I post about blind items sometimes, just because it’s fun to speculate about which girls from the show are making poor life choices and trying to keep them under the table.
Blind items have revealed in the past that Maci Bookout made a pornographic film while partying in Miami, that Farrah Abraham was selling herself for sex, and that an unknown Teen Mom 2 star was photographed using meth. While there’s really no way to tell if these items are true or not, most of them don’t seem like they’re too far from reality.
This blind item is short and simple, but it packs a punch for sure. It states:
This Teen Mom is using her child support money to support the drug habit of herself and significant other. She has already run through her money from the show.
Well…let’s narrow things down.
If we look at the girls from Teen Mom, then Maci is the only one that would be receiving child support. We’ve heard that she’s in trouble for not paying her taxes, which means she doesn’t have a ton of money anyway, but it might not be extremely far-fetched if Maci ended up being a drug addict. Farrah is a single mother (when she’s actually with her kid) and since Sophia’s father died, she wouldn’t be receiving child support. Amber doesn’t have primary custody of Leah, but seems to co-parent with Gary pretty well. Since she doesn’t have Leah the majority of the time, it would be assumed that SHE would be paying the child support for her daughter. Catelynn and Tyler gave their daughter up for adoption, so they obviously don’t receive child support either.
The Teen Mom 2 cast has some promising story lines, and three girls that receive child support. Jenelle has a history with drugs, but doesn’t receive or pay child support because Jace’s father is out of the picture and Barbara allowed Jenelle to quit paying her child support once Jace was with his mother more frequently.
Chelsea may or may not receive child support. It’s always off and on whether she’s getting money or not. I would also go out on a limb here and say that even though Chelsea may enjoy to have a few drinks while Aubree is with Adam’s family for the weekend, she still had a job that will pay the bills after the MTV money is gone. Although we know that Chelsea has been allegedly dating someone for a short amount of time, we don’t know enough about this guy to assume that Chelsea is buying drugs for the couple.
Kailyn is married to Javi, who is in the air force. With routine drug screenings and strict rules, it’s pretty unlikely that Kailyn is providing drugs for her and Javi. Kailyn is also breastfeeding, and seems pretty adamant about making sure that the milk that gets to her son, Lincoln, is the best stuff he can have. We all remember her stressing about pumping on the episode when she went out for her 22nd birthday.
That leaves us with Leah, who seems to fit the requirements for this blind item. Leah has been pushing Corey for more child support, and on recent episodes of Teen Mom 2 it appears that she’s slurring words. While we don’t know a lot about Jeremy’s past, it’s possible that he’s had drug issues before. Leah has admitted on Teen Mom 2 that she has a spending problem, but she’s never mentioned anything about addiction.
To top things off, All The Teen Moms posted an exclusive article stating that the reason Corey wants full custody of the twins is because Leah has a history of abusing prescription painkillers. The article says that the addiction started after the birth of Jeremy and Leah’s daughter, Adalynn in February of 2013. The source told All The Teen Moms that the prescription painkiller Percocet is what Leah was taking for a while, and that her county in West Virginia is known for their drug problems.
