Amber Portwood is reportedly sticking by Matt Baier, despite his recent comments on Teen Mom OG and allegedly failed lie detector test earlier this month.
According to a new report, the Teen Mom OG star’s decision to remain in her relationship with Baier, who recently labeled her brother, Shawn Portwood, a “f***ing f****t,” has caused friction between the siblings and led Shawn to cancel his upcoming trip to New York City.
On May 22, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup told readers that Shawn had planned to travel to the Big Apple to appear on the Teen Mom OG Season 6B reunion special. However, after watching the events of the season play out, he has decided to call off his trip.
As for his reportedly failed lie detector test, the outlet claimed Matt Baier underwent a second test after he and Amber Portwood returned to Indiana from Los Angeles and that test could be featured on the upcoming seventh season of Teen Mom OG.
While Amber Portwood has stayed coy in regard to her relationship status online, she has shared a few cryptic tweets.
In one, the reality star wrote, “I think a lot of people will be shocked this season. But I feel vindicated!! #trustedmyinstincts love always.”
In another, she said, “Listen I’m not scared to be alone… I think people are forgetting all my struggles. I’m not just some little naive girl.. nothing but love.”
During an appearance on Brandi Glanville Unfiltered earlier this month, Amber Portwood and Matt Baier spoke of their up and down romance, revealing that they break up and make up frequently. The couple also noted that their splits typically last just a few hours.
“He’s been back to Massachusetts a couple times and came back because we love each other,” Amber Portwood said. “Like it ain’t nothing. But we get through it. Either, you move on because somebody did something in their past, or, you know, you stay with them, you know?… And this relationship – we’ve been to couple’s counseling.”
“We’re true life partners because of that,” Matt Baier added.
Amber Portwood and Matt Baier were recently seen together during a Teen Mom OG after show and during filming, audience members were reportedly treated to some behind the scenes drama, which one particular person spoke about during an interview with The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
“The way they edited it made her look pretty calm, but those of us who were in the audience saw that she was very angry, very defensive and in a pissy mood,” the audience member recalled on May 23. “She also mentioned about 100 times that she’s from Indiana so no one should f**k with her.”
During another scene from the Teen Mom OG after show, Amber Portwood was on the stage only with host Nessa Diab and at that time, she appeared to be quite defensive of her relationship choices with Matt Baier.
“[Amber Portwood] kept repeating that she’s not naive and that everyone on social media says she’s so dumb for staying with Matt, but that she’s a lot smarter than everyone thinks. She said she knows everything he’s done and she admitted that she’s kicked him out three times, although she had never mentioned that before while they were filming.”
