Leah Messer Reveals The Real Reason She Went to Rehab on ‘Teen Mom 2’ After Show


The ladies of Teen Mom 2 sat down for the unofficial therapy session known as The After Show this week, and it was a great opportunity for Leah Messer to enlighten fans about her stint in rehab.

Leah candidly admitted that "things were spiraling out of control" before her month-long treatment session, and that she almost didn't seek help because of the assumption that she was using drugs.

"A lot of people put a stigma on getting help in general," Leah said. "Automatically, I'm a drug addict. Just because I'm asking for help it means I'm a drug addict?"

Leah was worried that if she admitted to needing therapy, her ex-husband, Corey Simms, would use it against her in their ongoing custody battle. "I was scared if I say I'm gonna get help, I'm gonna lose my kids," she explained. "At the end of the day, if someone judges me or I lose my kids if I'm reaching out for help, what kinda world do we live in?"

Leah also explained that she's not jumping into a relationship post-divorce from Jeremy Calvert — she reportedly isn’t actually dating her trainer, T.R Dues, as we all thought — but the same can't be said for Jenelle Evans, who was still with Nathan Griffith at the time the After Show filmed.

Jenelle seemed happy they were working things out, but her co-star friends weren't on board. "You deserve better and you shouldn't deserve that s––," Chelsea Houska said. "There's so much happiness outside of what you're in right now. "
