mtv teen mom amber portwood suicide

Where is this child's mother? Get her off TV right now! Either she's headed towards a nervous breakdown or she's turning into another tragic victim of fame-whoring!

The drama continues over on MTV's show Teen Mom, as Amber Portwood's life continues to unravel. Right now, she is facing a domestic violence case that could have her thrown in jail and lose her her child. On top of that, things have not improve with her and her baby daddy Gary Shirley, who recently called the police to his home after Amber threatened him and locked herself out of her house in her underwear.

But that's not even the worst of it.

The worst is that Amber maybe suicidal! According to a friend of Gary's, Jordan Sanchez, there have been several instances where Amber has called Gary at his place and told him, "Come home or I'm gonna kill myself!" Furthermore, the Teen Mom star has also allegedly been sleeping until 7 p.m. some days and has been abusing Klonopin, a powerful sedative.

OMG! Where'd she get her hands on that?

If this is all true, then someone at MTV needs to step in. She's made enough money for them. Now it is time to get her some help!

    She’s just reaping what she's sown. She’s a spoiled manipulative brat who is acting out because she is not getting her way.



  2. 2

    For Klonapin to be a "powerful sedative" she would have to be taking a very high amount of it. I take it for anxiety and no it doesnt make you sleepy or anything. You just dont have panic attacks, and are able to be productive and normal. She would have to be taking a crapload of it.



  3. 3

    Highly doubt this is for attention. This girl was incredibly unstable when she was pregnant and has only continued to get worse. She obviously has anger management issues as well as some kind of mental problem. Her "relationship" with Gary is crazy and they should just stay away from each other as they seem to only bring out the worst in the other. She should be off the show and her child should definitely be away from her until her mental problems are solved. Very sad.



  4. 4

    do they not see that this girl is postpartum and needs help…smh I really hope she get that care and help she need that stuff is no joke



  5. 5

    Seriously, someone needs to get that poor darling baby away from that pig-faced nutcase ASAP.



  6. 6

    Klonopin is not a powerful sedative. It's an anti-anxiety drug, and we know she has depression via the show. Klonopin would only be powerful if she were given too high of a doseage, or if she were taking more than one at a time. She's a drama queen and she disgusts me. She should have her child taken away from her, and she needs to grow up. She's completely immature, and I understand that having a child at a young age is hard, but you can't be selfish when you have a little kid who is relying on you.



  7. 7

    FYI: Klonopin is used in treating severe anxiety and panic attacks…..so she might be having some severe issues she is being treated for. Sleeping that late might mean she is taking too much and her doctor needs to cut back.



  8. 8

    This is sad. I hope they all get the help they need.



  9. 9

    Get her help? Are you serious? She is threatening suicide to get her way. What kind of lunatic abuses Klonopin while taking care of a child. She deserves everything she gets.

    She makes me sick.



  10. 10

    When one put's "trash" in the spotlight, the trash seems more illuminated. If the producers are more interested in exploiting and profiting off of the possible death of a mother, and serious mental and/or physical trauma to a young child, THEY should be held liable. Where is common sense?



  11. 11

    Amber would be doing her baby, Gary, and the rest of the world a huge favor if she would follow through with her suicide threats, but no, it's just a pathetic, manipulative ploy to get attention! I want the next update on her to be that she has been arrested on charges of assault!



  12. 12

    As bad as people dog her out.. it must be really hard to be this young and live your life in a media circus. I pray for her Gary and the baby!



  13. 13

    Perez… the more you give this girl attention, the more she will act out. STOP, for the sake of the child.



  14. 14

    I've seen the show and it breaks my heart to see how she treats her boyfriend/fiancee (it seems she can never make up her mind) I have never seen a man be so patient, then it became obvious she'd beaten him down so badly, he was afraid to talk back to her at all. Gary treated her like a queen for the longest time…she really needs help. I hate to say this, but the daughter needs to live with Gary or she's going to be permanently emotionally scarred.



