Corey Simms Doesn’t Use Social Media

He also doesn’t seem to be active on Twitter either, as only one unverified account with his name has been silent since 2020.

What Happened With Corey in the ‘Teen Mom 2’ 2021 Reunion?
During the 2019 reunion, Leah’s ex Jeremy slammed Corey because he didn’t think he was putting in enough effort as a dad. Not only that, but Leah even thought that Miranda’s presence around the kids felt tense. Corey then promptly blasted the two reality stars on Twitter.
“Miranda has been nothing but great to Ali and Aleeah since the very beginning, constantly making sure that everything the girls need or want they get,” Corey tweeted at the time. “Loving and caring for them unconditionally. The girls never once came to me about any issues of such. And for Mr. Dad of the Year to run his mouth about not going to doctors appointments, how many have you been to there big guy??”
Despite the heated exchange, Corey confirmed that he and Jeremy patched things up by the 2021 reunion.
“At the time, I was very angry,” the dad of three said in the special. “I didn’t have the chance to stick up for Miranda or myself, so that struck a nerve.”
Even Jeremy confessed he “overstepped [his] boundaries” and said he had “reached out to Corey three weeks ago.”
“I apologize for saying what I said,” Jeremy added.
Corey and Leah Made Arrangements for Their Kids During COVID-19
In an In Touch exclusive sneak peek for a November 2020 episode of TM2, Leah opened up about how she and Corey planned visits during the pandemic. The former MTV star was particularly concerned over daughter Ali’s musical dystrophy condition had she contracted COVID-19.
“The twins haven’t seen their dad, but Corey and I spoke and came up with a plan,” Leah said in the preview. “It’s very scary that Ali could be exposed to the coronavirus because she does have musical dystrophy, which makes her a part of that vulnerable population. But I trust Corey. We’re raising kids in a split home. They need both units, always, even during a pandemic.”
