Leah Calvert & Corey Simms' Custody Drama Just Got Even Worse

Leah CalvertOh man. After the most recent episode of Teen Mom 2, we got a glimpse of how contentious things really are between Leah Calvert and her ex-husband Corey Simms. The two have been working out their differences for years, co-parenting twin daughters Aleeah and Ali, but things really seem to be coming to a head recently.

After the episode aired, Leah took to Facebook to explain why she was shown bitterly complaining about Corey's lack of child support payments.


The somewhat frazzled mom-of-three wrote:

I am admitting that I shouldn't have been using bad language in front of my children. It was in the heat of the moment and It was a scene where you only saw certain parts of the filming! As for the child support issue, he was ordered, by the State of WV, the $1200 a month in child support. I wanted to work with him and was willing to accept $800 a month. Approximately 6 months after that he wasn't paying his half of the medical bills, to which all of them were in my name and I was getting collection letters. I agreed to lower his payments to $200 a month so we could pay off the medical bills.

But it turns out that's not what ended up happening. She continued, "This agreement lasted for a year and they never were paid. This is when we went back to court, to get the bills paid and out of collections! Also, to restore my credit."

Ugh, no wonder she's been so stressed recently, especially about money! If she's going to be the one bearing the brunt of the responsibility for the medical bills, then Corey needs to pay. And if she's letting him off the hook, so to speak, so that he can contribute too, then he needs to pay those.

It's so frustrating when you're trying to divide the cost of raising children between two homes, and even more frustrating when someone feels like they shouldn't have to contribute.

We're just hoping these two finally got their financial woes figured out. Leah urged fans to keep watching the show to find out what happens, and said that "the truth will reveal itself in time."

Do you think Leah should be complaining about Corey's lack of financial support in front of her children?
