Amber Portwood has maintained her sobriety ever since she was released from prison in 2013 after serving 17 months for drug possession. Now that the Teen Mom OG star has gotten her life back on track, she’s ready to fight for custody of her daughter Leah with her ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley.
“She’s hired a lawyer to fight for full custody,” a source told Life & Style. “She feels she’s gotten her life together and deserves a real relationship with Leah.”
But Gary, who has full custody of the 6-year-old, doesn’t agree. “Gary laughed hysterically when he heard that Amber wants to take him to court,” the insider said. “He said after all the crap Amber’s done, no judge will give her custody.”
If Amber wants her daughter back, she should be prepared to fight because Gary is “not giving her up.” The source added, “Gary doesn’t think Amber would do a better job taking care of Leah.”
