Amber Portwood: Going to Prison After Violating Probation with Threats?!

Amber Portwood does not do a great job at obeying the law.

It’s sort of why she’s a convicted felon.

In the past, she’s been in trouble for domestic violence, domestic violence in front of a kid, drug stuff, assault … really just a lot of really bad stuff

More recently, of course, she got into some domestic violence again.

Because of that, she’s on probation right now, which means that she has to be on her best behavior or she could potentially go to jail.

And we all know that Amber’s best behavior isn’t all that good …

1. Yeah …

Amber portwood cries
So Amber has proven herself to be a pretty violent person, right?

2. Such a History

Who could forget those times that she assaulted then-boyfriend Gary Shirley right there on Teen Mom?

3. Convictions

Amber portwood crying
The domestic violence was part of why she went to prison several years ago — she was convicted of three counts of domestic violence, got probation, then violated it by getting caught with drugs after getting into a fight with someone else.

4. A Changed Woman?

After she was released from prison in 2013, she convinced many Teen Mom fans that she’d changed.

5. Yay?

Like, we never saw her assault Matt Baier on the show, which was admittedly a step in the right direction.

6. However …

Although she did swing at Farrah Abraham during a Teen Mom reunion a couple of years ago, so it was clear she still had some fight left in her.

Amber Portwood: Everyone is Lying About Me! I am SUCH a Victim!

Amber Portwood has never been great, you know?

Like it’s been nearly ten years since the first time she was arrested for domestic violence, and she’s currently on probation for doing it again.

It’s bad. It’s all bad. Really, really bad.

In addition to the domestic violence, Amber also has a bad habit of staying on Instagram Live for hours going off about any old thing.

That’s what she did today, and man live, some (or pretty much all) of the things she said in real time were really just unbearable.

Unfortunately for us, we listened to every last word of it. This was a time in our lives we will never get back. But for you all at home?

We’ve got the crazy rundown for you. And it is crazy.

1. The Beginning

Amber portwood winces
Amber Portwood has messed up a lot in her life. This is not news to longtime card-carrying members of Teen Mom Nation. But she really, really screwed herself over on the night of the Fourth of July, Two Thousand Nineteen.

2. Amber, Amber, Amber …

Amber portwood plastic surgery photo
You’ve heard the story, and you may have heard the audio which was leaked more recently, but the long and short of it is this: Basically, Amber went off on the father of her son James, Andrew Glennon, because they weren’t able to see some fireworks, and she went off HARD.

3. Man Oh Man

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
Andrew has said that she beat him with a shoe, and that later she threatened to kill herself and then chased him with a machete, all while he was holding their one-year-old son.

4. The Arrest

He sent a text to 911, police arrived and arrested her, and then the next phase of his mess began: the court battle.

5. Good for Him

He even started opening up about what his relationship with Amber had been like … and it wasn’t pretty.

Amber Portwood Accused of Threatening YouTuber Who Reported on Andrew Glennon Abuse: I Know Where You Live!

As you’re probably aware, Amber Portwood was arrested back in July after she assaulted her then-boyfriend Amdrew Glennon.

Portwood is now on probaton, and she’s been to jail before, so she knows exactly what’s at stake.

Not only that, Amber will soon fight for custody of her son in court, and the odds are very much against her.

In other words, he woman has every reason in the world to keep her nose clean and control her emotions.

But is she doing that?

Of course not. In fact, she’s been accused of doing the exact opposite — threatening a YouTuber who’s been reporting on her legal entanglements.

Here’s what we currently know about this bizarre situation:

1. Back On Her BS

Andrew Glennon: I Was Told NOT to Report Amber’s Abuse Because I’m a Man!

Domestic violence takes many forms.

Its victims come in all shapes and sizes, and they belong to every demographic under the sun.

The fact remains, however, that most victims of spousal abuse are women, and so, men who have been assaulted by a female partner might be reluctant to report the crime due to the common belief that only women can be victims of violence in the home.

The nightmare scenario for a man who’s been abused by a former partner is that he’ll be laughed out of court for the simple fact that he’s physically capable of defending himself against his smaller ex.

And according to Andrew Glennon, that’s basically what happened to him when he reported that he had been abused by Amber Portwood.

Take a look at the latest development in this increasingly bizarre saga:

1. The Downward Spiral

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested on domestic assault charges after allegedly attacking Andrew Glennon in the former couple’s Indiana home.

