Oops, she did it again! Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is once again behind bars.
Amber was arrested at her house yesterday. According to E! Online, the cops came to Casa de Amber because she missed her latest parole hearing. While at the house, they discovered some mystery pills in Amber’s purse that she did not have a prescription for. Because of this, the cops slapped the cuffs on her and hauled her downtown to the clink.
This comes just days after it was revealed that Amber had violated at least five of her probation terms (which stemmed from her on-air beatdown of baby-daddy Gary Shirley).
However, he always-outspoken brother, Shawn Portwood (who is affectionately known as “Bubby” by Amber) wanted to make it clear that not everything we’ve heard about Amber’s troubles are true. He took to his blog to defend his sister and rebut the claims that she’s violated her probation.
“I want to debunk some of the outrageous claims,” he wrote this morning.
According to Shawn, Amber has been abiding by all of her probation terms (except for that pesky “no pills in the purse” stipulation, apparently.)
Shawn wrote that in regards to Amber “failing to behave well in society,” (refering to the incident at the IHOP restaurant last month in which Amber got into a fight with another restaurant patron.)
“Negative! Amber did not hit anyone,” Shawn wrote. “The girl was starting trouble with her. Amber cannot go anywhere without someone trying to start something with her because of who she is.”
In regards to Amber supposedly failing to obtain her GED, Shawn says that “Amber is currently enrolled in classes to get her high school diploma, not her GED.” (Um…you can be ‘enrolled’ but not actually working towards it. Wasn’t she ‘enrolled’ in diploma classes like two years ago? Just saying!)
The third probation term that Amber is accused of violating is failure to complete six months of anger control evaluation and classes. To counter this charge, Shawn informed us that Amber is
currently seeing a psychiatrist two times a week for anger and depression.
As for the fourth and fifth terms that Amber has supposedly violated, both of which deal with money, Shawn said those are also false.
In regards to her failing to pay probation fees, Shawn said, “I am sure that she does not have a problem paying any fees considering what she makes a year.”
And as for her failing to set up a college fund for her daughter Leah, Shawn said Amber has more than complied.
“[This is] the biggest lie of them all,” said Shawn. “At the time of the hearing Amber already had $20,000 in a college fund for Leah. She has since added to that and it is almost $40,000 now.”
This is something The Ashley is happy to hear. She’s always wondered if the stars of the ‘Teen Mom’ shows are saving some of their MTV earnings in a fund for their children. At least something good can come out of the Portwoods appearing on this show if Leah ends up being able to pay for college with some of the MTV money.
I’d also hope that MTV is required to pay all of the children that appear on these shows. It seems like they almost have to, as they would be the equivalent to child actors, no? The Ashley will investigate this further.
She will also update on the state of Amber Jail-a-Polozza Part II when she hears anything new.
