Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has officially been charged for hitting and shoving her former fiance Gary Shirley on an episode of the MTV reality show.

Portwood was charged by the Madison County (Ind.) prosecutor’s office with two counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent.

Those are all felonies, in part because their two-year-old daughter Leah was there for it. A misdemeanor charge of domestic battery was also filed.

THAT HURTS! Amber is feeling the pain of felony charges.

Portwood faces up to three years in jail and fines of up to $10,000 for each of the counts, which also led to her temporarily losing custody of Leah.

Privately, the reality of facing criminal charges has brought Amber to the edge as she is facing the sobering truth about her future slipping away.

Here's hoping she gets it together sooner rather than later, for all of their sakes. Here's just one of her televised attacks on Gary Shirley ...

Did MTV not only allow, but encourage Amber Portwood to lay the smack down on Gary Shirley on Teen Mom? That's the allegation of a new tabloid report.

Portwood is planning to use that as a defense against the felony charges she faces after manhandling Gary on a recent episode, the National Enquirer says.

Just when we were willing to give Teen Mom its due for lowering teen pregnancy rates, we learn MTV may be handing out bonuses for domestic violence. Wow.

Amber caught Gary off guard. The producers? Possibly not.

The 20-year-old single mom was recently charged with two felony counts of domestic battery after she was shown kicking and punching Gary this fall.

He was fine, but Amber and Gary's 2-year-old daughter, Leah, was present during two of the violent attacks, contributing to the felony classification.

Amber Portwood insists the violence was all a ruse and that show execs gave her an extra $1,000 to "get physical" with her ex during filming. Why?

Because they "wanted more drama," says an insider.

Amber Portwood's new boyfriend, Clinton Yunker, is perfect for her.

That's according to his mom, who is speaking out to the press for some reason, and says that the couple's relationship is "mature." Well, we're sold!

Maybe we should be more open-minded. Pre-Clinton, the Teen Mom star and Gary Shirley set the bar VERY low. Anyway, Judith Reagan explains:

Clinton Yunker Mug Shot

YUNK IN THE TRUNK: Clint just made our celebrity mug shots album!

"I am pleased Clinton is in a mature relationship with Amber. It has been very difficult for us all since there have been so many negative articles."

"It is his life and he can date who he chooses but the relationship has caused an unexpected situation being in the public eye," says Yunk's mama.

"I haven't spent enough time with her to know if it is meant to be."

Amber Portwood and Shirley share custody of Leah, who just turned two. As for Clinton Yunker's OWN love child, which he fathered as a teenager?

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood may not be pregnant, but she is back to her old ways in another respect - attacking her ex and his new girlfriend!

Portwood physically attacked Gary Shirley for the second time this month, threatening his current girlfriend Ashley in the process Tuesday night.

Amber Pregnant Again?

Amber had bonded with Ashley after she thought her relationship with Leah's father had cooled. But when she learned it hadn't, girl went OFF.

UNHAPPY FAMILY: Tranquil, ordinary moments like this are few.

"Amber said Gary was sending her flowers and texting her, saying he hadn't been talking to Ashley," a source said, but once they got to Gary's house?

"Amber hit Gary for trying to play both of them."

The night soon turned even uglier when Amber, already facing felony battery charges for a prior, televised attack, realized he was still dating Ashley.

"When Amber learned that Gary was still communicating with Ashley, she got in Ashley's face like she was going to hit her," the source added.

Amber Portwood of Teen Mom fame is not pregnant again thank goodness.

"The rumors are absolutely false. I'm not pregnant," Portwood said in response to new rumors that Amber is pregnant and doesn't know who the dad is.

"I'm just working hard to be the best mom," she says of Leah, her 2-year-old with ex-fiance Gary Shirley. "I have no plans to have more kids anytime soon."

Amber Pregnant Again?

NOT PREGNANT: We can't verify the eight guys in two months part, but Amber Portwood is most definitely not carrying another baby inside her right now.

Amber, who is dating Clinton Yunker, was supposedly "rooting" for it to be Gary's baby because she feels they will be back together someday. Moot point now.

It's been a turbulent year. So much so, she's excited just to be back with her little girl again. For a brief period, Leah was under the State of Indiana's control.

