Amber Portwood: $100,000 in Debt! Behind on Child Support!

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.”

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley: I Made You Rich, Loser!

If you watched this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, then you know that Amber Portwood didn’t exactly come off looking great.

But amazingly, her tweets during the show proved even more damaging to her reputation!

The episode sees Amber’s baby daddy, Gary Shirley, and his wife, Kristina, voicing some of the same criticisms that fans have been directing at Amber in recent months.

Like so many of the show’s viewers, Gary and Kristina apparently feel that Amber should’ve spent more time looking into Andrew Glennon’s sketchy past before she started dating him seriously and got pregnant with his baby.

Not only that, they take issue with Amber not seeing her daughter for months and using her depression as a justification–despite the fact that she was apparently mentally healthy enough to begin dating Glennon.

Maybe Amber was depressed, and maybe too much is being made of Glennon’s past, but it’s not hard to see why a father and stepmother might be concerned by the situation.

And Gary voiced those concerns at length in the episode:

“I don’t know what skeletons he has in his closet, but honestly, she should have waited,” he said to Kristina.

“She should have taken more time with Leah and focused on her responsibility as being a mother than jumping into a relationship. Well, she was, like, ‘I was mourning.’ I know that you’re sad after breaking up with someone — I get it.”

“But your daughter can bring you just as much happiness,” Kristina interjected.

Not surprisingly, Gary agreed:

“From day one I’ve been a parent! From day one my issues never came in and stopped me from being a dad, you know?” he continued.

“I don’t have the option to not be a parent, but you can go off and do what you want to do. I mean, that would be f–king awesome! You know? And you’re OK with it because you’re used to it. But you know, there’s one person that’s not OK with it, and that’s Leah.”

From there, Kristina spiked the football by recounting a recent exchange with Leah:

“It’s just like she told me, you know? ‘Matt was in the picture. Mommy broke up with Matt. Mommy don’t come around then because she’s too depressed,'” she recalled.

“But then, all of a sudden, she brings over Andrew and she says: ‘Well Kristina, if she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?’ And, you know, what do I say to that?”

Gary then recalled a period of time in which Leah was so depressed by her mother’s absence that she did nothing but sleep.

“Let’s adopt Leah,” Kristina proposed.

“I’m with you,” Gary replied.

Not surprisingly, Amber had much to say about the situation on social media:

“Make sure to watch Gary and Kristina tonight talking sh!t about me! It must be hard making money off of me! Being such a bad mom and all. Where would they be?” she tweeted.

“ a 1 bedroom shack in the ghetto of Anderson where he was before I got out and the show came back on!! Ignorant!”

And if you thought she’d stop there, you don’t know Amber:

“[Kristina] broke up her family for money and tv!” Amber tweeted, targeting Gary’s wife.

“Her husband got a restraining order on her cheating @ss with multiple people and then cheated with Gary! What about her daughter? Straight out of Gary’s mouth!!”

“Restraining order to keep my child from filming,” Kristina replied.

“I am an active mother to my children so quit hating. I’ve never stepped on your toes as a mother nor will I ever. I care for Leah when she is in our care. Love don’t hate.”

Then things got even more bizarre when Farrah Abraham’s father, Michael, interjected:

“Kristina stay strong. DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY you. You’re the real proven mother figure here,” Michael tweeted.

“Gary has always been the rock solid father protecting his children with you in full support and I’m thankful to God for both of you – the world knows the truth and that’s pure FACT.”

We’d say this situation can’t get any weirder, but Michael Abraham just got involved, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, watch Teen Mom OG online to get caught up on all of this season’s intense drama.


Farrah Abraham SLAMS Amber Portwood: You’re the Worst Mom!

Farrah Abraham won't be winning any mother of the year awards anytime soon, and yet when it comes time to fire a shot at one of her Teen Mom OG rivals, insulting their parenting is always her favorite tactic.

For the past year, the Farrah vs. Amber Portwood feud has been raging like a wild fire, and it doesn't look like we'll be seeing a truce at any point in the near future.

This means, of course, that Farrah has been attacking Amber's parenting at every opportunity.

And this week, she launched one of her most brutal tirades yet…


1. Happier Times

Believe it or not, there was a time when Farrah and Amber got along. Obviously, those days are long gone…

2. The Fight

3. Shots Fired!

4. Amber Fires Back

Amber Portwood SLAMS Gary Shirley and MTV in Epic Rant!

Amber Portwood is going through a lot right now.

A whole, whole lot.

She's pregnant, and those hormones are never easy on anyone, but on top of that situation, she's also unable to take her usual medications for her mental illnesses.

Throw in the fact that she's on a reality show, and also the fact that she was still dealing with her breakup with Matt Baier when she met, began dating, and got impregnated by Andrew Glennon …

It's a lot, OK?

So it makes sense that all those different emotions would bubble up and explode sometime … and that time was yesterday.

The place of the explosion? Twitter.

