If you watch Teen Mom online, you know that Amber Portwood and Matt Baier have done a decent job of convincing fans that after years of substance abuse, run-ins with the law, and seriously questionable parenting practices, their lives are now fully stable.
Unfortunately, the facade that the couple maintains on the show belies the constant state of turmoil in which they seem to live.
Last month, we learned that Amber and Matt were being sued by a former landlord for failure to pay rent and destruction of property.
Shortly thereafter, word got out that Amber and Matt were being sued by their current landlord for falling behind on their rent yet again.
That landlord has already started eviction proceedings, and he’ll face off with Portwood and Baier in court next month.
Now, according to Radar Online, another lawsuit has been filed against Baier, this one for unpaid medical bills.
According to court documents obtained by the website, Matt owes nearly 5 grand for services rendered:
“Unpaid balance for medical services of $4,666.07,” reads the filing.
“Reasonable attorney fees if awarded by the court of $550.”
Add that to the $6,015.74 they owe for the January lawsuit and the $2,200 the current landlord is requesting, and Matt and Amber are on the hook for a pretty serious chunk of change.
And we haven’t even mentioned Baier’s multiple unpaid child support suits that are estimated to cost the couple well over $10,000.
Now, Amber obviously earns a pretty good salary from Teen Mom and her other revenue streams, by all indications, she’s somehow seriously strapped for cash.
People with plenty of disposable income generally don’t fall multiple months behind on their rent at two consecutive apartments.
It’s anyone’s guess as to what Matt and Amber are spending their money on, but considering their shared history of addiction, it’s not hard to see why many fans are openly wondering if the couple is using together.
Whatever the case, Amber’s life is clearly not as rosy as the one she presents on Teen Mom.
Hopefully, the fan favorite will be able to sort things out ASAP.
