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:

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.

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.

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, Gary and Leah

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.

Wow. Amber Portwood is really going to beat his ass this time.

Gary Shirley was seen grinding on another girl (as seen in the image posted by Radar Online after the jump) in the latest drama from the Teen Mom tandem.

"They were making out, whispering to each other. She was even nibbling on Gary's ear," a witness said. "They were dancing and grinding with each other."

Has Gary Shirley moved on from Amber Portwood?

Despite being hit by Amber Portwood on national TV, then being dumped so she could date another man, Gary Shirley has stood by the Teen Mom star.

Why? It's extremely difficult to figure out. Seems he just can't quit her.

The parents of baby Leah even renewed their commitment recently. After seeing this, she's gonna renew her commitment to punching him in the head.

The most astonishing thing about Gary's creepin'? The girl was cute.
