Amber Portwood announces she's leaving 'Teen Mom' over "unfair" treatment

UPI News Service, 12/19/2016 

Amber Portwood says she's done with "Teen Mom."

The 26-year-old announced her intent to leave the MTV reality series in a series of tweets on Thursday following her fight with co-star Farrah Abraham on the Season 6 finale.

"Sad to say but I'm not going to be apart of #Teenmomog. The way I have been portrayed and treated is unfair. @MTV sending all my love," Portwood wrote to her 440,000 followers.

"If I was treated fairly it wouldn't be an issue but it's been nothing but disrespect since the reunion show. Which keeps continuing today," she added.

"Nothing has been dealt with or has made me feel any safer to even move on with people who have continuously hidden things from the network."

"The day I'm shown some respect by the people I've worked with for 8 years is the day I'll be back. I've sacrificed a lot for this show. @MTV," the star concluded.

Portwood and Abraham got in a physical altercation in October while filming the Season 6 reunion, which aired in two parts this month.

Portwood was reportedly angry about remarks Abraham and her boyfriend, Simon Saran, made about her fiance, Matt Baier.

"When [host] Dr. Drew mentioned Simon had called Matt a pedophile, it seemed like he was heading in the direction of an apology, claiming it was all in fun. However, Farrah piped in and said, 'Well, he does kind of look like a pedophile,'" a source reported at the time.

"At that point things got out of hand. Amber stormed onstage and started yelling at Farrah. [Farrah's dad Michael] got out of his seat and got in between Farrah and Amber and was yelling at Amber. Then, Matt came onstage and got in between Amber and Michael," the insider added.

Portwood claimed in an Instagram post after Part 2 of the reunion aired that producers "cut out Michael literally screaming in my face calling me a [expletive] and putting his hands on Matts neck!"

She and Abraham came to fame on MTV's "16 & Pregnant" before starring on "Teen Mom."
