Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood has made headlines these past couple of weeks for her on-again, off-again romance with fiance (or ex-fiance? No one really knows at this point), Matt Baier. Supposedly, Amber sent him packing after making him take a lie detector test that he failed. Reports swirled that the pair were finally off for good, but new statements emerging say that the couple have just put their wedding on hold, and are not broken up.
The couple put their wedding on hold last year after Amber Portwood said that she had trouble trusting her fiance. And now, after rumors spread that Matt had been having affairs during his relationship, and possibly even fathered another child, she’s finally trusting her instincts.
The conflicts between Amber Portwood and Matt run deep, and for long-time fans of Teen Mom OG, this rift is no surprise. In the most recent episodes of the series, Amber is seen in a bridal salon with her friend, Annette. After Annette takes her turn trying on a wedding dress, Amber decides she’s going to try one on as well, but not before having a semi panic attack.
Amber Portwood confides to her field producer that she is extremely afraid of marrying Matt, that she loves him and wants to spend the rest of her life with him, but she doesn’t understand the rush to get married. But not only that, she reveals, part of the reason is that she can’t trust him.
Finally, she gets up to try on the dress, but breaks down in tears. And they’re not the happy kind. Instead, she’s worried that her feelings about getting married haven’t changed, despite the dress and the tiara.
In the sneak peek for tomorrow’s episode, there’s a full on blowout when the couple look for venues. Matt screams that he will “never marry her” and says that Amber Portwood wants to marry her brother, which is a pretty low blow.
An insider made a comment on the pair’s relationship and their current decision to put the wedding on hold.
“A lot has come out through the course of filming and from various online stories. That has added extra pressure and made things difficult. They’ve both been open about their personal struggles, but it hasn’t been easy when their lives are under such heavy scrutiny. Despite their issues, they are still living together and are hopeful things can be fixed.”
As stated above, the pair are living together currently, and trying to work things out.
Amber, however, took to social media to tell her fans that they are likely going to be “shocked” by the upcoming season.
She took to Twitter to let her fans know what will be going on.
“I think a lot of people will be shocked this season. But I feel vindicated!! #trustedmyinstincts love always.”

The cryptic tweet doesn’t reveal a lot about Amber Portwood and Matt’s relationship, as it seems if she had really trusted her instincts, she would have called off the wedding after trying on the dress at the bridal salon.
Many viewers, and even people in Amber’s life, have criticized Matt and their relationship. Tons of viewers think Matt is there just to mooch off of Amber and capitalize on her fame — as he has already successfully had two books published just by being with her.
Matt Baier also contacted Amber Portwood’s co-stars, Farrah Abraham and Jenelle Evans, to compliment them and let them know he was interested in dating them before going after Portwood and settling down with her. Ironically, Farrah Abraham is now one of Matt and Amber’s biggest rivals.
