Amber Portwood

Even more bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood.

Exactly a week after she was officially charged with with two felony counts of domestic battery and one misdemeanor stemming from her violent attacks on ex-fiance Gary Shirley, RadarOnline is now reporting that Amber & Gary’s baby “Leah is a ward of the state.”

The ruling came after Amber, 20, and Gary, 24, were summoned to appear in an Anderson, Indiana courtroom on Tuesday afternoon for an emergency child placement hearing concerning their two-year-old.

So what exactly does a ward of the state mean? According to Radar, this means the Department of Child Services is now officially assessing Leah’s living situation. A ward of the state is an adult or child whose guardianship is determined by a judge who appoints a government agency to oversee the ward of the state’s affairs.

The good news for Amber & Gary is that though Leah is a ward of the state, she is still allowed to live with Gary. As reported days ago, Leah has handed over custody of Leah to Gary for the time being.

Radar adds that Amber visited Leah at Gary’s apartment following the court hearing and the Indiana Department of Child Services supervised the visit.

As for what happens next, the DCS will continue to monitor Amber’s progress and also determine if Gary’s home is suitable for Leah to remain in permanently. DCS has also placed a six-month monitoring period on Amber.

It seems Teen Mom star Amber Portwood isn’t waiting to lose custody of her 2-year-old daughter as a new report by Life & Style magazine states Amber has handed over custody of Leah to her ex-fiance.

According to the report, Amber, 20, is now allowing daughter Leah, who recently turned 2, to stay with her father Gary Shirley. The reason? Amber is feeling too overwhelmed to handle day-to-day care of Leah especially now that she has been officially charged with two felony counts of domestic battery and one misdemeanor stemming from her violent attacks on Gary.

She is facing up to 3 years in jail plus a $10,000 fine.

The mag however adds that Amber continues to self destruct with her out of control behavior. “Amber’s not in any rush to get Leah back,” an insider close to her reveals. “Amber’s dating all these guys, she has all this fame, she has all this attention. That’s what she wants. She wants to party. She’s not a very good mother right now.”

A second insider adds that her appearance on MTV’s Teen Mom in addition to the popularity the show has received, might be to blame for the path her life has taken. “If she had said no to the show, none of this would be happening.”

And finally, the HollywoodLife is reporting today that both Amber and Gary have suspended licenses. According to the HollywoodLlife, Amber’s license is suspended until she pays a $150 fine. While a source close to Gary tells RadarOnline “he had a ticket for a seatbelt violation and then he was pulled over and the police told him he had a suspended license.”

Poor poor baby Leah.

We reported two days ago that Indiana cops have officially charged Amber Portwood, star of Teen Mom, with domestic violence and battery.

The exact charges for the 20-year-old MTV reality star includes two felony counts and one misdemeanor. The cops reveal the reason for the serious felony charges is because Amber’s daughter Leah was present during two of the domestic violence incidents against her ex-fiance Gary Shirley.

Well the HollywoodLife is now reporting that they spoke to Amber just hours following the news that she was being charged, and get this, she is completely denying the felony charges. Why? According to Amber, she “didn’t hit Gary in front of Leah so there are no felony charges.” It seems someone failed to inform Amber that MTV handed the cops a ton of unedited footage of she and Gary following a subpoena. The cops have stated that the uncut footage proves baby Leah was indeed present during two abuse incidents.

Amber added, “None of this is true, there’s nothing against me. They can’t charge me if they don’t have proof.” The HollywoodLife also adds that if Amber is arrested, which she likely will be, Gary would be the next in line to get custody of their daughter.

If convicted, Amber faces three years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines!

And even more bad news for Amber. Just days after photos of her doing some good ol underage drinking hit the web, TMZ has also obtained and posted a video on their site which clearly shows Amber inebriated. In the video, Amber can be seen singing off key while also saying to the camera, “I’m drunk” then moments later saying, “Possibly drunk.” That footage is below -

It was only a matter of time. The HollywoodLife is reporting today that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has now been officially charged with domestic violence.

According to the HollywoodLife, Amber, 20, was officially charged Nov. 18 with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery. The serious charges are a result of an Indiana law which states that an incident of domestic violence is considered a felony if a child is present for the abuse, and according to the cops, baby Leah was present in two cases.

This doesn’t come as a surprise as we reported just a week ago that the Anderson, Ind. cops had subpoenaed MTV for the unedited footage of the fights involving Amber and her ex-fiance Gary Shirley. Apparently, the uncut footage was even worse than what was shown on TV. According to the cops, the uncut footage clearly showed baby Leah was present for two of their biggest abuse incidents.

The police documents show that Amber choked, slapped, punched and kicked Gary, 24, in their home. A warrent will reportedly be issued soon for Amber. If convicted, she faces up to three years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.

And the bad news doesn’t end there for Amber. The latest issue of Life & Style magazine shows photos of the 20-year-old engaging in some underage drinking.