2. A Short Fuse

3. Another Mugshot

4. The Proof

5. Case Closed?

6. Getting Away With It

Amber Portwood: Video of Andrew Glennon Machete Attack Revealed [UPDATED]

On July 4, Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking her then-fiance, Andrew Glennon, with a machete.

Amber has accepted a plea deal in order to avoid jail time, but she still denies that there was any sort of weapon involved in the attack.

Now, however, YouTuber Katie Joy claims to have uncovered evidence that contradicts Portwood’s claim.

Throughout the ordeal, Joy has presented evidence of Amber’s abuse that swayed the opinions of many fans – though it’s worth noting that some of her claims have been called into question, and she has admitted that some of her content later proved to be inaccurate.

With that knowledge, we’ll leave it to you to determine what’s going on here and just how egregious Amber’s attack was.

Take a look:

[Update: We’ve included new footage of Amber’s alleged attack against Andrew. Trauma and abuse survivors should be warned it may have a triggering effect.]

1. Better Days

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
Amber and Andrew’s romance was a whirlwind affair. She was engaged to someone else when they met on the set of Marriage Boot Camp. Two years later she had welcomed a child with Glennon, and the couple was planning a wedding.

2. A History of Violence

Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before Amber was repeating the behaviors that had doomed her previous relationships.

3. Another Mugshot

4. Andrew’s Version

5. Providing Protection

Andrew Glennon: There’s No WAY I’m Quitting Teen Mom! I Need the Money!

Like so many violent psychopaths, Amber Portwood is deeply paranoid.

And one of the things she’s most paranoid about is money.

For some reason, the volatile Teen Mom OG star always thinks the men in her life are after her fortune, or that they only got involved with her so that they can become famous themselves.

But Andrew Glennon, the father of her son James, she was supposed to be be different. Unlike with bottom-feeders like Matt Baier, she could breathe easy and not concern herself with such matters.

Or so we thought. After all, Glennon comes from money, and he already had a good job as a television producer when he met Amber (when she was filming Marriage Boot Camp with Baier).

But life is complicated – especially when Amber is involved – and now, it looks like Andrew won’t be walking away from the Teen Mom franchise simply because his relationship with Amber is over.

Take a look:

1. Single Dad

Andrew glennon beams at baby james
When Andrew met Amber, he was a single guy living in Los Angeles and making good money as a producer on shows like Marriage Boot Camp.

2. The Bad Old Days

Amber portwood and fiance matt baier
At the time, Amber was still engaged to Matt Baier – a Teen Mom superfan with a history of drug addiction and between 7-9 kids from previous relationships who slid into her DMs. Like all of her romantic entanglements, it was a dysfunctional mess.

3. Mamber Alert

Matt baier and amber photo
Matt and Amber appeared on Marriage Boot Camp during her and Andrew’s time as a producer. Baier fled during filming, and that’s when Amber got involved with Andrew.

4. Moving Fast

Andrew glennon with amber
Within months, Andrew was living with Amber in her home state Indiana. And it wasn’t long before the couple took another major step together.

5. Sweet Baby James

James glennon
In May of 2018, Amber and Andrew welcomed a child together – a baby boy named James. For a short period in time, everything was right with the world.

6. Faking It Till She Makes It

There was a brief period when it looked as though Amber had finally found the domestic contentment that eluded her in her earlier relationships – but then it all came crashing down.

Amber Portwood: Andrew Glennon Needs to Be Locked Up!

LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!

When Amber Portwood chants this these days, she is not talking about Donald Trump and his impending impeachment trial, according to new legal paperwork filed on Wednesday, November 6.

Instead, she’s talking about ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

Portwood believes Glennon ought to be held in contempt because he is not abiding by the rules of the former couple’s custody agreement.

In what way? And could this actually happen?

Scroll down for an update on the very troubled Teen Mom…

1. Everyone Knows How We Got Here, Right?

Amber andrew glennon
Amber was arrested on July 5 for allegedly attacking Andrew while he was holding their 18-month old son in his arms, James.

2. She Even Threatened to Kill Herself AND Used a Machete

Amber james and andrew
Allegedly, that is. Andrew has said Portwood swallowed a bunch of pills (and then threw them back up), prior to using a machete to try and break down the bathroom door behind which Andrew and James were hiding.

3. Is She Going to Jail?

Amber on tmog
No. We previously detailed how Amber ageed to a plea deal and will almost definitely avoid jail time for this incident.

