MTV Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is being forced to pay extra money to a rental company after she lied about her TV wages in order to secure low-rent government housing.
Portwood was originally served with eviction papers by her landlord when she sat in jail, then the company found out that the reality-TV star had raked in a cool $280,000 in 2010 thanks solely to her appearances on the hit reality TV series.
Obviously earning a quarter of a million dollars disqualified Portwood from keeping her government sponsored digs and a judge thought it was a big enough lie to also force her to pay.
The Indiana judge overseeing the Amber Portwood rent case issues a judgement for $673 which must be paid in 30 days or Portwood will face legal prosecution. In turns out the MTV star couldn’t even be bothered to respond when the court order to appear arrived at her residence.
There’s a good chance Amber will pay up in order to avoid jail, as we previously reported an insider said of her jail time:
“Amber has already been moved twice from two other cell blocks because all the inmates were threatening her and she was scared she’d get beat up, [...] One girl knocked over Amber’s food tray and another inmate threw toilet water in her face while she was trying to sleep.”
The only person who visited Amber in jail was her mother Tonya and probably for good reason, who after all would want to be around a liar abuser who steals affordable housing from family’s in need. I giver Amber Portwood three years before she’s broke and applying for low-income housing once again, perhaps with little sympathy from the state after she defrauded them the first time around.
