‘Teen Mom OG’ Star Amber Portwood Addresses Reunion Fight: ‘Stay Open-Minded’



Amber Portwood is breaking her silence after getting into an altercation with Teen Mom OG costar Farrah Abraham while taping the season 7 reunion show on Saturday, October 22. In an Instagram video posted on Monday, October 24, the reality star warns her fans about the rumors that are circulating on the internet.

“There’s a lot of rumors going around about what happened on the reunion show,” a newly blonde Portwood, 26, tells the camera. “Stay open-minded and understand that 90 percent of what you’re reading isn’t true … I don’t know … what to say — because I’m not allowed to say things contractually about what happened on the show. But, um, know that a lot of things you’re reading … is all false, it’s all negative.”

In a second Instagram video, Portwood says that she’s excited for the reunion special to air so that fans can see what really happened.

After a report surfaced online that Portwood and Abraham, 25, got into a physical altercation on set of the MTV hit docuseries’ reunion show, multiple sources confirmed the incident to Us Weekly.

According to Real Mr. Housewife, Dr. Drew, who was moderating the reunion, asked Abraham about her boyfriend, Simon Saran, who recently called Portwood’s fiance, Matt Baier, a “pedophile” in a series of Snapchat videos.

Saran was reportedly mid-apology when Abraham interrupted and said, “Well, [Baier] does kind of look like a pedophile.”

Portwood then, according to the site, stormed the stage to defend her man when Abraham’s dad, Michael, also got involved.

Saran also took to social media after the fight, tweeting that Portwood is a “hippo” and that Baier is an “old creepy guy.”

Teen Mom OG airs on MTV on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
