Leah Messer Vows to Win Back Custody of Her Twins

It's been a rough time lately for this lady. Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer just lost primary custody of her twin daughters Ali and Aleeah Grace to her first ex-husband Corey Simms. That's just the frosting on the cake of suck she's been dealing with this year, but according to a recent interview, Leah has vowed to win back custody of her twins.

Earlier this month, a West Virginia judge awarded custody of the girls to Corey Simms and his wife Miranda, who are currently expecting their own baby girl together. 

Leah said it was "like a slap in the face" when she learned that Corey and Miranda would have Ali and Aleeah Monday through Friday, and she'd be allowed only weekend time.

The 23-year-old opened up to Us Weekly that she's planning on fighting back for primary custody. The issue seems to be Leah's inability to get them to school on time, but she's claiming that they only had one tardy this year, despite what Corey says.

Leah's inconsistency with Ali and Aleeah has been documenting on the last couple of seasons of Teen Mom 2, but we thought we were seeing an improvement ever since she went to a treatment center for 30 days a few months ago to deal with her anxiety and depression.

She wasn't about to take things lying down -- she set up a school-board meeting on October 19 to challenge the tardy accusations. She told Us Weekly, "I talked to the superintendent ... and I'm sending them the [time-stamped] pictures I took to prove the girls were not tardy. They're going to take them off."

According to the mag, school officials could not be reached.

Leah doesn't want the kids away from their dad entirely ... she said, "I feel like they should have both of us in their lives." She added, "At the end of the day, my kids are going to be happy, and I don't care what I have to do to make them happy."

It's always a crappy situation when divorced parents can't come to an agreement about what's best for the kids. We wish Corey and Leah the best of luck, and hope that they both put Ali and Aleeah first.
