‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood: ‘MTV Didn’t Make Me Hit Gary’

The Superficial / December 29, 2010

Seen here fulfilling her family’s dream to be the first grandkid to make bail in 24 hours, Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has apparently changed her tune about MTV paying her to assault Gary Shirley, according to RadarOnline:

Paperwork filed by prosecutors says that Portwood admitted her violent incidents were not staged for MTV. She made this admission in front of her lawyer after having been read her rights, according to the paperwork, which also said she claimed to be under a doctor’s care.
“She claimed the incidents were out of anger and were not staged for the reality show,” the paperwork reads, detailing an October 20 meeting of Portwood, her attorney and police.”She claimed to not remember everything due to some medical issues in which she is under a Dr.’s care for currently.”
According to the paperwork filed at Portwood’s December 28 arraignment, the 20-year-old mother of one will have the No Contact Order established upon her release from custody on bail or personal recognizance. A judge ordered her to have no contact with Gary Shirley. Earlier she was told she could not have contact with her daughter but the judge did not enforce that.

Ah, the old family court maxim of always making sure the child stays with the mother. Even if said mother has admitted in court documents to suffer some sort of “medical issue” that causes her to go into a violent blackout rage that ends in restraining orders. Let’s make sure the kid sees that person while that’s currently unresolved. What could possibly go wrong? *imagines baby getting kicked into a soccer goal* Haha! Babies aren’t balls.
