We spoke to Amber just minutes after HL broke the news of felony charges: ‘None of this is true … they can’t charge me if they don’t have proof.’
Amber Portwood needs to face the music. The 20-year-old MTV Teen Mom star is being charged with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for beating up her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley on the show, and she doesn’t believe it’s actually happening — but it is. Amber faces three years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines!
“I didn’t hit Gary in front of Leah so there are no felony charges,” she told HollywoodLife.com. “None of this is true, there’s nothing against me. They can’t charge me if they don’t have proof.”
In the state of Indiana, domestic abuse is considered a felony if a child is present, Leah, 2, was there for both incidents.
