Andrew Glennon Has Recording of Amber Portwood: She Threatened to Slit My Throat

No one is more proud of Amber Portwood’s growth and accomplishments than Amber herself.

As wonderful as that is, it does not erase the past — or make it any less relevant to how people view her, or to how the court rules on custody.

Amber’s violent past is not in question, but Andrew Glennon says that the court does not yet know the extent of it.

In court, he recalled an incident where Amber threatened to slit his throat in his sleep — and revealed that he has the audio to prove it.

Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon continue to duke it out in court.

Andrew hopes to move to California, where he has job offers on the table, and wants to take 3-year-old son James with him.

Amber is fighting that, hoping to keep James in Indiana where she lives.

The Sun reports that Andrew offered testimony to the judge about an alleged incident that took place months before Amber’s domestic violence arrest.

On April 15 of 2019, Amber allegedly threatened to do bodily harm to James in very explicit terms.

Andrew provided the court details … and offered up an audio recording.

“The audio ends with her saying ‘I’m going to f–king stab you,'” Andrew testified.

“She said she will slit my throat in my sleep,” he continued.

Those are extremely alarming and specific-sounding threats, if Andrew’s allegations are true.

Amber’s attorney hit back, demanding to know from Andrew if Amber had made these alleged threats after telling him to get away from her.

Andrew replied: “I don’t know.”

The attorney then suggested that Amber was “not aware she was being recorded,” prompting Andrew to say “no,” indicating that he believes that she knew.

That particular exchange at first appears to be about whether the recording is legal.

However, Indiana is a one-party consent state, meaning that if even one person in a conversation consents to being recorded, it is legal to do so.

We are not legal experts, but are unaware of any specifics in Indiana law or in Andrew and Amber’s situation that would make the recording inadmissible even if Amber didn’t know about it.

Andrew’s team asked that the audio evidence be played in court and entered into the record.

Amber’s side of course fought back, asking the court to refuse to admit the evidence.

The judge ruled that the audio will be “admitted over the objection of the mother,” indicating plans to “listen to the recoding after the conclusion of these proceedings.”

The judge clarified: “I will be listening to them outside of the record.”

The significance here, beyond the judge hearing it, is that Andrew’s attorney will be able to ask questions pertaining to the recording’s contents.

In turn, Amber’s legal team will be able to bring up the audio recording as well.

This matters because evidence must be admitted by the court in order for it to be fair game.

One cannot have one or both sides of a legal struggle constantly referring to something — a book, a recording, a piece of art — if the court has no frame of reference.

Assuming that Andrew’s description of the audio recording is accurate … this sounds very bad for Amber, and is a reminder that the attack before her July 2019 arrest was not an isolated incident.

Amber Portwood Completes Probation: That’s the LAST Time I Attack a Baby Daddy!

Teen Mom viewers are keenly aware of how troubled Amber Portwood’s history have been.

But even Gary Shirley has praised Amber’s transformation, noting that she’s a better person now than she was even a couple of years ago.

It looks like the courts agree.

Amber has successfully completed her probation following her 2019 attack on Andrew Glennon. Let’s hope that it sticks.

The Sun reports that Amber Portwood wrapped up her 906 days of probation last week.

The Teen Mom OG star has now been discharged by the court of Marion County, Indiana.

She was sentenced to probation in October of 2019, just three months after her domestic violence arrest.

Of course, considering the horror show that led to that arrest in July, Amber’s sentence involved more than simply waiting out the clock.

She had to fulfill the other terms of her sentence, which of course included completing substance abuse and mental health evaluations.

Amber also had to pay a $1,285 fine.

Amber has had to undergo random urine and breath examinations at least once a month since her October sentencing.

According to court records, she has obliged, submitting 21 negative drug tests without missing a single scheduled test or testing positive even once.

That doesn’t just mean no use of illegal drugs, but also no alcohol whatsoever.

There was more, and in some ways, this may have been the most important part of what was required.

