It looks like Leah Messer's controversial new salon could already be out of business.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported on Monday, the West Virginia Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists launched an investigation into the Teen Mom 2 star's Gloss salon, as none of the three stylists are licensed professionals and the women promoted illegal "on location" services.
Though the board refused to comment on the status of the ongoing investigation, Messer and her partners, Leslee Pannell and Crystal Spinks, have taken the salon's website without explanation.
On Gloss' Facebook page, the women hit back at Radar's shocking exposee yesterday.
"We will protect our reputation and ourselves. This is a future career we believe in," they wrote. "Success doesn't come without set backs and haters. We aren't afraid of either."
Despite the board's original statement to Radar, Pannell told The Ashley's Reality Roundup that "there is zero truth" to reports about an investigation. However, she confesses that Gloss is suddenly "on hold" until Messer completes cosmetology school.
Messer has faced her fair share of scandals over the past year. As Radar revealed last summer, friends feared the mother of three was hooked up prescription painkillers. And in October, her husband Jeremy Calvert, 25, publicly accused her of cheating with an ex.
