Teen Mom stars Leah Messer and her husband Jeremy Calvert failed to pay their taxes and were hit with a $10,598 tax lien in March of this year. While court records show the married couple paid their debts by May, Leah has opened up about the struggle to pay bills after one of her twin daughters was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Leah’s daughter Ali requires frequent out-of-state trips to specialists, a motorized wheelchair, and special therapy.
On top of all of her daughter’s medical problems, Leah is involved in a major custody battle with her ex-husband and father of her daughter, Corey Simms. Leah also is prescribed anxiety medication but Corey claims that Leah is a drug addict who spends a lot of money supporting her addiction. Of Ali’s medical bills, Leah says:
“It’s stressful because insurance doesn’t cover the whole cost. One bill alone was $20,000.”
Still even more stressful is the fact that Leah’s husband Jeremy and father of her youngest two-year-old daughter Adalynn, recently accused her of cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend Robbie Kidd. Jeremy even said that he would be filing divorce papers soon. Leah’s alleged drug dealer has also come forward saying:
“She’s picked up 30 to 40 pills at a time from me. [Leah has been] getting high for years. I’ve seen Leah pop a handful of pills, chew them like they were candy and swallow them.”
