In the midst of Amber Portwood's apparent suicide attempt earlier this week, it was Gary Shirley who called 911 and begged the operator for help.
"She's going to hang herself," he warned of the Teen Mom star, with whom he has a contentious relationship (and a two-year-old daughter, Leah).
In the 911 call, Gary said Amber Portwood had mentioned that she was "having a hard time with her life" and feared she might commit suicide.
Gary remained calm throughout, but it was an ugly situation just the same. Be advised of this if you listen to the Amber Portwood 911 call here:
"I just spoke with my girlfriend and she said ... she's having a hard time with her life ... call the police, they can find my body in the garage."
"I'm calling you guys because I don't want her to kill herself."
These excerpts are no laughing matter. The police came to the home and Amber was taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation.
It's unclear why Amber was in such a bad place that day, but there have been rumors - which Shirley denies - of Gary cheating on her.
