Injuries in Matt Baier abuse photos weren’t from Amber, but ‘roughhousing amongst my guy friends’

Matt Baier excuse for abuse photos BINGO

If you were playing “Matt Baier’s Excuse for Abuse Photos Bingo” and had “Roughhousing with my guy friends,” then you are a winner! What do you win? Ummmm…Twitter bragging rights?

Amber Portwood’s controversial fiance finally addressed the photos that recently surfaced online in which his face is severely injured with scratch marks and a black eye. Matt allegedly sent the graphic selfies to multiple women, and included text messages, reportedly from him, that suggested Amber Portwood caused the injuries.

Matt spoke with People and revealed that the pictures are just the latest additions to a growing mountain of evidence that seems to indicate he is a horrible person–but which he can easily explain. “The photo that surfaced is nothing more than the result of some roughhousing amongst my guy friends,” Matt said. “I got my butt kicked by a friend, and it was well-deserved, I might add. Now someone’s trying to use the pic to paint an untrue picture of our life together.”

I guess I should point out that Matt seems to be referencing a single photo, so I’m not sure what the deal is with the other two. Anyway, he continues to be Amber’s knight in shining armor, defending her adamantly. “The rumor that’s circulating is both vicious and completely false,” he says of the reports that Amber may have caused the injury(s). “I can’t stand by and allow the media or anyone else to undermine the progress that Amber has made in turning her life around, or the relationship we’ve worked hard to build together.”

Matt iterates that Amber has her anger management issues under control, and casually mentions that they are still planning on getting married this fall. “Amber would never lay a hand on me, and I can’t wait to marry the love of my life in October.” Well, I assume he means Amber.

Meanwhile, the woman named Tiffany Bassett, who appeared briefly on the “Being Matt” special and was labeled as a “side chick” of Matt’s by the Twitter account that first posted the photos, continues to vent on Twitter. In addition to insisting that she was never one of Matt’s side chicks, she also continues to hint at an upcoming “tell-all” interview in which everything will be explained.

(It’s important to note that Tiffany is currently battling cancer in the form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As mentioned in our previous post, Amber tweeted Tiffany’s GoFundMe page earlier this year and Tiffany mentioned in her grateful response that she looked forward to seeing Amber in a couple of weeks — which I am guessing was for the “Being Matt” filming.)

Here’s the Twitter exchange:

In our previous post, which included comments from Tiffany, we didn’t talk much about her cancer other than mentioning her interaction with Amber on Twitter back in January. But, judging from Tiffany’s more recent tweets, her medical condition appears to be a huge part of her story as far as her relationship with Matt and Amber and why she was on “Being Matt.”

First off, Tiffany clarifies that she was never romantically involved with Matt. “I was never a side chick- that term is so derogatory to begin with, nor was I with anyone romantically while there,” Tiffany tweeted. She also says that, despite how it appeared on the show, she wasn’t Matt’s friend Jeff’s date either. So why was she there?

“I was invited out literally just to make them look sympathetic for having a cancer girl friend around,” Tiffany tweeted. She later asserted her claim to commenters. “I legit am just some cancer friend they have,” she wrote. “I’m learning it wasn’t a real friendship. It was for show.”

But it sounds like there was a lot more to it than just the deception based on Tiffany’s cancer. “Words like ‘choice’ ‘wanted’ and ‘into’ do not describe wtf happened with me and Satan,” she tweeted. “It’s brutal.”

Despite her feelings towards Matt, Tiffany hasn’t had much negative to say about Amber at all — and she insists that Matt’s injuries in the pictures were not inflicted by Amber. From Tiffany:

amber didn’t do that. I promise you it was faked so that the girls he sent them to felt bad for him like his life was faked on camera and he was so miserable at home and needed comfort. Tragic. He never pulled that w/me

So when will we get all the details? “I already gave my story,” Tiffany said again. “WITHOUT PAY. And am awaiting the release date. I just wanted to prove I’m not in it for money as said.”

She continues:

Disease aside, every one of you are acting like I’ve done something wrong by assuming I’m some side chick who hasn’t told you guys some story you have to have. I have things to say- they don’t come CLOSE to what’s been said here.

NDA means I CANT GOSSIP ON TWITTER. At least not until my story breaks. then it’s open f**king season to answer any and all questions. These half assed assumptions about me are real basic and real dumb.

Tiffany sums up the entire experience in much the same way as all the other women who have had relationships with Matt in the past: “I would kill to not be involved in this god forsaken mess.”

Stay tuned.

  • Truth

    Just a dam mess. I don’t see this ending well for Amber.

