Teen Mom's Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley: Under Investigation, in Therapy

by at . Comments

Like her Teen Mom co-stars Maci Bookout and Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood has not had an easy time of it after giving birth at the tender age of 18.

Amber's in a totally different league, however.

Police are investigating Portwood after she was seen hitting ex-fiance Gary Shirley on last week's episode of the MTV show that glorifies teen pregnancy.

Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood in happier, less violent times.

The Anderson Police Department in Indiana have now launched an investigation into the incident, in which Amber looked to be kicking her man as well.

"We were made aware of the domestic abuse following the episode that aired on MTV," Anderson Public Information Officer Mitch Carroll told reporters.

"Based on that there was a case drafted. The Department of Child Protective Services in Indiana notified us that they are aware of the incident as well."

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley are now seeking counseling.

Her father Shawn confirmed that she is doing everything she can to salvage her relationship with her on-off fiance and the father of her small child.

Shawn revealed that Amber and Gary have been in counseling for months, and he hopes that they get married, despite the aforementioned battle.

"It's my understanding they're doing just fine," Shawn said. "They're now going to couples counseling. It was their idea as a whole, them together."

Hopefully they work it out for the good of everyone involved.

??? obviously none of you have ever been a teen mom, or even married. gary is sitting there laying on his fat ass while amber works. deciding that hes going to be a stay at home dad while she works, aand then comes in and asks her if she can clean up??? are you joking?? that house is a mess what are his fat little sausage hands broken? then he says well i may have found something better how about a free pass to go investigate? you think amber whooped him? if that had been my husband that fool would have had to have his face stapled back together. not saying that its right to hurt people just because they are stupid. but there is a point especially in her situation where you just break.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCK POOR TALK, AMBER HAS ISSUES SO DOES GARY,
I THINK THEY BOTH CAN BE GOOD PARENTS WITH THE RIGHT DIRECTION.,
LETTING A STRANGE GUY CHANGE LEAH,IS PART OF HER IMMATURITY,NOT LAZINESS,AND FOR THE PERSON WHO CALLED THEM RETARDED THAT IS A TERM SOR MENTALLY IMPAIRED AND IS NOW NOT SUITABLE TO USED.

I agree the show DOES NOT glorify teen pregnancy. But it does show what an @$$ Amber is! She is a disgusting excuse for a mom and human being.

Amber is a terrible mother, but I'd like to see her SERIOUSLY straighten up than her baby go into foster care.
Above all, I would LOVE to see Gary take full custody of his child. He should step up, because that poor little baby needs him.

another thing, doesnt the MTV creeps do any type of background check on these people that obviously get paid to be on this show? Even for a job at the local grocery store, you have to fill out an app and list any type of criminal history, so whats going on with mtv now, filming a sex offender changing a little baby girl, filming criminal assaults and not reporting it, etc. Mtv should be fined and shut down. And as for the new 16 and pregnant show, omg, are you serious, this is just encouraging more girls to want to become pregnant to get on this disturbing show now, and why nine of them?!?!? horrible and unethical of mtv, all there shows are such a downgrade for society, jersey shore, teen mom, all the disrespectful parental control shows, and all the openly gay and straight sex scenes is just outright disturbing and wrong, Mtv used to mean "music television" bunch of crap now, unethical...

yeah i hope leah will be removed from that unstable abusive bitch asap! That she let this guy she barely knew, change her baby and now i am thinking he must of been living there with them, yikes, poor little leah with all this other neglect and abuse she has to witness every minute of her life now she was probably molested by this creep while that amber beast was sleeping as always. From the moment she brought that creep on the show, i thought he was her drug dealer or yeah a molester, ewww, especially after he said that it was "perfect" she has a baby. God why couldnt cps or gary have taken leah away from that whole situation before that happened to her. So sad for leah......thought it would be best for gary to keep her and not have to involve CPS, but he obviously will just keep bringing that sweet little baby back into that horrible situation over and over again.

The bigger question is......MTV and their film crew saw all of the abuse before we did....doesn't that somehow make them responsible to report the abuse and neglect immediatly? I'm not sure it should have gotten anymore airtime than the first show that it became apparent abuse and neglect was going on. This issue should have probably been addressed long before now!

Amber, your mean to Gary and you do not deserve him- he is too good for your imature spoiled ugliness. I hope he takes that kis off you and you have to get a job and then you get a man that treats you like you treated Gary- What goes around comes around.
