New Video -- 'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Unloads!

12/29/2010 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a video of "Teen Mom" Amber Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, getting an earful from the accused felon ... but the video raises serious questions about Shirley himself.

122910_gary_shirley3_video
The video, which was shot by a friend in April, shows Shirley on the phone with Amber, as she rails on him.  Far from looking like a victim, Shirley makes sure his friend captures the diatribe in all its glory.

At times Shirley and his friend are laughing at Amber, who sounds genuinely upset.

The police report detailing the violence that started months before this video was shot -- and continued after it -- notes Amber claimed it was not done for the TV show but was authentic anger. 

So we want to know: Do you think Gary was really a "victim" of violence or was he playing it up for the camera ... as he seems to be in this video. And if so, should Amber be prosecuted?

Ok, let me start by saying that I have always thought Amber was a piece of trash. BUT this guy is no better. He reminds me of an arrogant worthless creep (who was a serial cheater and a welfare bum) I went out with when I was 17. Not only was the guy abusive, but he would be smug and laugh when I was genuinely upset. Amber needs to get away from him and work on putting her life on the right track. It's not too late for her to make something of herself, and this idiot clown is not going to be of any benefit to her. Dump him once and for all, Amber!

you know I watched the episode on her bday and his friend and him started a fight with her on purpose I think they are both guilty of being loosers.....she should get treated like any abuser (JAIL) but he is also at fault for baiting her just for tv!!!

I THINK BOTH THESE PARENTS NEED COUNSELING. HE THINKS ITS FUNNY THAT SHE IS GETTING ANGRY. CPS BETTER KEEP A EYE ON THIS FAMILY. MAYBE HER CHILDHOOD WAS BAD. MOST IMPORTANT CPS NEEDS TO PROTECT THE CHILD. ITS TO BAD HER CHILD HAS TO GROW UP WITH ALL THE FIGHTING AND DRAMA. SHE BETTER GET HER ASS TO COUNSELING IF SHE LOVES HER CHILD.

from 16 and pregnant and on these two have been complete twits to each other. They are loud verbally abusive and physically abusive. They are not good parents and it's Lia who will suffer in the end when the cycle repeats. BOTH need parenting classes not jail time and BOTH need to stop blaming each other for everything. Grow up, learn responsibity and show some respect for each other.

These two are such losers. Amber is a mentally sick psychotic bitch that needs to be put in a padded room in a straight jacket on. Gary needs to get off his lazy ass and get a job and lose some weight. Poor Leah, I feel bad for that little girl, what a life she has in store for her with these two as her parents. She would be better off with someone else. God bless her little heart.

They should probably just stay away from each other. Poor kid stuck in the middle. Horrible way to live in this world between two parents that clearly have problems. He's an ass and she has anger problems..no bueno

I don't think "playing it up for the camera" is a real issue when considering the physical violence. Acting or not, he wasn't about to turn around and smack her in the face like she deserved after she started going crazy on him. Either way, she took advantage of the situation and expressed violence in front of her child. By the way, it's nice that her mother was there to bail her out of jail - Where was she when her daughter was SIXTEEN AND PREGNANT? Reading these articles is the only interaction I have with that show. It makes me sick. Children having children. Some girls are surprisingly mature enough to handle it, even though they shouldn't, but most of these girls clearly are not.

He's only laughing because is friend is laughing at him for being pathetic enough to want to stay with this crazy girl. He's trying to save face by laughing at the sappy stuff he's telling her.

He was obviously laughing because his friend is taping the conversation. Not to mention this was probably the twentieth phone call from Amber that day where she is yelling and mad and they were sick of it. Most guys don't function on an emotional level, and it's best to talk to them without yelling, screaming, or crying. Plus she's a lunatic.

does this fat-ass ever change his stupid shirt or get off of his butt and exercise? I find it hilarious that someone morbidly obese can wear a football t-shirt. leah should be taken away for child endangerment and sent to a family that can feed her without making her as fat as her father.

This girl definitely has some anger issues to be addressed and the main concern here should be the child. With that said, why is no one talking about the fact that this guy was 21 years old when he knocked her up at 15 or 16? Last I heard statutory rape is a crime.

He only laughs because his friend is there, and he is trying to look like he has it under control. But he is tearing up you can see it! Amber has a major anger issue, she has gone off on him MANY times, not saying that he is father of the year or anything, but you can't solve your problems with your fist...she should be treated the same as everyone else, domestic violence is domestic violence, whether there are cameras rolling or not...
