After RadarOnline recently reported that she is “suicidal” in the wake of losing custody of her twins, Ali and Aleeah, 5, the West Virginia native, 23, took to Twitter on Thursday, Nov. 12, to set the record straight.

The court recently granted Messer’s ex-husband Corey Simms primary custody of their daughters, which the MTV star admitted to Us caused her a lot of personal pain. 

“I have done so much to become a better person, it was like a slap in the face at first,” she told Us at the time. “It hurt me. It made me angry.”

Back in June, Messer completed a 30-day treatment program for depression and anxiety, which Simms still claims was centered around her “prescription pill problem.”

But Messer, who is also mom to 2-year-old Addie, whom she shares with ex-husband Jeremy Calvert, has insisted she never abused drugs. “I’ve had to take drug tests, and not just a regular pee drug test,” she told Us, adding of Simms, “You would think that a father would want the best for his children, not to continue to attack their mother for no reason.”
