Amber Portwood Ordered to Pay Rental Company for Lying About Income
Teen Mom Amber Portwood's legal situation doesn't seem to be improving — although at least the stakes aren't quite as high anymore. After narrowly evading a jail sentence for violating her parole, the troubled Teen Mom is back in the headlines after an Indiana judge ordered her to pay a rental company money that she owes them for misrepresenting her financial situation in an application for low-income housing.
While Amber was in jail, the rental company in charge of the government-subsidized low-income property where Amber was residing sued her for eviction after discovering that she was well beyond the "low income" bracket required to be a resident, since she earned over $280,000 in 2010. Amber failed to respond to the suit, prompting a judge to rule in the rental company's favor. Luckily, the amount due is only $673 — a relatively small sum given her Teen Mom salary.
Good luck to Amber sorting out this latest legal hardship!
