UPDATE: These “divorce documents” are actually printed out Facebook messages that may or may not be correspondence between Corey and another girl. Click here to find out more.
Ever since OK! and In Touch both published stories that Teen Mom 2 couple Leah Messer and Corey Simms were separated and getting a divorce the Teen Mom universe has been up in arms waiting for confirmation one way or the other. All has been uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter and Facebook leading many to speculate the rumors may be true.
Sadly, we can now confirm that they are. These photos of a very emotional Leah Messer were taken earlier today as she reportedly read documents related (click here to see what they are, and what they say) to her divorce aloud to a friend while MTV cameras rolled, filming for Teen Mom 2 Season 2.
If that’s not proof enough for you, then check out this screen capture from wvgazette.com which lists Leah and Corey’s name under “The following people filed for divorce in Kanawha County between April 8 and 15.” (Their names are highlighted in yellow at the very bottom of the list.)
I don’t know about you but I’m horribly depressed. There’s still no word on how the custody of the couples twins Aliannah and Aleeah will work out or what the real reason for the split was. Both OK! and In Touch claim it was because of money – one claiming Leah insisted on buying a larger house and the other saying Corey spent $19,000 on a pick-up truck without asking Leah – but we still don’t have any idea what the actual reasons for the split were.

UPDATE - There have been a number of commenters suggesting that the papers in Leah’s hand are not divorce documents, so I just wanted to clarify by stating the photographer who took the pictures provided this caption to Splash News:
Leah Messer cries while reading over her divorce papers. Leah read over her divorce papers with a friend in Elkview, WV. Leah could not control her emotions as she read aloud her divorce papers. Leah was later spotted making her way to her car again she broke down and cried more. And of course MTV cameras where there filming the entire thing for an upcoming episode of ‘Teen Mom 2′.
It could very well be that the papers are not divorce documents and just something having to do with the separation. Some have speculated that they may be emails between her and Corey or something along those lines. If there’s anyone out there with any expertise, here are some zoomed in images of the papers themselves:
