After insisting that they were better off friends, Messer then appeared to confirm that the relationship was actually back on.
It all started when Messer responded to a Wetpaint report, which said she was keeping mum on her relationship status. She denied that, saying she and Dues were officially just friends.
@WetpaintTV Keeping "mum" about TR Dues? We decided we are best at being friends. We both have our own lives & kids to worry about FIRST!— Leah D. Messer (@TM2LeahDawn) April 19, 2016
But then a fan called her out with a picture that appears to confirm that the two are still together, since Dues is clearly hanging out at Messer's house.
All of this took place at the end of April, and it appears that since then, she and Dues have sorted things out, because Messer took to Twitter again on Saturday with a message that some couples are just meant to be together.
Some couples are just madeee for each other! You know what they say though. There is someone for everyone.— Leah D. Messer (@TM2LeahDawn) May 7, 2016
A source also confirmed to The Ashley's Reality Roundup that the two are still together.
"He may not be living with Leah full time but they are still together and is seen at the house all the time," the source explained. "Leah is actually about to move (again) but she hasn't really talked about whether or not T.R. will live with her at the new place."
And another source told Radar Online that Messer has good reason for keeping the relationship under wraps. "She wants to look like a stable single mom to the judge in order for her to get her girls back."
I think it makes perfect sense why Messer would want to keep as much of her private life as private as possible. The girl has been through the ringer regarding custody of her daughters, and it's important for her to find stability and balance. But that stability and balance doesn't necessarily mean she can't also find personal happiness and intimacy with a relationship.
