“Teen Mom 2” star Leah Calvert posted a poem as rumors about her alleged drug habit continue to swirl after the show's Season 6 premiere Thursday. The young mother, who is now twice divorced, was even accused of substance abuse by her first husband, Corey Simms, in a sneak-peek clip for MTV reality show.
Instead of addressing gossip, she asked her fans how they liked the Season 6 debut of "TM2" on her official Twitter page and also posted a poem that Mother Teresa is credited with writing. The saint supposedly wrote the poem on the wall of her children’s home in Calcutta, India. “People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway,” part of the poem reads. Leah, 23, didn’t give any further analysis. In fact, the poem was listed on her page as a retweet. It was originally posted in April 2014.

In Episode 1, titled “Keeping It Moving,” Leah and Corey fight for custody of their twin daughters; Ali and Aleeah, 5. She is told she will have to take a drug test, and Leah notes that she is taking prescription drugs for headaches.
But she might be doing more pills than that. In the trailer Corey tells her, “I know there’s a problem!” Last season, the “TM2” cameras caught her nodding off multiple times. Leah spent up to $1,000 a week on 30 to 40 pills, a source told In Touch Weekly in April. She has since completed a 30-day stay in rehab, Radar Online wrote, where she took a hiatus from social media in May.
Don’t miss Episode 2 of “TM2” when it airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
