TEEN Mom 2 star Leah Messer slammed ex Corey Simms and wife Miranda Patterson for not providing a “safe place” for her during her years of addiction.
The 28-year-old confronted her ex about her past with substance abuse during Tuesday’s episode of Teen Mom 2.
After becoming trained to carry Naloxone, Leah told her sister Victoria that she wanted to have a conversation with Corey about her addiction.
She said that she had been “scared” in the past to talk to her ex about it “because of the stigma” as they were in court fighting over custody of their daughters.
Leah and Corey, 31, share 10-year-old twins Aliannah and Aleeah.
Leah broke down in tears as she told her sister: “It just breaks my heart.
“That situation, though, no one would get it unless you’ve been through it.”
The Teen Mom 2 star then confronted Corey as they met to drop off their children.
As their daughters sat in Leah’s car, the TV personalities spoke about how they’re in a much better place now that she’s gotten her drug problem under control.
Corey noted that they hadn’t had “a disagreement in years” and said they’re relationship “used to not be good.”
Leah then brought up her addiction and said she “hadn’t really ever talked to you about it.”
Leah told Corey: “You didn’t know after I had Addy that they put me on multiple different painkillers.
He responded: “I didn’t know all of the details. All I know is that you have progressed.”
She called the experience “scary” and added: “I look back at that moment and I wish each of us, all of us including your wife, could have communicated it a little different, provided that safe place for me as an addict.”
Corey said that he and Miranda were initially “supportive,” though it “turned to anger.”
He continued: “We could’ve communicated better. Our communication now is where it should be. I dreaded the drop-offs for years, but now it’s pretty simple.”
Leah also spoke to ex Jeremy Calvert, 31, earlier in the episode about her addiction.
The exes share seven-year-old daughter Adalyn.
While on a FaceTime call, Leah shared her plans to become “trained to carry Naloxone,” which she explained is “a nasal spray used to counteract an opioid overdose.”
The TV personality explained she wanted to be open about her past struggles with both of her baby daddies, noting: “At the end of the day, you and Corey are both the dads to my daughters and our kids could potentially have that same struggle down the road.”
Leah opened up about her addiction is her memoir Hope, Grace & Faith.
She claimed that she suffered a “botched” spinal tap in 2013 when she had a C-section with daughter Addie.
The MTV star alleged the hospital prescribed her with painkillers Hydrocodone, Oxycodone and Tylenol 3, and that the opioids sent her “over the edge,” which lead to the beginning of her substance abuse.
