A third reviewer said: “They sure have that restaurant’s money! Why are they begging for money? Ugh!”

A fourth person wrote: “Leah, I think it’s so wrong and tacky to take money from your fans, who no doubt make a lot less money than you.

In October 2022, America’s Sun exclusively revealed that the Teen Mom star owed more than $450,000 in unpaid taxes.

According to court records, the reality star has outstanding debt to both the IRS and the state of West Virginia.

A Kanawha County clerk told The Sun, “There is a federal tax lien recorded on January 7, 2020 in the amount of $448,261.35.

The clerk added, “There’s no release for that,” which meant the debt remained unpaid.

The source also confirmed the state tax lien recorded on June 27, 2022, which was $9,238.04, is outstanding for Leah.

Pending tax hurdles may have gotten in the way when her ex-fiancé Jaylan Mobley bought her a $500,000 home shortly before they split.
