Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood is getting a warning from her fiancé Matt Baier’s former gal pal, who says the reality star needs to get out of the relationship before it’s too late after the bombshell that Matt may have 7 children was revealed.
According to Radar Online, Teen Mom fans saw Amber Portwood’s baby daddy, Gary Shirley, reveal to her that her fiancé, Matt Bair, has 7 children, when she believed he only had 2 kids. The website claims that Matt, whom Amber met via Twitter after she was released from prison, does have 7 kids and that he owes thousands of dollars in back child support to 5 women whom he’s had children with!
Matt’s former friend, Judy Cornett, claims that the Teen Mom fiancé is bad news, and that Amber Portwood needs to run in the other direction and not marry him if she knows what’s good for her.
Judy Cornett, the founder of a non-profit dedicated to protecting children from sexual predators, claims that she met Matt Baier when he saw her on TV in 2008 and reached out to her.
“He flew to my house in Tampa, and stayed with me for two weeks,” she reveals. “He was very flirtatious and put the charm on, but I wasn’t receptive to it.”
Cornett, who appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, says that after doing a TV gig, producers paid her in cash, which she kept in a white envelope, but after returning to Tampa with Matt, she says the money went missing. Judy reveals that she confronted Matt Baier about it, and he said he didn’t have any money and started crying.
“He went to the front porch and made a series of phone calls, and managed to have enough people wire me the money. It was about $1,500.” Judy then says that she made Teen Mom star Amber Portwood’s current fiancé get into a cab and leave, and that she never saw him again.
However, Cornett does have some words for Amber Portwood after seeing her and Matt Baier together on Teen Mom OG.
“Please understand that this is not a personal vendetta against Matt and I am not trying to create any problems for your TV show. I’m a mother and I also care for you and your sobriety… I am fearful that Matt has not changed. I personally feel that he is still continuing his behavior of conning, manipulating and lying his way through life. He has been searching for that pot of gold and I believe he probably thinks he has found it with you… Please look at the big picture and make the best decision for you and your child. Which would be to get out of it now, before there’s no turning back.”
Meanwhile, sources close to Matt Baier deny the allegations. All the while, Amber Portwood spoke out on Twitter to her Teen Mom fans and critics, supporting her fiancé and saying all will be revealed in the next few weeks on the show.
“After the truth comes out in the next couple weeks I want everyone who ever doubted Matt to apologize. People need to listen and learn before they judge.”
It should be interesting to see this situation play out on Teen Mom OG now that Amber has been given evidence to support that Matt may have 7 children, and that he’s allegedly targeted TV stars in the past.