  15. 15

    Hope she does it before she shits out another kid for the taxpayers to support



  16. 16

    if anyone watched the first season you would have seen her go to the dr and be prescribes the klonopin…… so that is where she got them. but she sux. i'd be glad



  17. 17

    Well apparently no one on here is familiar with the show, there could be more sympathy. From the beginning, 16 and Pregnant, you can see this girl was never happy with herself :( poor soul. She wanted someone to love her, where is her parents in all of this?, everyone on Teen Mom has someone to run to but she doesn't. Last season her father was dying. Her brother is in Iraq. She is a young mom. Yeah her life is tough and she doesn't know the right way to handle it. Girl friend I think we need you to take your daily vitamins of Oprah or travel around the world, it always helps me know that my life is not as bad as it is ;)



  18. 18

    This girl is mental.



  19. 19

    Amber is a lazy pig! She just wants a attention! Maybe shes doing all this drama to get her own show! She is trash!



  20. 20

    Re: crickets – do u not know where babies come from?



  21. 21

    It was in season 1 when she went to the dr because she was "so stressed being a mom and dealing with Gary" that she got the meds from her dr. He started her off on klonapin which is like the strongest drug…..he shoulda given her zyprexa or something not so strong and addictive. Amber is just a train wreck waiting to happen! What a hot mess! Poor baby Leah!



  22. 22

    You know, I thought she was on some type of sedative. Just from how unstable she is and sometimes how she talks slowly. She also seems to stare off and space out. I remember watching her on the show and thinking, this girl has got to be on some type of pills.



  23. 23

    Um, yeah, she isn't gonna kill herself. That is what immature little girls do to guys. It's either the give me attention or i'll kill myself, or i'm faking that i'm pregnant to get attention. Bottom line, girl's and attention go hand in hand, grow the fuck up. We could only be so lucky that you would kill yourself, than maybe that child would have a chance in life.



  24. 24

    This girl is always being physically abusive to Gary in front of the kid, and just seems to have a terrible attitude about life in general. It seems like everyone around her just walks on eggshells because they are terrified of her.



  25. 25

    Klonopin is awesome.



  26. 26

    That baby is sooooo incredibly cute! She looks like a doll. Sad that the Mom seems so unstable. I've never watched this show, but have to question why it is all over the gossip mag covers and why it gets so much press. Is this glorifying teen parents?



  27. 27

    Re: LiLStrlett – I've only watched this show a few times, but the times I've seen this girl in action, she is more than just "immature". She is unstable and needs intensive psychiatric treatment.

    Instead of slamming HER, MTV and Dr. Drew need to be slammed for continuing to exploit an obviously severely troubled young woman.



  28. 28

    I hope this isn't true. Yes, we know Amber has mental problems, but let's hope she is not suicidal. Hope she gets the help she needs. Leah sure is a cutie pie. But if anybody really watched the show, you would know this "friend" Jordan is a lying instigator.



  29. 29

    How sad. Amber is obviously depressed and I'm sure the press reporting on how bad of a person and mother she is isn't making it any better. I feel for her. Its hard to be bullied but its even harder when the WHOLE WORLD is putting you down. I hope she gets the help that she needs and I hope the press leaves her alone for a while.



  30. 30

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – While it's a sweet and extremely naive sentiment, Oprah and 'traveling around the world' won't help this woman…intensive treatment will.



  31. 31

    Totally agree about MTV needing to step up. She was a child with big problems from day 1 & MTV exploited that. Who wouldn't be suicidal after everything she's been through? I've thought all along that they should pay for in-patient psychiatric care and this just validates it.

    Oh please, just go ahead and do it already. You've already fucked up your life anyway.



  33. 33

    That Jordan Sanchez guy is thoe one on Teen Mom who provokes Gary to argue with Amber over the phone and tries to ruin her birthday on purpose cause he hates her.. yes, theres a possibility that Amber likes attention but Jordan is definitely a fame whore!



