Matt Baier, who dated “Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood from 2013 to 2017, said he reconnected with his former flame after MTV showed her reentering their home in Geist, Indiana, after it was vacated by her ex-boyfriend Andrew Glennon. Amber accused Andrew of leaving the house in a mess and Gary Shirley – the father of Amber’s 14-year-old daughter Leah – said the house smelled of urine.
Matt has largely stayed out of the spotlight since his tumultuous split from Amber, but he was inspired to reach out to his ex after watching the ‘Teen Mom’ scene.
“I was just talking to Amber about the house thing.” he tweeted on November 16th. “First time we’ve spoken to each other in a long time. It was great to catch up and I think 5 years was long enough without talking. She agreed. 1 interview only. If you are interested, DM me.”
Matt was “disturbed” by what he saw
Matt indicated that he spoke up because Amber needed someone who knows the “real her” to speak to the public. “People see a small selection of reality stars. What is shown sells.” he said. “I promised I’d only talk if she agreed. So if people want to hear it, I’m ready. Only 1 time. If they don’t, that’s okay too.”
Matt proposed to Amber, but the “Teen Mom” star ended the engagement when Matt struggled with his sobriety and infidelity.
Matt felt bad seeing the condition of Amber’s dream home.
“The thing with the house just bothered me a lot, so we communicated in a friendly way.” Matt tweeted. “No hard feelings at all.”
Andrew denies leaving Amber’s house in ruins
Andrew lived in Amber’s home for three years while the court decided what would happen to their son, 4-year-old James.
In July, an Indiana judge granted Andrew full guardianship, allowing him to vacate the house and move to his native state of California.
MTV cameras followed Amber as she returned home for the first time in three years, and she said she was disgusted by what she saw. Teen Mom appeared to have stains on the carpets and stains on the walls.
Andrew denied leaving the house unfit.
“The day Andrew left, the house was being viewed,” a source said The sun. “Several people saw how things were and that everything was fine.”
“Andrew is notorious for documenting everything,” the source said The sun. “The condition in which the house was left was of course filmed and photographed.”
However, during the episode, Amber was shocked at the condition of the house. She couldn’t believe her 4 year old son lived there. Gary said Leah would never live in a place like that and that no child should live like that. Leah joked that CPS should have called her mother’s ex when she saw the state of the property.
