We do not know the nature of the visit, however, sources say CPS has serious concerns about the welfare of baby Leah, whose mom, Amber Portwood, is now charged with felony child endangerment, among other crimes.

Earlier today, Amber was seen exiting a counseling facility near her home in Indiana.

1. someone needs to teach her how to do her eyebrows
2. she's probably getting back with him thinking the charges will be dropped or she will get a light sentence. Then she will dump him again after flipping out.

How does a man continue to be a man while claiming his wife/girlfriend beat him??? Of course women have and will continue to hit men, and visa versa, but that's a big ole boy there and first thought is "I might get some attention" which he has.

He reminds me of the pap that got knocked down by Janine what's her name in the custody battle, with a frikin cup of coffee. Reminds me of a crack head in a store trying to fall down to get some money......

I totally agree with #12: If the situation was reversed, the reactions would be different and the internet would run red with all the- "women are perennial victims"- bleeding hearts bleeding themselves to death! The bottom line is: DV against men is NEVER taken seriously.

This is complete garbage! What is there to debate? I can't believe people are saying this would only be serious if she turned her anger on the child! This is the problem with DV issues: DV against men is NEVER taken seriously, as if it's a woman's right or some such crap! But, . . . . let him raise a finger to defend himself and see how quickly the cops and authorities get involved to take him down and convince her what a "victim" she is. She needs to do more than grow up; Her ass needs to be arrested and do time the same way they make men do - for even less!

Anyone who watched Teen Mom has serious about these two idiots raising a child! They couldn't raise a Pet Rock let alone a human being! You certainly have to question the sanity of anyone who allows their lunacy to be filmed and broadcast to millions! Don't these two understand that they are morally bankrupt and the lowest form of s*** for screaming and being physically abusive in front of a CHILD!?!

She needs to be hospitalized on a Rogaine intravenous drip for her eyebrows. Get him gastric bypass or on TMZ Fit Club. THEN they will be fit to raise a child.

cps hates men, if the woman can't raise the kid then neither can the father, of which gary is a great dad.

Ok, TMZ - Jim K really doesn't care about this crap, so you should stop covering it. Jim, is there anything else you don't care about that TMZ needs to know about so they can conform their reporting to your particular preferences? Do you require an apology for reporting on this story without first seeking your approval?

I don't understand why the media is even giving this dumb girl attention! All it's teaching her is that if she acts out then she will receive attention. Please stop glorifying criminals and teenage mothers.

What I don't understand is how a film crew etc. could stand around and watch this and not intervene. I couldn't watch something like this and do nothing. Are people morally bankrupt these days?

It's about time we saw a woman beating the crap out of her man! Women should beat the crap out of their men! She shouldn't have done it in front of their child, but more women should beat up on men!
