Teen Mom Amber Portwood tweeted about Gary Shirley’s infidelity before alleged suicide attempt

Teen Mom Amber Portwood Gary Shirley and their daughter Leah out shopping

Though the numerous reports surrounding Amber Portwood’s trip to the hospital earlier today are somewhat conflicted, they do seem to concur that the troubled star of Teen Mom was feeling depressed and suicidal prior to police and ambulance arriving at her home and transporting her to the hospital.

Before the incident Amber took to her Twitter account to express outrage at her ex Gary Shirley for alleged infidelity by tweeting:

Heres my tweet f**k all you haters! Im a nice person to great! Maybe next time he shouldnt cheat w 3 girls! Why do you think i was so mean!

This could be alluding to statements made earlier by Amber that Season 3 of Teen Mom would reveal why she was so violent towards Gary in previous seasons – violence that resulted in a two-year probation sentence being handed down last week.

Amber seemed much more depressed and desperate when she later tweeted:

@ItsGaryTime Truth is out but gary I can’t take people hating me for a lie u told me I’m so broken! I can’t do this no more

Amber’s Twitter account has since been deleted and Gary offered up both an explanation and a rebuttal to the cheating allegations on his own Twitter account:

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.

Due to recent events, it was best that Amber delete her Twitter.. Appreciate all those who continue to support.

UPDATE – Gary has tweeted again in defense of himself:

I will say this Amber is fine. I never threatened custody to Amber if we couldn’t trust each other we would have problems. But we can.

This is really awful stuff. All I can think about is their daughter Leah and how in the world she’s going to cope with all of this now and as she grows up. I hope Dr. Drew is on a plane to Indiana as we speak!

    Ick Gary is so lazy, when Teen Mom was on and she was violent, I thought it was b/c he would never do anything to benefit the relationship or the child. I do not condone violence but when your young and dont having coping skills things happen. I think he is toxic for her and she needs to get away and concentrate on her and their child. I dont believe she is a bad person or mother, just needs some REAL support without it being televised.

    Oh my gosh, this is awful. Amber and Gary need to end their relationshop for GOOD! Amber needs her mum, dad, family or friends to help her out after this whirlwind two years of fame and raising a daughter in the public eye. Gary and Amber’s relationship is poisonous and is unhealthy for Gary, Amber and little Leah. Clearly the pressure has mounted and she needs some serious help. I hope that she is supported through this so Leah has a mommy to grow up with.

    Dr drew is an idiot he does help them how more reunions have these girls have and he never really help them . Amber has really problems and she need help maybe MTV should really care less about rating and more about the mental health of the girls and the babies

    • nunya

      I know right? When will idiots start to see that Drew cares NOTHING for these girls!?

    • likewhatever

      Dr drew is all about taking his check to the bank just like the teen garden tools.

    I am pretty sure Gary threatened custody in the teen mom season three trailer! What a jerk!! I don’t like amber all that much but I have always liked her better than Gary!!

    I think that we push our kids to want to be on TV more and more these days in the hopes to be famous. I also believe that we allow our kids to be unsupervised starting at a young age because it is making our lives easier. I do not believe that a 15 year old should be allowed to just come and go as they wish and that is how many of these kids got to where they are now. If we pressure them and stick on them, they have less chances to be out there doing something that they should not be doing. Dont get me wrong, if they want to be having sex, they will find a way but us as parents watching their every move makes it more difficult to do. We should speak to our children at an earlier age about sex and not be afraid to have that conversation with them becuase it is difficult on us. I want my son to come to me and speak to me about anything, and I mean anything no matter the subject. If I had a daughter, I would do the same. Its a shame there are less people involved with these kids as they attempt to parent their children and unfortunantly, the cycle is not going to chance because they are now teaching their children the same things that they were taught. Good luck to leah who will probbably just end up on future teen moms shows as she herself is more likely to become a teen mom by example. Good luck to all of them as they part on their journeys however with past experiences with them, they will beback together soon enough to continue working on their damaged relationship

  • I knew there was a reason she was acting that way. Tough feelings to hide.

  • Jessica

    Seriously..Who would even wanna hook up with Gary? But Whatever 2 wrongs dont make a right! Amber was wrong and I guess so is Gary!

    now, they are adults and no matter what gary may “threaten” her with. the show, only illustrated who they really are. she is unstable and not a good mother.

    it happens more than we often see with young parents. more power to them for raising their daughter but no matter how much pressure there is on you in life, tkaing your life is unacceptable.

    if you have suicidal thoughts, get to know God. if you don’t believe in God, so see a counselor. if you can’t afford one, go to your local health department. where there is a will, there is a way!

    no child should be subjected to any of this drama. television or no television.

    ps. amber, get some help. you are unstable. gary, i understand you may seem like the innocent one, but don’t provoke amber and make her slam you like she often does.

    you two do not belong together. remain civil for the child and that’s it.

    When the episode aired where she beat him, I posted that it was because he cheated on her and everyone called BS. Idiots. Told ya!

    A TV show where domestic violence is entertainment and the best interests of the child come last. Where you can be morally judged by people who see you as nothing more than a TV character. Let’s face it: North America hates children and loves to watch people self-destruct. We have no ability anymore to differentiate feelings that matter from feelings manufactured by made for TV hack actors. What about the person sitting on the couch next to you? The people in your home, on your street? Do you know any of them as well as you think you know these TV characters? TV IS NOT REAL. These shows ruin lives.
