Following her arrest last December in addition to a suicide attempt this summer which led to a 2-month rehab stint, the mag is reporting Amber, 21, is drinking and partying more now than before. And the source of the story is none other than Amber’s brother Shawn Portwood.
According to Shawn, Amber is spending more time out partying than she is reconnecting with her 2-year-old daughter Leah. “At least three times a week, Amber will go out to bars and clubs,” Shawn admits to Life & Style.
“Amber could see Leah every day, but she sees her maybe three times a week,” adds Shawn. “I don’t even know if Amber wants full custody of Leah. She enjoys her freedom too much right now.” As reported, Amber’s baby daddy Gary Shirley, who admitted last month that he was homeless, currently has custody of little Leah.
On Sept. 15, Amber was spotted at 59th Street Pub in Anderson and again on Sept. 27 dancing and downing beers at Jimbo’s Pub and Club in Anderson, Ind. “My friends were there and said she drank near a whole bottle of white wine,” reveals Anderson local Shane Butt. “She was kissing her new boyfriend [Jesse Stone] and even posing with her bottle of wine. It seems like rehab didn’t help too much.”
Shawn adds that Amber would rather be out at bars seeking attention from the Anderson locals than spending time with Leah. “She likes to go out where people see her and recognize her,” shares Shawn. In Amber’s defense, previous reports have stated she’s only allowed to see Leah twice a week during supervised visitation so perhaps partying is her unhealthy way of dealing with not having custody of her daughter.
While Amber is said to be dating new beau Jesse Stone (pictured below), Gary tweeted days ago that Amber was still trying to get back together with him. Gary wrote, “Spent a Lil time with Amber, just goes to show me that our relationship is like a burnt log and it can’t be relit.”
He then added: “I said no to her on getting back together she cried so I gave it some thought and she started calling me names like trash ect.” Gary broke up with Amber three weeks ago after getting a giant tattoo of her name on his back. He accused her of cheating of him.
Doesn’t sound like this dysfunctional relationship will be ending anytime soon! Below is a photo of Amber’s new boyfriend Jesse.
