Amber Portwood seems to get herself into one hot mess after another. The ‘Teen Mom’ hasn’t done much growing up since becoming a mother to baby, Leah. Now she’s really done it by allegedly hooking up with a registered sex offender!

After a public and bitter breakup with her baby’s daddy, Gary Shirley, Amber Portwood, 18, has jumped back in the dating pool. However, her taste in guys hasn’t gotten much better — in fact, it’s downright scary what she’s possibly turned to!

In times of emotional need the average person will turn to dating sites like Match.com or OkCupid.com to find a romantic prospect. But that stuff isn’t for Amber, who met Christopher Glenn Hossman while trolling a Wal-Mart parking lot. Classy.

Details are fuzzy about how the meeting actually happened, but someone better call Child Protective Services because it turns out her latest love interest might be a registered sex offender in Indiana!

But there might be two Christopher Glenn Hossman’s in the town of Anderson, IND! RadarOnline.com is reporting that Christopher, the 27-year-old who was convicted of child molestation in 2005, did NOT go out with Amber — in fact, it was a different Christopher Hossman.

“I watch Teen Mom and I knew that it was not my boyfriend,” say his former girlfriend, Brenda. “We had been dating for over a year and just split-up a few weeks ago. He had been staying at my home with my four kids who are aged between seven and twenty-two.”

The Christoper Brenda dated, was convicted of a Class C felony which in the state of Indiana means:  “A person who, with a child under fourteen (14) years of age, performs or submits to any fondling or touching, of either the child or the older person, with intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desires of either the child or the older person, commits child molesting, a Class C felony.”

Brenda tells RadarOnline.com that she and Christopher have hired an attorney and are looking into the matter.

Phew, we just hope this guy really isn’t the one who went out with Amber!
