Jeremy Calvert and Leah Messer, formerly of MTV’s Teen Mom 2, are still legally married months after he accused his wife of having an affair. Insiders reveal, the reason they’re not getting a divorce is for their families.
“Jeremy’s family is very old-fashioned and country,” a source said of Jeremy’s West Virginia relatives. “They are furious that he wants to end the marriage, and think he and Leah should stick it out despite the hard times.”
The source added “The truth is it’s a really f**ked up situation. They don’t even live together anymore.”
A week ago, Leah tweeted to a fan “Jeremy and I are still married!” She also tweeted recently, “Sometimes you just need to distance yourself from people. If they care, they’ll notice. If they don’t, you know where you stand.”
However, Jeremy has allegedly been sexting other women and saying that he’s single. Although it looks like any legal separation won’t come any time soon.
Previously, a source revealed, “Leah’s daughters are her number one priority. Now that the show could lead her to lose custody, she’s ready to leave her reality TV life behind.” Another source admitted, “She always thought she’d be able to win him back. The fact that she can’t has made her a total mess. She’s hit rock bottom. They’ve been having problems for a while now, and Leah cheating in October was the final straw.”