  34. 34

    People don't threaten suicide if they mean really it… Sadly they just do it and we generally find out later why… In her case now if she does this after announcing to the world it was something she wanted then if she has life insurance likely that wouldn't even benefit that child… This chick is a nutjob and needs some serious meds! Cancel this waste of tv time already…



  35. 35

    Re: MsJules – Her family and her own choice to be rednecks on TV and then you are indicating she get the pity card from the rest of the world? Sorry you don't get forced onto a reality show you ask to be on it and then ask for money for it… These people all in the "Reality (which we should all know is not) TV" world need to be put off of celeb life and get jobs… This wholre reality TV generation needs to stop trying to lazily become famous for literally doing nothing and trying to use some brains adn old fashioned hard work ethic then this world could start to become a better place…



  36. 36

    Amber is my least favorite mom on "Teen Mom" but just because she has issues does not mean that her child should be taken away from her. She needs counseling or different medication or a combination for her anxiety(which is a real and serious problem and if she needs medicine like Klonopin to help control it then she should be on them. period. that isn't something that we should speculate on nor should this Jordan fellow). If you watch the show you'd know that Amber has to do a lot of it on her own with no real support system and Gary does not do a good job of taking care of Leah. They are both too immature to be parents but they are parents. Maybe taking some of the spotlight off her for a while would be helpful?



  37. 37

    oh and @LaffyTaffy I know Jordan is awful! I wish he wasn't on the show. He is a bad influence on Gary.



  38. 38

    ugh she's the most annoying human being ever! MTV should step up and take her daughter away from her!!



  39. 39

    Re: Jaye1980 – Its not meant to be serious…. but the traveling does help.. i travel all the time to 3rd world country.. life is not as bad as it seems when you do that. Oprah can help, she always have those message at the end of her show to find a way to empower yourself. but honestly wasn't supposed to be serious, don't take shit soo serious. Oprah alone can't help someone from committing suicide.. or could she?



  40. 40

    klono? Powerful sedative? How'd she get it? She probably walked into a therapist's office and they handed it to her, it's not exactly hard to come by. I take them before I go to bed to help me calm down to sleep.

    The whole show is disturbing for portraying teenage pregnancies as being cool and a shot of 15 minutes of fame. MTV is a disgusting network. Next to it, The Maury show and Jerry Springer are the epitome of moral values.



  42. 42

    ehh don't believe it. she's all talk. she'll do anything to get attention. hello, anyone remember when she pretended she was pregnant? it was so obvious she was faking it because she's a horrible actress.



  43. 43

    Amber's mother must be the ultimate b i t c h for not stepping in. This is horrific. I feel so bad for Amber. It's not your fault girl, and no matter what people say, they're not living out their mistakes for the world to see. Pregnant at 16 and fully supporting yourself whereas all the other girls on Teen Mom are not, is a hell of a lot of stress to try to deal with. Gary is USING you and making you volatile ON PURPOSE. It makes him more famous and gives him Leah, to CONTROL YOU.

    Someone needs to step in from MTV, seriously. Put her on Celeb Rehab with Dr. Drew, or just, do something. This is so so sad. Really, I hope she doesn't do anything as brash as committing suicide. Amber is the realest mom on the show, all the other girls are definitely not as raw in front of the cameras and obviously hide their shit better, but they've ALL got hidden drama. Just think of Farrah's battle with her mom, that wasn't captured on film, but there was violence there. Probably more so then what Amber did to Gary.



  44. 44

    She needs one on one therapy. Those meds they prescribed to her while on the show aren't enough. She needs professional help. No doubt shes a horrible mom, but that doesn't mean suicide is the answer.\

    She needs to separate herself from Gary and Leah and work on herself mentally because she's not doing any better.

    For the sake of Leah, she needs psychological help because god forbid she takes her life AND Leah's or Gary's life. I just feel bad for the child. Amber is not a suitable mom and should not be around Leah.



  45. 45

    Re: kendra525 – Totally agree. well said.



  46. 46

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Her issues are deeper than that. She needs professional help, but I do agree she lacks support, BUT Gary tries to give her support but she pushes him away which stems from deeper issues she has. Her parents are separated. The show doesnt show how her parents interacted. Domestic violence can be stemmed from her childhood. Her issues are do deep that a trip around the world or a trip to oprah can help her temporarily, but she needs more help than that.
    Point blank. Amber needs psychological help which I'm sure MTV could afford.



  47. 47

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – If you have the money to travel all the time, I'm sure your life is not as seriously bad as hers. Amber is financially strapped, despite making money from the show. You can take a depressive person around the world and even after the trip, they'll still be the depressive person. They can't be "cheered up". They need help and support from a professional like a therapist or even a group directed by a therapist. She needs help with her domestic violence and her depression.



