It's been less than six months since Amber Portwood was arrested on domestic violence charges following an altercation with her now-ex.
The allegations are familiar to fans by now, and they are scary.
She is accused of attacking her then-partner, Andrew Glennon, with a machete. While he hid in the bathroom from her, with their baby.
One might think that given the tumultuous circumstances, she might take some time to pause, reflect and cool it on the romantic front.
But Amber has never been one to remain single for long.
(In fact, there's been more than a bit of sketchy overlap between a few of her relationships, but that's a conversation for another time.)
In any event, it should come as no surprise that Amber is already dating a new guy. Nor is it shocking how the new couple first met.
Like her previous fiance, Matt Baier, it seems this dude is a big Teen Mom fan who first began his relationship with Amber online.
But that's where the similarities end ... and this honestly shounds pretty wack, even by MTV reality star standards. Take a look:
Off the Market
Amber Portwood has already found a new man. As we discussed above, the longtime Teen Mom OG star ended her previous relationship with Andrew Glennon over the summer after she was arrested on domestic violence charges.
Now, UK tabloid The Sun is reporting that Amber has already found herself a new man thanks to the Internet. And this time, she's going international in her search for cyber-love!
Meet Dimitri Garcia. He's a Belgian citizen and a big Teen Mom fan. Oh, and he's also dating Amber Portwood.
A Transcontinental Romance
Dimitri and Amber reportedly hit it off after he reached out to her on social media. Not long afterward, he visited her in Indiana.
"They hit it off. She really likes him," a production insider tells The Sun. (Apparently he's cleared whatever low bar Amber Portwood sets for herself during the 2-3 hours she's single in between serious, long-term relationships.)
International Man of Mystery
Little is known about Dimitri at this point, other than the fact that he's 39 and has at least one child himself. (Hey, Matt Baier had between 7-9, depending on who you ask, so if he's got fewer than about four, this should be downright easy for her to wrap her head around.)
A Pattern Emerges
So Dimitri fits into Amber's dating M.O., as she tends to prefer older men ... who flirt with her online. It should be no surprise to fans who have followed her tumultuous personal life for years that the new man has been drawing a lot of comparisons to one ex in particular.
The Belgian Baier
Remember Matt Baier? Of course you do! Who could forget the Boston-based deadbeat dad and obsessive Teen Mom fan who once stole Amber's heart? For a period of years? Despite the fact that he fathered between 7-9 kids during a life lived in the throes of addiction?
(Side Note: We really wouldn't have guessed the Teen Mom audience is made up of quite so many middle-aged dudes with kids who openly reach out and flirt with the moms, but we digress.)
Like Dimitri, Matt was a big-time Teen Mom superfan - he previously tried to hit up Jenelle Evans and Farrah Abraham over Twitter as well, a hilarious fact many seem to forget - who fell for Amber at first sight. He slid into Amber's DMs on a whim one day, and the rest was history.
We're hoping that unlike Matt, Dimitri isn't living his life on the run because he owes back child support for like half a dozen kids. We'd have to guess that his past probably isn't as sketchy as that, but you never know these days.
Amber and Matt called it quits while filming a season of Marriage Boot Camp (they were never married, but we digress) and he later accused Portwood of assaulting him on numerous occasions.
Fortunately for Amber, she was able to move on from Matt within approximately 35 minutes, as the next love of her life just happened to be working as a producer ... on Marriage Boot Camp!
Yes, Amber and Andrew Glennon got serious in a hurry, under kind of shady circumstances. But Glennon certainly seemed like he was in this for the long haul. He moved to Indiana to be with her, and less than a year later, they welcomed a child together.
Same Old Amber
Sadly, in July of this year, the problems and allegations experienced by Mamber paled in comparison to what Portwood and Glennon would endure. Amber was arrested for assaulting Andrew, and if you believe the 911 calls and allegations by Glennon, this was no run of the mill shoving match.
According to the police report, Portwood struck Glennon while he was holding the couple's infant son. Glennon claims she later attacked him with a machete as he took cover behind a door.
It's Kind of Her Thing
If you're keeping score at home, Amber has now been accused of assaulting every single man she's gotten serious with in her adult life - Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter Leah, followed by Baier and Glennon.
Watch Your Step
It's for that reason that fans are cautioning Dimitri to be very careful as his relationship with Amber progresses, lest he end up on the business end of her obvious anger management problem.
If it sounds like we're being too rough, perhaps we are in assuming that her new boyfriend will one day end up in a scary situation. But remember, Amber did time in part due to her domestic assault on Gary Shirley, and she narrowly avoided the same fate after her July arrest.
Proceed With Caution
Amber denies the allegations, of course, but it's worth noting that two of the charges against her ultimately resulted in convictions.
Can't Be Too Careful
Fortunately, for now at least, Dimitri has an ocean of distance keeping him safe. That would be the Atlantic Ocean. Belgium is in Europe.
It Goes Down in the DMs
In addition to her violent past, fans are roasting Amber for the fact that she keeps meeting and eventually banging random Teen Mom fans who reach out to her on Instagram.
Amber probably didn't love this fan's assessment of the situation, but hey - the truth hurts.
No Time to Waste
Of course, it's anyone's guess how serious Amber and Dimitri will get, but it's worth noting that Portwood's relationships tend to get serious in a hurry.
Hard Times Ahead
So if you're the praying type, you may want to ask whatever higher power you believe in to protect Dimitri in the months ahead. This guy may not know what he's getting into and probably needs all the help he can get.
