For all of the intense and often upsetting scenes that take place on Teen Mom, even more happen off camera. When the crews leave and the cameras stop rolling, the cast members don’t stop living their lives. But it’s up to them to share with fans what really happens when they’re off air, and now we’re seeing the dark side of domestic violence allegations that have happened off screen.
Currently, Amber Portwood is in the thick of domestic violence charges brought against her by the father of her second child.
Ever since she first appeared on Teen Mom, Amber Portwood has made it clear that she is willing to fight for anything that believes in, for better or for worse. Her fighting — both verbal and physical — has gotten her into a world of trouble, especially when it turns into very serious cases of domestic battery.
But according to Amber, she’s not the only one who’s been violent.
After a convoluted report of fighting and battery, video of the notorious time Amber pulled a machete on her baby daddy was leaked.
The video quickly went viral in the Teen Mom world, and fans were shocked to see the ruthless battle between Amber and Andrew Glennon, all of which took place while their son James was present.
But longtime fans of Teen Mom know that this isn’t the first complicated relationship that Amber has been a part of.
Not long before she started dating Andrew, Amber was dating the notorious Matt Baier. Their relationship was difficult and explosive during the best times and downright scary at the worst. After numerous breakups and makeups, they finally split up after Matt failed a lie detector test about whether or not he’d cheated on her.
After the two parted ways, Amber began dating Andrew, but Matt didn’t stay single for every long. He very quickly married a new woman named Jennifer!
