Teen Mom Cast Update: MTV Paid for Amber Portwood’s Rent

Perks of being a reality star. “Teen Mom OG” star Amber Portwood was reported last year to skip rental payments and eventually faced a lawsuit. However, MTV actually paid the bill worth four months of rent. Read on for details.

RadarOnline.com exclusively attained a copy of the court documents from Madison County Circuit Court showing MTV’s initiative of helping its talent. In June 2014, the network paid $5,795 to the realtor in behalf of Portwood. The application fee and security deposit were included in the payment. Portwood currently resides in Ingalls, Indiana.


Few months after MTV’s financial support, Portwood got charged again with late payments. She finally redeemed herself in Jan. and Feb. 2015. Although, payment issues started again in March when she received a bounced check worth $1,150. Radar Online reported that the 24-year-old mom received an eviction lawsuit from the realty firm in April. Two weeks later, the case was dismissed when Portwood gave proofs of her payment.

Herald Bulletin reported that the realty firm’s attorney, Joseph Guy, explained that his clients wanted Portwood out of her four-bedroom home as soon as possible. On the other hand, Portwood claimed recently that the firm was just trying to take advantage of her fame by making a “big deal over nothing.”

Portwood currently lives with her 43-year-old fiance, Matt Baier. Her six-year-old daughter, Leah, who lives with her father, Gary Shirley, visits Portwood often. She actually experienced 17 months in prison because of domestic violence and drug abuse. Her lack of cooperation for the rehabilitation program led her to imprisonment.

“Teen Mom” Season 5 airs every Monday at 10:00 p.m. on MTV.