    • NJJuls

      She has no one to blame but herself for what happens to her. There have been TONS of red flags & warnings from others about Matt. She CHOSE to ignore them all & stick up for him & cover for his lies. What ever happens, it’s all on her now.

    • sysmjp

      Yep, there’s a crack pipe with her name on it once she realizes he was playing her from day one and she was the last to know.

      • Kari

        Oh, she knows, she’s just in denial because being so wrong is incredibly embarrassing.

  • Bruja

    Disease aside? What the phuck does that even mean? Why the hell is the fact that she has cancer relevant in all this “he said, she said” bullshit drama-whore-fest? Used as their “cancer friend”? Come on. She signed an NDA and think they thought of her as a real friend? Lawls. Friends don’t make friends sign NDA’s, unless you’re LaLa Kent. ?

    They’re all damaged intellectually. All of them. Yes, even you- tattoo chick.

    • Brie Mode

      The NDA could’ve come from someone else, but this whole thing is kind of confusing to me lol

  • Brie Mode

    “Rough housing with my guy friends” ? Really?

    Dude you’re like 50-something.. Way too old to be “roughhousing” . I don’t buy it- especially considering the fact that he’d probably break a hip or some shit while “roughhousing”.

    Whatever. Amber is a complete and total dumbass for even getting with him in the first place, mush less sticking with him in spite of the many many MANY red flags that’ve smacked her right in the face numerous times. ut at this point, she deserves whatever bad that happens to her with him.

  • AshleyBlack

    Still so confusing. This makes my head hurt.

    Honestly, the SS of the messages we don’t even see a whole message. That could be easily photoshopped. Why crop a whole message when you can blur out the info? And Matt could have faked that picture for sympathy from his side chics. Or amber could have really done it. Either way this is a huge, confusing mess.

  • LoLo

    I just lost my breakfast due to the pic of Matt. Thank’s Starcasm!

    Other than Chelsea, Maci & Cait, it seems that all the the Teen Mom “friends” come off as odd. They look so uncomfortable & we rarely see the same friends from season to season. It’s like they beg or pay people to be on the show to make them seem likable.

    I wish Amber would kick his butt out & run. He’s a disgusting manipulator. I saw people on twitter defending him, saying they are happy, leave them alone. I don’t see anything happy between them. Amber always looks exhausted & checked out while he rambles on & on trying to explain everything away.

    • NJJuls

      They really need to put a warning on the site BEFORE they post his picture! You can’t unsee something that gross!

      • LoLo

        It would be nice! Sometimes men that aren’t that attractive become more attractive because of their personality & humor. I don’t see anything in this guy. He’s not funny, handsome or successful. His biggest accomplishment was contacting Teen Mom’s until someone took the bait.

        • NJJuls

          Exactly! There is nothing about him that makes him even the least bit attractive. Nothing at all

          • LoLo

            Yes, he’s actually the opposite. His personality makes him even worse than he looks. So slimy.

            • NJJuls

              YES! I’m not sure why, but he always looks dirty to me! He always looks like he is in need of a scrubbing!

              • YourMom

                Its his teeth, among other things. Lol

  • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

    I was confused enough reading the story about this yesterday, not even gonna attempt this one. But I will say that pic of Matt is nasty and Im embarrassed for him. The other women on the show were trying to hold their laughs in as Amber was saying how hot he was and that he had the body of a 25 year old. I think she meant a 25 year old, times 2.

    • Regina

      EW she said that? Gross. I have no desire to watch that “special”. Yuck.

      • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

        On the reunion special last season, the one where Amber tried to fight Farrah.

        • Regina

          Right right, I did watch that, I guess I just blocked it out.

  • TA

    First Matt said the pictures were old, before he even knew Amber. Until someone pointed out that the poster in the back ground is in their current hole together.
    Now he says it was rough housing with friends?


  • Regina

    Matt has friends?

    • Kail’s Fake Ass

      That was my question, he’s on the couch or in the car with amber at all times. What friends?

  • Guest

    I probably did it to himself.

    • sysmjp

      Probably? That goes without saying. It looks like he’s setting her up for some sort of domestic violence extortion.

  • Beezow

    What’s it going to take for you guys to stop using that picture?

    • Caty P. :)

      Lol, YES ^^ 🙂 I don’t ever want to imagine what’s under that blurred-out whatever (jacket? towel? trash bag?) shielding his baby maker.

  • Guest

    Ok why is one of his boobs significantly more hairy than the other???

    • Kari

      Lol you’re right!!

  • chzy avocado

    He’s disgusting
