Amber Portwood Finally Speaks Out; Why Is She "So Heartbroken?"

by at .

Amber Portwood has broken her silence.

But what, exactly, is she saying?

That's the question we must now ask ourselves.

Amber Portwood at a Reunion

The famous Teen Mom OG star was arrested early on the morning  of July 5 for domestic battery after she allegedly attacked boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

According to various articles and the police report, she also:

  • Threatened to kill herself.
  • Downed a number of pills and then later threw them back up.
  • Hurled a shoe at his face.
  • Used a machete to try and break down the bathroom door behind which Glennon was hiding.
  • Did all this while Andrew was holding the couple's 14-month old son.

If you're reading this now, you very likely know all this already.

But a few new developments have taken place since then.

Amber and Andrew

For one thing, Glennon has been granted an order of protection against Portwood.

She is banned from getting close to either her estranged boyfriend or her son without professional supervision, having finally seen James for the first time since her arrest on July 18.

Glennon has also filed for full custody of the infant, writing in court documents:

“Father believes it is in James’ best interests that he be awarded sole legal and primary physical custody. Father believes that it is not currently in James’ best interests for Mother to have unsupervised parenting time."

And now here's the latest personal news:

Glennon has allegedly been texting another woman.

Yes, already.

The report detailed immediately above states that Glennon and this unnamed female have been exchaning a handful of messages.

It even says that Glennon asked the woman for photos and for her to visit him in person, but she has thus far turned down the latter request.

How does Amber feel about this chatter?

This is where the Instagram post she shared on Tuesday night comes into play.

"I am so heartbroken right now... omg? Wow I guess the truth always comes out," Portwood wrote in the message, including with it an image of a heart breaking and being blown away.

Amber Responds?

Makes one think, doesn't it?

There had been a rumor that Glennon was cheating on Portwood prior to the violent incident a few weeks ago, although sources close to Andrew deny this being the case.

"Andrew has been nothing but faithful and loving to Amber since the day they met," a source told Us Weekly, adding:

"All he wanted was a happy family with Amber, but her lack of self-care with her mental health disorders and choosing not to take her medications regularly has caused great stress among the two."

Could Andrew stepping out on her with a mistress be what Amber is referring to when she cites the "truth," though?

Most likely, in our opinion.

Still, of course, such infidelity would not be an excuse for Portwood to actually, physically attack Andrew Glennon. We really hope she doesn't think it would be.
