Last week, a crazy story began circulating the Internet that Teen Mom Amber Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, was getting a little too cozy with the babysitter. We chose to ignore the gossip and give Gary his privacy — plus, the last time we checked he was single and free to make his own choices, right?

But now Gary is speaking out about the rumors, setting the record straight about the sitter scandal via Twitter.

According to RadarOnline, the fling got so serious that baby Leah started calling her caretaker "mommy" — a claim Gary says is completely false. "Leah only calls Amber mother," he wrote today on Twitter.

Not only that, Gary says he doesn't even have a sitter! And even if he did, would it matter if they dated? Gary and Amber broke things off before she entered prison to serve a 5-year sentence for an addiction to opiates, and Gary couldn't be more clear about his relationship status. In case you need clarification, he's single.

Please excuse us while we go make a "Leave Gary Alone" YouTube video.
