Oh, boy! Leah Messer, the queen of Teen Mom drama, just can’t seem to catch a break. From divorces to addiction battles and even mysterious entanglements with Jaylan Mobley, it’s like she’s auditioning for a roller coaster instead of reality TV. But hey, every dark cloud has a silver lining, right? In Leah’s case, that lining is a big, fat paycheck from MTV. However, it appears Leah missed the memo about sharing her wealth with the IRS. Oopsie!
According to a super reliable source known as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Leah has managed to accumulate a staggering tax debt of $780,000. Yep, you read that right! It’s like she’s trying to set a new record for the most zeros on a tax bill. The latest addition to her ever-growing lien is a delightful sum of $290,297. It seems our girl Leah forgot to pay her federal taxes for the years 2018, 2020, and 2021. Oh, Leah, you really know how to charm the IRS, don’t you?
Now, owing a small fortune in taxes is not exactly uncommon among the rich and famous. But Leah’s case is a special one. You see, this Teen Mom superstar has been raking in the dough, earning over $350,000 from MTV alone. And if we trust the calculations of some highly esteemed financial analysts, she’s pocketed an additional $200k from sponsored content deals. It’s safe to say that Leah’s bank account has seen more action than her love life!
But hold on to your hats, folks, because the MTV gravy train might be slowing down. The ratings for the Teen Mom franchise have been going downhill faster than a bobsled on ice. While Teen Mom: The Next Chapter might still make a comeback for another season, poor Leah’s other gigs, like Teen Mom Family Reunion and Teen Mom: Girls’ Night In, seem to have bitten the dust. It’s like MTV is giving her the ol’ “You’re fired!” treatment. Harsh, but hey, even reality TV has its limits.
With her income likely taking a nosedive, Leah is in for a financial wake-up call. Her salary this year will resemble a deflated balloon compared to the previous year. And if we’re being honest, it’s only a matter of time before MTV sends her packing for good. So, where did it all go wrong for our dear Leah? Well, she claims to have been too generous in her early days as a reality star. Bless her heart! She thought giving to everyone would bring good karma, but instead, it brought her a truckload of debt.
Leah spilled the beans during a riveting appearance on Kailyn Lowry’s “Coffee Convos” podcast. She confessed to giving her dad a cool $40,000 just to keep him around. Oh, Leah, is there a “World’s Best Daughter” mug in your future? But that’s not all! She also dished out bundles of cash to friends and family so they could have shiny new cars and cozy houses. It’s like Oprah’s “You get a car, you get a car!” but with way less talk show and way more financial strain.
Well, here’s hoping that all those lucky recipients of Leah’s generosity step up their game and return the favor. Because if she keeps digging this financial hole, she might need a ladder to see the light of day again. Let’s just say that Leah could use all the help she can get. So, who’s up for a fundraising event? Perhaps a charity auction of her Teen Mom memorabilia or a GoFundMe campaign titled “Save Leah’s Bank Account from Extinction.” The possibilities are endless, my friends.
That is a great photo of her standing in her power. That lecture she tried to give was one of the most fucking fabulous things I have ever seen.
