According to a new report by RadarOnline, Amber, 21, is getting ready to check out of the Seasons Recovery Center to start a new life with a clean slate.
“After she settles in, she is going to head to the area her brother lives in in Tennessee,” a source close to Amber reveals. “She wants to check out houses in the area as she is considering leaving Indiana.”
It was reported weeks ago that Amber is seriously contemplating leaving her hometown of Anderson, Indiana in other to get away from negative influences in her life, which her brother claims includes her baby daddy Gary Shirley, 25. Amber checked into the expensive facility on June 24 just days after she reportedly tried to hang herself, while also taking some pills.
Meanwhile, a fresh start and a rehab stint might not be enough for Amber to regain custody of her 2-year-old daughter Leah.
Gary’s lawyer, Jeff Lockwood, tells Star magazine that it’s highly unlikely the troubled Amber will regain custody of Leah, adding that Gary’s temporary custody arrangement will be made permanent.
“I think custody will go to Gary,” his attorney explains to Star, adding that in other for Amber to regain custody, she would need to be “able to maintain a clean track record.” Something neither Lockwood or Gary think she will be able to do.
In addition to the recent suicide attempt, Amber is still in hot water with Child Protective Services for physical abuse after she attacked Gary on the MTV hit show.
“We will aim for her to have a whole lot of visitation,” said Jeff, hinting that Amber might even move in with Gary to allow her to be a full time mom. “Gary and Amber do have a relationship and a child,” he added. “Who knows, they may even move in together.”