Amber was instructed by the court to complete parenting classes and a Batterers’ Intervention Program.

Court records show that Amber complied — but that’s not all.

Amber actually reflected upon her experiences in the Batterers’ Intervention Program in her recent book, So, You’re Crazy Too?

“One program that has really helped me has been the Batterers’ Intervention Program,” she wrote in her book.

“Maybe it was the timing of it all,” Amber speculated.

“I was finally ready to accept responsibility for my actions,” Amber wrote, “and learn ways to keep the actions from happening again.”

She continued: “Whatever the reason, I learned a lot from this program.”

Amber explained: “They teach you the power of holding back and the value of walking away from conflict.”

Honestly, that part — the beginning — sounds like a generic I’ve learned my lesson line of dubious sincerity.

Then, however, it gets more personal.

Amber talks about her upbringing led her down a path to become an abuser herself.

“Where I grew up, it was a sign of weakness to walk away from conflict,” Amber explained.

She affirmed: “This program taught me that walking away from a potentially explosive situation is actually a sign of great inner strength.”

While no background or personal history could ever excuse abuse, it can explain behaviors and help people process their motivations and choose a better way.

It wasn’t just what she learned in the program, but her attitude going into it, that helped Amber to make changes.

“I was determined to fulfill my probation and eager to take anything I could get out of the classes I was mandated to attend,” she reflected in her book.

“I started to learn other ways of coping with fear and danger and intimidation through this program,” Amber added.

“Although I know this is a lifelong battle,” Amber acknowledged, “I am hopeful my days of mug shots and court appearances are behind me for good.”

We certainly hope so, too.

Nothing can make Amber’s past misdeeds go away, but she — and only she — has the power to make sure that history does not repeat itself.

Additionally, court records show that Amber did not violate the no-contact order that was in place to protect Andrew Glennon.

That order has now ended.

For a long time, now, Amber and Andrew’s direct contact has been exclusively about their son, James.

Amber’s charge of Domestic Battery has now been dismissed. (Hopefully, it will be her last)

Instead, the charge on her permanent record is an Alternative Misdemeanor Sentencing — a Level 6 Felony.

Long story short, it looks less bad in the long run when people do criminal background checks.

Amber Portwood Flaunts Platinum Blonde Curls: Just Loving on Myself!

Recently, Amber Portwood was in court facing off against her ex, Andrew Glennon.

Almost three years after she attacked him in their home, he is seeking to move to another state, but Amber doesn’t want James that far away from her.

On social media, however, Amber is projecting a positive, confident image radiating self-love.

Also, a platinum blonde one.

Amber Portwood uploaded this image to Instagram, flaunting carefully styled platinum locks of wavy hair.

“Platinum blondes have more fun,” she quipped in the caption.

“No, I didn’t dye my hair, just loving on myself,” Amber clarified. “What are your plans for today?”

So Amber isn’t sporting new hair anywhere but Instagram, making this a throwback pic, not an update.

Come to think of it, we do remember when Amber sported platinum blonde locks before.

(We might have said “just a few years ago,” but these examples that we have included are from more than half a decade ago)

Obviously, everyone has the right to dye their hair however they like.

Even so, not everyone can “pull off” a dramatic change in hair color.

Amber, however, absolutely kills it as a blonde, as we observed in years past.

Amber often adopts very casual looks, presenting herself like a “real” person, with glamour shots being less common.

We are all accustomed to seing her wearing her glasses, with her natural brown hair pulled back.

As a result, it is easy to forget that Amber isn’t just a beautiful woman, but an absolute bombshell wehn she wants to be.

Of course, forgetting Amber’s ability to stun people with jaw-dropping selfies isn’t just because we’re accustomed to seeing her dressed down.

It may have more to do with her behavioral history.

Whether she likes it or not, the world has not forgotten her domestic assaults — not against Gary Shirley, and not against Andrew Glennon.

Amber’s attack on Gary was filmed by MTV, with production seemingly thinking nothing of it and airing the footage of the crime like any other disagreement.