4. What About Custody of James, Though?

Amber portwood and son james
That’s the question we’re dealing with now… and we have a bunch of details and updates we can offer to readers.

5. Let’s Start with This:

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
Andrew has primary custody of the toddler. This is understandable and this has been the case ever since Amber was taken into custody.

6. When and How Can Amber See Her Son?

Amber portwood happy in bed
She can only see her son on three non-consecutive “days” per week, with one of those days (likely on the weekend) for 10 hours. The other days’ visits must last for no more than three hours.

Andrew Glennon to Amber Portwood: You’re Not a Real Mom!

After Amber Portwood was arrested back in July for assaulting Andrew Glennon, things have been pretty darn crazy.

There have been court dates, leaked recordings, so many accusation of so many wrongdoings …

It was a little overwhelming for us, so we can’t imagine how intense it was for Amber and Andrew.

But earlier this week, Amber took a plea deal and the case was closed — we already knew that.

What we didn’t know is that Andrew read a statement about his experience with Amber in court … a statement that has been released in its entirety.

So let’s check it out!

1. So Much

Andrew glennon with amber
There’s a whole, whole lot to discuss here, so let’s get the recap out of the way real quick, OK?

2. The Arrest

Amber portwood mugshot 2019
Amber was arrested in the wee hours of the morning on July 5th after chasing Andrew, who was holding baby James, around the house with a machete. She was charged with three felonies, including domestic battery and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

3. Lots of Leaks

Andrew glennon with baby james
It’s taken nearly four months for the case to be settled, and in that time several recordings were leaked that proved Amber emotionally and physically abused Andrew, often in front of James.

4. Denial

Amber portwood plastic surgery photo
At first, Amber denied everything except beating him with a shoe the night she was arrested (which, you know, is still assault). She accused him of cheating on her and made fun of him for texting 911 that night instead of calling or just running away. Eventually she wrote off all her horrible actions by saying it was because of her postpartum depression.

5. Wild

Amber portwood as one of the ogs
On Thursday, she officially accepted a plea deal at her final court hearing. She was sentenced to probation for two and a half years — as part of the probation, she can’t leave the state, she has to take weekly drug tests and be evalutated for mental health issues and substance abuse problems.

6. Questionable

James glennon
Andrew’s no contact order against her still stands, but she’s been granted three unsupervised visits with James every week, which seems odd.

Amber Portwood: I’m Not Going to Prison AND I’m Getting My Son Back!

So hey, you know how Amber Portwood is an awful person who has done awful things?

Of course you remember, and if you don’t, then we’ll get into a recap shortly.

Sometimes being an awful person who does awful things means that you get arrested and have to go to court, and sometimes you can even go to prison.

So will Amber go to prison for her most recent awful act, the assault on Andrew Glennon from back in July?

Let’s talk about it …

1. A Look Back

Amber portwood pre pink hair
It’s been a wild few months for Amber Portwood, huh?

2. Oh, OK

Amber portwood plastic surgery photo
Because she’s the worst, that’s why.

3. The Incident

Amber portwood mugshot 2019
She’s the worst for a lot of reasons, but today we’re mostly going to be talking about that time that she was arrested for assaulting Andrew Glennon back in July because they couldn’t make it to see some ding dang fireworks.

4. So Awful

Amber portwood and son james
According to Andrew’s story, she went off when there was roadwork that kept them from getting to a fireworks display. They went home, Andrew took baby James for a ride, then a few hours later they came back home again, and Amber was STILL MAD.

5. Insanity

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
She beat him with a shoe, threatened to kill herself, took a handful of pills that she regurgitated when Andrew tried to call 911, then ended the night by grabbing a machete and chasing him around the house, all while he was holding the baby.

6. Good

Amber Portwood Agrees to Plea Deal; Will She See Jail Time?

It appears that the embattled Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood has a very good lawyer, very good fortune or maybe a little bit of both.

About three months after the MTV personality was arrested for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend, Portwood has agreed to a plea deal.

Under the terms of that plea arrangement, she will therefore avoid any kind of trial in a case that seemed destined for a doozy of one. 

This has fans across the nation wondering in response:

Will she also avoid any kind of jail time?

