Earlier this month, Andrew opened up to Us Weekly exclusively, claiming that the reality star threatened him repeatedly during their relationship.

“The financial abuse and ‘familial’ mindset of Amber has never been more clearer [sic] than it is now,” the producer told Us. “Any and all money coming in, even in my name, ‘belonged’ to her and that’s how she saw it. She’s made that very clear and the threats were a constant part of life with her.”

Andrew went on to explain that all he wants is a happy family, but she had different priorities.

“She was more concerned with her own agenda and her actions have proven exactly that. I put everything into the family account because I wanted a happy and provided for family,” he said. “All profits went into the family account and spent on family travels, health expenses, Amber’s jewelry, clothing, food and life.”

The two-night Teen Mom OG reunion airs on MTV Monday, September 2, at 9 p.m. ET and Tuesday, September 3, at 8 p.m. ET.
