‘Teen Mom’ Star Faces Jail Time for Allegedly Violating Probation Terms


Hemera/Thinkstock(ANDERSON, Ind.) — Court documents filed in Indiana, which have been obtained by TMZ, allege that Amber Portwood of Teen Mom fame has violated several terms of her probation.

The 21-year-old Portwood was sentenced to two years in jail after she was convicted of beating up Gary Shirley, the father of her daughter, Leah. The sentence was suspended on various conditions, which she allegedly has since broken.

Those lapses reportedly include failure to complete six months of anger control evaluation and classes, failure to set up a $10,000 college fund for her child and failure to pay probation fees. It is also alleged that she got drunk and hit someone in a restaurant last month.

She recently revealed that she struggles with bipolar disorder and that she was also diagnosed with dissociative disorder while in rehab this summer.

A court hearing is scheduled for January.
