Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer is reportedly struggling to cope after losing custody of her twins.
Previously, Leah lost primary custody of the twins. After a legal battle, a court agreed that Leah had failed to take proper care of her girls. In particular, failing to get them to school on time (there were other issues like feeding them late and letting them go to bed late… for example, at midnight).
Leah’s first husband Corey Simms took primary custody. Leah sees the girls at weekends.
Now sources claim Leah is struggling with feeling “depressed and suicidal”.
Sources tell RadarOnline that (despite a stream of positive social media posts) Leah is not doing well.
“Leah seems deeply depressed, and everyone is very concerned,” claims the source. “She can’t imagine life without her girls.”
“[Leah’s mother] Dawn is asking friends for advice on how to help her,” adds the insider.
Leah’s refusal to admit an alleged prescription drug addiction isn’t helping.
“It’s obvious that she has struggled with pills, but she refuses to talk about it,” added the source. “If she won’t be honest, how is she ever going to truly get better?”
UPDATE Leah denied RadarOnline’s report on Twitter.
Articles that are sent to me are unbelievable ! I am far from being suicidal because my girls need me happy and healthy ! #craziness
