The last time we checked in on Miranda Simms, the wife of Teen Mom 2 star and Leah Messer’s ex-husband Corey Simms, she was defending herself against accusations of child neglect.
Specifically, that she had been neglectful toward Leah’s daughters.
By all accounts, Miranda defended herself well and convincingly argued that she was fully devoted to raising Leah and Corey Simms’ kids as her own.
Now it looks like she may not get that chance, however.
Many fans are taking a pair of cryptic Facebook posts attributed to Corey as confirmation that he and Miranda are headed for divorce.
“Starting to rethink a lot of things,” the first status update read.
Another more telling post quickly followed, reading:
“Single dad. Never thought I would do this again.”
Needless to say, it’s not hard to see how fans interpreted that brief commentary as Corey’s way of saying he and Miranda were kaput.
Many expressed their shock on social media and implored Corey to either confirm or deny the news in a less cryptic fashion.
Not that there’s any good time for news like this, but others pointed out how devastating the timing of such a split would be.
Corey and Miranda welcomed their first child in May, and they recently celebrated the third anniversary of their marriage.
Fortunately, it looks like this story has a happy ending after all.
Miranda Simms (nee Patterson) has taken to Twitter to put the rumors at rest, informing fans that they’ve been the victims of a hoax!
“That most definitely is a Fake Facebook,” Miranda tweeted.
“Corey and I have a private FB for only family & close friends!”
Some fans still have doubts, and Teen Mom 2’s marital track record is not good, but it looks like Miranda’s story checks out … for now.
After all, this isn’t the first time that the Simms has complained about a fake Facebook account spreading rumors about them.
We guess Leah Messer will just have to put the non-alcoholic champagne down and cease celebration festivities yet again.
Just kidding, Leah!
In all seriousness, you can watch Teen Mom 2 online to relive the many ups and downs (mostly downs) of the Hot Messer’s love life.
