Holy Moly the drama never ends for Teen Mom OG star, Amber Portwood and her baby daddy, Gary Shirley!
Portwood, 25, was released from prison back in 2013 after serving just 16-months on drug-related charges. Since then Amber has worked hard to put her life back on track, however, her ongoing battle with baby daddy, Shirley, rages on.
“I’ve been out for three years and I’m sober,” Portwood said in a preview of the upcoming season.
The Teen Mom OG stars newest battle is for custody of their daughter, Leah, 7. Gary’s had sole custody of Leah since Amber went to prison in 2013.
“I want joint custody of my daughter.”
Gary doesn’t think Amber can provide a stable environment for Leah. Clearly, he doesn’t think Amber is ready for the responsibility. Previews for the new season show the custody drama. And to make matters worse, Gary does not approve of Amber’s fiancé, Matt Baier, 43. Shirley explained,
“Her fiancé has 7 kids and she doesn’t even know about this.”
Portwood addresses Gary’s criticism of Matt, “I’ve been with this man for over a year,” she shouted. “I think I know him.”
In October, a friend of Shirley shared his thoughts on Amber taking him to court, “He laughed hysterically when he heard that Amber wants to take him to court,” the insider said. “He said after all the crap Amber’s done, no judge will give her custody.”
The tug of war will be detailed in the new season of Teen Mom OG. Be sure to tune into the new season on MTV Jan. 4, 2016 at 10 PM ET.
