It's official, y'all: Leah Messer and Jeremy Calvert have separated. By which we mean they've separated physically — not to be confused with romantically. Their relationship is steamier than ever, fear not!

This hot couple have experienced all kinds of ch-ch-ch-changes in the past year, and hot off the heels of finding out that they need to sell their house, it looks like Jeremy's work has taken him to the mysterious desert that is New Mexico. More specifically Roswell, New Mexico, home of the aliens.

Leah hinted that Jeremy was leaving on a jet plane a few weeks ago when she tweeted "This just isn't going to be easy," and Jeremy responded "I'll b back home before you know it babe." Now Jeremy has confirmed his move, tweeting "Chilly morning in Roswell screw this desert sh—."

So, how long will this hunky Southerner be away for, and what's he up to in Roswell? That remains to be seen. As far as we know, Jeremy is still a pipeline worker, and there's a little somethin' somethin' called the Transwestern Pipeline in Roswell.

Then again, it's also possible that Jeremy's in Roswell to do groundbreaking research on aliens — after all, a UFO crashed there! Or maybe Jeremy's a huge fan of the late and great WB series of the same name and he's on a fanboy pilgrimage. Yep, that must be it.

Why do you think Jeremy is in New Mexico? Dish your theories in the comments!
