Amber Portwood’s son James is officially a California resident.
According to The Sun, the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter star’s ex boyfriend Andrew Glennon is now living in his mother’s Malibu home with his and Amber’s son, nearly three months after he was granted sole custody of the four-year-old.
As The Ashley previously told you, along with sole custody, an Indiana judge granted Andrew’s petition to relocate to California with James. Though Amber is allowed to visit her son, she is required to fly to California every other month to do so. (Andrew has been ordered to bring James to Indiana on the alternating months for visits, too.)
Andrew is now listed as living in the $5 million Malibu home, owned–- and currently occupied–- by his mother, Charmaine Witus. Zillow describes Andrew’s mom’s Malibu pad as a single-family home located on 3.05 acres. The house includes 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a pool and spa.
The residence also features a guest house, currently occupied by Andrew’s sister and her fiancé. Andrew reportedly attempted to use this detail to his benefit in court, arguing that there is more family around the home to help support both him and James.
While Amber previously likened the judge’s ruling to a nightmare, the current custody plan will be rolled out in phases to help James adjust, and Amber will be allowed overnight visits with the boy for the first time since 2019–- back when the former couple split following Amber’s arrest for felony domestic battery against Andrew.
Andrew first noticed the court in April that he wanted to move back to his home state of California and take James with him. He also demanded at the time that Amber pay him $125,000 in back child support he said Amber owed him, $20,000 to cover his lawyer fees, as well as regular weekly child support. Instead, the judge ruled that Amber would pay Andrew $52,266 in back child support and $3,000 towards Andrew’s attorney fees, in addition to $624 weekly for child support.
When determining these figures, the judge reportedly took into consideration that Andrew had been living rent-free in Amber’s Indiana home since their 2019 split.
