Amber Portwood Baby Food Stamps

Now that Amber is behind bars, baby daddy Gary Shirley has to provide for their daughter, Leah. However, a new report says he’s doing a questionable job, spending all his reality TV money on cars and booze, meaning he’s feeding his baby with food bought from food stamps!

Amber Portwood might not win mother of the year now that she’s serving her five-year prison sentence, but her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley is also finding it difficult to provide for their daughter, Leah, too. Leah is allegedly surviving on junk food like sugary cereals and Twinkies bought with food stamps!

According to Reality Weekly, Gary — who has full custody of 3-year-old Leah — has quit his job as a home health care provider and used all this money he earned from Teen Mom appearances.

Gary allegedly made six figures on the show, but according to a source, he “spent it faster than he made it.” The report says Gary has used his money on cars, a huge flat-screen television, and buying drinks for his friends.

However, this heavy spending has nearly bankrupt Gary, and is now on food stamps. The report says Leah lives with Gary’s mom, Carol, and Gary helps support his daughter with his unemployment benefits but is “too lazy to go back to getting a real job,” continued the source.

The source, who happens to be Gary’s friend, told the magazine: “Gary is a food addict…He’ll use his food stamps to buy Twinkies and hot dogs and sugary cereals.”
