Amber Portwood Ditches Baby Leah To Party With Her Jail Mate And Paparazzi! What Is She Thinking?

The Teen Mom star spent the New Year’s weekend partying with her cellmate rather than spending quality time with her 2-year-old daughter, Leah. And the sad thing is, Leah wasn’t with her dad, Gary Shirley, either!

Although she spent 24 hours in jail after being arrested on Dec. 27 for domestic violence and child neglect charges, it seems that Amber Portwood still hasn’t learned anything. The 20-year-old Teen Mom decided to party with her cellmate and paparazzi this past weekend instead of spending time with her 2-year-old daughter, Leah. Is she crazy?

Amber is facing a court hearing on Jan. 19 and could lose custody of Leah!

“Amber was partying and drinking over New Year’s weekend,” a source tells “She hung out with her jail mate and two paparazzos. It seems like her new friend is a bad influence.” The jailbirds were spotted hanging out at the sports bar Buffalo Wild Wings in Anderson, Ind. on Sunday (Jan. 2) and although Amber couldn’t drink because of her age, she managed to get rather intoxicated later that night at a local hotel.

“She got drunk with the paparazzi and she even hooked up with one of them,” the source says. “She spent the night and then the next day they went to IHOP for breakfast.” Amber’s ex-fiance and Leah’s father, Gary Shirley, wasn’t too happy to hear about Amber’s wild weekend. “He’s hurt and was pissed off, but he didn’t do anything because he can’t because of the ‘No Contact’ order,” the source adds. The site also reports that while Amber was out partying, Leah wasn’t in the care of her dad. We’re hoping Grandma stepped up!

But, although Gary has been known to talk badly about Amber, lately he’s been on her side — and is even thinking about getting back together with her! As if one bad parent isn’t enough, Leah has two? “I’ve said a lot of s**t because I am mad but if anyone wants to come up and talk s**t about Amber I won’t let it happen because she is a good girl, and she’s my baby mama,” Gary, 22, tells TMZ. Despite the fact that Amber was charged with physically abusing him, he continues,  “I am fine with the fact that Amber hit me because she has gotten all the help that she needs. Ever since that she hasn’t put her hands on me.” Can you believe this? After everything they have been through Gary is going to let Amber back in his life and around baby Leah?

Will Amber lose Leah?

“When the no contact order is lifted,” Gary says,” if she’s single and I’m single then I’m sure we would try our relationship.” These people will never learn!
