Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley involved in an altercation that resulted in the cops being called? We can't imagine a bigger surprise.

Sure enough, the troubled mother of Leah called the police and filed a complaint against Gary Shirley, the father of their daughter, yesterday afternoon.

Please No More Babies

The MTV star told police that Gary was harassing her with phone calls and that Gary's girlfriend Ashley was heard on the phone in the background.

TEEN MOM DRAMA: This is an old screen shot. But probably an accurate account of yesterday's scuffle as well. At least it wouldn't surprise us. You?

Lieutenant Jerry Miller confirmed that police were called Thursday at 5:19 pm.

“[Amber Portwood] is saying that Gary was harassing her with phone calls and Ashley could be heard in the background," he said. “A report was taken.”

The police incident report says Amber requested cops go check on Gary after they made contact with her, in violation of the No Contact Order in place.

Ashley tells Radar Online that it's all blown out of proportion.

Autumn Jones is, for reasons no one can figure out, dating Teen Mom baby daddy Gary Shirley. What's more, Leah is already calling her mommy, supposedly.

“Leah has become really attached to Autumn,” a source close to the situation says of Gary's daughter with Amber Portwood, with whom he is estranged.

Maci Bookout Getting Married?

“Amber’s never around and doesn’t spend quality time with Leah, so she’s latching on to someone that makes her feel secure, and Autumn’s a good girl.”

Hell of a catch, Autumn Jones. You go girl.

Amber’s ex-fiancé has apparently been quietly dating Autumn for about a month now. Interestingly, Jones has one-year-old daughter of her own named Kalaya.

“We've been on four dates; twice to IHOP, once to Texas Roadhouse, then to the movies and stuff. He’s a total gentleman and paid every time,” Autumn said.

“But we hang out like five times a week and every time Leah is there I spend time with her. We usually just hang out at his house and watch movies."

"He says we can get to know each other better that way.”

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley have their differences, but the Teen Mom tandem is in agreement that they want control of Leah and contact with each other.

The pair will separately appear in an Anderson, Ind., court today in a bid to achieve both goals. For Gary, it's a No Contact Order against Amber he wants gone.

For Amber, it's to get the Department of Child Services out of her life, so that she can raise her baby girl without her being a ward of the State of Indiana.

One of Gamber's rare civil moments.

“Amber and Gary have the same goals,” a source close to the pair said. “They want the Department of Child Services out, so everything can go back to normal.”

Normal often meant Gary getting his ass whomped, with Leah present no less, so it's very possible the Department of Child Services could deny their request.

“If DCS denies Gary’s request, he’ll know what he’s up against,” the source said.

And you thought those altercations at Buffalo Wild Wings were intense ...

Rotund Teen Mom baby daddy and frequent punching bag Gary Shirley is working on a new clothing line specifically for dads and daughters.

Seriously, this is a real project.

The former fiance of Amber Portwood is calling the line "Gary Time" and the logo will have a "big clock," says a source close to Leah's father.

IT'S GARY TIME: The "big clock" currently reads 14:57.

The Gary Shirley source adds: "The shirts have already been made. He knows he has the platform from Teen Mom and can turn it into something to make money."

That platform also goes by the name Leah. Pray for her.

Gary Shirley has, by his own admission, talked hella $h!t about Amber Portwood. But that doesn't mean YOU can, the rotund one stated Thursday.

The Teen Mom star has taken quite the beating in the press thanks to Gary's remarks and leaked phone calls. Now he wants her to be left alone.

Poor Chelsea Houska

Seriously. As he told TMZ, there's still a chance they'll hook up again and he doesn't want to hurt those chances. Besides, she's a "good girl" ...

BY HER SIDE: Gary Shirley has Amber Portwood's back ... this morning.

"I've said a lot of s**t because I am mad," admits Gary Shirley, the father of baby Leah. "But if anyone else wants to come up and talk s**t about Amber I won't let it happen because she is a good girl, and she's my baby mama."

Indeed she is. Gar then sounded like a textbook spousal abuse victim, adding "I am fine with the fact that Amber hit me because she has gotten all the help that she needs. Ever since that she hasn't put her hands on me."

On a poignant, optimistic note, he concludes, "When the [restraining order] is lifted ... if she's single and I'm single, I'm sure we will try our relationship."

Brings a tear to your eye ...

Rumors are swirling that someone got Amber Portwood pregnant again. Gary Shirley, father of her daughter Leah, is adamant that if that's true, it's not his.

There's no sperm trail for another kid, Gary insists.

He told a friend Monday, "If she was pregnant it wouldn't be mine... If [the pregnancy] is true I will never f**king talk to her again. If she can make the mistake or stupidity to have a baby and not use a condom, it was totally her fault."

Is MTV's Teen Mom making like The Hills and playing up the drama for the cameras? Even staging it altogether? This new clip would strongly suggest so.

Amber Portwood's ex, Gary Shirley, got into an "argument" at Buffalo Wild Wings in Anderson, Ind., and wouldn't you know it, the cameras were there.

As we reported yesterday, Amber broke up with Clinton Yunker, her latest boyfriend, this week. As he celebrated his single status, Gary walked in ...

The video above, in which Gary argues with Clint's brother, shows him inciting other people in the restaurant and threatening to make them "famous."

Gary seems to know exactly what's going on, making you wonder if the whole thing is a setup to make money - and what other scenes that applies to.

Amber Portwood has told police the violence was "real" and that her beatings of Gary were not encouraged by the network, but we're a bit suspect.

Yesterday we played a video of Amber Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, laughing at and antagonizing the volatile, troubled Teen Mom star.

Often seen as the victim of her attacks, this cast Gary in a different light. Now, the audio below poses additional questions about Gary's role.

On December 15, Shirley desperately tried to get his other chick, a frequent target of Amber's threats, to cover up yet another beatdown.

Gary admits that Amber "f**king hit me" and can clearly be heard telling his girl how to stonewall reporters who got wind of the altercation.

In return for Ashley's silence, Gary says, "Maybe one day we can start a family." Isn't that the mentality that  ... whatever, here's the tape:

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.
