When it was revealed that Amber Portwood had found a new man, her fans were over the moon for her. They were revealed that she had finally found someone new, because it seemed that her ex, Matt Baier, had only pulled her back into a place of drug addiction and depression.
At the beginning, there were nothing but good things about Andrew out there. He was spending time with Amber, he was closer to her age, and they seemed to have a loving relationship. However, as he spends more time in the limelight, more and more red flags are popping up. In addition to having not one but two restraining orders filed against him by his ex-girlfriends, it looks like Andrew has a history of depression and addiction, all things that Amber has been working to break free from.
For anyone who thought that Amber was turning a new leaf in her relationship with Andrew Glennon, it appears that it may, in fact, be more of the same. Amber has struggled with addiction to substances as well as mental health problems in the past, and it looks like she has that in common with her new man.
Andrew opened up to Radar Online, explaining his past of falling on hard times. “I have been through so much pain in my life,” he said to the outlet. “My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer while my mother was fighting breast cancer. I prepped myself to potentially lose both of my parents. My mother survived, but my father did not.”
This resulted in him falling into a “tailspin.” He told Radar, “Depression, drinking and throwing my heart through any open door. It nearly cost my life.”
Unlike his past of accusations of stalking, Andrew says that he’s willing to be open about this. “I am willing to share every experience I’ve had, good and bad, because I am not the only one with a past,” he told Radar. “I would have addressed this openly on camera had I been given the opportunity.”
As for the restraining orders, they paint a not-so-nice picture of Amber’s new man. One ex claimed, “On my birthday, [he] showed up at my work under a false name delivering flowers. Security at my work turned him away,” and that Andrew “threw rocks at my window and smiled and laughed when he saw me look.”
Another claimed that “since breaking up with him, I have received hundreds of emails, phone calls, text messages and Facebook messages from him harassing me. He has shown up at my work, home and the bus stops I take to and from work as well,” according to Radar Online.
However, Andrew doesn’t have the same take on the events. He told Radar that the reports were “out of context and there is so much more to these accusations.” He added, “I have three sisters and would never consider stalking nor harassing any women. In hindsight, I should have contested the first one (didn’t know about the second).”
As for Amber’s reaction, it seems that she’s having a difficult time making sense of the news. “This is jeopardizing our relationship, which tears my heart,” Andrew said in an interview with Radar. “She is still processing. Right now everything is up in the air.”
