From drug abuse rumors to bad parenting allegations, Leah Messer has made headlines for her behavior over the years. But with each controversy, the Teen Mom 2 star has an explanation to take the heat off her! Click through to hear her top 10 excuses.
Leah sparked drug abuse rumors when she slurred her words and passed out while working at a tanning salon on TM2. During the reunion special, Leah blamed her behavior on the side effects of her anxiety medication.
On a recent episode, Leah served her daughters dinner and got them into bed at midnight on a school night! After receiving hate for the scene, Leah turned to Twitter to blame MTV. “The funny thing is it was NOT 12 am,” she said.
Leah’s ex-husband Corey Simms took his ex-wife to court to file for full custody of their twin daughters after Leah missed taking their disabled daughter, Ali, to physical therapy multiple times. On one episode, Ali missed therapy because Aleeah was sick. But Corey didn’t buy her excuse. He fired at his ex, “You’re a fake a** mom right now!”
Leah also excused her way out of fights with her second ex-husband Jeremy Calvert. Jeremy fired at his ex-wife for not cleaning out the back of their trunk, as objects fell on top of their 2-year-old daughter Adalynn. “Addie was pulling the stuff down but that wasn’t shown, nor was it shown that I just got back from being out of town and had not unloaded my car yet,” she explained.
Life & Style magazine reported that the cops were called on Leah for not having her daughters in car seats when she dropped them off to school. “After I strap them in and adjust them, they readjust them on their own when I’m driving,” she said.
Leah made headlines yet again when she passed out on a recent episode while holding her brother’s baby! “That wasn’t accurate,” she tweeted. “My brother was like… wtf?”
Leah accused MTV of scripting a recent scene where Corey and Jeremy discussed her reported prescription pill problem. “I talked to Jeremy the whole time… Jeremy can’t stand Corey.. This was definitely SET UP and not even the truth," she fired.
RadarOnline.com reported that the mother-of-three is living with single father T.R. Dues. But the MTV star has denied the relationship from day one!
Although Leah admitted to spanking her daughter Aleeah during a temper tantrum, she blamed the incident on being stressed out.
Before Leah’s rehab stint for stress and depression, she confessed to her mother that she did take painkillers. But she explained that she only took them because of the spinal tap she had while she was pregnant with her youngest daughter.
