Amber Portwood In Jail


Amber Portwood continues to remain in Indiana’s Madison County Jail after spending the holidays there, but things are not going well for the reality star who is now on suicide watch.

Amber is expected to stay behind bars until January 27th after she was locked up for probation violations and being found with over 40 pills for a controlled substance. According to sources, Amber, who testified last week that she felt “exploited” by appearing on Teen Mom and wants off the show, is being brutally harassed while incarcerated for her appearance on the reality show!

MailOnline is reporting that the 21-year-old Amber is having a horrible experience behind bars — which is the idea since it’s, you know, a punishment. “She’s barely eaten or had any sleep in over a week and she’s constantly being harassed in jail because of Teen Mom,” an insider reports.

“Amber thought because she was a celebrity she’d get out of jail within a few hours like Lindsay Lohan, but she definitely had a wake up call and hasn’t stopped crying since being locked up.” Unfortunately, Circuit Court Judge David Happe decided Amber should stay in the facility until her next hearing.

Faced with a month in jail (and possibly more) Amber has become more “depressed and alone” than ever after being constantly made fun of by other inmates. “She has barely eaten or slept in a full week after one girl purposely knocked over her food tray and another inmate threw toilet water in her face while she was trying to sleep.”

“Amber has already been moved twice from two other cell blocks because all the inmates were threatening her and she was scared she’d get beat up,” the insider continues. Because of the pressures she is now facing behind bars, “Amber recently told the guard if she was sent to prison she would kill herself which put the Teen Mom on temporary suicide watch.”

Adding to her volatile situation an insider reports that the “really depressed” Amber is without her psych meds because the jail allegedly “won’t give her any prescription medication for her anxiety.” Even worse for poor Amber she had no visitors on Christmas Day since she is only allowed visitors on Saturdays and Christmas fell on Sunday this year. Her mother Tonya has been her only visitor since her stay and she has not seen her daughter.

Amber reportedly called her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley, but the conversation did not go well. “Amber called Gary and Leah on Christmas morning and had a meltdown on the phone after hearing Gary’s new girlfriend was spending the holiday with her daughter,” the insider revealed. “She cursed out Gary saying it was his fault she was in jail, but Gary told Amber she got what she deserved and hung up on her.”

“Amber feels threatened that she is being replaced as Leah’s mom and she didn’t even have a chance to buy her daughter Christmas gifts before going to jail.”

“Gary thinks Amber being in jail for a long period of time is a good thing for her, he thinks she needs to finally learn her lesson and suffer the consequences.” Amber’s mother does not agree — she believes leaving reality TV behind is the right choice for Amber and that to get her life back on track she needs to leave the show. She is working vehemently to get Amber released from her MTV contract!

“Amber’s mom [Tonya] said the only way she’ll help her get out is if she quits the show so they’re currently negotiating with MTV trying to get her out of her contract,” the insider adds. “I really think this is the final straw for Amber, she’s quitting Teen Mom for good.” A photo of Amber and Tonya leaving court is below.

DOES AMBER DESERVE TO SERVE TIME? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL LEAVE THE SHOW?

While I hope that all RT readers are enjoying a wonderful holiday, Teen Mom alum Amber Portwood spent her Christmas behind bars. It’s much sadder and not nearly as hilarious as these posts should be.

After facing multiple violations, the young mother found herself in jail due to her failure to comply with the terms of her probation. On December 19, Amber was charged with possession as well as reportedly refusing to adhere to a mandatory urine sample.

TMZ.com is reporting that probation officers visited Amber on December 16 for failing to keep a court mandated appointment. An affidavit provided by Anderson, Indiana policeman Sgt. John Branson reveals that Amber was found in a “very groggy” state. Branson continues that officers found a bottle of mixed controlled substance pills for which Amber could not provide prescriptions. Amber cited that “her housekeeper throws all that kind of stuff away.” She’s got a housekeeper?

According to the site, officers discovered “32 Hydrocodone pills, 6 Soma pills, 2 of another muscle relaxer, 3 of a different kind of Hyrdocodone, and then 1 pill they were unable to identify.” Amber remains in custody until her hearing on January 13. MTV, please stop celebritizing these girls’ lives. God knows she’d probably be in a very similar situation if she’d never darkened the door of the network’s season-wide public service announcement… but at least she wouldn’t have banked full of extra funds with which to ruin her life, as well as the life of her precious toddler.

Of course, while you and yours were chowing down on turkey, dressing and (in my case) killer lasagna, TMZ has obtained Amber’s Christmas slammer menu. The website reveals that while we were enjoying bounties of deliciousness with family and friends, poor Amber and her fellow inmates were feasting on “turkey sausage pizza” (which was described as ‘a meat-like substance on top of the pizza’), a side of carrots (cold, not steamed), peas and some pineapple.”

Wow and wow. While I’d like to funny (and I do firmly believe that pineapple was a missing and necessary staple of my Christmas smorgasbord), it hurts my heart that anyone, including the awful Amber – who needs to serve her time and change her life — isn’t getting the precious time with loved ones I’ve been allotted. #blessings

Here’s hoping you and yours are reveling in this wonderful time, burying the hatchet and savoring your time with those you hold most dear!

More bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood.

As she currently sits in jail following her arrest yesterday for domestic violence (she was put on a 24-hour hold meaning she has to spend at least 24 hours in jail), RadarOnline is now reporting that Amber has been issued a ‘no contact’ order prohibiting her from being with her 2-year-old daughter Leah.

Amber was criminally charged yesterday with two felony counts of domestic battery and one count of neglect of a dependent. The ‘no contact’ order is due to the neglect charges.

According to Radar, Leah’s father and Amber’s ex Gary Shirley is expected to take care of Leah during this time. Amber was reportedly devastated after being arrested and finding out she was no longer allowed contact with Leah. “She’s scared. But her thoughts were with Leah and she knew Leah was going to be taken care of,” says a source.

As for Gary, he is also reported to be very upset and did not want Amber arrested or prosecuted for hitting him. “He wants her out of jail so he can have his family back. He knows she feels bad about everything that has happened,” adds a source.

No word on when the ‘no contact’ order against Amber will be lifted. Amber is expected to be released today as she only has to post 10% of her $5,000 bail.

UPDATE -  TMZ is reporting Amber has posted bail and has been released.  She has pled not guilty to all the charges. Below is a picture of Amber walking out of a jail with a woman who appears to be her mother according to TMZ.

It was only a matter of time. TMZ is now reporting that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was arrested today on domestic violence charges and is currently in jail.

If you recall, Amber was charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery back in mid November. According to TMZ, the arrest warrant was officially issued today by her local police department for those charges.

According to the cops, the charges stem from Amber attacking ex-fiance Gary Shirley on three separate occasions between August 2009 and July 2010. Some of the violence was captured on video and shown on the MTV hit show Teen Mom.

Amber was reportedly booked at 4:21 PM EST and has been placed on a “24-hour hold.” Her bail has been at $5,000. Amber faces three years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines if convicted on all charges.

It is also likely that Gary will be awarded temporary custody of their daughter Leah due to this arrest.
