Amber Portwood has done some terrible things, and that's just a fact.
We've seen her abuse Gary Shirley, and we've seen her neglect her daughter, Leah, when she was younger.
We've certainly seen the toxic mess that was her relationship with Matt Baier.
But now that she's currently in the middle of both a criminal case and a custody case stemming from her alleged assault of Andrew Glennon in July, even more things are coming out about her.
And it's really, truly not looking good for her.
Such a Mess
It seems like every single day, the situation with Amber Portwood gets worse.
And honestly, that's because it kind of does.
It's been two months now since The Incident, and more and more details are coming out, and she keeps getting more and more open about her thoughts and feelings about everything, and it's just not great for anyone.
So just in case you forgot, Amber was arrested on the morning of July 5th after assaulting boyfriend Andrew Glennon and allegedly chasing him with a machete while he was holding their son, James.
According to Andrew's story, she was upset because they weren't able to go see fireworks the day before, and she'd been raging for hours about it.
She beat him with a shoe, which she admitted to doing, and police have photos of bruises and scratches from that, and he even claimed that she attempted suicide by taking a handful of pills that she later threw up after he threatened to call the police.
Somehow things escalated to the point where she grabbed a machete she kept by her bed in case of emergencies, and Andrew took James and ran to another room. He held the door closed with his foot while he texted 911 and held the poor kid.
She hasn't admitted to that part, but she has been charged with three felonies, one involving a deadly weapon, and police took several photos from inside the home as evidence against her, so it seems like there's a good chance the story could be true.
After the arrest, Andrew started doing what he needed to do to ensure that James stayed with him. He got an order of protection against Amber for himself and for James, which has since been lifted so that Amber can have the occasional supervised visit with him.
He's staying in the home he shared with Amber now, but he's asked the court for permission to take James back to Malibu, where he lived before moving to Indiana for Amber. She just officially contested it, so, you know, we'll see.
Speaking of contesting, Amber has just started getting more vocal about everything this week, beginning with the airing of the interview she did with Dr. Drew for the Teen Mom OG reunion special.
In that interview, she called Andrew's story "insane," and she also made fun of him because he texted 911 instead of doing what she would have done in his position, which would be to just run out of the house, apparently.
Dr. Drew agreed with her, and the whole thing was honestly pretty gross -- it was an abuser mocking her victim on national television, and everyone just went along with it.
And it seems like it set Andrew off in a big way.
He's been going off in the comments of his latest Instagram post because, as he explained it, "She gets magazines, websites, and the red carpet press treatment to publicly humiliate and slander me. I get this... you fine people."
He's made some serious accusations -- in one comment, he claimed that "she would lock herself in her closet until 6am smoking weed, listening to music and taking hydrocodone."
He's said that she wasn't just abusive that one night -- she treated him so badly that he had to start taking medication for the anxiety he felt over it.
But it gets worse. A lot, lot worse.
Thinking of James
One person suggested to Andrew on his Instagram post that he shouldn't be saying all these things about Amber because one day James could read it all, and he replied by saying "Shelter him from reality? I’m not going to be an assh-le, but I will be truthful and word it correctly to not raise bias or judgement. James must be aware."
The same person insisted that James shouldn't have to know about any of this, and Andrew commented back that "He’ll read that his father saved his life on the 4th of July and that is what we will be celebrating."
Since he said that he saved James' life, someone asked him if he honestly thought Amber could have killed him, and his response was simply horrifying.
"Hopefully not intentionally," he wrote, "but replaying it night after night in my head, there were so many close calls... I’m talking inches."
"I have never seen the person I saw that night, and it was utterly terrifying. A total loss of control, but she’s stated her mental illness played no part in the attack, so I don’t know what to think anymore," he continued.
"My nerves are raw but I keep it together for the security and wellbeing of baby James."
Not Having It
One of Amber's fans entered the conversation, telling Andrew not to slam Amber, and he replied with "I like how you downplay her mental illness just like she does... you gonna need it as a crutch anytime soon? You do what’s best for YOU, I’ll do what’s best for my son, protecting him from her onslaught of media attacks and physical attacks."
"And being shoved over flat on his back on a tile floor for opening cabinets," he wrote. "Or being thrown on the bed for crying. You focus on you."
And there we have it -- he just said that not only was Amber violent with him, but with sweet little baby James as well. Not only that, but to think she almost got James with a machete ...
And the sad part is that his accusations are pretty darn believable.
Amber has always shown that she has trouble dealing with babies and toddlers -- we saw that very clearly in the early days of Teen Mom.
She used to leave Leah crying in her crib for long stretches of time so she could lay in bed, and we all remember how she would groan "LEE-UHHHH" when Leah would, you know, act like a baby.
If this is true, we hope Andrew continues to do everything in his power to protect James. Because honestly, this is just a total nightmare.
