SMH: MTV Paid Teen Mom Amber To Beat Her Baby Daddy’s A$s???

- By Bossip Staff

We really hope this isn’t true…if so, MTV ain’t sh*t!!

“THEY made me do it!” Teen Mom Amber Portwood claims MTV producers PAID her to pummel former fiance Gary Shirley on the show – and she’ll use that as a defense as she fights felony abuse charges that stem from the beating, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

The 20-year-old single mother was recently charged with one misdemeanor and two felony counts of domestic violence and battery after she was shown kicking and punching Gary in an episode that aired in September. Amber and Gary’s 2-year-old daughter, Leah, was present during two of the violent attacks.

But Amber insists the violence was all a ruse and that show execs gave her an extra $1,000 to “get physical” with her ex during filming because they “wanted more drama,” says an insider.

“Amber knows she needs a good defense, and reality show producers are known to stage scenes, so she thinks it’s believable.

“She says that the producers were concerned because they don’t get much drama from the other moms.

“They told her that she and Gary were the most popular couple on the show and that they would pay her extra to provoke a fight. Amber says Gary didn’t know about it because they wanted a ‘spontaneous’ reaction from him.”

Amber and Gary officially split in early November, shortly before she was charged with the abuse.

Indiana Department of Child Protective Services temporarily granted Gary full custody of Leah after the charges were filed, but have since returned her to Amber, who is closely monitored by DCS. In late November, Leah was officially deemed a ward of the state. After six months of monitoring by DCS, Amber can file for custody again.

The ENQUIRER recently reported that “Teen Mom” producers often set up scenarios they believe will instigate drama. One insider who has witnessed the show being filmed told us that “the producers lead (the cast) to believe they can do whatever they want without repercussion because they are stars.”

When approached by The ENQUIRER, MTV refused to comment on our story.

Now, says the insider, Amber is so freaked out about a possible jail sentence that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to beat the charges.

“She can’t believe MTV would put her in this position,” added the insider.

“It will negatively affect her for the rest of her life if she ends up having felonies on her record.”

We know they gotta do bullsh*t for ratings and all, but damn, this is down right ridiculous if this is true.

      I love younger women. I have dated only women at least 10 years younger and as
      much as 15 years younger than me for many years.Younger women just aren’t the
      same, different mentality.lamh. . They’re actually more fun and are usually more
      interested in me. I’m flattered. I think younger women like older men because
      don’t usually want to get married and are not usually independent ,they need a
      man to take care of them. I meet younger women on this website:—-Kisscougar.C’0M——-

    • Yeah . . . I Said It!

      She better be careful calling out MTV like that. She claims they gave her an extra $1000 to abuse her child’s father. If MTV is found guilty of doing so, you better believe she will no longer be on the show to receive the $60,000 per season check she is currently making. No more trips to Walmart, no more horrendous a$$ tatoos, no more fake tans,and no more acrylic nails fo’ that a$$!

  • drenk

    so charge MTV for aiding and abetting this chick beat up hurley simple as that

  • Superficial

    Ok but MTV didn’t MAKE HER DO IT. Apparently they said they’d pay her the extra money to do. She could’ve said no she doesn’t get down like that but she didn’t. She’s grown enough to make her own choices and she chose to slap him around..done deal. Consequences are a bit**

  • childrenofthenow

    She didn’t have to take the money. Lock her up.

    • Superficial


  • http://what? I gets down like that

    Ok, so what about that first time that Amber shoved Gary up against the door in a viloent manner? And not only was it done in front of her own father & baby Leah, she choked the shyt out of him after smacking him across the face, did MTV pay her to do that as well?? Amber needs to sit her azz down somewhere. I believe she was intimidating & whooping Gary’s tale long before this. And besides you’re gonna agree to this for only $1,000.00? Please, you’d have to grease my palms with more than that. I thought all those girls that are participating is PAID?….Guess Not

  • Txhustla15

    Lol MTV at one point used to stand for Music Television before became a reality show wasteland….

  • #teambreezy

    What i dont understand is that when snookie got punched in the face they blacked it out but when she punched kicked and smacked Gary they showed it all WTF!

    • Yada

      Thats ridicules, on this show one boy gets hit, but all the other girls have to suffer with dead beat dads, so I think i would feel more sorry for the Girls. The fact is girls are often the victim so that why there are such a bias toward guys.

    • Yada

      Plus how are guys victimized, remember Chris brown, Maury, Steve Wilko; everywhere the stigma is on the guy because they are the problem! Dont get me wrong, this chick is crazy because Gary didnt deserve that at all, but in this world, for every Gary their are 20 or even more being beat right now!!! I just think that this world has lost its respect for women that use to exist, remember we come from women, and all deserve proper respect!

    • G.M.

      @yada:SMDH…everybody knows if a man defends himself against being attacked by a woman he will still be considered at fault becuz men are usually bigger and stronger, women also falsely accuse men of domestic violence when women are actually the more likey agressors, its just since they’re weaker the damage isnt as visible, innocent men have been sent to prisons based on false accusations of women out of spite/bitterness, thats how men have been victimized, in fact, its not women that have lost the respect of men but women have lost respect for men and themselves and abuse the system constantly and play victim when they’re not like amber is now: oh mtv made me do it…fucc that b1tch

    • G.M.

      also, u should do your research about the statistics of women commiting domestic violence and taking advantage of being perpetrators as well as playing victim at the same time…they’ve even had a segment on “What Would You Do” where they had a man abusing his GF and ppl helped her but a GF abusing her BF nobody helped and some cheered it on supporting violence against men, so if u ever have a son/if u do, i hope u find satisfaction at the likely possibility that a woman can abuse him/harm him/kill him and get away with it by claiming to be in fear, i hope you’ll be poppin champagne at his funeral, just so ur precious feminist ego can be stroked…smh



  • G.M.

    even if this is true it goes to show not even the mother of ur own children will have ur back, she’ll beat ur a$$ for the right price…and this defense she’s claiming dont mean sh1t, if a hitman was paid to kill someone and did, are the charges dropped becuz he/she was paid to? HE11 NO! the next generation is fucced, women can literally beat the sh1t out of men with no consequences, EQUALITY MY A$$ hope u women with boys enjoy the fact some crazy b1tch can harm ur son or take his kids/ur grandchild away and get money to do it…smh

    Why can’t reality TV be reality TV.


    “MTV staged the Taylor Swift/Kaneye West stunt.”

    Really? How do you know. Not that I don’t believe you. Just wondering.


    If this is true they should be charged as well with the exact same charges, but this should by no means be an excuse for her trifling arse behavior!
