Stemming off of Amber Portwood attempting to commit suicide, she is ready to seek treatment in rehab now, according to Star Magazine. The tabloid notes that Portwood is going to go get help for “anger control” and “depression” related issues.
“I’m on medication at the moment to just help me relax. I’m in a vulnerable state right now and I know people want a lot of answers,” Portwood tells Star. “Before I go to California I’m pursuing help with a psychiatrist.” In the interview, Portwood says that he daughter Leah is keeping her strong through all of this. Many critics of Portwood have stated that most of the issues come from her relationship with her boyfriend Gary Shirley, who she is constantly fighting and arguing with, as shown on their MTV reality series Teen Mom.
