Earlier today we published a story with updates on the relationship between Teen Mom 2 star Corey Simms and his new girlfriend, Amber Scaggs. In that post we mentioned that we had set up an interview with Amber that would eventually fall through in the midst of the onslaught of media attention she received after the story of her relationship with Corey broke.
We’re happy to announce that Amber has been kind enough to answer a few questions in an attempt to clear up some of the misconceptions and rumors spreading like wildfire on the internet. Here’s what she had to say:
What are some of the misconceptions being reported about you and your relationship with Corey?
There is no one who knows anything about Corey and I’s “relationship” besides close friends and family, so I’m sorry to say but a lot of the information you have been given is false.
Whom I stayed with while in West Virginia, is also very false information. I stayed with numerous friends and family, “of course I hadn’t been home in along time” and my trip was not for Corey, it was planned before he and I began talking.
The plane ticket: very false. A “family friend” if that’s what you wanna call it, did in fact purchase my ticket on a credit card, in the matter that I do not own one, but that “family friend’s” money was handed right back to them. You don’t honestly believe someone’s dumb enough to spend a thousand dollars without being sure if their moneys gonna be given back – I know I wouldn’t.
Have you talked with, or are you planning to talk with any tabloids about your relationship with Corey?
I have not spoken personally to any tabloids.
Was there anything you wanted to say to the Teen Mom fans trying to make you out to be a villain?
Teen mom fans are going to believe and hear what they want to. I’m only one person, I can’t control or go out of my way to change minds of complete strangers.
