Leah Messer and Corey Simms have officially reached an agreement regarding custody of their twin daughters. Corey brought the "Teen Mom 2" star to court in 2015 amid reports that she was abusing prescription drugs and failing to get her children to school on time. With the help of the courts the former lovers have worked out a plan that should keep the parents, as well as Aliannah and Aleeah happy.
According to a report from Us Weekly Leah, 23, has been awarded joint custody of her daughters. She will reportedly have the children from Thursday to Sunday and return them to Corey early Monday. Their father will also get to spend one weekend a month with his daughters and has agreed to split all medical bills and other bills associated with the children down the middle. A source told the publication Leah is happy with this agreement and never for a second worried that she'd have an issue getting some sort of custody. Similarly an insider with ties to Corey told Us the father of three was happy to have finally reached an agreement "that works best for the girls." News of their joint custody agreement comes amid rumors Leah was looking to gain full custody of the children, something sources are now disputing.
"She was never asking for full custody," one source said. "She wants the girls to be able to see their dad."
Those who have been following Leah and Corey's custody issues closely may recall that the mother of three lost custody of Aliannah and Aleeah in 2015. As was previously reported a judge granted Corey primary custody of the girls after checking their school records and noticing a slew of tardies. At the time Leah told Us the twins were late just once, slamming her first ex-husband's accusations as false. She claimed to have met with members of the school board in October to correct the tardy situation.
Due to the ruling Leah was only able to spend part of her time with her older daughters. She maintained primary custody of her youngest child, Adalynn, whom she shares with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert. Around that time, however, rumors began swirling that Calvert may be considering taking Leah to court in an attempt to win primary custody for himself. Those reports surfaced after a story, published by In Touch Weekly, alleged that the toddler was found wandering outside her mother's home unattended. The Ashely's Reality Roundup then claimed that the incident had ignited "a fire" inside Jeremy, pushing him to begin seeking custody.
