Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was rushed to the hospital in Indiana today, and reports from TMZ state that she threatened to take her own life.

Cops in Anderson, Ind., say someone called police from Amber's home claiming the 21-year-old "was depressed and threatening to end her life."

Amber Portwood did not appear to be injured when the cops arrived and she was promptly taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation.

Troubled Amber Portwood

Amber is still in the hospital. Keep her in your thoughts.

It's unclear why Portwood was in shambles, but she and baby daddy Gary Shirley had actually been on relatively good terms in the last couple of months.

It's also unclear if this will affect season three of Teen Mom, which is set to begin next month and reunites Portwood with the rest of the original cast.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

UPDATE: A police statement confirms that at 11:34 a.m. Anderson Police were called to a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive.

According to the caller, Amber was threatening to end her life. She did not appear injured, and was transported to a medical facility for evaluation.

The drama never stops for Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley.

The troubled tandem, who will be returning on Season 3 of Teen Mom next month, saw their feud rekindled recently thanks to an unknown person.

Dammit Jenelle

An unknown person who spray-painted Amber's car with obscene language. That sucks, but why would it lead to a dispute with baby daddy Gary?

Well, this incident, along with death threats Amber received, prompted a judge to give physical custody of baby Leah to Gary, for her protection.

That ruling came with a provision that barred them from being in the same room with Leah together, so they can’t fight in front of the baby.

Yes, their relationship is that volatile.

Prior to this, the pair had been growing closer again, spending time with one another and exchanging suggestive Tweets. Then Gary Shirley got arrested, Amber's car got vandalized, a judge split them up and he blames her, etc.

What will happen next? All we can do is stay tuned. And call the cops.

After showcasing a new crew in season two, MTV is reuniting the original cast of Teen Mom for the third season of the reality show, premiering July 5.

Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood (if she stays out of jail) will all return next month for "their toughest year yet."

Battle For the Twins!

Custody battles, 911 calls, fist fights, shouting matches and, of course, the joy and pain of raising kids they didn't plan for - that's life for these four.

Sure as Amber and Gary Shirley will break up twice between now and then, THG will be reporting on the absurdity and life lessons as they unfold.

Gary Shirley and Amber Portwood used to be engaged. No longer.

The big daddy has engaged his baby mama in a series of flirty, sexy text messages, however, prompting speculation that it might not be over yet!

Gary kicked off the online flirting with a Tweet last week at Amber, writing, "I love you so much. I miss u too. See you tomorrow beautiful girl.”

He followed that with “I support you any day.” Later, a private response spurred Gary to Tweet, “your text is cracking me up your [sic] too cute.”

Amber Portwood appears just as much into it, Tweeting, “Awe babe love you too and I had a blast at Peppers it was great being w friends.”

Then Monday, Gary continued the lovefest: “miss u baby wish u were here with me I’d hold u all night. Ps I’m kissing u thru this tweet. Muaw.”

We think that's a kiss. Which is kind of gross. Get a room you two!

Just two days after losing primary custody of her daughter, Leah, to baby daddy and occasional fiance Gary Shirley, Teen Mom wreck Amber Portwood partied it up with Shirley at a bar to celebrate her 21st birthday.

Pretty standard for the Anderson, Ind., couple.

Congratulations to Amber on reaching the big 2-1, and more importantly, for marking the milestone last Saturday but not getting arrested! Baby steps!

Amber, Gary and Leah make one big, happy family. Emphasis on .. forget it.

We actually haven't heard much from Amber Portwood in recent weeks, which likely means she's staying out of trouble and getting her $h!t together.

Well, maybe not, but let's take a glass-half-full attitude in honor of her birthday, shall we? She could certainly use all the help she can get ...

The stars of MTV's Teen Mom are basically a case study in why people should think before becoming parents. It's not all it's cracked up to be, is it?

At the very least, there are pitfalls as well as joys. Most of the ladies know this all too well, with family feuds and even arrest records to prove it.

But through it all, they do their best. Well, mostly. Jenelle is a mess.

