Way back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested after allegedly assaulting then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
And somehow, the situation has continued to get uglier and more bizarre just about every day since.
The latest controversy has to do with allegations that Amber was bailed out by a woman named Rhonda Russell.
It appears that Russell briefly worked for Amber, and she now wants her $2,000 back.
Enter Shawn "Bubby" Portwood, who claims the whole thing is made up, and Russell is nothing but a con artist.
Folks, you can't make this stuff up:
The Bubby Factor
For someone who's been accused of repeated acts of domestic violence, Amber Portwood enjoys a LOT of support from both loved ones and fans. Of course, her biggest defender remains her creepily close brother, Shawn Portwood.
Though he says he never liked Glennon from the start, Shawn supported Amber throughout her most recent relationship.
The Stakes Are High
And now he's supporting her through a scandal that could land her behind bars for a very long time.
That Fateful Night
As you've likely heard by now, Amber was arrested back in July after allegedly assaulting Andrew with a machete and repeatedly striking him while he held the couple's 1-year-old son, James.
Not for the first time in her life, Amber was taken into police custody following a violent altercation inside her home.
A Free Woman
Amber is quite well-off, so it came as no great surprise when she was able to post bail. But interestingly, she's not the one who came up with the money.
