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.


Was anyone else creeped out that amber allows some stranger change her baby??


I dont think either one of them are capable of raising that poor little girl. She is obviously on something or how would she have dropped all that weight so quickly. He has no balls. He thinks more about being with her than worrying about his child. He needs to man up. She needs to take a drug test and no a new med eval. I agree with whomever said Gary's mom should take the baby. This is a distaster waiting to happen.


Amber, do the world a favor and off yourself.


I think that it is great that gary finally manned up and started threatening her with cps. She has no idea what it is to be a parent, yet that is her only argument. I read that the guy she was dating is a registered sex offender! He wouldn't live to see day 2 if he were around my child, yet amber let's this happen. She needs to go to jail for 1 hitting gary and 2 letting some pervert change her daughters diapers! Gary should take some initiative and smoke that fool for being around his daughter!!!!


Oh and as for doublestandard who posted on the 10th, Amber was 18 when she had that damn baby so get the facts straight before you start accusing people of that kind of shit. She was old enough to know better.


Amber is a POOR excuse for a person. Not only is she a horrible mother, she's a horrible girlfriend/fiancee. She says her new boyfriend calms her down in the season finale but the only reason he keeps her calm is because he does all the house work and takes care of lea while she sits on her lazy ass and sleeps til noon. Gary called her out on her shit and thats why it didn't work out. She calls herself a mother but she's no where close. It would be in Lea's best interest if Gary just got full custody of her. Amber is the biggest piece of shit I have ever seen in my life. I never post things like this but I just had to vent. I'm going to school to be a social worker because I want to make sure children don't have to live with a parent like Amber. She is absolutely disgusting.


Amber you are not a good mother by any means you can sit there and lie on t.v as if its not shown to the world when your baby crys and you get tired of it you dont put them in there crib to scream you dont cuss infront of them and you dont put your hads on the father neither .. i know you call him a fatass. .. but YOUR LUCKY his fatass stays with you ..you are a horrible person..nobody can do the things you do and get away with it. Either Gary needs to get that baby or the state needs to take it .. you give women a bad name and your a sorry excuse for a mother ... you would have been better giving that baby girl up for adoption she didnt asked to be put here neither to be put in a house with you..you either need to get it together to go away .. that baby crys for her dad everytime he leaves bc she knows when shes with "mommy" its sitting in her crib (with no sheets) crying while you lay on the bed taking your xanax GET A GRIP GIRLL .. s.p.o.s


Hey lets face it if it were to be you and I caught doing this we would have lost our kid.... But for some reason?? hmmm doesn't look like anythings going to happen even if millions have watched this. What message is this sending


I have never posted about a TV show, but I could not believe what I saw the other night. If Gary was the one using violence, would they have shown it or called the police. Amber is not fit to raise this child! The look on Leah's face broke my heart. Why is nothing being done???


Amber is a poor excuse for a mother who leaves their dirty plates with forks and KNIVES at her babies reach. she is selfish and disrespectful to Gary in front of leah. If she wasnts to fight with him atleast do it when she is not in the room and when you see your child doing somthing that is not safe like playing with glass or climbing up on the furnchure then get up and take it away from her and put sheet on your child bed if you can go buy sheets for your self then you can for your child. And it is not very good to have leah se sall that fighthing and swearing and kicking her father out of the house all the time in front of her it is not good for her to grow up with that. Amber seems like a real unfit mother she is my least favoirt on Teen mom. I also do not think that gary is the best father eather first off he should stand up for him self an get up and get a job and take care of leah she is number one in their life or she should be.
