Breakups can be extremely difficult for everyone involved. Especially after lengthy relationships, it can be hard to take apart all the pieces of your life and separate them from your ex. We’ve all gone through those awkward moments of trying to determine what belongs to whom in the breakup, but what about when it’s more than just your favorite hoodie or the puppy you adopted together?
After Amber Portwood finally dumped Matt, she realized that there was something he made off with. In fact, there was a lot he made off with: $120,000! With her Teen Mom salary, Amber Portwood was the clear breadwinner of the relationship, but that didn’t stop Matt Baier from being the big spender. Now, Amber is dealing with the hard fact that her three-year relationship cost her over a hundred grand of her savings.
There are some Matt Baier diehard fans out there, but the majority of the Teen Mom fanbase breathed a sigh of relief once Amber and Matt officially called it quits. Matt was nearly twenty years older than Amber, and the two seemed to bicker and fight more than they actually got along. Pair that with the fact that Matt hit on Jenelle and Farrah on Twitter before dating Amber, and most fans were more than ready to say good riddance.
Well, apparently Amber was, too. She finally kicked Matt to the curb, and has since made a serious life change with her new boyfriend, Andrew Glennon. Even though Andrew has yet to appear on an episode of Teen Mom OG, Amber recently confirmed that the new couple is expecting a baby.
Unfortunately for Amber, that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of her problems are in the past. In fact, she’s facing $120,000 worth of problems right now.
Amber has been a Teen Mom star for long enough that her net worth is pretty significant. With the girls making a huge chunk of change for every episode, she’s been able to live a much more lavish lifestyle than she ever dreamed, but money does come with downsides. After dating Matt for a matter of years, she decided to open a joint bank account with him, giving him complete access to all of her finances in the process. Now, she’s realizing just how much of a problem that was.
During recent episodes of Teen Mom OG, Amber and Matt’s relationship has been clearly heading down the drain. In one scene, Amber rants to her brother about just how much Matt had taken advantage of her during their time together. “He told me that we could separate our bank accounts if it makes me feel good,” she said. “Within the last three years we’ve been together, tallying everything up, it’s been $120,000 that I have no clue where it’s went. We’re not engaged and I feel like he’s a pathological liar.”
Apparently, Matt has been sneaking huge amounts of Amber’s money out the back door to his daughter. “And I just realized he’s sending his daughter money that’s not even his money!”
Although many fans commiserate with Amber, others have been railing against Matt’s manipulative ways for years. After all, he was able to live the high life with Amber for the years they were together, making incredibly expensive purchases like the time that he bought her a car for her birthday… with her money.
The past is in the past, but Amber will still have to find some way to account for the money Matt took from their shared account. In the meantime, Matt has clearly moved on and is actually now married to a Las Vegas waitress!
