Teen Mom stars Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley know a thing or two about drama! Gary was just picked up for driving with a suspended license with Amber in the passenger seat, and his ladylove recently lost custody of their 2-year-old daughter Leah.
But the troubled reality TV starlet insists the custody issue is under control. “Our goal was always to switch custody over to Gary so that I can focus on and deal with my legal s–t,” Amber told E!. “She’s with her father now so I can get through all of my legal issues and hopefully we can be a proper family.”
She also had a message for the “haters” out there.
“They can call me a bitch,” Amber said. “I am a bitch. I’m one way with haters, but I’m another person when I’m with my daughter.”
And what about Gary’s recent driving no-no?
We were bored and had nothing else to do,” the 20-year-old mom of one joked. “We were in Ellis, Ind., because we were driving around looking for apartments for me to move into,” she said, and added, “We had pulled over on the side of the road in front of this one place. We were like the only car on the road and it was late, and the police station was right across the street. So, of course the cop came over and asked us what was going on.”
She went on to insist they weren’t in a squabble.
“But we were not fighting,” she insisted. “Gary and I haven’t had a major fight in two years.”
