For weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Amber Portwood and Matt Baier have broken up.
In the early stages, neither half of Mamber did much to deny the rumors, and at several points, Amber seemed to stop just short of confirming them.
Amber fans have been arguing that Portwood should kick Baier’s ass to the curb for years now, and their case has grown much stronger in recent weeks.
For one thing, we learned earlier this month that Baier was caught cheating on Portwood.
To be fair, he wasn’t busted red-handed, but he did fail a lie detector test, which was clearly enough to give Amber some serious doubts.
On top of that, Baier – who had claimed to be sober after years of substance abuse – revealed that he recently fell off the wagon and was high for many of his Teen Mom outbursts.
It was brave of him to admit to his struggles in an interview, but the relapse doesn’t bode well for the future of his relationship.
Amber used to struggle with the same addictions that are plaguing Matt, and as a mom, it’s probably not wise for her to stay with a man who could well lead her back down a dangerous path.
Anyway, while there’s still no official word from either Baier or Portwood, fans who are rooting for Amber to give Matt the boot are finding encouragement in her most recent tweet.
"Ready to move forward and be the woman I’ve always strived to be with no one holding me back!” she wrote.
“New beginning starts now.”
That could refer to a lot of things, but coming from a woman who’s rumored to be in the midst of a bad breakup, it sends a pretty clear message.
And that’s not all:
Insiders tell Radar Online that Matt has bailed on filming the Teen Mom: OG reunion show in New York this weekend, even though he was scheduled to attend as recently as last week.
“He could always change his mind, but as of now, he’s not expected to attend,” one source tells Radar.
Another tipster confirms that Matt and Amber have 100% called it quits … but there’s a catch:
“They broke up again, but Amber has a hard time saying no to him,” the friend said.
“She knows he has nowhere to go if she kicks him out.”
Yeah, you may want to hold off on your celebration dance until Matt is completely out of the house.
In the meantime, watch Teen Mom online to relive Matt and Amber’s tumultuous relationship.
