Ever since "Teen Mom 2" season 6 star Leah Messer lost primary custody of her twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, both aged 5, media reports have been rife with speculations about her health. The reality TV star is reportedly still addicted to prescription pain killers. The reports had further claimed that her time in rehab for anxiety and depression did not help because Leah is apparently suicidal.
A recent article claimed that the mother of three was not able to manage her life without her kids. The insider revealed that Leah's mother, Dawn Spears, is worried for her and is trying to seek help from friends, according to In Touch Weekly (via Radar Online).
While Leah has been largely silent on the various accusations levelled at her, she finally broke her silence following claims that she is contemplating to commit suicide. On her Twitter handle, she said, "Articles that are sent to me are unbelievable! I am far from being suicidal because my girls need me happy and healthy ! #craziness."
Leah Messer lost primary custody of her daughters to ex-husband, Corey Simms in an 21 October ruling. The West Virginia court granted custody to Corey and his wife, Miranda Simms after taking into account Ali and Aleeah's performance at school and their punctuality. The reality TV star can only meet her kids on the weekend, according to the judgement.
Following this, some reports had claimed Leah's second ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, might try to fight for their daughter, Addie's custody.
Nevertheless, the reality star's friends have stood by her during these trying times. "Teen Mom 2" co-star, Kailyn Lowry said that people should be supportive of Leah, especially when she's trying to get back on her feet.
