Following a disturbing Instagram Live rant — where she seemingly confirmed that she will be seeking relationship counseling with her on-again, off-again fiancé Matt Baier on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars — Amber posted a concerning photo of broken skin on her knuckle that seemed to have happened while she was throwing a punch.
“Battle wounds,” the 27-year-old wrote in the caption, adding the hashtag “#DontSlideDownAfterYouPunch.”
Fans started speculating in the comments, and many of them quickly assumed that Matt was on the receiving end of the punch that Amber had mentioned in her post, until finally, she decided to respond to the comments herself.
“I've done MMA for years? I had a session today? Why are people so hateful and weird?? Send love not hate,” she wrote in the comments.
But the fans’ speculation wasn’t too far off, considering the mom-of-one has a history of domestic violence. Viewers remember the intense fights that she used to get into with her ex-fiance Gary Shirley — who is also the father of her eight-year-old daughter Leah. Amber has since admitted that she was high on drugs during those altercations.
During her NSFW Instagram Live rant earlier this week, Amber did reveal a shocking detail that Teen Mom fans might not have known — not only was she an aggressor of domestic violence, but she’s also been a victim of it too.
“I’ve been through domestic violence, I was the one on the other end with the domestic violence — it went both ways. However, I never opened up my mother f--king mouth about anybody ever f--king hitting me — because that’s what a real woman does.”
Her Teen Mom OG co-star Simon Saran—who is involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with her nemesis Farrah Abraham—spoke out against Amber’s view of what makes a “real woman.”
A real woman opens up about domestic violence. Don't listen to that bimbo. You can save someone's life later down the road. #TeenMomOG— Simon (@SimonSaran) June 14, 2017
“A real woman opens up about domestic violence. Don't listen to that bimbo. You can save someone's life later down the road,” he wrote.
Back in April, Amber’s violent past came back to haunt her as photos of Matt surfaced online, in which he had what appeared to be scratch marks and a black eye from Amber’s alleged abuse. But he has since spoken out and called the rumors “vicious and completely false.”
