Tyler Baltierra’s Sister Amber Says Their Father Butch Baltierra is Allegedly Drinking & Smoking Pot Again

Butch Baltierra is no longer totally sober, according to his daughter Amber Baltierra.

In the comment section of a Facebook rant posted on Sunday, Amber— who is the sister of Tyler Baltierra— revealed that the Teen Mom OG grandpa has allegedly slipped a bit in his quest to ditch drugs and alcohol. Butch has long-struggled with substance abuse issues and was shown going to rehab in Austin, Texas, on the last season of ‘Teen Mom OG’ and has stated that he has maintained his sobriety.

In November, he celebrated one year of sobriety. However, according to Amber, he is no longer stone-cold sober.

When a Facebook friend asked Amber if Butch was using again, Amber replied, “He’s smoking weed again.”

She also revealed that she is worried that Butch’s alleged dabbling will lead to yet another relapse for him.

“He drinks a couple beers here and there as well,” Amber wrote. “He thinks he can manage all this but it will progress into something big again. That’s what this disease does.”

(The Ashley would like to point that Butch has not confirmed that what Amber said is true.)

Amber— who also went to treatment in 2018 and is working a program to remain sober—is currently living in Austin as well.

In January, Tyler took to Instagram to proclaim how proud he is of his sister and father for maintaining their sobriety.

“Writing this with tears in my eyes because words can’t express the amount of peace & joy I feel in my heart,” Tyler captioned a photo of himself with Amber and Butch. “After seeing these two at their lowest & now seeing them sober & steadily climbing, I just can’t say enough how proud I am of both of them! I am a firm believer that the power of unconditional love in a family can truly transform the dynamic & I’m just so happy to call these two my family…I love you both SO MUCH & I’m SO PROUD OF YOU!!!”

In November, Butch admitted that he was struggling to “just say no” to weed and alcohol.

“Do I have obsessions? Yes I do. I think about smoking marijuana, I think about drinking every now and then,” he told his Instagram followers in a video. “I’m not a big drinker, but I’ve been thinking about it,” he said. “It’s not all that easy but I know it’s easy when you work a program, do H & I’s, and go to meetings. That’s all I wanted to say!”

Yesterday on his personal Facebook page, Butch posted about the 12-step program he uses, so it appears that he is actively trying to remain sober.

  1. please is this shocking cait is a pot head the whole family are losers how much longer before cait needs a vacation I mean rehab


  2. I’m stilling rooting for you Butch! I want him to remain sober not for his kids, or grandkids, but for himself. He was doing so well! Addiction can be a lethal disease. I hope he gets the help he needs.


  3. This is why you should keep personal issues personal…. I’ve been an addict and can’t imagine all my dirty laundry on TV… I don’t care how much you pay me…. NO THANK YOU…


  4. Tyler’s father and sister are lost causes.

    Ghost them Tyler, they are just a drain on your health and bank account.

    Butch your a fucking disgrace as is his fuckwit sister.


  5. Look at Amber…Throwing stones in her glass house. I’m sure she would be hurt/pissed if the shoe were on the other foot…she was already hurt when Tyler showed what she did to HIS house on Teen Mom. If it’s true, then yea Butch needs to get sober, but she shouldn’t be blasting him on social media, when she barely has her own shit together.


    1. I’ll never forget Amber’s strange self serving speech at T & C’s wedding and at the end she told Butch, but we still love ya and he said fuck you to her. Such a loving moment!


  6. Butch been high his whole life. They need to quit wasting money on rehab. The sister gets high too. Keep your money and sanity Tyler. When they ready they will do it on their own.


  7. Well, I hope for Butch’s sake, if it’s true, he just slipped up and gets back on the wagon. One of the worst things any addict can do is believe they’ve got control of the situation (the drugs/alcohol). One day at a time brother, one hour at a time if you need it.


      1. You know if you keep tapping the thumbs up after you accidentally down vote, it’ll change it to an up vote and vice versa 🙂


  8. I agree with you Cory and Trevor- but I can solve the question as to her motivation. The family is largely full of execrable bottom feeders, whose meal train is reality TV. They have no shame and no skillset
    So to stay relevant (and fed) they’ll share the most private, devastating parts of their lives. BUT this keeps them from having an actual 9-5.


  9. One has to wonder what her motivation is to post something like this on a public forum for anyone to see. In all seriousness there are so many people associated with the Teen Mom franchise that legit need to seek counseling for social media addiction (I’m looking at you Lurch, Jenell and Amber), they seek out validation from strangers on the internet, constantly post incendiary nonsense then delete minutes later as if it was an oopsie. They’re all grown ups but lack the foresight to see how damaging posting this bs can be in the future for them and those around them.
