Amber Portwood

Amber Portwood (born May 14th, 1990) from Anderson, Indiana, gave birth to daughter, Leah Leann Shirley, on November 12th 2008.  Amber and her on-again off-again fiance, Gary Shirley, had a volatile relationship.  Due to events shown on Teen Mom, Amber was arrested for domestic battery and neglect of a dependent in December of 2010.  She temporarily lost custody of Leah.  In June of 2011, Amber made headlines again when she was hospitalized for a suicide attempt.  Following her release from the hospital, she checked herself into a rehab facility in Malibu, California, to help her deal with her anger issues and depression.

  • Update – December 8, 2011 – Amber was released from rehab in August 2011.  Her and Gary are no longer an item and Amber is currently dating a 22 year old named Mike.
  • Update – January 27, 2012 – Amber Portwood makes a plea deal to avoid a 5 year jail term.  She will have to wait a few days to see if the judge will accept her plea. This will force her to take a drug rehab program, and then she will be out of legal trouble.
