Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been ordered by a judge to pay money to compensate the real estate company that was suing to evict her. Why?
For lying about her income and qualifying, illegally, for government subsidized housing as a result of that lie. Some people will do anything for a buck.
While Portwood was in jail this winter, a rental company sued her for eviction after they saw she lied about her "low-income" status on her application.
Amber's income in 2010? A modest $280,000.
Amber and baby daddy Gary Shirley in happier times.
This disqualifies her from subsidized government housing, clearly, and an Indiana judge ruled in the rental company's favor in the case earlier this month.
Amber Portwood not bothering to respond to the suit probably didn't help her cause. She must pay the company back or face further legal consequences.
Otherwise it's back to the slammer, most likely, given that she's been on thin ice with probation as it is. At least jail is free, however. Food for thought.
