Amber Portwood Evicted For Scamming Her Landlord

February 16, 2012 01:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Teen Mom‘s Amber Portwood was arrested and thrown behind bars back in December, and now, the troubled star has been evicted from her home. Why? Apparently, the MTV star scammed her landlord! Read on for the scoop.

Teen Mom’s Amber Portwood just can’t keep it together these days, can she? Recently, she was tossed in the slammer, and rumors have been flying that she will be heading back to rehab. But those issues are not the only thing that Amber has been dealing with lately – she has also been evicted from her home! TMZ reports that according to a copy of Amber’s lease, which they claim to have obtained, it states that the home Portwood was renting in Anderson, Indiana had been subsidized by the state’s Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program.

While most us may think she belongs in a place like that, the problem is that she lied about her income. In order to qualify for the housing, Amber Portwood claimed that she made $10,000 per year, when in fact, she made $280,000 back in 2010. Once her landlord learned this, Amber was evicted from the home, although none of that matters as she is currently still in jail. Guess she will have to find a new place to live when and if she gets out, huh?

Now, we have to ask….why on earth would Amber Portwood be stupid enough to lie about her income? Beats us. Comment and share your thoughts below!

    it is the only way the life and money sucking system leach knows how to function. She wouldn’t know how to pay for something if someone dropped a quarter million in cash in her lap and said here “boo-boo” go spend. I bet she still gets food stamps.

    @D Her – it has nothing to do with growing up poor. Some people grow up rich and are still liars and scammers, while there are honest people who are poor. Amber’s a criminal and a liar, and should be treated as such, and never get any public aid again. She obviously can’t use it correctly, same as Amanda Clayton who won the lottery and still got food stamps.

    I’m sure she probably spent all that money and is now broke, well before she went to jail…lol. So she probably figured that no one would care especially if she is broke. We have raised our kids with the selfish mentality of “I’m gonna get everything I possibly can for as little effort as possible.

    Being on Teen Mom ruined Amber’s life.If she wasnt on that show, she wouldnt have gone to jail and caught a felony charge for beating up her boyfriend(Gary didnt press charges, the state did after seeing it on tv).Also if she wasnt on the show, she would still be able to live in her apartment because she wouldnt have been making alot of money.Poor girl keeps screwing up…
