Controversial Teen Mom star Amber Portwood will maintain supervised visits once a week with her daughter Leah, has exclusively learned.

The 21-year-old mother had a review of the custody arrangements set forth by Child Protective Services between her and baby daddy Gary Shirley on Wednesday and no changes were made, even though Portwood was released just one week prior from a 72-hour psych hold at St. Johns Hospital in Indiana after her attempted suicide.

“There were no changes and they did not mention Amber’s suicide attempt during the hearing,” Gary’s attorney, Jeff Lockwood, told

“If she goes into the rehab program she can be re-evaluated for custody of Leah, but CPS will have to monitor how the treatment goes.”

As previously reported Amber told Star magazine, in the issue that goes on sale this week, that she will be entering a California treatment facility for “anger control issues and depression.”

“Gary has custody and Amber has supervised visits once a week,” Lockwood said.

“It is staying status quo for the time being. I’m not sure how the visitation will go for her once she is in the treatment program.”
