It's not looking good for Amber!
From the outside, it’s easy to assume that Amber Portwood is living a pretty nice life. She lives in a big home in Indiana with numerous dogs and, now, her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. When she makes public appearances, she’s always dolled up from head to toe in glamorous looks and professional makeup. In short, she’s got everything that comes with a celebrity status… or so it seems.
The truth is, Amber has some skeletons in her closet, and her time in prison isn’t the only dark spot in her history. She also owes a huge amount of money to Gary Shirley as well as Uncle Sam. And we’re not talking small amounts of change here either — Amber currently owes six figures in her numerous debts.
Like all of the Teen Mom cast members, Amber Portwood rakes in some serious cash for her appearances on MTV. Considering just how much money they make these days, it’s hard to imagine that the girls could have any serious financial problems — and yet it’s not a uncommon for the stars to hit some serious financial roadblocks. Now it’s clear that Amber Portwood has been dodging these pitfalls for a long time — and they’re all coming back to bite her.
In recent episodes of Teen Mom OG, Amber and Gary have been discussing some pretty uncomfortable topics. They mostly revolve around Amber’s participation in raising Leah (or lack thereof), as well as her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. However, there’s one more tricky topic that has been coming up in their tense conversations: Amber’s child support. According to Gary, Amber owes a sizeable amount in back payments for child support, and although the star has insisted that she has the money, she’s yet to actually pay it. This is unimaginably frustrating for Gary, but apparently it’s just the tip of the iceberg of just how much his baby mama owes.
According to Radar Online, the Teen Mom “was hit with a federal tax lien filed on February 19, 2016 for $134,919,21.” The outlet reports that Amber has yet to pay off the loan. This is on top of owing nearly $10,000 dollars in child support to Gary.
“She owes me $9,600,” Gary told Kristina in the last episode of Teen Mom OG. “Amber is not there. She is a come and go kind of mom. I don’t think her head is in kid mode.”
Couple in Debt
Amber isn’t the only one with a serious debt hanging over her. Her new boyfriend and second baby daddy Andrew also owes a huge sum. Radar reports that “[in] court papers obtained from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder, collection service Sequoia Concepts INC. hit Glennon, 33, with a judgment for $8,969.08 on January 8, 2008,” and he still has not paid that debt.
Although Amber owes a massive amount of money, she has some angry words of her own to share with her fanbase, and they don’t make Gary, Kristina, or MTV look very good.
“I’ve been through h*ll! MTV has turned my pregnancy and this relationship into a joke in one of the happiest times of my life,” she raged on Twitter. “Apparently my life is just for people to tell me how horrible I am as a mother because I went through depression!”
She added sarcastically, “Remember if your [sic] going through h*ll make sure you keep it all inside. And people should be able to say whatever they want about you. Especially your ex! Make sure when your [sic] suicidal that you always have your kid right next to you the whole time! It’s very healthy for them!! Idiots.”
