Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is a mess.
That much we can say conclusively. The rest of this article? Mostly conjecture thrown out there by a couple of celebrity gossip tabloids. She does make it easy for them.
The Indiana native barely even remembers hitting Gary Shirley, occasional fiance and father of her daughter, Leah. But the consequences haunt her just the same.
TEEN MOM-STER: Amber Portwood pulls double tabloid duty.
Law enforcement began an investigation after September 28's Teen Mom.
A local official said after the incident, “We have an ongoing assessment with regard to the family of Amber Portwood, and we continue to work on this matter.”
Amber, who says she hasn't hit Gary in weeks (baby steps, people, baby steps), “is freaking out over the possibility she could lose her baby,” says an insider.
We doubt she will. The police have an obligation to look into it, but the two just renewed their commitment with promise rings. That's as strong as it gets.
