Since divorcing in 2011, Teen Mom 2 stars Leah Calvert and Corey Simms have been able to get along and effectively co-parent their twin girls, Ali and Aleeah. On the current season of the show, however, fans have watched as their co-parenting plan has fallen apart, and relations between Corey and Leah, as well as their spouses, Miranda Simms and Jeremy Calvert, have become strained, due to disagreements over Ali’s medical bills and care, and child support. On this week’s episode (recap coming soon!) things came to a head for Leah and Corey. Cameras rolled as the exes screamed and cussed at each other over Ali’s wheelchair situation.
Leah took a lot of criticism for demanding more money from Corey for the girls. On Thursday, she used her official Facebook page to explain to her fans what was really going on between her and her ex. She started the post by admitting it was wrong for her to use profanity in front of the girls.
“I am writing to update my fans on last night’s episode, 9/10/14,” she posted on Thursday. “I am admitting that I shouldn’t have been using bad language in front of my children. It was in the heat of the moment and It was a scene where you only saw certain parts of the filming!”
Leah went on to reveal some private facts about the custody agreement she has (had?) with her ex-husband.
“As for the child support issue, He was ordered, by the State of WV, the $1200 a month in child support,” Leah wrote. “I wanted to work with him and was willing to accept $800 a month.”
Leah says she agreed to the reduced child support rate so that Corey would be financially able to help pay off Ali’s medical bills.
“Approximately 6 months after that he wasn’t paying his half of the medical bills, to which all of them were in my name and I was getting collection letters,” Leah wrote. “I agreed to lower his payments to $200 a month so we could pay off the medical bills. This agreement lasted for a year and they never were paid. This is when we went back to court, to get the bills paid and out of collections! Also, to restore my credit.”
Leah ended her post by reminding ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans that the show is very edited and that they are not getting the entire story when they watch an episode.
“The truth will reveal itself in time!! Remember what you see on TV is only 1/3 of what is actually going on!! Thank you for your support, I love each and everyone of you!” she wrote.
Corey and Miranda have yet to respond to Leah’s post via social media, but a sneak peek from next week’s episode shows a frustrated Corey discussing the situation with Miranda in the car.
“I just hate how it’s become a personal thing,” Corey tells Miranda. “I hate that we argue at our drop-off. From day one, I never wanted the girls to witness me and Leah having a heated argument.”
