LEAH Messer looks like a model in a recent photo – after slamming a fan who claimed she wore “too much makeup.”
Posing on a porch in West Virginia, the 28-year-old Teen Mom star posted a sultry snap to Instagram on Thursday.
“Embody the true essence of your soul,” Leah wrote, followed by a slew of hashtags including #GirlMom and #ConsciousLiving.
In the photo, Leah can be seen wearing a beige long-sleeved top with jeans and statement snakeskin boots as she pouted at the camera.
Her confident post prompted negative comments about her makeup as one fan demanded if “you really need all that? #BeReal #BeNatural.”
However, Leah was quick to point out that she “enjoys” dressing up and urged the user to unfollow her.
“I personally enjoy dressing up and providing good quality content for my followers,” she replied.
“You can unfollow me if you’d like because the opinion of you or anyone else is irrelevant to my growth love!”
This week, Leah has also posted a video of her choosing a pumpkin in the latest fall fashion and trying out aerial yoga after revealing her brand new look and confidence.
But things haven’t always been so rosy for the MTV alum.
Leah found fame as a teenager on Teen Mom when she welcomed twins Aleeah and Aliannah with then-husband Corey Simms.
She later welcomed daughter Addie with Jeremy Calvert – but a heroin addiction nearly ruined her life and career.
Earlier this month, she admitted to doing heroin purchased off the street while partaking in “very illegal activities” to get drugs before she sobered up.
Leah also revealed she was taking a “ridiculous amount” of pills during the “downhill spiral” of her past battle with addiction.
In her May 2020 memoir, Hope, Grace & Faith, Leah claimed that she suffered a “botched” spinal tap in 2013 when she had a C-section with daughter Addie.
The MTV personality penned in the book that the hospital prescribed her with painkillers Hydrocodone, Oxycodone and Tylenol 3.
Leah explained how she struggled with depression and anxiety all her life, but that the opioids sent her “over the edge” which was the beginning of her substance abuse.
On Saturday, she admitted she later began “turning to the streets” to buy drugs and that’s when she realized she had “lost” herself.
The reality star told the Knockin’ Doorz Down podcast today that this was when she started to think “suicidal thoughts.”
She shares Ali and Aleeah, 10, with ex-husband Corey Simms, and Addie, 7, with ex-spouse Jeremy Calvert.
Leah was often filmed slurring her words and nodding off mid-sentence on Teen Mom.
