The on-and-off-again boyfriend of Teen Mom Amber Portwood banished the MTV star outside – in her underwear – after a late night fight, a just-released 911 call has revealed.
“My now ex boyfriend is pushing me away… (he) pushed me outside in my underwear in the cold,” an upset Portwood, 20, told authorities.
The argument between Portwood and Shirley, 23, took place in the early hours of October 20, just after midnight, following a misunderstanding over a text message her ex-lover had received.
Here’s how the call went down:
Portwood is heard telling the operator, “My ex boyfriend’s pushing me away; he’s pushing me outside in my underwear. His name’s Gary Shirley.
“I’m Amber Portwood, there is actually an investigation on me for battery from about six months ago because I’m the Amber Portwood on Teen Mom, but I need someone out here because he pushed me outside in my underwear and I don’t know what’s going on to be honest with you,” she said.
Amber continued, “I can’t keep my mouth closed anymore. He is in my house, I’m sorry.”
“OK, we’ll get them out there,” the operator said.
She replied, “Thank you so much.”
Here is the entire transcript of the call:
Operator: “Anderson 911 what’s your emergency?”
Amber: “Hi my name is Amber Portland I need someone as soon as possible at [address redacted].”
Operator: “What’s going on?”
Amber: “Um, my now ex boyfriend pushing me away… pushed me outside in my underwear in the cold.”
Operator: “What’s his name?”
Amber: “His name is Gary Shirley?”
Operator: “Derek Shirley?”
Amber: “Gary Shirley.”
Operator: “What’s your name?”
Amber: “I’m Amber Portland. There is actually an investigation on me for battery from about six months ago because I’m the Amber Portland on Teen Moms but I need someone out here because he pushed me outside in my underwear and I don’t know what’s going on to be honest with you.”
Operator: “Is he outside with you?”
Amber: “I can’t keep my mouth closed anymore. He is in my house mam, I’m sorry.”
Operator: “Ok we will get them out there.”
Amber: “Thank you so much.”
According to the police report taken that night, the responding officer wrote he “saw no redness on her left arm where she advised Gary grabbed her”.
Sheriffs calmed the couple down, drove Portwood back to her own house in Anderson and no arrests were made.
The pair has had ongoing legal problems, as investigators have been looking at both in connection with varied domestic violence-related incidents.
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Portwood has agreed to allow Indiana’s child protective services to monitor her for up to six months in the wake of her televised assault on Shirley, which sparked hundreds of public complaints questioning her suitability to be a mother.
In the September episode that aired on MTV, Portwood hit and kicked Shirley repeatedly, leading to a flood of calls to the state’s child abuse watchdog.
