Amber Portwood Doses Custody Of Son James

After losing custody of her 4-year-old son James to her ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon, Amber Portwood feels as though her mental condition was “used against” her. Portwood, 32, went Live on Instagram shortly after The Sun reported on Tuesday that the cinematographer, 38, had been granted full physical and legal custody of the infant. The “Teen Mom OG” actress argued that she should not be held liable for mistakes from her “past” as long as she is attempting to improve herself. She also assured her followers that she was staying “positive” and that she was going to “fight this.”

The MTV celebrity gushed about her “wonderful” relationship with Leah, her and Gary Shirley’s 13-year-old daughter. She has been outspoken about her struggles with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. James, according to Portwood, reportedly enjoys their time together and tells her “I love you” frequently. Glennon will now be able to relocate their kid from Indiana to his native California, according to the judgement, but Portwood has been given permission for overnight visits with James, starting at three days each month.

The lighting and camera technician was also instructed to “reach out and weigh the mother’s opinion before making any critical decisions relating to the child’s medical treatment, education, and religion,” according to the judge, who also recommended that she and Glennon undergo monthly drug tests. In May 2018, one year before she and Glennon split up, Portwood gave birth to James. When the reality star was detained for allegedly hitting him with a machete, the former couple broke up in July 2019. Following that, Glennon was given sole legal and joint physical custody with Portwood.

In October of that year, the native of Indiana entered pleas of guilty to domestic battery, criminal recklessness involving a deadly weapon, and domestic battery in the presence of a child under the age of 16. She received a probationary term and was required to take parenting lessons. Following a protracted custody dispute, Portwood was granted three unsupervised visits per month with her youngest kid.
