It appears that whole minor being locked up in jail thingy and not being able to see her child is having a major impact on Amber Portwood.
The Teen Mom star, who remains in jail since being locked up two weeks ago for violating her probation, made some startling revelations during a recent court appearance.
The Herald Bulletin reports that during her court hearing last week an Indiana judge ruled that Amber, 21, remain in jail during the holidays until her hearing in January.
In addition to violating her probation by failing to submit to drug tests, not getting her GED or completing anger management classes, Amber is also accused of new charges — committing battery (stemming from a recent restaurant fight) and possession of a controlled substance (cops found her with over 40 pills without a prescription).
Amber testified that upon leaving a Malibu rehab facility this summer, she saw a medical doctor for back pain and other issues. The doctor prescribed hydrocodone which she admitted she began to abuse. According to Amber, the medication contributed to the probation violations and new offenses.
Amber then made a shocking revelation when she testified that she felt pressured and exploited through her work with MTV. “I want to quit, and I will,” she said of her participation on the hit — Teen Mom.
Her attorney, Evan Broderick, added that his client longs to return to a normal life. Interesting though I’m not certain quitting the show will help with most of the issues she is facing. Amber, who attempted suicide back in June, has revealed she is still suicidal and has been diagnosed with extreme bipolar disorder.
