Amber’s friend tells HollyBaby.com that the troubled MTV star will be in a Malibu rehab facility for up to two months.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood, 21, has decided to get help — and we’re here to support her! Amber checked into a rehab facility in Malibu on Sunday, June 28, after she was hospitalized and resting at home following her scary suicide attempt.

A close friend of Amber’s tells HollyBaby.com: “Amber told me she will be in rehab between 30-60 days. It is her first time in rehab.”

“Amber is dealing with a lot of stressful issues right now,” the source adds. “People judge her all the time because of the things they have seen on the show — she hasn’t been portrayed in the best light at times but she is human and has feelings. She shouldn’t have to deal with hateful fans telling her they wish she would just die.  She loves Leah to death and wants nothing but the best for her, she wants her daughter and she wants to live happily.”

We hope Amber gets the help she needs!