So, THG ponders, which Teen Mom star is actually the BEST mom, fighting through adversity and shining bright? Let's break down the candidates:

Teen Montage

Amber Portwood: Leah's mom must stand trial for felony neglect of a dependent and domestic battery. She was also in a recent nude photo scandal.

Catelynn Lowell: She gave up her baby for adoption, but she and her boyfriend / stepbrother still have a relationship with the child and its parents.

Chelsea Houska: Chelsea's devoted dad provides for his Aubree's every need. Chelsea herself? Mmmyeah not so much. Three letters, girl. GED.

Farrah Abraham: Despite adversity - losing Sophia's father in a car crash, feuds with his family and her own mom - Farrah goes hard. Respect.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood's car and home were vandalized last week.

The words "slut," "hoe," and "fu***r" were spray painted on the Ford Taurus owned by the troubled star, whose Anderson, Ind., home was also egged.

Jenelle Evans and Jace

All those yolks can be hosed off pretty easily, but the yellow paint on her car? That's pretty rough. You can see some vandalism photos over at Us Weekly.

Gary Shirley was not responsible for the vandalism. Most likely.

Portwood called the police to report the damage. The motive, she says? She's accused by her neighbor, Jamie Monroe, of stealing her baby daddy, Midas Fields.

Yes, that's the dude's real name.

Fields is a maintenance worker who has been living with Jamie for the three years, and they share a one-year-old daughter, Jaicee. So is he shagging Amber?

Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Catelynn Lowell are setting the record straight when it comes to safe sex. Hey, they would know what NOT to do.

The two girls' infamously unplanned pregnancies and baby daddy drama have been documented on the MTV hit show and in celebrity gossip tabloids.

Portwood gave birth to their daughter Leah Leann (whose father is Gary Shirley) in November 2008 and has struggled to remain sane and out of jail.

Lowell and boyfriend Tyler Baltierra welcomed daughter Carolyn "Carly" Elizabeth in 2009, giving her up for adoption in a painfully difficult choice.

In a new MTV special, Top 10 Most Outrageous Sex Myths, they break down what they've learned and some myths that just aren't true, such as ...

From one Teen Mom loose cannon to another ... some harsh words!

If anyone would be sympathetic to the new season's train wreck Jenelle Evans, you'd think it would be Amber Portwood, who's had her share of "issues."

Not the case. Instead of reaching out to Jenelle, Amber says she "despises" Evans' wild ways, calling her an "idiot" whose situation is nothing like her own.

"I pretty much despise what she stands for," Amber Portwood says.

Jenelle Evans (left) shouldn't expect any support from Amber Portwood.

"She's an idiot and I don't care if people know or not," she adds. "I literally have worked my ass off because of this whole battery thing to make sure I keep my daughter. They [MTV] shouldn't put her on, it's embarrassing!"

Tell us how you really feel, Ambs.

In all seriousness, Jenelle is unfit to be a mom, a fact that she admits. That fact and her perceived apathy are likely what irks the "passionate" Amber.

Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood says she is devastated over the nude photo scandal she's involved in and never intended for the pic to get out.

Mmm hmm.

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley Photo

A good way to prevent such a thing? DON'T LET PEOPLE PHOTOGRAPH YOU NAKED. Especially when you're kind of a celebrity. Crazy advice, right?

The photo of Amber Portwood nude is unquestionably her - the tattoo of Leah/the kid from Two and a Half Men is unmistakable - and leaked today.

Amber Portwood says she's doing her best to stay positive.

"I'm devastated that these photos were stolen from my phone and sold by someone I trusted," Portwood told MTV. "It makes me sad that anyone would do this, and I'm horrified that something so private is being shared publicly."

"It's been a difficult year, and I just want to focus on what's important in my life - my daughter," said Amber, who faces felony battery charges.

The racy shots, reportedly taken a few weeks ago, feature Gary Shirley's baby mama flaunting her arse and caressing her stomach seductively.

Spoiler alert: It's not super hot.
