Despite being wildly successful as reality TV stars, some of the moms from Teen Mom didn’t get the memo about managing their finances after being cut huge checks. In April 2020, People reported that Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra owed more than $800,000 in taxes that they hadn’t yet paid at that point.
And according to The Sun, in November 2020, Leah Messer owed more than $31,000 in state taxes on top of more than $123,000 in federal taxes. The moms have been on TV a lot longer than the ones in Young and Pregnant, though, so there’s little chance of the same issues befalling any of this new batch of young parents. More money, more problems, right?
Watch Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
