‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Leah Messer Responds After Jenelle Evans Shades Her Over Parenting


Leah Messer clapped back after Jenelle Evans defended her own parenting by slamming her former Teen Mom 2 costar.

Evans, 27, took to Twitter on Friday, July 19, to hit back at fans who criticized her after she temporarily lost custody of two of her children in the wake of a scandal involving her husband, David Eason. In May, the pipe welder admitted to shooting and killing her French bulldog, Nugget, after claiming it bit their daughter, Ensley 2.

“None of you can stand that fact that my family is back together,” the former reality TV star tweeted after regaining custody earlier this month of son Kaiser, 5, and Ensley as well as Eason’s daughter Maryssa, 11. “I’m a damn good mom, regardless of anyone else’s opinion. Don’t let anyone bring you down!”

When someone replied, “A good Mom doesn’t have to get on social media and announce to the world that she’s a good Mom,” Evans shot back, “Well guess what? I’m a DAMN GOOD MOM AND WILL SHOUT IT UNTIL YOUR EARS BLEED.”

She then called out Messer, 27, after another commenter wrote, “Good moms don’t get their kids taken away. Just saying…”

“So I guess Leah’s not a good mom? She got her kids taken and given back just like me.”

A fan then defended Messer, writing, “Don’t you EVER compare yourself to @TM2LeahDawn. Your situations were not similar, she always had the rights to see her children UNSUPERVISED. Her custody agreement changed for a moment and that is all. Stfu for ONCE.”

Messer, who told Us Weekly in October 2018, that she “never lost custody” of her twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, 9, with ex-husband Corey Simms, then responded in her own tweet.

“She’s gotta pin her troubles on someone… why not it be me?” she wrote. “Worry about what’s good for you and those babies Jenelle. Stop attacking people on social media.”

After a fan applauded her for speaking out, Messer added, “She ain’t worth my time.”

She then retweeted Lindsie Chrisley, who wrote, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains.”

“Keep raining on a hoeeee,” she added.

Messer and Simms fought over custody of their daughters in 2015 after the MTV star sought treatment for anxiety and depression, but Messer told Us last year that their custody agreement has “always been 50/50.”

“People were like, ‘Leah lost custody,’” she added. “I almost did, but I never lost custody of my children.”

While Evans regained custody of her two youngest children, her eldest son, Jace, 9, remains in the custody of the former MTV star’s mom, Barbara Evans, who he has lived with for most of his life.
