“A lot of money went missing from Amber’s and Andrew’s joint bank account leading up to the fight,” a source tells US Weekly. Adding, that Andrew Glennon previously spent a large chunk of the Teen Mom OG star’s money “on inauthentic items at an auction.”
“Amber is very trusting, so at first when she noticed there was some money gone she did not want to make an issue out of it even though she is fully supporting their family financially,” the source added. “Amber wanted Andrew to contribute to their family on some level and that is an issue that had been brewing.”
According to Andrew’s camp, he unintentionally bought things from a fraudulent auction and is suing to reclaim the funds.
“Amber and Andrew became aware of their joint bank account being manipulated,” with unauthorized transactions being made in California and Georgia, the insider said, adding that the pair “agreed the best thing to do was to suspend that account and transfer the funds. She insisted on removing all the money from their joint account and buying a safe.”
Reportedly, Andrew works as a day trader and earns $1500 a day but “could not keep up with Amber’s unnecessary life expenses,” that included getting meals delivered via Doordash three or four times a day and ordering huge amounts of clothing for filming the MTV series. If the items didn’t fit, “she would just throw them in a huge pile in her closet and never once think to return them.”
“Andrew just recently paid for both of Amber’s car notes, her phone bill, the electrical bill, gas, cable bill, roof repairs, her furniture financing, [their son] James’ recent vaccinations, as well as all of his food and necessities,” the insider explained. “Every check Andrew would bring in would be quickly spent on the upkeep of the house.”
However, the Teen Mom OG star’s camp claims that she’s the breadwinner in the relationship — “all the money was coming from Amber.” Adding, “The only checks he brought in were from Teen Mom, a show that Amber is on that he’s a part of because of her,” the source says. “Amber also gave him many thousands to day trade with.”
On July 5, 2019, Amber attacked Andrew with a machete while he held their 1-year-old son. Amber was charged with criminal recklessness and two counts of domestic battery stemming from the incident that occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Friday at an Indiana home.
According to a source from Amber’s side, Andrew wasn’t completely innocent during the argument. “While Andrew claims to have feared for his life, he was actually egging her on and trying to push all of her buttons,” the source alleges. “She was doing her best to get him to stop and diffuse the situation and she never had or has any intentions of hurting him or their child.”
The reality star has admitted to hitting her baby daddy, but said it was lightly on his shoulder — and also claimed she only did it because he was recording her.
Andrew Glennon is seeking sole custody of their son after the incident.
