Leah Messer Spills on Her Divorce: “My Cheating Was Not Even an Issue at the Time”
Watching Leah Calvert and Corey Simms go through a divorce on Teen Mom 2 is even more painful than watching ourselves plow through a dozen cream-filled doughnuts. It's hard to know the catalyst for their split, but Leah's infidelity is usually to blame. However, girlfriend insists that her cheating had nothing to do with the divorce.
"He can say it was the cheating, he can say whatever he wants," Leah tells Suchin Pak during Teen Mom 2's after-show. "But that was not even an issue at the time. For us. That was not an issue at all. We equally forgave each other, and then the house and truck situation came up during marriage, and everything went to that." Despite the cheating, the truck, and the fact that Corey refused to be hatless, Leah admits that the divorce may have gone down because neither she nor Corey were ready to get married. "I do think we rushed into the marriage quickly," she says. "We just wanted the family, like husband and wife, and the kids. Both of us knew that we shouldn't have got married, because we were both doing things that we shouldn't have been doing at the time. Right a week before we got married. But it was like, we're gonna do it anyway."
Sigh, young love. Can't live with it, can't live without it.
