Original “Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood was released from prison Nov. 4 after spending 17 months locked up on drug charges. One of her castmates, Farrah Abraham, who has had her own run-ins with the law, tells RadarOnline that she thinks Portwood’s imprisonment is all the fault of Gary Shirley, Portwood’s ex and father of her 4-year-old daughter, Leah.
“I’m happy Amber is out of jail. She never deserved to be in jail,” Abraham tells Radar. “Gary antagonized Amber while she was also dealing with stress and handling her bipolar disorder.”
Although Portwood was imprisoned on drug charges, her first encounter with the law came after she was arrested for domestic violence after a physical fight with Shirley was captured by MTV cameras and aired nationwide.
“I hope Amber can now stay away from the pressures of the media and focus on her new, healthier beginning at life,” Abraham says. “I hope Leah can have a loving mother and daughter relationship.