Fortunately, law enforcement took things more seriously.

For many years, Amber appeared to have better behavior … until July of 2019, when she attacked Andrew and faced new charges.

It is because of that attack that she now finds herself battling in court to keep her youngest child, James, living near her.

Andrew is not from Indiana; he only moved there for Amber.

Obviously, when he did that, he had no idea that he would end up having first-hand knowledge of what machete marks look like on a door.

Everyone understands that Amber wants to continue to see James regularly, and everyone understands why.

Similarly, everyone can understand why Andrew would like to leave Amber and Indiana behind and take his son with him to a new home.

It is up to the court to decide what is best for James, under the guidance of laws that do not always prioritize children as much as one would think. It’s a complicated matter.

Gary Shirley Praises Amber Portwood in Court: She’s Not Dangerous Anymore!

Recently, there was a new twist in Amber Portwood’s ongoing legal battle with Andrew Glennon.

Andrew wants to move himself and his son across the country to his home state.

Amber is fighting to stop this from happening.

Now, her other baby daddy, Gary Shirley, is testifying in court — and despite their volatile past, he insists that she has changed.

As we previously reported, Andrew Glennon wants to move to California.

The 37-year-old father wants to bring his 3-year-old son, who resides with him, along when he moves.

Amber Portwood lives in Indiana and wishes to remain there, and called Gary to the stand to try to convince the court to forbid the move.

“Amber is a different person now than she was with me,” Gary testified in court, according to The Sun.

“And,” he claimed, “she is a different person than she was even a year and a half ago.”

We are rapidly approaching the three-year anniversary of when Amber attacked Andrew in their home while he held James, so one would hope so.

“I do notice more positive things,” Gary insisted. “Actually, I am very proud of her.”

Gary described: “It’s a great responsibility that she has.”

Sounding almost on the verge of tears, Gary commented: “It’s a different bond with James than she had with Leah.”

“Because when Leah was that age, she was in prison,” Gary recalled.

“And,” he acknowledged diplomatically, “some other things going on with her.”

Gary assessed: “and I think that the person she is today is not the person she was then.”

“I think that was a little hard for Leah,” Gary said, as if to explain why his teenage daughter is not close with Amber.

“That was a hard thing for Leah, seeing how well they get along,” Gary admitted of Amber’s bond with baby James.

Leah was five years old in December of 2013, when Amber was released after serving 17 months in prison.

Gary claimed that Amber makes repeated visits to his home every month, each time with James in tow, to see Leah.

He said that he has observed a positive relationship between his ex and the three-year-old.

“They cuddle, they’ve made cookies, they play with his toys,” Gary described. “In the summer, they go play outside.”

Gary praised James’ behavior.

He also had good things to say about Amber, noting that he had never witnessed her lose her temper with him.

(Of course, while well-behaved children are abused just like other children, we all know that parenting’s real tests don’t happen on good days)

“I’ve never seen her do anything to James that would concern me,” Gary stated.

“There’s nothing but love there,” he described.

Coming from the man whom Amber once scolded, many years ago, for not physically abusing their child, this is dramatic testimony.

Gary also spoke about his awareness of Amber’s diagnoses, describing her mental health as having improved drastically.

“I think a lot of it was she learned how to handle her herself,” Gary described. “I don’t think she was diagnosed properly for a long time.

He added: “I’m assuming there was a lot of trial and error to try to pinpoint the issue and taking the meds correctly.”

Gary also speculated that if James relocated to California with his father, it could severely impact the boy’s relationship with Leah.

That is certainly a ringing endorsement, but then, Gary and Amber are getting along these days. She barely even insults his wife anymore.

But the court will have to consider more than what Gary thinks when it comes to a decision like this.

Amber Portwood: I’ve Boned More Than 40 Guys and Gals! I’m VERY Demanding!

Amber Portwood’s new book is filled with a lot of details about the Teen Mom star’s life.

