Amber Portwood Media Making False Assumptions Exclusive
“Me and Gary have shared joint custody,” Portwood exclusively told us. “He has her primarily simply because we didn’t want to take her out of her school district. If so she would have to change schools and we didn’t want to do that to her.”
“As of now I can see Leah whenever I want,” Portwood elaborated. “We have 50/50 so we simply communicate with each other.”
So where did these reports come from? Portwood explained that, “The media just simply assumed we went to court. We’ve never been to court. We talked like adults face to face and I’m the one who said I would pay Gary support simply because our difference in income.”
“And of course I love booboo and I always help whenever she needs something,” Portwood added.
She wrapped talking about yesterday’s “news” with telling us that, “Me and Gary have a good relationship and we will continue to support each other as Leah’s parents.”
Portwood also told us before going about her fiance, dishing that, “Me and Matt are amazing and we are looking to buy a home closer to Leah so we can be more available whenever she needs me.”
We adore Portwood and are thrilled to hear things in her life are going so well, regardless of what the media is trying to depict.
