Not only does OK! magazine cover the separation story in their latest issue, but they just published a new report minutes ago stating both Corey, 20, and Leah, 18, just left a West Virgina courthouse this Wednesday morning to move forward with their separation.
OK! adds that they both picked up either divorce or custody papers. Deputy clerk Clarissa Harishaw from the Clay County Circuit Court told OK! “nothing has been filed today,” but confirmed the couple picked up papers this morning.
Another source tells OK! Corey met with his lawyer at 10 p.m. Tuesday night.
As for what caused the split, the couple has reportedly been fighting over financial issues and their living situation. “He and Leah have been living apart for two weeks now, and he has been very happy,” a pal of Corey’s reveals.
The couple has been married less than six months having just tied the knot on Oct. 17 in Charleston, West Virginia. They are parents to 16-month-old twin girls — Aleeah and Aliannah.
In Touch magazine also reports financial problems caused a major rift in the couple’s relationship. Leah reportedly had to endure Corey being financially irresponsible and making huge withdrawals of money including a recent withdrawal of $19,000 from their joint account.
“He did it without telling Leah, even though the money is mostly her earnings from MTV,” a friend of Leah’s said. “When she found out, they had a vicious fight and she left him.”
The same friend tells the mag “Corey is going to file for divorce” very soon and “he and Leah have been living apart for two weeks now!” In Touch adds that Corey is “always getting drunk with his friends, and can easily hook up with other girls.”
The last time a mag reported a split, Leah took to her twitter to deny the story. Oddly enough, a look at Leah’s twitter page shows she hasn’t updated it in two weeks.
