Leah Messer’s ex-fiance, Jaylan Mobley, and her ex-husband, Corey Simms, met up during the November 22 episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.
The scene was awkward for Teen Mom viewers since they know that Leah and Jaylan have since split and his conversation with Corey focused on proposing to Leah.
Jaylan proposed to Leah in August 2022 during an anniversary trip to Costa Rica. However, the duo went their separate ways just two months later.
Despite their split, Leah and Jaylan’s romance is playing out in Season 1 of The Next Chapter, as the events were filmed while they were still a couple.
Tuesday’s episode saw Jaylan meet with Leah’s ex and father to her twin daughters, Corey Simms. The gentlemen gathered at a driving range to talk about Jaylan’s relationship with Leah and his plans to pop the question.
The scene was uncomfortable to watch, given the current circumstances … and Leah was one of the first to admit it.

Many fans of the show felt similarly and took to the comments to share their thoughts on the scene.

“Looked soooo uncomfortable,” wrote one viewer, while another felt the clip “didn’t age well.”
“What an awkward, forced conversation!” penned another viewer who agreed that Corey looked uncomfortable during the scene.
Another Teen Mom fan echoed the sentiment, calling the scene “so forced,” adding that Corey likely didn’t enjoy filming the scene with Jaylan.
Since their split, Jaylan has reportedly moved out of the spacious home he and Leah shared with her daughters, Ali, Aleeah, and Addie.
Neither Jaylan nor Leah have elaborated on the reason for their split, but many Teen Mom fans speculated that infidelity was to blame.
For her part, Leah felt that curious Teen Moms didn’t need to be concerned with why she and Jaylan ended things.
Taking to Twitter after their breakup, Leah told her followers that she and Jaylan were “solid” and noted they were “Refocusing and transitioning into better days ahead of us.”
Teen Mom: The Next Chapter airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c on MTV.
