“Late this morning (11:34 a.m.), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive,” the police statement reads. “According to the caller, Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation.”
The 21-year-old reality TV star is currently being evaluated at St. John’s Hospital. Reportedly, her on-off boyfriend Gary Shirley, 24, visited her briefly Tuesday afternoon.
“Due to recent events, it was best that Amber delete her Twitter,” Gary Tweeted. “Appreciate all those who continue to support.” He also wrote, “Never cheated on Amber.. She may have thought I did, but haven’t. I will always love and respect her even if we aren’t together.”
The mom-of-one has been through a lot as of late. In December 2010, the MTV reality starlet was charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery stemming for hitting Gary in front of their 2-year-old daughter Leah.
