'Teen Mom' Gary Shirley Bans His Ex Amber Portwood From Their Daughter Leah's Birthday Party

Teen Mom
star Amber Portwood wasn’t allowed to show her face at her daugher’s second birthday party last week. The reason? Her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley is mad that she’s got a new man in her life — mixed martial arts cage fighter Clinton Yunker!

Isn’t it a shame that Teen Mom star Amber Portwood didn’t get to see her daughter, Leah, blow out the candles on her birthday cake? The little girl celebrated turning 2 on November 13 surrounded by loved ones (and an MTV camera crew) at a party hosted by her father Gary Shirley, but one important person was missing — her mother!

Amber’s mother wants her to quit the show

According to Life & Style magazine, Amber and Gary were supposed to host the party for their adorable daughter together, but Gary pulled the plug on that plan after finding out that Amber had moved on to another man. The magazine reports that the MTV star is getting hot and heavy with mixed martial arts cage fighter Clinton Yunker.

‘Teen Mom’ Farrah Abraham says she didn’t abandon her daughter

“They were going to do a joint party for Leah’s sake, but Gary got so upset when he found out about Amber’s dating Clint that he uninvited her,” an insider tells the magazine.

“Amber was furious,” says the source, who goes on to explain that Amber is planning to throw her daughter another birthday party, which will also be filmed by MTV.

Amber fears for Leah’s safety

But little Leah didn’t let her missing mommy spoil her party, and everyone there showered her with gifts. “There was just cake and presents. Leah got a Barbie doll set and a pair of princess slippers,” says the insider.

Do you think Gary was wrong to ban Amber from their daughter’s birthday party, HollyMoms?

I think he should of let Amber there just because she had a new man in life. But Gary should have a choice because Amber is an abuser and neglectful mother.

It has NOTHING to do with the fact that she’s dating another man. It’s because she’s violent. She is being investigated for abuse, she’s lost custody of her daughter, and she is obviously making very little effort to get her back. Amber now has freedom and she loves it. Don’t make her out to be the victim here, because she is far from it.

With her violent tendencies it sure is good she is dating a cage fighter, maybe she can pick up some pointers. Its too bad she can’t bother to get her life together for her daughter.

Amber has no business being anywhere near her child, unless and until she learns to resolve her anger management issues and gets both her fists and mouth under control. I don’t understand why she hasn’t been arrested yet, considering there is taped evidence of her domestic abuse. I hope this child is living somewhere away from her. If you watch the shows, Leah runs towards her father and away from her mother during conflict. Pretty telling…

It seems to me that Amber has some pretty serious issues.
One of them being, I don’t believe she REALLY wants to be tied down with a child. It makes her angry inside which clearly comes out in the show. I was horrified to see her literally slug Gary and continue slapping him while screaming terrible things at him. He can’t seem to do one thing right in her eyes. No matter what it is, SHE gets angry and starts screaming at him. She whines. To sit there on the
finale with Dr. Drew and cry like she did is nothing more than a smokescreen. Gary seems to be fairly mild tempered and when he cried sitting in the car it was sad–anyone can see he was hurt she was going out with that other loser. Some men would have turned on her when she slugged him.it’s true and you all know it. He didn’t. That speaks for itself. She doesn’t deserve to have that child. She needs serious psychological help.

So because Amber made a mistake she is the bad gu for eternity? I’m sure you have been perfect every moment of your life. In this situation, Gary is being selfish and a total brat!

I think to do any less than what he did would be irresponsible. Amber can only cause emotional distress and anxiety to the child and all those there. If the tables had been turned he would not be allowed anywhere near the vicinity of the child… grow up!

Gary is NOT being selfish or a spoiled brat! Gary is thinking of LEAH which is something that Amber is NOT nor has she EVER done. AMBER is the one being a spoiled brat by having someone run to the media to have this story put out there. She’s trying to play the victim when she clearly is far from a victim! And Amber didn’t just make a mistake, she made a couple of mistakes that were AIRED on NATIONAL TELEVISION for the whole WORLD to see! There’s no way she’s escaping the backlash for all of that! Her parents, her friends, Amber herself, can try to play the victim card all they want but the world saw what we saw. Amber is NOT & has never been a victim of anything!

What a horribly written article!!!!!! Amber Portwood has disgraced herself in front of a television audience and shown vividly that she is a violent abuser and neglectful mother. If I was being beated by my child’s father I would not invite him either.

Shame on you for insinuation that she is the victim.