The results? Well, you'll just have to see.

1. Bad Times

Amber portwood in good light
On this season of Teen Mom OG, we’re learning what a toll Amber’s breakup with Matt really took on her. It has not been pretty.

2. Oh, Amber …

Matt baier and amber pic
Amber has said that after the breakup, she fell into a deep depression, and that things were so bad that she was only able to see her daughter, Leah, twice during her entire summer vacation.

3. Um

She managed to find plenty of time to get into a relationship with Andrew and to become pregnant, but sure, the depression kept her away from Leah. All right.

4. More Drama

On the most recent episode of the show, Gary Shirley and his wife, Kristina, discussed the situation. It wasn’t a disrespectful conversation — they just talked about Andrew’s sketchy past, and Kristina revealed that they’d told Leah that her mother hadn’t been around because of her depression.

5. Real Talk with Leah

But at one point in the episode, Leah asked Kristina “If she was too depressed to see me, she wasn’t too depressed to find a new man?” From the mouths of babes, right?

6. Rewind

OK, so all of that, plus Amber’s pregnancy reveal, happened on the episode. But you know how the cast members get to preview the episodes just before they air? It seems like Amber got to see everything just a few hours before we did — and she was not pleased with what she saw.

Amber Portwood: See Her Pregnancy Test Freakout on Teen Mom OG!

As you surely know by now, Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child.

It is not necessarily good news.

We'd love to be happy and excited and to think good thoughts for Amber with all this, but it's just so hard, for many reasons.

Like, just so many reasons.

One, she barely sees the one kid she already has. On the current season of Teen Mom OG, we've learned that she didn't see Leah once during her summer vacation.

We also learned that she's behind on her child support payments, even though she admitted she did have the money.

Two, she's just coming out of a really, really bad relationship, and she should have probably taken some time to heal from the grossness that was Matt Baier.

Three, she's only known this baby's father, Andrew Glennon, for a few months.

Usually when you start dating someone new, you want to take that time in the beginning to get to know them and to see if you're compatible with each other. Welcoming a life into the world makes that a little more complicated.

The whole thing is honestly just so messy and weird.

And as we can see in this clip from tonight's new episode of Teen Mom OG, it's been that way since the moment they found out she was pregnant.

The clip begins with Amber and Andrew in bed on their Hawaiian vacation, and she tells him that she's been feeling tired.

"Is this how you felt when you were pregnant with Leah?" he asks as the camera zooms in on a box of pregnancy tests.

"Totally," she confirms.

They read the instructions on the box, and then they hold hands for a minute and refuse to meet each other's eyes until she gets up to go pee on that stick.

From the bathroom, we hear Amber go "Um … babe."

He asks her what's happening, and she lets out a bunch of cusses as she brings him the test, so he can see the results for himself.

Neither of them look excited at what we know now is a positive result.

So, OK, let's look at the math real quick, all right?

Amber and Matt wrapped up filming on Marriage Boot Camp at the very end of June — that's where she met Andrew.

He creeped on her after the show was over, and around August 11th, we saw the first photos of them cuddled up together.

On September 23rd, she posted the first photos of their trip to Hawaii.

Considering all that, it's likely that she got pregnant pretty much as soon as she began dating Andrew — either that, or Matt's going to have another addition to his big, sad family tree.

Watch the strange beginning to this tragic saga in the video below:

Amber Portwood: Does This New Evidence Prove She’s Back on Drugs?!

If you’ve been a fan of Teen Mom OG for a while — or even if you just loosely follow reality TV gossip — you’re probably very familiar with Amber Portwood’s history with addiction.

But if you’ve somehow missed that tragic saga, know this: it was bad.

Real bad.

Going all the way back to her episode of 16 and Pregnant, things weren’t looking great for her. Even then, she didn’t exactly get along with her baby daddy, Gary Shirley.

She also admitted then that she never wanted to be a mother, so, you know … that wasn’t the best revelation.

Then, when Teen Mom began, we saw Amber struggle so hard in pretty much every aspect of her life. She couldn’t seem to get through a day without a breakdown.

We also saw her beat Gary more than once, and then there were all the very questionable parenting choices she made, like the time she let some guy she’d met at Walmart who had just gotten out of prison change baby Leah’s diaper.

As the seasons went on, her situation kept getting worse and worse, until finally she went to rehab.

Then, she said that she was going “for anger control issues and depression,” but later she revealed that pretty much every time she was on TV, she was high.

Eventually she went to prison, even opting to stay there after being given the chance to go to rehab.

She’s been out a few years now, and even though she’s definitely made some bad choices along the way — for example, Matt Baier — it really seems like she’s managed to stay clean.

 … Or has she?!

Over on Reddit, Teen Mom fans are speculating over Amber’s appearance in a recent episode. To be more specific, they’re speculating on the size of her pupils.

Amber Portwood's Pupils

One user shared this screenshot of Amber alongside a screenshot of her cousin, and honestly, her pupils are pretty huge here.

