For years, Leah Messer has been full of excuses for her bizarre behavior and parenting problems. But finally, the troubled Teen Mom 2 star, 23, comes clean about sex, drug and custody rumors in a shocking new interview.
The mother of three first confirms reports she lost primary custody of 5-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah to their father, Corey Simms, 25, following a judge's October 7 ruling. "It was like a slap in the face," the MTV star tells Us. "It hurt me. It made me angry."
On her reality show's last season, Messer shut down Simms' claims she constantly brought the twins late to school. Now, she claims they sometimes showed up tardy or missed the entire day due to her struggle with narcolepsy, a sleep disorder. (She does deny they were tardy this year; Simms' claims prompted the judge to award primary custody to Simms and his wife, Miranda.)
Though she initially only copped to popping anti-anxiety pills for "about a week," she also admits to taking powerful prescription painkillers hydrocodone and Percocet after daughter Adalynn's 2013 birth. (RadarOnline.com exclusively reported Messer's drug abuse last summer.)
Finally! Fans have been begging to know if mortal enemies Messer and Simms really slept together as rumors allege. "Corey and I did hook up two months after they got married," she confesses in her most honest interview to date. Simms and his wife Miranda wed in June 2013— meaning Messer cheated on poor husband Jeremy Calvert, too, right after Addie's birth! (Messer and Calvert finalized their divorce in June 2015.)
