Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer has had her first post-rehab run-in with the law, according to a new report by In Touch Weekly!
The magazine broke the story that Leah recently had the cops called on her by someone at her twin daughters’ school, who was concerned after seeing Leah driving the girls around without having them in car seats.
The report goes on to state that the police stopped Leah at a later date, but found the girls buckled in during that time.
The Ashley has a bit more to add…
A while back, The Ashley told you that MTV had to shut down production several times during the filming of Season 6, due to one of the girls putting her kids in danger. Now that this story has been put out there, The Ashley can elaborate a bit more.
A very good production source tells The Ashley that the girl in question was Leah, who had (allegedly) not been putting the kids in car seats, especially in the days leading up to her leaving for rehab. (She reportedly didn’t even have any car seats where she was staying, the source added.)
“MTV had to step in and stop filming several times because it was too unsafe to have the kids riding around the car unbuckled,” the source said. “As far as I know, [production] had to go purchase car seats for the kids.”
Recently Morgan J. Freeman, the show’s executive producer, stated that the producers rarely step into a situation involving the show’s stars, unless the situation is proving to be dangerous for someone involved.
“We’re there to document things, but if someone is doing something that puts someone in harms way we would definitely step in.” Morgan told Observer in July. “There’s no science to it, it’s a human thing. If someone was in danger yes we would step in, but for parenting decisions we don’t step in. You know when that line is being crossed. We put the welfare of everyone front and center.”
Although The Ashley’s source is not aware of the production team calling the cops on Leah due to the lack of car seats, it’s possible. After all, the production crew called the cops on Nathan Griffith during his epic toilet wrestling fight with Jenelle Evans (although they later claimed it was a “neighbor” who called).
The Ashley’s source tells her that Leah’s ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, is aware of the reports and is very concerned about the welfare of his daughter with Leah, as well as the twins’ safety.
Leah is currently still in a relationship with T.R. Dues (regardless of what they and other sites tell you!) They actually just took a getaway to Kentucky together. However, they continue to deny that they are dating.
UPDATE: Leah has taken to Twitter to dismiss the story.
“Just to clarify some rumors .. I have NEVER been stopped by a cop and the girls have ALWAYS had their car seats. #Sad”
When it was pointed out that the girls were shown without proper car seats during several ‘Teen Mom 2’ scenes (including the one pictured at right), Leah tweeted an explanation.
“And just like any other kid.. After I strap them in and adjust them they “READJUST” them on their own when I’m driving .. #letsBreal”
