Just weeks after finalizing her divorce from Jeremy Calvert, “Teen Mom 2” star Leah Messer was thought to be dating a new man named T.R. Dues. During part two of the “Teen Mom 2” Season 6 reunion show Wednesday, Leah, 23, was adamant she’s not in a relationship.
During a heated discussion with her ex-husband, Corey Simms, about her trip to rehab and rumored drug use in Season 6, Corey decided to bring up her dating life. Corey, who shares 5-year-old twins Ali and Aleeah with Leah, accused Leah of bringing an unnamed man around their kids.
“I’m not dating anybody,” Leah responded, according to Us Weekly. “We were at a cookout with a guy. He does not live with me.”
“Then why are the girls telling me he lives with you and ya'll sleep together?” Corey asked. "It's not a big deal. It's the simple fact that I would like to meet the guy that's around my children."
Leah went on to claim that her suspected new boyfriend is “just a friend" and that Corey has already met him. “Right now a guy is the least of my worries,” she added.
Prior to the reunion show premiere, Leah opened up about her love life during a “Teen Mom 2” Facebook Q&A. When asked by a fan if she hopes to find love again, Leah said, “When the time is right.” When another supporter questioned if she would consider getting married for a third time, she said it wasn’t “even a thought in my mind.”
Despite Leah’s denial that she’s not attached, the Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports that T.R. accompanied her to the “Teen Mom 2” reunion show in July. At the time of the taping, the site reports the duo has been together for “several months.”
Leah was first linked to T.R., a personal trainer and father of two, in June. The Ashley reported that the couple met in May after T.R. was hired by MTV to be Leah’s personal trainer. One week after her divorce from Jeremy, their relationship is said to have “quickly escalated.” Leah and T.R. were rumored to be house hunting together near Charleston, West Virginia, later that month.
While Leah has posted a photo of T.R. with her girls – she also shares 2-year-old daughter Adalynn with Jeremy – on Facebook, both have refused to confirm their rumored romance. T.R. recently took to the social media site refusing to answer any and all questions about his dating life.
“If u have never ask me any other time who I’m dating or who I’m with don’t ask me now [sic],” T.R. wrote. “I don’t ask you ever who you with nor do I care.”
