According to sources at Radar Online:

“Late this morning (11:34 a.m.), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive. According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life. The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation. An Anderson police source also confirms that the call was not made by Amber at her home, but by “a relative” at a different location, who advised the authorities to check on Amber. A source told Star [magazine] that the mother of Amber’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Gary Shirley, made the phone call …

… to the police.

The source has provided Star with further details of the dramatic scene at Amber’s home. “Two policemen arrived, found her face-up on the couch and immediately called for an ambulance. When two EMT workers arrived, they removed the rope that Amber had loosely knotted around her neck. They tried speaking with her, but she was in and out of consciousness and couldn’t respond; she was just moaning. They gave her an oxygen mask, put her on a gurney, and rushed her to the hospital.”

So, wow. Pretty heavy stuff. She tried to hang herself? That’s really horrible, actually. I mean, DID she try to hang herself? Or did she just loosely knot the rope around her neck and decide, hey, I’m gonna lay down on the couch and rethink this whole thing.

I have no doubts that we’ll be hearing the whole story on this business sooner rather than later, but I definitely hope – above all – that her daughter will indefinitely be put in a safe environment, free from threats of violence, death, and mental illness. The whole situation is a total shame, but it’s the baby that really matters at the end of the day. Maybe harsh, but definitely true.

  • i dont know if it´s a cry for help or a cry for attention… i don´t mean to be cynical but who really knows?

  • Fuck me, who cares? This was “breaking news” here in central Indiana.. And the locals wonder why the rest of the country views them as dumbass hicks!

  • Wouldn’t have bothered me…one less piece of trash. But I hope she gets the help she needs and stops being a piece of trash in which case there’s no reason for her to kill herself.

  • I am still totally lost as to why we are still talking about this chick. She got knocked up, had a show that was suppose to prove she “learned her lesson” or at least how hard life was after being so careless… ok… where’s the celebrity? All I see is another stupid high school kid with no parental supervision. Makes for good Girls Gone Wild but celebrity? nuh huh.

  • Really? Attempts suicide? Someone who wants to kill herself, will just do it, all she is doing is wanting attention. Just like when she was on teen mom, she used to yell at her poor boyfriend if he didn’t do what she wanted, she would kill herself. She is not asking for help. She just wants attention. I wonder how she is going to do in prison? Another thing that didn’t go the way she wanted it to, was drug rehab. So she quit rehab and now has to go to jail for 5 yrs. Maybe in prison she will learn that the world doesn’t revolve around her. She should have been thinking about her daughter, she is a terrible mom. The world should STOP reporting on her, STOP giving her attention, if this happens she will go away.
