Teen Mom OG Reunion: Amber Portwood’s Ex Gary Shirley Admits to Dating a Married Woman


Ummm, say what? In a sneak peek from the Teen Mom OG reunion, Amber Portwood’s ex Gary Shirley drops a major bomb. Amber’s baby daddy, who recently welcomed a daughter with his girlfriend Kristina, reveals that his new relationship got off to a rocky start for one big reason — Kristina was married when they started dating. 

“Married and separated [is] what I thought, but [she] was not,” Gary tries to explain to Dr. Drew as audience members gasp.

“So she was cheating on her husband?” the host asks. 

“Yes, with me. But I wasn’t aware of the situation,” Gary continues.
