Troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood ditched motherly duties and chose to spend last Sunday partying with a jailbird friend and paparazzi sent to Indiana to photograph her, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The young mom, 20, met her cellmate when she spent 24 hours in jail after she was arrested on charges stemming from her alleged attack on ex-boyfriend Gary Shirley.
So good is their new friendship, the jailbirds went to local sports bar Buffalo Wild Wings in Anderson, Indiana.
“Amber was partying and drinking over New Year’s weekend,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“She hung out with her jailmate and two paparazzos. It seems like her new friend is a bad influence and probably not someone Amber should be hanging out with."
With Amber under the legal drinking age, she wasn’t able to get drinks at the bar but did celebrate her freedom later at a local hotel.
“She got drunk with the paparazzi and she even hooked up with one of them,” the source said.
“She spent the night and then the next day they went to IHOP for breakfast.”
Adding to the drama, Shirley -- who recently talked about getting back together with his ex -- found out about the booze-filled fest and that she romanced another man.
Amber won back primary custody of her two-year-old daughter Leah, after months of controversy following her physical fight with Shirley, which was caught on MTV cameras.
As for where Leah was when Amber was out and about, RadarOnline.com can only confirm the little girl was not with her father.
