“A few months ago, Leah asked Corey for more money and it really pissed him off,” a source tells InTouch, noting that Leah’s second husband, pipeline engineer Jeremy Calvert, supports the couple financially. Also, Leah has admitted overspending in the past.
The source says, “To get back at her, [Corey] asked for full custody of Ali and Aleeah — and used her recent prescription-medication use as grounds as well.”
The source reveals, “[Leah] couldn’t believe that Corey would stoop so low, especially since he knows that she’s a good mom. She’s sober now.” Moreover, “Leah was caught off guard” because she and Corey “have gotten along and co-parent their kids so well. She doesn’t understand why Corey would do something like this.”
Leah recently admitted of her financial problems and finding the money for daughter Ali’s treatment, “It’s stressful because insurance doesn’t cover the whole cost.” She revealed, “One bill alone was $20,000.”
Previously, Leah said of her marriage to Jeremy, “Divorce is not an option for us.” She added, “I truly believe that Jeremy is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and my girls, and I really think we can overcome anything.”
Leah also admits that couple’s counselling has worked, “It’s helped us to see each other’s feelings from a different point of view. We’re doing our best to fix our relationship.” She continued, “We’ve had problems, but Jeremy and I promise each other every day that we’re never going to give up. In the end, I feel like that’s what marriage is all about.”
