Leah Messer Defends Daughter’s Behavior on ‘Teen Mom 2’

This week on ‘Teen Mom 2’ we saw Leah Messer’s daughter Addie accidentally stick her gum to the microphone used for filming the show. In the scene Addie tells a crew member that she got her gum stuck on the mic and, at first, didn’t want to pull it off herself. Addie is known for her sassy attitude but some fans were not amused.

The crew member explained to her that she needed to remove the gum since it belongs to her and she eventually agreed after giggling to herself about the situation.

Some fans didn’t love the fact that Leah didn’t do much about the incident other than provide a bag for Addie to dispose her gum into. One fan tweeted, “Hold up! Was the producer parenting Addie about her gum while her mother was in the front seat on her phone?! Tell me I didn’t just see that!”

Leah responded to the backlash by tweeting, “Just to be clear: Addie did not intentionally put the gum on the mic. She had it on a wrapper and sat the mic down on it. For crying out loud, she was 6.”

What did you think of the scene? Was this a big deal or a funny moment? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!


  1. I think the kid is a brat and her mom needs to wake up. The behavior becomes much less amusing at 10, 14, 16 years old.

  2. Wow Addie is not a Brat! She is a 6 year old. Did more need to be done maybe. But come on kids see these comments. Yes Addie is cute and funny and I would hope as a mom and Grandma Leah knows when to discipline “her” child.

  3. I don’t believe in publicly shaming a child, why cyber bully Addie, she is young but there is a chance that she will see these comments

  4. I love Leah, but sometimes she lets her run all over her. That couldn’t of been me with my kids, 6 or not….
