Teen Mom star heading to rehab for her addiction issues


It hasn't been the best month so far for Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer.

Earlier this week, the mum-of-three was served with divorce papers by her estranged husband Jeremy Calvert, with whom she has a two-year-old daughter Adalynn.

The divorce filing comes after months of cheating allegations on both sides after three years of marriage.

In another dramatic move, the 22-year-old is now reportedly headed to rehab to finally deal with her painkiller addiction issues head on. 

"She has a problem," a source told InTouch magazine. "And knows she has no other choice than to go to rehab immediately."

If Leah does enter rehab, it's thought her previous husband Corey Simms will take over the care of their five-year-old twins Ali and Aleeh, with Jeremy looking after Adalynn in the hopes of seeking primary custody of her during the divorce proceedings.

MTV are keen to pay for Leah's treatment, according to another insider. "MTV would foot the bill and force Leah into rehab because the network loves her,” reveals the source. “They last thing they want to see is her going down the same dark path that [co-stars] Amber Portwood and Jenelle Evans did.

As for Leah, she is trying to keep her situation quiet for now. "She won’t say she has a drug problem or needs rehab,” the source says. “She’s saying she’s going to go away to a ‘therapy intervention’ place for three or four weeks so she can find herself and help herself be a better person.”

Whatever the reasons behind her stint in rehab, we wish Leah a full recovery.
