'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Attempts Suicide Because Of Emotional Fight With Gary Shirley!

A source says that Amber threatened to attempt suicide — and her baby daddy Gary said, ‘Go ahead!’

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood and her baby daddy Gary Shirley have a very tumultuous and sometimes physical relationship where they are constantly fighting. Well it’s one of their most recent battles that caused the 21-year-old reality star to attempt suicide and be rushed to St. John’s Hospital in Anderson, Ind. on June 14, a source tells Life & Style magazine!

“Gary and Amber got into an argument [on the phone the morning of the incident],” says the source. “She said she was mad because he cheated on her, but he thinks that was just [an excuse] to pick a fight with him, because it happened two years ago. She said she was so upset, she was going to kill herself.”

But Gary, 24, had heard that line plenty of times before and didn’t believe that Amber would actually do it. So Gary, who was aggravated by the argument, told Amber to “go ahead,” continues the source.

Amber reaction? “‘Okay, when you come check on me, I’ll be in the garage with a rope around my neck and you’ll find my body there,'” notes the insider.

This caused Gary to worry and Amber stopped responding to text messages and calls after that. That’s when Gary asked his mother to go check on Amber. Gary’s mom found Amber’s door locked and had to call 911 so that she could get inside.

Gary, feeling guilty, went to visit Amber at the hospital. It’s then that she had a quite disturbing story to tell him. “‘It was the best feeling,'” Amber told Gary of her attempted suicide, admits the source. “‘I love the way it made me feel. It was euphoric. It was wonderful.'”

This made Gary even more upset. “He said at that moment he felt like trash — to be standing there with the mother of his child, who just attempted suicide,” adds the source.

Gary left the hospital shortly after because “they got into an argument, of course,” notes the source. “He ended up leaving her there.”

Yikes! How could Gary tell Amber to committ suicide. Even if he was just caught up in a moment of anger, he should have never gone that far. BFFs — do you agree?

Who cares if American hates amber… what a horrible thing for someone to say about another person. How about her daughter who loves her very much, how do you think it would affect her?? I don’t even know how you can sleep at night saying something that horrible.

Amber is old enough to know if she´s doing the right thing so, don´t blame Gary for this.

Amber is stupid for even pushing buttons like that, its not Gary’s fault she wants to act like a dumbass. She needs some help and he needs to get over her period.