If you’re new to the world, pupil size can be an indicator that someone is partaking in a wide variety of drugs — enlarged pupils like hers here are common with some substances, tiny pupils are common with others.

Considering Amber’s history, it’s easy to see an image like this and jump to the worst conclusion.

But if you just consider everything else, you may be able to come to a different conclusion.

As many Reddit users pointed out, Amber was on a few medications at this point to treat her mental health issues. Those kinds of medications will often cause changes in pupil size.

On top of that, she’s got those beautiful pale blue eyes, so with the contrast in color between her iris and her pupil, any change in size is going to be extra noticeable.

And on top of that, the kinds of drugs she liked back in the day are the kinds that make your pupils smaller, not larger like this.

There are many things that could affect her pupils, and obviously her psych meds are the most likely culprit.

Look, Amber has made plenty of mistakes over the years, and she continues to mess up time and time again. But ever since getting out of prison, it really does seem like she’s been able to stay clean.

Can’t we just let her have that?


Amber Portwood: Andrew Glennon FINALLY Moved In With Me!

When it was first revealed that Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon were dating, many Teen Mom: OG fans hoped that the relationship would prove to be a short-lived rebound fling.

Clearly, that hasn’t proven to be the case.

Though their relationship began under inauspicious circumstances (Glennon is a producer on Marriage Boot Camp. He met Portwood when she appeared on the show with her ex-fiance, Matt Baier.) it seems to have flourished in recent months.

Currently, Portwood is pregnant with Glennon’s baby.

It’s the first child for Amber and the second for Andrew.

Fans were initially perplexed about how the relationship would proceed from here, as Amber resides in Indiana, and Glennon has built a successful career in Los Angeles.

But it seems Andrew has chosen true love (and, of course, a career in front of the camera) by re-locating to Indiana in order to be closer to Amber and his future son.

According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Amber revealed the news in response to some trash talk from an Instagram follower:

“Did he really go for a visit and never went back home just like Matt?” the fan commented on a photo of Amber and Andrew hanging out at her home.

“No? He had a whole life and career in LA,” Amber replied.

“He couldn’t just up and leave his family. It was a big decision on his part to move to Indiana and it’s been a great decision.”

Yes, Ms. Portwood made the big reveal in rather non-chalant fashion, which seems to be her M.O. lately.

Just last week, Amber revealed her baby’s name during a casual Twitter conversation with her brother.

Speaking of Shawn Portwood (or “Bubby,” as he’s known to TM:OG fans), Amber and Andrew recently made a trip to Florida so that her beloved brother could meet her baby daddy for the first time.

It’s a move that has many wondering if Glennon is gearing up to pop the question.

As viewers know, Amber is extremely (some would say creepily) close with her brother, and she’s stated in the past that she would never marry a man without getting Shawn’s approval first.

Obviously, it would be a very fast proposal, as Amber and Andrew have only known each other a few months, but then again, they’re already living together with a kid on the way.

At this point, marriage wouldn’t even be their biggest commitment to one another.

So don’t be surprised to hear an engagement announcement in the very near future.

Amber Portwood Reveals Baby Name on Twitter!

Back in November, we learned that Amber Portwood is pregnant with her second child.

Amber revealed that she’s expecting a boy, but other than that, she’s been mostly tight-lipped about the pregnancy.

Given some of the negative reactions to Amber’s recent social media posts, we suppose we can’t blame her.

After all, it was just earlier this week that Amber was slammed for posting an “inappropriate” photo of her daughter.

There was nothing provocative about the pic, but the girl was apparently positioned too close to Amber’s boyfriend for some fans’ liking.

It’s a jungle out there, and Portwood’s plight isn’t made any easier by the fact that her new dude, Andrew Glennon, has a seriously sketchy past.

The point is, we can see why Amber isn’t big on sharing the details of her personal life these days.

Unfortunately for her, the life of a reality star doesn’t allow for much in the way of privacy.

Amber’s every social media interaction is scrutinized by millions of fans, and it looks as though Teen Mom: OG obsessives have unearthed some information that Amber may have preferred to keep private.

The intel comes courtesy of a Twitter conversation between Amber and her brother Shawn.

Shawn posted an obscured photo of Amber’s homemade Christmas present without revealing what it was.

Along with the image, he posted this message:

“I finally completed your gift. However, I’m not going to show it to you so you’ll see it tomorrow. I will send you this though.”

“Awe Bubby I can’t wait!! I’m sure little James will love it!” Portwood replied.

Yes, it seems Amber and Andrew will be naming their baby James.

The moniker was reportedly selected due to the fact that it’s also Glennon’s middle name.

Amber has yet to delete the tweet, but we can’t imagine she intended to make the reveal in such a low-key fashion.

Whatever the case, the name is out there now, and fans have been vocal in their praise for Amber’s classic selection.

Watch Teen Mom: OG online to relive the many, many times that Ms. Portwood did not make the right decision.
