MTV’s Teen Mom, Amber Portwood and her on-again, off-again boyfriend/ baby daddy Gary Shirley have been through a lot, domestic violence, court appearances and now a possible suicide. Amber was taken to an Indian hospital after threatening her life after fighting over the phone with Gary.
According to ABCNews,
Amber Portwood, one of the mothers who shot to fame overnight on MTV’s hit reality show “Teen Mom,” was taken to an Indiana hospital after an apparent suicide attempt.
According to police in Anderson, Ind., Portwood was hospitalized Tuesday morning after threatening to take her life. She’d reportedly fought on the phone with her baby daddy.
The report comes just a week after Portwood plead guilty to domestic violence charges, after slapping and punching her ex-fiance Gary Shirley, and lost custody of her 2-year-old daughter Leah.
Police investigated the then-20-year-old after all of these events were captured on MTV’s hit show. Domestic violence in front of a child is a felony in Indiana.
Star Magazine reports that Portwood admitted to taking pills on Tuesday, and when paramedics arrived they found her drifting in and out of consciousness. The magazine also reported that rescuers removed a rope from around her neck.
But according to the police report in the case, Portwood did not appear to be injured — and was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.
The incident is the latest twist for the “Teen Mom” wild child.
MTV released a statement on Tuesday saying: “Our understanding is that Amber has been admitted to a local hospital but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of any reports being circulated and are waiting for further details.”
