Amber Portwood From Teen Mom Not Dating Sex Offender After All, Just Regular Criminal

by at . Comments

Who are these girls, Jersey Shore stars? This has been quite the week for Teen Mom gossip, with one teenage mother in particular involved in tons of controversy.

Earlier this week, following a violent altercation on their MTV show, Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley, her on-off fiance, became subjects of a police investigation.

Today, it was reported erroneously by Us Weekly that Amber is dating convicted child sex offender by the name of Christopher Glen Hossman. This is incorrect.

Wherever Amber Portwood goes, controversy follows.

Christopher Glen Hossman is not the guy she's dating on the show. It's just a case of mistaken identity. Amber's BF "Chris" does have a criminal past, however.

On a recent episode of Teen Mom, she asked "Chris" what he did before they met. He revealed that he had, in fact, served time in jail, but never explained why.

"I got into trouble and I got caught, and they put me on work release," he told her. "It's like a jail where you get to go out and work and you have to go back."

Portwood wasn't one to judge. Her philosophy:

"I try to give everyone a second chance and look into their heart. I wouldn't have even given him a chance if he was still into drugs or anything like that."

"I wasn’t okay with his history in jail, but I can’t judge him just by that, because if that was the case, there's plenty in my past that I could be judged on."

Here's hoping she and non-sex offender Chris are happier than she and Gary Shirley. With him, the fact that she hasn't beaten him in weeks is progress.
