Teen Mom Amber Portwood ready to quit MTV show after 14 years as she copes with losing custody of son James, 4

TEEN Mom Amber Portwood is ready to quit the MTV show after 14 years on air as she copes with losing custody of her son, The U.S. Sun has exclusively learned.

One source told The U.S. Sun that Amber, 32, has even told friends she’s already said goodbye to the long-running MTV series.

The source claimed: “Amber has told people she is absolutely out at the show, that she already quit and gave notice to MTV.”

The source added she isn’t sure of her exact next move yet, but is considering venturing into real estate and flipping houses.

However, a second source told The U.S. Sun that Amber has not officially left the show yet, and is still weighing her options.

Amber has had a tough go this past year, after losing custody of her four-year-old son James to her ex, Andrew Glennon.

Andrew and the toddler have since moved to California, far from Amber’s native Indiana.


Andrew was granted sole custody of James in July and has since relocated with him to his mother’s $5million estate in Malibu – more than 2,000 miles away from Amber’s Indiana home.

Amber opened up about how she’s feeling since the custody loss in part two of the Teen Mom: The Next Chapter reunion special that aired last month.

After a brief recap of season one, Dr. Drew asked Amber: “So what are your thoughts as you watch that?”

The Teen Mom star appeared disinterested in the question as she responded: “Uhh, just ready to not be here.”

Confused, the host repeated: “You’re ready to not be here? What do you mean?”

Refusing to engage, Amber replied: “Don’t want to deal with that right now.”

The host inquired further, asking: “Don’t want to deal with the James thing?

Amber flatly answered: “All of that. All of it. All of it was horrible.”


Amber has appeared on MTV since she welcomed her now 14-year-old daughter, Leah, with her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, in a 2009 episode of 16 & Pregnant.

Her struggles with mental health and addiction were extensively covered on the show, as was her stint in prison.

Over ten years ago, the star served 17 months behind bars on drug charges.

After her release in 2013, she fought to remain sober, reconnect with her daughter, and resume her studies in college.

She openly struggled with trolls slamming her parenting decisions and mental health battles caught on camera.

She said in 2021: “Opinions of people who are just negative and ignorant, it doesn’t matter because the only opinion that really matters is yours.”
