Matt Baier— the hapless ex-fiance of Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood— has once again resurfaced, this time in an Instagram post by Love After Lockup star Tracie Wagaman, who admitted on Sunday that she and Matt had been in a relationship. Almost immediately after the post went live, Matt did an interview with YouTube channel Sharrell’s World.
In her post, Tracie talked about her time with Matt.
“I have taken a little social media break but I want to confirm some things,” she wrote. “The secret is out- I was seeing Matt Baier from ‘Teen Mom,’ earlier this year. This picture is cropped so closely bc it is not IG appropriate. We were seeing each other…”
In the comment section of the post, Tracie confirmed that she is still on good terms with Matt, despite their breakup.
“I want to emphasize I posted this bc this is now public knowledge and I am in no way speaking ill of Matt. I wish him the very best,” she wrote, later adding, “This post is not intended to trash him.”
Matt— who claimed he has a “really bad case of COVID” at the moment— said he dated Tracie “for probably a week.”
“Of all the people that I’ve met, I don’t think I’ve met a lot of people who have a kinder heart than Tracie does,” Matt said. “She doesn’t always make the best decisions. That being said, I have a lot of admiration for her because, of everyone I’ve ever met, nobody lives their life more unapologetically than Tracie does.”
“Tracie is living the life she wants to live,” Matt continued. “She’s in Vegas, she’s gambling, she’s got a new boyfriend that she’s happy with. She’s doing her OnlyFans thing.
Later, he talked about how Tracie is “selfless” but “can be a s**thead.”
“Tracie makes decisions that just make me shake my head, but, again, she doesn’t apologize for them,” Matt added.
Tracie later posted a link to Matt’s interview on her Instagram, writing, “Y’all know I am in a happy relationship with @loera_luke , and Matt and I only dated briefly, but my Man Crush this Monday has to go to Matt Baier because of the way that he responded to what I posted yesterday.
“He was gracious, classy and honest during the interview he did on Sharrell’s World yesterday. This is why I consider Matt Baier, wherever he may be, to be a friend.”
It’s been a year or so since Matt was in the news. In 2019, he did a variety of interviews after Amber was arrested for physically assaulting her then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