The photos show Amber with a bottle of vodka, while she reportedly told partygoers that she was also taking prescription pills suspected to be Klonopin. “She said she needs to watch how much she drinks because she’s on something,” said a source.

More bad news for Teen Mom star Amber Portwood.

TMZ is reporting the Anderson, Indiana Police Department is now reviewing the unedited footage of the Teen Mom episode which showed Amber hitting and kicking her ex-fiance Gary Shirley multiple times.

MTV turned the tapes over to the cops on Tuesday after receiving a subpoena for any evidence of domestic violence from the police department.

As previously reported, Amber could face felony domestic violence charges if it’s determined daughter Leah witnessed the altercation.

In other Amber news, RadarOnline has now obtained the audio of the 911 call Amber made to cops following her recent domestic dispute with Gary which took place in the early morning hours of October 20.

The transcript reveals that Amber, 20, told 911 operators that Gary, 23, pushed her out of their home while she was in her underwear and she even tells the 911 operator about her current investigation for domestic violence.

She said, “I’m Amber Portland. There is actually an investigation on me for battery from about six months ago because I’m the Amber Portland on Teen Moms but I need someone out here because he pushed me outside in my underwear and I don’t know what’s going on to be honest with you.”

According to Radar, the police report from that night reveals that Gary wasn’t arrested because the responding officer “saw no redness on her left arm where she advised Gary grabbed her”.

A new report by Life & Style magazine is now blowing the lid off just how much MTV is paying its Teen Mom stars.

The reality show, which has now become a mega hit for the network, averaged millions of viewers per episode for it’s second season. A series insider tells Life & Style magazine exclusively that the “stars earn $60,000 to $65,000 per season.” Not too shabby for some teens who’s claim to fame was getting knocked up, though their Jersey Shore counterparts did earn over $300,000 each for their upcoming 3rd season.

And while the Teen Mom stars are earning way more than most of their peers, it seems Amber Portwood and on and off again boyfriend Gary Shirley are not good savers. Gary’s best friend, Jordan Sanchez, tells Life & Style that “Gary says he’s broke.” Adding that “the money is the only reason he’s willing to do the show. You can’t walk away from money like that.”

As we have reported, MTV has already began filming the third season of the hit show.

In other Teen Mom news, Maci Bookout is now shutting down the reports that she is getting her own spin-off show with fellow teen mom Bristol Palin. Maci tells the HollywoodLife blog that the story is false and that the two have no plans for a reality show in the future.

As for the status of her relationship with boyfriend Kyle King, she says, “It’s not getting more serious. We are just chilling out, trying not to rush anything and just enjoying our time together.”

According to a new report, Teen Mom couple Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley are on the outs once again.

The latest issue of Life & Style magazine reports that Gary has moved out of the couple’s Anderson, Indiana apartment and that Leah, his daughter with Amber, is now with him most of the time. This follows a new police report that came out last week stating that Amber threatened to attack Gary yet again.

“Gary loves Amber, but he wants custody of Leah,” Jordan Sanchez, Gary’s best friend since he was 14, tells Life & Style, adding that Gary has already moved out of the apartment he and Amber used to share. Says Jordan, ” Leah is with Gary almost all the time.”

And when it comes to Amber’s mental state, Jordan states that she has been experiencing serious anxiety and is on some strong medication. Jordan also reveals that Gary thinks Amber might be bipolar. “It’s gotten pretty bad. Gary told me that there have been several instances where Amber would say to him, ‘Come home or I’m gonna kill myself,’ and he’d fall right into her trap,” adds Jordan.

In other Teen Mom news, Ok magazine via the HollywoodLife is reporting that Maci Bookout is planning to move to California with her son Bentley. Why you might ask? Well according to the mag, Maci wants to move to LA to film a spin-off show with fellow Teen Mom/Teen Activist Bristol Palin. And we can’t make this up folks!

“Maci is 100 percent confirmed to do her own spin-off,” says a source. “Right now it’s in the early stages.” The mag adds that Maci, 19, was spotted looking at “affordable” houses in West Hollywood with her boyfriend Kyle King. And though insiders insist the story is true, an MTV rep is denying it to OK, “Maci is not considering moving to L.A..”

And the cycle continues.  While millions of viewers watched a seemingly remorseful Amber Portwood shed tears on the emotional Teen Mom reunion special with Dr. Drew Pinsky, the 20-year-old reality star was back to her old ways the same exact night.

A shocking new report by NBC reveals the Teen Mom star and her boyfriend Gary Shirley were involved in yet another domestic dispute just days ago.

According to NBC, cops were called to the couple’s home on Tuesday night. The reason? It all reportedly began when Gary pushed Amber, who came out of their home in her underwear, out the door for threatening to attack him yet again. As for the reason for Amber’s outburst this go around, it was reportedly over a text message sent to Gary, which Amber suspected was from another girl.

There is no word on whether or not their daughter Leah was present for this latest shameful display.