Not everything gets filmed by MTV. A lot of Are You Crazy, Too? has hair-raising stories from Amber’s past.

Viewers may think that she practically lives on her couch, but Amber has made plenty of time for her bedroom, too.

In her memoir, she opens up about her sexual history, referring to having had more than 40 sexual partners.

Amber didn’t just cover the simple stats of how many men and women she has slept with over the years.

She also spoke about how much sex she likes, when she wants it, and what really drives her wild.

Fans will of course remember when Amber came out as bisexual last year. Obviously, her book discusses the women who have shared her bed.

“I have had sex in my short 30 years of life with over 40 men and some women,” Amber wrote.

There is some ambiguity to that sentence, but strictly speaking, she’s saying that she has slept with at least 41 men and at least 2 women.

Either of those numbers could potentially be considerably higher, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are.

Truth be told, many would be surprised to know how far above average that is.

Did you know that the average person has only had 7 or 8 sexual partners in their lifetime?

Before you ask, yes, that statistic includes Millennials.

We can of course remember that, for every sexual superstar whose body count is in the triple digits, there are people with zero to two partners bringing down the average.

That is okay! Sex is a personal decision, not a grade on a test or a competition.

Honestly, Amber’s sexual history (numerically speaking) sounds very reasonable, and also not surprising for a beautiful reality star.

Amber also shared that, frankly, not everyone can keep up with her long enough to stick around.

“When I am in a committed relationship,” she divulged, “I like to have sex four or five times a day.”

Before some wonder if that’s a realistic ask, we should remember that there are many types of sex, and not all of them have to involve a penis or Olympian stamina.

“I am certain, of course, that this is part of a mental disorder,” Amber said, likely referring to her bipolar disorder diagnosis.

One of the classic symptoms of a manic episode is a significantly increased sex drive.

“But sometimes I think sex is just a healthy part of life,” she said accurately.

“And my love of sex is an attribute, not something to be cured,” Amber expressed.

She is once again absolutely right.

Someone not wanting sex at all is not a disease. Neither is wanting it all of the time. Sexual desire, like so many things, is on a spectrum.

Amber noted something that countless people in the mentally ill community have observed: being medicated has drawbacks.

“Low sex drive is a side effect of antidepressants,” she noted.

“I still really enjoy sex, of course,” Amber affirmed, “but it takes more work now to get me going.”

“I am pretty sure this side effect of my medication is the Universe’s way of slowing me down,” Amber joked in her book.

We would like to think that the universe does not, in any sense, have a vested interest in killing anyone’s sex drive.

There are a lot of problems in the world. Horniness is simply not one of them.

Amber noted that sex isn’t just fun — it has actually improved her life dramatically, in the long term.

“My love of sex landed me on a show about teen pregnancy that pays my bills to this day,” she pointed out.

“So,” Amber reasoned, “it’s hard to think of my desire for a lot of sex is a dirty secret to be kept locked up and not discussed.”

To be clear, we think (we hope) that this is an endorsement of healthy human sexual expression.

Not a recommendation that others become parents as teenagers in order to follow in their footsteps.

In case there was any doubt, becoming a parent when you are in high school is not a healthy expression of sexuality.

“But clearly I needed to learn — and I am still learning,” Amber continued.

She is learning “that it is possible to have too much of a good thing.”

Amber added that this is true of “(even a great thing like sex).”

Amber touched on (pun not intended) Dimitri Garcia, whom she “dated” when he would make trips from Belgium to see her.

According to her, she rocked his whole world in terms of her sexual desires and creativity.

“I like to call my Belgian lover ‘Pretty Dick’ for obvious reasons,” she wrote. Well, good for him.

“He calls me ‘Baby Love.’ I think I introduced him to a whole new world, sexually speaking…” Amber noted.

In addition to some extremely explicit details, Amber also shared that she introduced Dimitri to love biting … something that most people discover on their own.

We hope that Amber’s honest discussion of her sexual history will inspire others to love themselves a bit more. Sexual stigma is brainrot.
