Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested after allegedly assaulting boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
The details of the incident were brutal -- according to the police report, Amber attacked Andrew with a machete and struck him while he held the couple's 1-year-old son -- and things only got worse from there.
At this point, several audio recordings have emerged in which Amber threatens to kill Andrew and can be heard assaulting him in the presence of their baby.
Fans assumed such horrific abuse would result in Amber being fired from Teen Mom OG -- but according to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, Portwood still has her job at MTV.
Here's what we know about the situation thus far:
Amber Portwood has been accused of truly horrific acts of abuse, and there's a mountain of evidence pointing to her guilt. Despite this, it seems she has not been fired from Teen Mom OG.
Getting Away With It
In a shocking new report from The Ashley's Reality roundup, a production insider confirms that Portwood still has a job, and will continue to appear on new episodes of Teen Mom OG.
A Baffling Decision
“Amber has 100 percent filmed for the new season,” says the source. “She is not being fired by MTV."
Letting It Ride
It seems insane that MTV and parent company Viacom would risk so much by continuing to employ someone who is quite clearly guilty of domestic abuse.
But it seems the powers that be believe Portwood's story will continue to attract viewers. And with ratings at an all-time low, TMOG needs all the help it can get.
“[The producers] plan to film with Amber through her court trial [for the domestic battery charges]," says the insider.
