Matt Baier: Lying to Amber Portwood About His Sobriety!

by at .

Matt Baier and Amber Portwood are seen here in a Teen Mom OG therapy session in which he reveals that he's been lying about his sobriety.

Raise your hand if you're surprised?

If you watch Teen Mom OG online, you know that Portwood used to be the hottest mess on the MTV franchise ... and her state prison.

Not a small feat, in other words.

Since she got out of jail, though, she's really turned her life around, maintaining her sobriety and being a good mother to her daughter, Leah.

The only issue is her gross, sketchy fiance, Matt Baier. And with this new sneak peek clip from next week's installment, well ...

It's looking like he's even grosser and sketchier than we ever could have imagined, which is also not a small feat at this point.

"I did absolutely exaggerate the length of my sobriety," the recovering addict reveals in a therapy session he attends with Amber.

"Even with her when I first met her."

You slimy, slimy douchebag.

When Matt was first introduced on the reality show, he was supposed to be this person that had battled with addiction, just like Amber.

Their bond, however unlikely on the surface, was largely due to the fact that he had beaten the odds and achieved sobriety, just like Amber.

Yeah, apparently not so much.

"He wasn't sober when I met him," Amber explains in the clip, but says she wasn't duped by that fact at the time. "And I knew it."

"I can say that he would not have been sober if it wasn't for me, because I took those f-cking pills, poured them down the toilet and threw it at him."

Matt laughs at the memory of that mental image, and says that when it happened, he "wanted to go swimming after" the pills.

However, he claims that "that was the day my sobriety really kicked in ... it was either her or drugs, and I wasn't giving up her."

Well, that's ... sweet? A nice sentiment? Even inspirational?

No, it's just as sad and weird as everything else Matt does.

It's great that Matt is sober these days, and if Amber inspired him, then that's lovely, sure. But the fact remains that this is a toxic pattern.

His sobriety is one more thing he's lied about, and it's one more thing that he's gotten the Teen Mom star to lie about on his behalf.

He's shady, and Amber doesn't need a shady character in her life. Not with how far she's come, and after all she's been through.

To her credit though, Amber says in the clip that when she first got with Matt, "I said, 'you will not be with me if you're doing this sh-t.'"

"He made the decision."

"I can't be with someone who's using," she recalls, yet, if she were even in a position where she had to flush his pills down the toilet ...

That would mean he was using, yes?

As illogical and concerning and disappointing as it may be, Amber and Matt Baier are getting married at some point in the near future.

"I love Matt because I knew his potential when I met him," she explains. "He was such a good person, he was so sweet. It was genuine."

"I can usually tell when somebody's bullsh-tting me. He's done so much in his life that people won't let him move forward."

"I'll let him move forward."

And yeah, that's great, but she shouldn't "let him move forward" at the risk of her own health and happiness, or her daughter's.

If he wasn't sober when they met, and if he lied to her about how many kids he has, and if he made her think he was genuine?

Forget the fact that he tried to get with Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans first, he's just not a good dude for her in the end.

No amount of these confessions or revelations or whatever is going to change that, no matter what she likes to tell herself.
