Teen Mom OG Cast and Ex-Fiancé Gary Support Amber Portwood At Domestic Violence Hearing
Teen Mom star Amber Portwood was surrounded by a support system on Thursday, July 25, as she appeared in Marion County Court in Indiana for domestic abuse charges.
Teen Mom OG cast members Catelynn Lowell, Cheyenne Floyd, and Maci Bookout all flew to Indiana to support Portwood alongside her ex-fiancé Gary Shirley.
Portwood was arrested for domestic battery on July 5 following an alleged fight with boyfriend Andrew Glennon. The argument got quite heated and even involved a machete. “[Amber] struck the machete at and into a door, while Andrew Glennon was standing directly on the other side of the door, that created a substantial risk of bodily injury to Andrew Glennon,” the document stated. Portwood “wasn’t just upset out of nowhere,” a source told Us Weekly following the arrest. “There were things going on between her and Andrew that led to this.”
Following the incident, it was confirmed that Glennon intended to seek full custody. In the paperwork filed, Glennon claimed that his girlfriend was not able to “provide a safe, stable and secure environment” for 14-month-old James. The reality star was ultimately granted supervised visits with her son.
