Leah Messer is about to return to our screens for a new season of Teen Mom 2.
In the footage, shot months ago, her marriage is on its last legs and, in one scene, she appears to be on something (she’s allegedly on prescription painkillers and reportedly has a serious problem). Since then, Leah and Jeremy Calvert have divorced. This is the 23-year-old’s second divorce. She is a single mother of three.
Leah is currently in 30-day rehab, dealing with emotional issues, claims her family, and she’s facing a custody battle. In some good news, however, she does have a new boyfriend (she met him, and moved him in with her mother and kids, after only a few WEEKS…. DAYS, actually, if you believe some sources).
Sources say, there is a reason Leah is apparently so unstable. She had a “traumatic childhood.”
“She had a very rough time growing up,” claims an insider. “Many people, even her close friends, don’t know that she dealt with a lot of pain and suffering when she was a very young girl.”
“Of course she is getting help for her drug problem, but she is also learning to cope with her past,” adds the friend of Leah’s stay in rehab. Leah’s emotional issues allegedly include “sobbing in a state of panic” for no apparent reason. Leah has also admitted to having anxiety.
“She was far more emotionally disturbed [than fans saw on camera] and her addiction was already serious at that point,” the insider added. “No one knew what to do.”