After weeks apart, she and Leah reunited December 6 at Portwood's new home in Anderson, Ind. Portwood "is so excited to have Leah back!" a source said.

Just days after reuniting with Leah, her two-year-old girl, Teen Mom's Amber Portwood discovered she's getting her an extra-special gift this Christmas:

A sibling! She's pregnant again, according to Star!

Jodie Sweetin, Zoie Herpin

We know, we know. It's Star. Generally nonsense. But the celeb news magazine claims she took a home pregnancy test December 4 ... and it's positive!


TEEN MOM RELOADED? Amber was NOT happy when she found out!

"Amber is scared to death about what's to come," an insider says. "She adores Leah, but she doesn't really want to be tied down with another baby."

The 20-year-old almost saw her cover blown Friday when she had her first bout of morning sickness. Luckily, boyfriend Clinton Yunker didn't catch on.

"He'll freak if she's pregnant," said the source.

Then there's the million-dollar question. In addition to being engaged and breaking up with Gary Shirley constantly, Amber Portwood has also been with Yunker ... and some other dudes. If this pregnancy's real, the dad's ID is anyone's guess!

She's pulling for Gary, though, because they're "meant to be together." Maybe so, but imagine the beating he'll take for not using protection ...

Amber Portwood is back together with Leah, her baby daughter, after a brief period of estrangement courtesy of the State of Indiana. Being reunited feels so good ... for them. Teen Mom fans and Gary Shirley are probably very worried.

They look happy here, at least ...

POOR LEAH: Not only is her mom crazy, but leopard print? Really?!

In October, Child Protective Services decided Leah should live temporarily with dad Gary Shirley, Amber Portwood's ex-fiance and frequent beating victim.

Gary's new girlfriend better watch her back too. Just saying. Careful.

But Amber Portwood is now in therapy and. despite facing felony battery charges for attacking Gary in an episode that aired on MTV, deemed fit for Leah.

She's also got a brand-new three-bedroom home in Anderson, and "is so excited to have Leah back," a source tells Us. "She has a bedroom all set up."

The county jail has a cell set up for her too, we heard. Just in case.

We can debate all day whether or not MTV glorifies teen pregnancy, but one of its more infamous reality stars certainly doesn't make her life look appealing.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is once again in the spotlight, and it's not because her baby daughter's so darn cute. It's because of - you guessed it - RAGE.

We reported recently about Amber's ex, Gary Shirley, creepin' on random girls. Turns out he's started dating one of them, and the situation came to a head.

Amber Portwood, Gary Shirley and Leah in less turbulent times.

"Gary and his new girl were hanging out on Friday night and Amber was late night texting him like she always does," a source close to the situation said.

"His date thought it was inappropriate, the things Amber said, so she called and told her to quit trying to get him to hang out because he's moved on."

Portwood has also moved on with Clinton Yunker, but friends close to the reality TV star say she still holds out hope of getting back with Gary Shirley.

Christina Renee Robinson and her new 16 and Pregnant counterparts have a ways to go before they can compete with the hot mess that is Amber Portwood.

The Teen Mom star, having recently welcomed home baby Leah after a rough period, showed just how hard she hearts her little girl with an epic new tattoo.

AMBER GETS LEAH BACK ... for better or worse!

A couple of thoughts on that hot new ink:

  1. Instead of a "symbolic" statement, why not just be a good parent?
  2. Why get the kid from Two and a Half Men tattooed on yourself?

Amber Portwood and her baby Leah have reunited.

The two-year-old was under Indiana's control (as in the State of Indiana) after a very turbulent period, but officials returned her to the Teen Mom star Monday.

"Leah is moving into Amber's new home, where Amber had her daughter’s bedroom all set up," a source says. "Amber is so excited to have Leah back!"

LEAH'S HOME: Mother and daughter are together once again.

Just last week, we learned that Leah became a ward of the state, meaning decisions over where she lives falls to a judge and a government agency.

Portwood and ex-fiance Gary Shirley had earlier agreed that Leah was better off living with him for the time being. Child Protective Services agreed.

"It was safer for her to stay at Gary's because of all the photographers outside my house," Amber Portwood, who lives in Anderson, Ind., explained.
