Leah Calvert's Family Faces Another Unfortunate Setback

Leah & Jeremy Calvert

She's definitely had her fair share of challenges, and now Teen Mom 2 star Leah (Messer) Calvert has one more obstacle to come to terms with.

Her husband Jeremy Calvert was laid off from his job due to a scary incident where he passed out while pipelining. Apparently a combination of having headaches due to stress and anxiety and not eating breakfast that day is what caused him to faint. Unfortunately, it had more of a negative effect on his career than simply missing a day or two of work.


But getting laid off? For fainting? I understand that you can't exactly perform physical work adequately when your health isn't up to par, but given that he's a pretty young dude, you'd think they would've just told him to put his feet up for a week then get right back to work.

Man. Between losing Jeremy's income and everything she's been through with daughter Ali's muscular dystrophy diagnosis, poor Leah must be ready to lose her mind right about now.

But things have to turn around for her at some point in the near future, right? I mean, there are only so many hardships one person can deal with before things even out and start going in their favor.

Or at least let's hope that theory runs true for Leah's sake.

Do you think it's wrong that Jeremy was laid off?
