Amber Portwood from the MTV show Teen Mom, which documents the lives of young parents, describes living without her daughter Leah as “lowest of the low.”
US Weekly also reports that the young mom, who is trying to overcome anxiety and depression, adds that “every night [Leah's] been saying, ‘Where’s Mommy?’” Her daughter has been living with her father for safety reasons while Amber works to regain stability in her life.
“Child Protective Services agreed it was safer for her to stay at Gary’s because of all the photographers outside my house,” says the 20 year old. Both Gary and Amber decided that having Leah live with Gary is best during this time.
Amber is notorious for her physical attack on the father of her daughter during filming of the show. She has been under investigation for domestic abuse in her hometown of Anderson, Ind.
“I feel like everything is spinning out of control, and I’m trying to put the pieces back together,” she tells Us Weekly. “I have to get myself better so when I get my baby back, she sees her mom as happy as can be.”
And the spinning uncontrollably continues. This past week Radaronline reported a 911 call made from Amber on Octber 20 telling authorities, “My now ex boyfriend is pushing me away… (he) pushed me outside in my underwear in the cold.”
The argument ensued past midnight regarding a misunderstanding over a text message made to an ex-boyfriend of Amber’s. Amber has also been romantically linked to a registered sex offender, according to reports.
Following the 911 call, no arrests were made, and Amber is still continuing her six month monitoring by Indiana’s child protective services, due to the televised assault.
