“Teen Mom 2” star Corey Simms isn’t a man of many words, but when it comes to his twin daughters, Alianna and Aleeah Grace, the West Virginia native wanted to set the record straight. The reality star took to Twitter to address some rumors. But it seemed like he was addressing accusations that his ex-wife went to rehab for reputed drug addiction.
“I don't know why I'm tweeting this because I honestly do not care what people think or what they say about me but anyways, there is a reason for everything that Miranda and myself have said or done. We simply want the girls to grow up in a safe and healthy environment,” he wrote Friday, a day after “Teen Mom 2” documented Messer leaving for treatment.
Even though it’s suspected that she sought rehab for a drug addiction to prescription pain pills, the mother of three maintains she wanted to get help for stress and anxiety. Despite her denials, Messer seemed to nod off with her youngest daughter, Adalynn, in her arms.
Thank you to the people who understand and to the people that don't well that just sucks now don't it?

In previous episodes, Simms told Messer he “knows there’s a drug problem.” He alluded to that theory in his Twitter statement Friday. “There is a lot of things that has been told to us by very close members of her family that lead us to believe the things being told are very much true,” Simms, 25, continued. “If we didn't care about the girls or the situation, we would obviously not have anything to say or do about it.”
In a sneak-peek clip for the new episode, Simms picks up his twin daughters from Messer’s mom, Dawn Spears. When Spears told Simms she wanted to take his girls to see Messer, 23, in treatment for Mother’s Day, he demanded to know where the facility is located.
Messer doesn’t act like a woman who’s in turmoil and shared social media posts about all her blessings. “All you can do is pray for those that live in misery and try to hurt others,” she wrote Monday. “I could never be more thankful for the blessings in my life,” Messer tweeted Aug. 14.
Misconception comes with the territory.
