‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Leah Messer Confesses She Had “No Chemistry” with Ex-Husbands Corey Simms & Jeremy Calvert; Says She’s Open to Marrying Jaylan Mobley

“If you hear the words ‘Robbie Kidd,’ man, RUN!”

Leah Messer is taking a look at her past serious relationships, noting in a new interview that her ex-husbands– Corey Simms and Jeremy Calvert— never made her have the twitchin’ in her britches that her new man, Jaylan Mobley, does.

While speaking with Page Six, the ‘Teen Mom 2’ star admitted that she didn’t feel any sparks toward her exes before marrying them. She insisted that she was just looking for someone to love her.

“There wasn’t even chemistry in these relationships,” she told Page Six. “I think I just moved so fast because I was looking for love. For me personally, it was like I wanted to be loved. It was just some sort of comfort for me.”

“You’s wrong for sayin’ that Leah. We was in love.”

“I didn’t realize until much later that I wasn’t myself [in these relationships],” Leah said of her marriages.

As ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans know, Leah and Corey got hitched in 2010, shortly after the birth of their twins. They divorced in 2011. Leah married Jeremy in 2012. They divorced in 2015.

“I thought once you got married, you had to stay married, period,” she said. “For me, divorce was liberating. I got to find who I truly was at the end of the day.”

In recent years, Jeremy and Leah played with the idea of getting back together, but eventually decided against it. 

“I ain’t gonna lie. There was some post-divorce pickle ticklin’, but we’re done with that now!”

Leah says that she would consider getting married again, if her third trip down the aisle is with Jaylan.

“We talk about what we want out of the future. Of course, Jaylan’s never been married,” Leah said. “He wants that experience and I would never take that away from him. At the same time, for me, I don’t feel like marriage should change anything. I want to keep what we have now …  I don’t want it to change our love for each other, but I don’t think it’s going to either. I’m open to it.”

As for the idea of adding anymore girlseseseses to her family, Leah said she might be willing to fire up the ol’ baby chute again eventually.

“So there won’t be no babieseses for a ding-dang while, y’all!”

“I just want to love him and get to know him even more before we add anymore kids to the picture,” she said. 

Leah says her life with Jaylan today is much less headline-worthy than her life in the early days of ‘Teen Mom 2.’ (#NeverForget the trash-filled car and canned ravioli days…)

“Before, it was hard. There were so many obstacles and challenges and the kids were young,” she said. “I had struggled with addiction and different divorces. All of that’s aired on TV. It’s not that dramatic for me now.”

“Um. So yeah, we’re gonna need you to do at least one manic gas station morning run this season, Leah. Gotta get those ratings up!”

  1. Even though they’re completely different people, a lot of the girls on TM and Y&P have the common denominator of wanting kids/family because they were abandoned and didn’t have it themselves. Hopefully Leah has learned a lot from the past and won’t rush things! I’m glad she found someone who seems good for her and is invested in her kids.


  2. Leah is crazy as hell if there wasn’t any chemistry with Corey and Jeremy. They’re hot as hell.


  3. Baby Chute lol
    What man wants a baby with a girl who has 2 baby daddies? Damaged Goods Jaylan

    RUN RUN RUN


  4. That’s a pretty bold statement to say considering Leah has been with this guy for what, 6 months? She did the same thing with Jason and Jeremy. She’s really gone out of her way to hook up with Jeremy too, considered the “lack of chemistry”.


  5. This man seems to be too educated for Leah. And he keeps talking about his “ideas” for business and investment in his grand plans.

    I’m worried that the only reason he’s drawn to Leah is her bank account and fame.

    Leah needs to get a money manager and have all “investment” decisions run through them.


  6. IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN, LEAH TURNS 30 THIS YEAR. HER NEW BOY TOY IS ONLY 25. SHE HAS TO HAVE A CHILD BEFORE TO LONG, HER BIOLOGICAL CLOCK WILL RUN OUT. AFTER ALL, SHE DID ROB THE CRADDLE….5 YEARS DIFFERENCE


    1. At their age a 5yr difference is definitely not “robbing the cradle” they’re both adults and have been for years. She still has several more child bearing years left. I personally wouldn’t want to have another baby after 36 or so but she has plenty of time if she wants to.


    2. I don’t think its her clock shes worried about it.

      It’s his clock and how long before HE runs out.


  7. IF JAYLAN IS SMART AS HE SEEM’S, HE WILL RUN. THE SHOW’S ON IT’S WAY OUT. AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS, NO MONEY COMING IN. SO SHE NEEDS TO FIND SOMEONE THAT MAKES SOME MONEY. SHE’S NEVER WORKED ANYWHERE, SO SHE’S BECOMING DESPARATED TO FIND SOMEONE TO TAKE CARE OF HER…..SORRY. THE TRUTH HURTS……


    1. Why are you using two different names to comment on here? Your spelling mistakes and inability to not use caps lock on everything gives you away.

      Although you’re not wrong, I definitely agree with you on some aspects, there’s no need to use more than one name, lmao. Leah doesn’t know what it’s like to hold down a real job and doesn’t seem all that interested in doing so. That doesn’t mean this man needs to “run away”, it just means she needs to get her head on straight and they need to have some real conversations about where life goes after TM (really, should be going now). She’s always wanted someone to take care of her, that has been present since she started with TM. I don’t see that changing anytime soon, and she’s definitely not alone in that. A lot of people prefer some type of dependency on another person. That’s a discussion for them to have, though. I may not be the kind of person that needs this dependency, and you may not either, but for some people it works.

      I hope she figures life out eventually and whatever path she heads down, she finds some level of success along the way. She owes it to her existing children to straighten things out, with or without someone else.


    1. Not to mention Mama Dawn being the one raising her….Leah’s got some serious issues that she should work through.


  8. She’s so full of it. She says this every time she’s with a new guy.
    Leah is the queen of revisionist history. Not just with guys, but with everything in her life.


    1. Yes, I’ve seen this pattern with her. One of her exes, Jason (I think that was his name?) met the girlses incredibly fast and she was saying similar things. Why does she want to marry everyone who looks at her nicely? There was a reason you were a teen mom!

      I feel like she never gets a chance to go past the “honeymoon stage” with guys she dates. She got pregnant with Cory after only a month and they had twins. Goddamnit, get to know the person before you marry them!


    2. Exactly she said that exactly same thing when she was with Corey then with Jeremy!!! There’s absolutely something about her latest bf but I can’t put my head on it!!!


  9. I believe her…didn’t she cheat on both of them with Robbie? Plus she was really young and on drugs in both marriages…you could tell she wasn’t in the right state of mind back then.


  10. Calling it now…pregnant with an oopsie baby before fall. Cause y’all know the schools aren’t well there and no one’s done ever taught Leah about birth control.


  11. Yeah Leah we’ve all had new d!ck. I’m 100% sure you aren’t yourself in this relationsh!t either. You put on a good act. You tell him what he needs to hear.

    And yes, you moved fast with this one too, bc that’s what you do. It’s who you are. And you’ll sink this one like you have the last few.


  12. Oh Leah, is this like when you get a new BF he does one thing nice for the girlsess and your all like they never had anyone act fatherly towards them?
