Like so many of her Teen Mom OG co-stars, Amber Portwood supplements her TV income with a number of side hustles.
Amber has a clothing line; she makes paid appearances, and she’s even authored a memoir.
But apparently, all those side gigs aren’t paying the bills, because according to a new report from Radar Online, Amber has racked up some serious debt over the course of the past year.
Fans started to take an interest in Amber’s finances after Gary Shirley revealed on a recent episode of Teen Mom OG that Amber is way behind on her child support payments.
“She owes me $ 9,600,” Shirley told his wife Kristina Anderson.
“Amber is not there. She is a come and go kind of mom. I don’t think her head is in kid mode.”
During the episode, Amber claimed on Twitter that she’d made Gary rich, but it seems she’s having a bit of trouble fattening her own pockets.
According to Radar, Amber owes $ 134,919 in back taxes and seems to have no intention of repaying her debt.
She was first hit with a lien from the government back in February of 2016.
Thus far, it seems she’s made no effort to get out from under that sizable debt.
“There is a tax, but no release,” an official from the Clerk of Court for Madison County Court in Indiana tells Radar.
These days, Amber is pregnant with Andrew Glennon’s baby, and it seems her new baby daddy isn’t a whole lot better off financially.
Radar reports that Glennon was recently hit with a judgment from a collection agency for nearly $ 9,000.
The case was reportedly settled in August, but Glennon has yet to make a payment on the outstanding debt.
The sizable debts are surprising, as both Amber and Andrew have successful television careers (he’s a producer for WeTV’s Marriage Boot Camp), and Amber’s aforementioned side jobs have reportedly been profitable.
Teen Mom franchise salaries are typically in the mid-six figure range, so Amber must be doing some serious spending to land so deeply in the red.
We guess the situation will serve to bolster Farrah Abraham’s argument that Amber is the “worst mom.”
