Leah Messer & Corey Simms's New Custody Arrangement Wasn't Settled by a Judge

We never thought these two would be able to work it out amicably! Word on the Internet is that Corey Simms and Leah Messer were finally able to come to a mutual custody agreement regarding their 6-year-old twins, Ali and Aleeah.


The Teen Mom 2 stars have been engaged in a nasty custody battle for months, which makes the news all the more surprising. We heard recently that Leah had "won" back custody of her girls after a judge ruled Corey to be the primary parent last fall, but apparently they settled out of court this time.

A source told Radar Online that the divorced couple met for a court hearing on January 27, but "were told that they had a few minutes to figure the situation out on their own." The insider continued, "The judge then left the room and allowed them to talk alone."

The pair were able to discuss the situation "very civilly," and they came to a mutual agreement, which the judge then signed off on.

It's been a tumultuous journey for the exes, as Leah spent 2015 going through her second divorce (from Jeremy Calvert), and even spent a month in rehab for anxiety and depression. Meanwhile Corey and his wife Miranda welcomed preemie daughter Remington, and occasionally threw drug abuse accusations Leah's way.

But it all seems to be settled now. The source revealed, "Corey and Miranda think Leah is doing much better now, which makes it easier for them to get along with her ... They're praying Leah stays on a good path so everyone can remain at peace. Corey never wanted to take the girls away from their mother, he felt it was in the girls' best interest at the time."

Corey and Leah will now split time equally with the twins, which really is the best for them. Hopefully that's the last we hear about this custody battle!
