Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, mother of 2-year-old daughter Leah, would like the world to think she is turning over a new leaf, but it seems the pressures of fame have made Amber’s life — and Leah’s — worse than anyone knows. In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Amber’s most recent boyfriend, Clinton Yunker, thinks the 20-year-old has an addiction to pills and that it’s so bad, she nearly “overdosed” in front of Leah.
“She mixed more than her usual dose of Tramadol and Klonopin,” Clinton tells In Touch. “She was tripping out right in front of Leah, who was in the living room with her.”
Sadly, several Teen Moms are falling prey to the pitfalls of fame, whether it’s hooking up with the wrong guys, acting like a diva or succumbing to expensive and potentially deadly behavior.
“Jenelle [Evans] loves to ‘look the part’ of a TV star and spends a lot on herself,” an insider tells In Touch. “She wants TV audiences and magazines to think she’s a good mom… but when the cameras are off, she acts as if she cares more about partying than she does about her son.”
