Amber Portwood made a shocking confession she was once “beating people up” and “going to jail” amid her latest arrest scandal, RadarOnline.com can report.

The mom of two dropped the bombshell on the July 8 episode of Teen Mom OG, detailing her past mental illness and how it had landed her behind bars in the past.

"Obviously since the day we started this show, I've been f**king nuts, so I mean, come on," she seemingly joked to costars Maci Bookout, Cheyenne Floyd and Catelynn Lowell during a Florida girls' getaway.

The episode filmed before her 29th birthday in May, just two months before RadarOnline.com exclusively reported she was arrested for allegedly hitting her baby daddy Andrew Glennon while he was holding their 1-year-old son, James.

On the show, she also admitted to ditching her medications so she could drink freely during the trip — which Catelynn warned her against doing.

Scroll through Radar’s gallery for Amber’s shocking confession about her mental illness, and trouble with the law.
