Teen Mom 2
Divorce Details

MTV’s Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer and Corey Simms are getting divorced after only being married for six months. Sources are saying accusations of infidelity, including Corey flirting with a girl on Facebook, and money issues caused a huge rift between the young couple.

Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer tweeted on March 9 that "Just for the record, Corey and I are NOT divorcing," however, online records show that the couple did end up filing for a divorce last week. In fact, the official announcement was in the divorce filings section of the Charleston Gazette-Mail newspaper and read, "Leah Messer Simms from Corey Simms."

What happened to cause the young parents of 18-month-old twins Aleeah and Aliannah to divorce?

Messer was spotted filming season two of Teen Mom 2 and crying as she read what was initially thought to be divorce papers to a friend. As it turns out, the papers were not divorce papers, but a print-out of Facebook messages between Corey and a girl named Jordan.

Starcasm was able to zoom in on the papers and caught the following messages that were written this month:

"You are very attractive"


"Thank you =) So are you…well…in a manly way. Lol."

Was this the start of an affair that ended their relationship?

Other gossip mags are saying that money problems contributed to their break-up. Corey reportedly withdrew $19,000 from their joint bank account to buy a truck, while Leah wanted to use the money for a home (they currently live in a trailer) and for Aliannah's medical bills.

"He did it without telling Leah, even though the money is mostly her earnings from MTV," a source told In Touch. "When she found out, they had a vicious fight and she left him."

Messer has signed on for two more seasons of Teen Mom 2 -- and insiders tell OK! magazine that Leah is "more into the fame than he is" and that Corey "just wanted to live his life -- he's just a redneck."

They were too young to have children. She needs to make sure now that her money is hers alone. She also needs to watch out if they divorce. When the women are the major earners, that's the time the men try and sue for custody. They use the excuse that "she was never home." Yeah, right. She was never home because she was out working. Someone had to.
