Amber Portwood, who was released from her notorious prison sentence nearly two years ago, thought her legal troubles were far behind her.

But RadarOnline.com can reveal that the sober Teen Mom OG star, 24, was slapped with an eviction lawsuit on April 13.

Indianapolis reality management firm Realty Wealth Advisors LLC claimed that Portwood fell behind on the monthly rent for her four-bedroom Ingalls, Indiana, home.

"My clients just want her out of there," the firm's attorney Joseph Guy said.

Just two weeks later, the plaintiff dismissed the case, a representative from Madison county court exclusively tells Radar.

A source close to the MTV queen calls the lawsuit "laughable" and a simple misunderstanding.

"Amber was traveling a lot last month, and thought she had already paid through April," the family insider explains to Radar. "The management company never called her or said anything, so she had no idea she owed money until she saw the eviction story in the local newspaper!"

Upon reading the news, she immediately paid the remainder of the year's rent balance with a cashier's check, the source insists.

"It was a big deal over nothing," the insider says, adding that the lawsuit was likely a publicity ploy. "It seems like the company just wanted attention."

The Never Too Late author moved into her new digs last summer, and showed off her gorgeous home to Radar in a photo exclusive.

She lives with fiancé Matt Baier, 43, and has frequent sleepovers with 6-year-old daughter Leah.
