a source told Radar on Friday of the drug-addled star, who was caught on camera nodding off during a conversation with Ali’s doctor.
Now both Teen Mom series have whittled their casts down to three stars. As Radar reported in May, sex-tape star Farrah Abraham, 23, was dropped from the show when her antics became too racy for MTV. Teen Mom 1, starring Maci Bookout, 23, Catelynn Lowell, 22, and Amber Portwood, 24, will begin airing early next year.
