Teen Mom OG’s Amber Portwood Dumps Matt Baier After Failing Lie Detector Test — Report
A new report claims some serious you-know-what went down between the Teen Mom OG couple this week, which ultimately caused Amber to make her man take a lie detector test. He failed the test, got kicked out of the house, and dumped. Poor guy!
The story comes by way of The Ashley, who says the drama began during Amber and Matt's trip to Los Angeles (she attended the MTV Movie & TV Awards there last Sunday, May 7).
The 26-year-old has been growing suspicious of her 19-years-older boyfriend in recent weeks, especially when an audio tape surfaced in which it seemed Matt was talking to other women on the side.
Amber's family confronted her about the allegations, which finally prompted her to take action and demand a polygraph test. Straight out of an episode of Jerry Springer, but this is real life, people!
The dad of five (ish) apparently failed the questions pertaining to cheating, so the reality star sent Matt on a flight back to Indiana and told him to pack his bags before she gets home.
The source says Amber is still in L.A. and has been doing interviews solo, unlike one they did together earlier this week with Brandi Glanville.
She chatted with Dr. Drew Pinsky's wife, Susan, who gave her a psychic reading on air during her podcast. The psychic reading was very telling, as Amber referred to her relationship in the past tense!
"We were engaged for a couple of years, and we had a venue set up for a wedding October 13,” Amber said. “Some things have happened over the last couple days so I don’t know.”
She also seems to have deleted all traces of her relationship on Instagram, which is never a subtle move.
Fans have been growing suspicious of the supposed "Teen Mom superfan" since Amber first introduced him on the show in 2015. He's got a rap sheet, hit on two of her co-stars on Twitter before reaching out to Amber, and of course lied to his future wife about how many children he has from previous relationships.
She was under the impression he only had two until Gary Shirley showed Amber papers (on camera) proving he has seven children with five separate women, all of whom were demanding child support.
Matt, who moved from Boston to Indiana to be with Amber, has since copped up to having only five kids, and insists he owes zero dollars in child support.
However, the couple has already broken their silence on the report and are denying that they've split. Well, he is, at least.
Read their full statement to The Dirty below:
"No, we are not broken up. There have been very sick, lonely people for the last three years trying to destroy us, and that’s going to take its toll on any relationship.
I absolutely did take a lie detector test to once and for all prove to everybody I’ve never been unfaithful to Amber. Yes, this stuff takes its toll on people.
Amber and I have been through an awful lot worse for the last three years. We’re constantly battling outside forces who try to inject themselves into our relationship. Amber and I will get through this like we always have. We haven’t broken up. Maybe it should have been done a long time ago, but the people that have interjected themselves into our relationship and tried to extort us are being dealt with in the legal system now.”
Her statement to the same site was just a bit more succinct:
"As of now, we are not broken up.”
Whether or not the split rumors are true, let's not forget he's almost twenty years older than her. All the red flags were there and we're glad Amber finally saw them. We're rooting for ya, girl!
Also, we guess this means the 45-year-old's "tell-all" is officially dead...
