Gary Shirley: Victim or Amber Portwood Antagonist?

by at . Comments

Is rotund Teen Mom baby daddy Gary Shirley the target of Amber Portwood's insane rage, or does he play a big role in antagonizing her?

In a video obtained by TMZ, Shirley gets an earful from the accused felon, but the video raises serious questions about big daddy himself.

Shot in April, the clip shows Shirley on the phone with Amber Portwood, who goes off on him as usual. Strangely, he seems to revel in it.

Should we be pointing fingers at Gary as well?

Portwood pleaded not guilty to assault this week, but Gary may not be a sympathetic figure. He sure had fun with this particular, button-pushing diatribe.

While she was reportedly encouraged to fight Gary by MTV, cops say Amber claims it was not done for Teen Mom viewers' sake but was authentic anger.

Is Gary was really a "victim" of violence in all of this? Was he playing it up for the cameras, or just riling up his baby mama? This clip doesn't help his cause:

I don't care what anyone says Gary is awhole lot better to take care of Leah..you can tell he loves her.I suppose Amber does also but wgar she has been doing to gary in front of Leah is NOT right.Doesn't Amber realize what she does and says to Gary can affect her when she gets older?The reason he can't work when he was is cause Amber always wanted him to babysit so she could go running around.To me Amber is the fat,lazy bitch and not a very good mother...I hope she looses Leah for a very long time ...like when and if she goes to jail.

OMG, he's big, get over it. Remember she used to be quite chunky herself, and now that she went all anorexic she all of a sudden thinks it's okay make fun of him for it. But she is the same exact person she used to be, way too emotional, angry, and she doesn't seem like the smartest person in the world either. I'm not standing up for him either, he deserves to be a parent just as much as she does, which is not at all. They both have A LOT of growing up to do, and that poor little girl gets to be in the middle of it.

GARY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE. IT STARTED THIS BS WITH AMBER. AMBER IS INNOCENT. GARY SHOULD NOT BE THE FATHER. LEAH SHOULD PICK WHICH PARENT SHE WANTS TO SPEND HER LIFE WITH BECAUSE ITS NOT FAIR TO LEAH. GARY WAS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING STUPID TO AMBER AND GARY PUSHED AMBER'S LIMIT. MOTHER'S OF THE CHILD IS ALWAYS THE BOSS AND CONTROL. FATHER'S HAVE LESS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM BUT AMBER IS WAY WAY WAY WAY RESPONSIBLE THAN GARY.

neither one of them is perfect. Yeah, he was laughing at his friend while talking to her, but he wasn't saying anything to her that should have made her upset. What guy wouldn't, especially if the friend is filming him and probably laughing too. Amber has a lot of problems, anger issues, and needs help, and the two of them only need to get along for their daughters sake, otherwise their daughter is the one that will suffer. They sure as heck do not belong together, it seems to be a very unhealthy relationship.

Gary IS an idiot, he is an immature boy who doesn't know the meaning of LOVE, I watched the teen mom series enough to know he should not be a father to that precious child, he DOES antagonize Amber and she is right, he is a fat ass, he is a lazy KID!

In a way, it seems more like the camera man is having more fun w/the drama going on over the phone...its hard to really tell if he was just hamming it up for the camera's or if Amber is just an overly emotional, quick to take everything as aimed at her, individual.

No I do not think Gary antagonized her. She is a loose cannon. Everybody knows when a girl is threw with a guy she treats him like shit. She needs help, serious help. She probably treats everyone in her life like that because she feels the world owes her something.

Gary isn't the victim he knows what buttons to push on amber. I'm not saying what amber did was okay because its not but gary is a sorry ass fat fuck who has issues of his own

Gary probably is a total idiot, but Amber can't just beat the crap out all her problems...
