Rumor has it two “Teen Mom 2” stars want to part ways with the MTV docuseries. Following Leah Messer’s recent drama surrounding her divorce from Jeremy Calvert, rumored drug use and a trip to rehab — allegedly for stress and depression — her two exes are said to be looking to quit the reality program.
Leah’s first husband, Corey Simms, has reportedly had enough of dealing with his ex-wife’s antics on camera. According to Life & Style, the 25-year-old father of two will not star on future seasons of “Teen Mom 2.”
“Corey is done with the show,” a source told the magazine. “He’s told MTV he will not be return for another season. He doesn’t think the money is worth the aggravation anymore.”
On the current season of “Teen Mom 2,” Corey is battling Leah, 23, over a custody arrangement for their 5-year-old twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah. In the Season 6 premiere Corey requested the courts give him primary custody of their twins. Once Leah passed a court-ordered drug test, she was able to retain custody of their girls.
But it’s not just Corey who is rumored to be quitting the docuseries. According to the magazine’s report, Leah’s second husband, Jeremy Calvert, with whom she shares daughter Adalynn, 2, is also considering walking away from the show. His rumored plan comes less than two months after the former couple finalized their divorce. “Jeremy also wants out of ‘Teen Mom’ but he hasn’t made any formal moves yet,” an insider said.

Despite Corey reportedly having warned MTV about his plans to leave the show, that didn’t stop him from completing a fan Q&A on the network’s “Teen Mom 2” Facebook page Thursday. His commentary came ahead of the premiere of the show’s latest Season 6 episode, “Not Good Enough.”
While Corey did not touch on his speculated plans to quit the program, he did open up about his co-parenting struggles with Leah. He also admitted to be “stressed to the max” while filming the show. “The hardest thing about co-parenting with Leah would be that we have different approaches on how to raise the girls,” he wrote. “We don’t often see eye to eye.”
