When Amber Portwood officially dumped Matt Baier, many members of the Teen Mom fanbase breathed a sigh of relief. Matt wasn’t exactly a crowd favorite; his near 20-year age difference from Amber and controversial personality made him into someone everyone in the fanbase loved to hate. The fact that he had an absurdly long list of baby mamas didn’t help either.
It wasn’t long before Amber moved on to someone new. By her estimation, it was around three months after she finally broke up with Matt. She was spotted smooching on a new man, who was a mystery to the fans before some of his personal details came to the surface. We’ve learned that his name is Andrew Glennon and that he’s much closer to Amber in age.
At first, things looked good for the new couple, but soon, some of Andrew’s dirt began rising to the surface, and this update has us worried that Amber hasn’t really taken that much of a step up.
As it turns out, the way that this couple met was a bit more interesting than your standard meet-cute. As have many members of the Teen Mom cast, Amber and Matt expanded their reality star portfolio by heading to Marriage Boot Camp in an effort to patch up their relationship. Obviously, that didn’t go so well, since that’s where Amber met her new bae, Andrew.
“Andrew worked in production on the show, and spent a lot of time with Amber,” an insider told Radar Online. “He worked on all her confessional scenes.” Apparently this time that they spent together turned into something more meaningful. The insider said, “Andrew quickly developed feelings for Amber, and made the first move.”
That said, the source specified that Amber and Andrew didn’t start seeing each other until she and Matt were officially over. “Amber says there was no cheating. Her and Matt had already broken up,” the source said. As for Matt, he weighed in briefly, telling Radar, “The most important thing is Amber is happy and safe.”
Now it looks like these two might have more struggles than you’d think: Apparently, Andrew has a serious debt of over $8,000, according to Radar Online. The outlet obtained court papers from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder that indicate collection service Sequoia Concepts INC served Andrew with a judgement for $8,969.08 on January 8th, 2008. The outlet also confirmed that a clerk of the court for the Registrar-Recorder’s Office indicated that Andrew hasn’t paid off his debt yet, even though it’s nearly a decade later.
It’s no secret that the cast members of Teen Mom make some pretty significant paychecks, so it’s only natural to wonder whether Andrew has any ulterior motives with Amber.
Amber seems to have a pattern of seeing men with financial difficulties. Matt was notorious for being a deadbeat and was sued by five of his exes for overdue child support payments. We’re all hoping that Amber’s new bae is a step up, but it’s hard not to notice the similarities between Andrew and Matt.
