Former Teen Mom 2 reality star Leah Messer and her estranged husband, Jeremy Calvert, reportedly feel producers edited her to look bad. And it’s because of this footage that fans think Leah has been abusing prescription medication.
“Leah was a total zombie. She was so upset and nervous,” admitted a source of Leah’s emotional distress on the show dealing with her three young children (one of whom is disabled). “In order to calm her nerves, she was prescribed anti-anxiety pills by a doctor.”
She had some side effects. However, those were the “normal side effect of the pills” and “It took a few days for her body to adjust to the medication. She was clearly not herself.”
Jeremy agreed the crew were manipulating the situation and filming things that were unflattering. He reportedly “told off a cameraman for filming her in such a state. He didn’t think it was right… They knew the extreme stress she was going through. They took advantage of her during a difficult period.”
The source adds, the only reason Leah has taken drugs such as Lortab is for the “constant pain” from a “botched epidural” while giving birth to baby Adalynn in February 2013.
Previously, Leah confirmed to fans she would not return for the new season of Teen Mom 2. Insiders speculated that it was due to her marriage breakdown and that she may be headed for rehab of MTVs dime.
