No Wonder 'Teen Mom' Star Amber Portwood Is A Mess — Her Dad Thinks It's Funny She Hit Gary!

Amber’s dad doesn’t mind that she’s been charged with two counts of domestic violence — he actually laughs about it!

Like father like daughter — at least in Teen Mom Amber Portwood‘s case! The 20-year-old MTV star was charged Nov. 18 with two felony counts and one misdemeanor for domestic violence and battery, and it appears that Amber’s dad, Shawn Portwood, finds it endearing! spoke to Shawn about Amber’s new beau, Clinton Yunker, 23, and asked if he was concerned about her dating the mixed martial arts fighter. He laughingly responded, “Amber can handle herself. As we all know she does a little fighting herself.”

Amber’s dad went on to say that though he was unaware of Clinton’s criminal past, he didn’t find it that big of a deal: “If it’s a misdemeanor, it was a misdemeanor.”

Clearly, he must have the same feelings about Amber’s misdemeanor for domestic violence — great role model!
