Fans of MTV’s hit series Teen Mom know that drama is in no short supply when it comes to the lives of the eight women starring in Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2. While the focus is on their adjustment to life as young mothers, a large basis of the show is their relationships with their children’s fathers, and the new loves in their lives. Teen Mom OG’s Amber Portwood has had one of the most tumultuous stories on the show, but she is finally on the right track and doing great, that is until Matt Baier came along. They met on Twitter, he is 19 years her senior, and while her family members and audiences alike sensed something strange about him from the start, she adamantly defended him and even became engaged. Just recently however, red flags around Matt have been popping out everywhere thanks to the sleuthing skills of Radar Online and these are things that Amber can’t possibly ignore. Check out Matt Baier’s 5 biggest scandals!
5. 7 Children?
One of the biggest storylines for Amber on the latest season of Teen Mom OG was the bombshell that Matt Baier reportedly at 7 illegitimate children he hadn’t told her about. Her ex, Gary Shirley, found this out and informed her, and while Matt denied it at first, it turns our he did lie. He had told Amber he only had two children, but then admitted there were more, the actual number now is still vague. According to reports from OK Magazine, another one of Matt’s ex’s recently came forward claiming her child was his, bringing his kid count up to 8. While this had to have been a huge red flag for Amber, she says the two worked through and worked to build the trust back, and she stuck with him.
