Amber Portwood, bless her heart, has had a hell of a life so far.
She got pregnant at the tender age of 16, she’s dealt with substance abuse issues bad enough to send her to prison.
And the two most significant relationships of her life have been with Gary Shirley and Matt Baier.
It’s enough to make you weep for the girl.
But the most recent tragedy to befall Amber, according to rumors that began circulating back in August, was a miscarriage.
A Teen Mom gossip site claimed that a lawyer who worked with the show had spoken to them about Amber’s miscarriage, and the details were grim.
"The lawyer says a prescription drug addiction is the cause of the miscarriage," the report stated.
"He also says Matt has been treating Amber horribly ever since it happened although he is the one who enables her problems."
So not only did she suffer an alleged miscarriage, she suffered an alleged miscarriage because of alleged drug use.
What an alleged nightmare.
When the rumors first started making the rounds, Amber didn’t say much, but she did post a handy little Marilyn Monroe quote:
"When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m better than them anyway."
So if the quote was Amber’s response to the rumors, it seems like her stance was "think what you want, I don’t care." Which, interestingly enough, wasn’t so much of a denial as it was just sass.
But on this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber took creepy ol’ Matt Baier on Dr. Drew’s show specifically to discuss those rumors. And wow.
"It’s not true at all," she said.
And there you have it.
About the prescription pill abuse rumor that went along with the one about the miscarriage, she said it’s also "not true at all."
In fact, she tells Dr Drew that "you would be the first to call me out," because you know Dr. Drew would be all over it if he suspected she wasn’t sober.
But then Matt jumped in to elaborate, and also to pretend that he’s famous for a reason that isn’t sad and sketchy.
"Dr. Drew, that’s actually the reason we wanted to come on," he began his big important statement.
Seriously though, can’t you just feel the sleaze rolling off this guy?
"That’s the article that kind of pushed us over the edge," he went on.
"Because when you start attacking the sobriety and talk about the loss of a child and say that a mystery Teen Mom lawyer is the source, that’s when we really decided to speak up about this stuff."
"We’ve been quiet about this for about a year, and it kind of pushed us over the edge."
Did you get pushed over the edge, Matt? Did you? Was there an edge that you got pushed over? So sorry, bro.
The issue, however, is that Matt has never been the most trustworthy guy, and we love Amber, but since she’s so deeply involved with this creep, it’s hard to trust her, too.
At this point though, we pretty much just have to take their word for it. So Amber is sober and she never had a miscarriage: take that little bit of sadness off the heap of heartbreak.
It’s getting pretty huge these days.