  48. 48

    maybe we should give more irresponsible teenage children a show on tv, so they can be rewarded for being irresponsible teenage children. that would be a great idea.



  49. 49

    The ONLY fame whore here is Jordan Sanchez. It seems to me that every time I read something about Amber- it is a quote from Jordan Sanchez. Amber needs help- terribly. She doesn't know how to speak without whining or yelling. The fact that all of this goes on right in front of their child is sickening. All she seems to do is lay in bed or on the couch in every scene she is in. Severe depression?



  50. 50

    I knew Jordan when he and i worked for the same company. He's just as big of a liar and a douche as she is.



  51. 51

    dont threaten do it you skank im sick of seeing stories about you.



  52. 52

    Re: Sweetness24

    MTV pays her thousands per season so if she is poor it is because she can't manage money.



  53. 53

    sounds as though the attention is off of Amber and she is trying to get it back…now dont get me wrong suicide threats are ALL to be taken seriously and I again hope that she is getting the treatment that she needs and on the MEDS that she NEEDS not the ones she wants. BUT if Garry doesnt want to be there, and who the heck would really push him to go back? I applaud him for leaving and staying away and making good on his threats to get the baby out of there and safe! But it sounds as though Amber needs to be treated for ADD since when the attention is not on her, she finds a way to make it revolve back to her and somehow stay there……..



  54. 54

    ok, Amber obviously has issues but is the "source" of all this information Gary's idiotic bestie. Is Jordan Sanchez that guy that was constantly in Gary's ear. I don't feel that he is much of a reliable source.



  55. 55

    We don't know the full story, but just from what we saw throughout the season, MTV should have stepped in when it all started to turn abusive. I know the cast has contracts that they can't really converse with the crew, but when things start to get dangerous to well being of those involved, I feel like those contracts become invalid. Now look at Amber - all this show did was exploit her. (Though I agree w/ what someone else said; she brought it all upon herself.) I wonder if her problems would still be so extreme if America didn't view her as a monster. (No doubt bad, but I feel like the publication of the show was probably what did her in.)



  56. 56

    Re: naima – - Can you give one example of when they've portrayed any of these girls' stories as 'cool?' Because I can't think of one. There's times when everything is okay - take Maci for example, but every single girl on this show is going through hardships because they are young parents. Every single girl has said that they wished they waited before having sex. I just don't understand how some people can take from this that being a teen mom is 'cool,' or 'glorifying' pregnancies. Just b/c of the fact that they have a show? B/c what I've gotten from the show is that it's an extremely difficult lifestyle.

    Re: Littlelori – Are you a Pharmacologist? I doubt it, but if you are, forgive me. I took Klonapin and it knocked my ass into next Thursday. These drugs are powerful and affect everyone different…Little Lori, to lead anyone to believe otherwise is irresponsible.

    Any one of you 56 people who replied could be the single reason this young woman stops threatening to take her own life and just chugs bleach or takes more of what most of you fools with zero training have deemed an ”innocuous or not powerful” drug. None of you have accounted for the X factor!!! The X factor could be an undiagnosed respiratory problem and taken with a large amount of klonopin could render her unconscious and to possibly stop breathing.

    Just because you don’t like her on the show, or because you don’t like her nose, you have lambasted the hell out of a perfect stranger. All you do know is that she is weak and in trouble. And you all chose to make it worse … even encouraging her to kill herself!

    DO YOU NOT THINK SHE READS THIS???

    YOU 56 PEOPLE FEEL OKAY ABOUT ASSUMING TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT A STRANGER AND THEN TO TELL HER HOW SHE’S FUCKED UP HER LIFE FOR GOOD, SHE SHOULD LOSE HER KID AND THAT ESSENTIALLY NO-ONE CARES ABOUT HER.

    Your parent’s would not be proud to have you as children today. I would not be proud to be your friend or sister.

    You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    If someone is in trouble don’t blame MTV, don’t call her weak, don’t blame Gary’s friends…SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP…YOU FOOLS MIGHT HAVE JUST PUT HER IN HER GRAVE.

    I hope someone prays for all of you tonight because I will be praying for Amber and then reaching out to her.