Scroll down for the details as we break down what happened, what’s coming next and just how the heck we arrived at this point …

1. Let’s Start with a Refresher

Amber on tmog
For those unaware of the details in this case, Amber Portwood was arrested early on the morning of July 5 after she got into an explosive argument with boyfriend – and baby daddy – Andrew Glennon.

2. What Happened?

Amber james and andrew
Well … a lot. Sources have said Amber blamed Andrew for the family missing a July 4 fireworks show a few hours earlier, and proceeded to absolutely lose her s–t on him as a result.

3. That Feels Like an Overreaction

Amber andrew glennon
Yes, it does. Quite. But Portwood has at least been candid in the past about the trouble she has controlling her temper and emotions, telling fans she has struggled mightily with bipolar disorder and other mental health issues.

4. How Ugly Did It Get?

Amber portwood and son james
VERY. Ugly almost doesn’t do it justice. Glennon has said Amber hurled a shoe at his head, something she has admitted to. But he’s also claimed that he was holding one-year old son James in his arms at the time and barricaded himself in the bathroom with the toddler out of fear for their safety.

5. Did Amber Just Leave Them Alone at That Point?

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
Uhhh, no. We wish that was the worst of it. But she allegedly grabbed a machete, which obviously she had available to her (?!) and used it to try and break the door down, prompting Glennon to text 911 and the authorities to arrive on the scene.

6. That Still Wasn’t Even All, Either

Amber portwood breaks way down
It’s just insane. Andrew has said that the mother of his child then threatened to commit suicide by overdosing on clonazepam, ingesting copious quantities of that prescription medication before soon throwing all these pills back up.

Andrew Glennon: Amber Portwood Gave Me PTSD!

At this point, we all know how awful Amber Portwood is.

Like, she’s been showing it on national television for several years now, it’s not exactly a secret.

But as time goes by, we keep learning more and more about just how bad she could be, particularly to former boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

And this new story is just unforgivable …

1. What a Nightmare

Amber portwood with andrew glennon
Andrew and Amber began dating in August of 2017, and as we all know, it went downhill quick.

2. Wow

Amber portwood plastic surgery photo
She got pregnant pretty much immediately after they got together, so he moved from his hometown of Malibu out to Indiana and nine months later, they welcomed baby James.

3. So Sad

Andrew glennon with amber
And just a few months after that, Andrew has said, the abuse began.

4. Well …

Amber portwood and andrew glennon throwback
The physical abuse, to be clear — from what we saw on the show, she was never super nice to him or anything.

5. Such Unfortunate Circumstances

Amber portwood and son james
Amber suffered from postpartum depression after giving birth to James in May of last year, and things were so bad that she contemplated suicide, so it’s clear she wasn’t in the best place mentally last summer.

6. Sorry

Amber portwood as one of the ogs
But still, that’s no excuse for her actions — Andrew’s claimed that the first time she hit him was that August when she punched him in the face while driving to Leah’s school.

Teen Mom Stars’ Income Revealed: Who’s the Richest of ‘Em All?!

One of the cool things about being on Teen Mom is that you make a lot of money.

Like, a lot.

The moms and the original dads make hundreds of thousands of dollars per season, if you can even believe it, and they also get to travel for free if MTV is filming, which is pretty neat since we’ve been seeing a lot more vacations on the show recently.

But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places.

“Like where?” you may be wondering.

Well, wonder no further …

1. Dang

Teen mom threesome
As we’ve said, the original cast members — the moms and the dads of their first children — all make the same amount, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 to $400,000 a season. But what else does everyone do?

2. Amber Portwood

Amber portwood plastic surgery photo
Let’s start with reviewing Amber’s side hustles — this will be the easiest to do, because she really doesn’t have any.

3. Not Much

Amber portwood on the insta
She shares articles on her Instagram page, which brings in some money, and she did appear on that one season of Marriage Boot Camp a couple of years ago, so that’s something.

4. A Quick Hobby

Amber portwood cant chill
For a little while there, she got into flipping houses with Matt Baier, but she hasn’t done that since he’s been gone.

5. Forever Haute

Amber portwood deals with matt baier
She did have that sketchy clothing company for a little while, Forever Haute, but she hasn’t talked about it in a very long time, and the brand’s Facebook page hasn’t been updated for a year and a half, so it’s probably safe to say that that’s done.

6. Well …

Amber portwood mugshot 2019
Right now, she’s facing years in prison after assaulting Andrew Glennon, so she’s probably not thinking so much about her next business venture, you know?
