Leah Messer Blames Corey Simms For Ali’s Wheelchair Saga!
This week on Teen Mom 2, Leah Messer's sweet daughter, Ali Simms, finally got her very own wheelchair! The problem? It's actually not her very own wheelchair — it's a loaner chair from the hospital where Ali's muscular dystrophy was first diagnosed, and Leah ain't happy.
This West Virginia mountain mama is all about Ali being able to wheel around with her sister, while her ex-husband, Corey Simms, doesn't seem completely on board with Ali's new ride. Unfortunately, this little lady's chair is covered through Corey's insurance — and it looks like he's not going to bat for his daughter.
Leah has subtweeted about her frustration with Corey in the past, but this week she spoke in no uncertain terms about his unwillingness to talk to the insurance company about Ali's chair. "I hope everyone enjoyed tonight's episode," Leah tweeted. "we still have the loaner chair, but sadly it's out of my hands. We are thankful for what we have."
Leah also shaded Corey directly, saying, "It's out of my hands. They are going through coreys insurance and it takes him to get things where they need to be with ins." She also added, "I've tried and they can't release info and I can't give them the approvals they need. It takes Corey."
Corey clearly isn't willing to give this matter the attention it needs — probably because he doesn't believe that Ali needs a wheelchair. This hunk has always been somewhat blind to the realities of Ali's condition, but do you think he's taking things too far? Sure, Ali has her loaner chair, but how hard can it be to call an insurance company?
