‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Amber Portwood Loses Custody Of Son After Threatening Boyfriend With A Machete
The fight got intense real fast.
It seems like there is never a dull moment for MTV Teen Mom stars. A couple of months ago, former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans made headlines when her husband David Eason shot their family dog, and they lost temporary custody of their children. Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood is, unfortunately, facing the same thing. Amber Portwood loses custody of son after an intense fight with her boyfriend.
If you've watched Teen Mom OG from the beginning, you'd know Amber hasn't exactly had the easiest ride. She has been to rehab multiple times and was even in jail for a few years. When she was released, she made an effort to not turn to drugs and stayed on a sober path.
A few days ago, news broke that Amber Portwood was arrested and charged with domestic violence. More information is coming out now, and it's not good. According to TMZ, a fight between Amber and her boyfriend Andrew Glennon broke out and got violent. While holding their son, who is a year old, Amber struck a door with the two on the other side with a machete.
Thankfully, the machete didn't cause any injuries, but she then proceeded to throw a shoe at Andrew while he was holding their son James. This fight apparently broke out because their plans for the 4th of July fell through.
Amber has lost temporary custody of their son, and the judge put a restraining order on her so she can't go anywhere near Andrew or their son James. She not only was charged with domestic battery but was also charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
Amber has two children, which includes Leah from a relationship with Teen Mom 2 star Gary Shirley. She currently does not have custody of Leah either, and Andrew has filed for sole custody of their son.
Amber has struggled with bipolar and borderline personality disorder, and TMZ reported that Andrew believes she refuses to take her medication to treat these illnesses.
