(Newser) – The young mom who seemed to have the best hopes of a normal family life on the latest season of MTV's Teen Mom has filed for divorce, reports E! Online. Leah Messer, mom of twin 18-month-old daughters, is divorcing Corey Simms just six months after their wedding for cheating on her and a battle over money, reports In Touch. Photos of the couple's camouflage wedding ceremony were featured just last month on the cover of Us Weekly magazine.

Simms pushed his 18-year-old bride over the edge when he withdrew $19,000 from their joint bank account to buy himself a truck, said a pal. “He did it without telling Leah, even though the money is mostly her earnings from MTV,” a friend said. “When she found out, they had a vicious fight and she left him.” Click for more on the split.
