New 'Teen Mom' Audio -- Gary's Cover-Up Call

12/30/2010 10:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, desperately tried to get his other chick to cover up another alleged Amber beating that occurred just two weeks ago ... according to a recording obtained by TMZ.


The audio -- recorded Dec. 15 -- captures "Teen Mom" co-star Gary on the phone with a girlfriend named Ashley. He's telling her how to stonewall reporters who got wind of a Dec. 14 incident where Amber allegedly beat him again.

Gary advises Ashley to tell reporters, "No comment, no comment, no comment ..." adding, "every time they leave you alone."

During the call, Gary admits, Amber "f**king hit me." You also hear Gary whisper to a friend in the room that Ashley didn't actually see Amber hit him -- she was outside waiting in a car.

In return for Ashley's silence ... Gary makes this gallant offer to her -- "Maybe one day we can start a family."

We previously reported Amber Portman was arrested and charged with felony domestic battery for allegedly beating up her baby daddy in front of their daughter.

According to the police report filed with the court, Amber acknowledged that her violence was true anger and not staged for the TV show.

One of the officers notes in the report that there were "multiple violent and physical fights between [Amber and Gary]" in which Amber punched, slapped and kicked him.

In the outtakes that were not aired on the MTV show, the baby is clearly in the room watching the violence, according to the police report.

Portwood has since pled not guilty to the charges.

Check out video of one of the incidents below.

Everyone involved in this teen mom crap is nothing but trash..the teen mom, dad, their families and the oh so stupid new girl friend and boy friend as well. Lets all ignore them and not watch the program and hope that with the new year they will just all implode and go away. I do hope that the little girl is placed in a good home with a couple that will be real and loving parents to her and there is not too much physical and mental damaged been done to her at this point. Happy New Year one and all.

As an Amercian businessman in London just before Thanksgiving the subject of these reality shows came up in conversation and Teen Mom in particular. The conversation quickly focused on America's rapid decline in class and intellect. I had to agree. I told the group I was from Canada.

For the individual, who lied being a Canadian. I agree thatthe U.S is focusing in nonsence crap. We have been involving and declining in intellect, however; you in particular should not be embarrased of ur nation. And say yeah, we f***ed up. And get compliments and ideas not run away.. People like you make me sick... That is a good example of an American!!!

Chris (the closet Canadian) expresses the sentiment most all of us are feeling: that America is going down the tubes. Just take a look at the comments posted here; swearing in 3 out of 5 posts and misspelling or typo's in 2 of the 5. Carla... are you paying by the letter to post? 'Your' is not spelled ur. 'Ur' is pronounced "err". Think about it. Chris is right; class and intellect are things (or might I say 'generations') of the past.

Yes it was very wrong of Amber to hit Gary. But Gary is as much to blame. He always threatens to take his daughter away from Amber every time he can't get his way. They both need counseling, and grow up.

She needs to be in prison for assault and then anger management. We need to protect people that are afraid to protect themselves. This violence will be transfered to her children they also have to be place in foster care for there protection. because he cant protect himself how could he protect the children.

I don't give a damn what Gary did or didn't do Amber should not lay a hand on him and in front of her daughter thats even worse. How would she feel GOD forbir, if her daughter ended up with a man who beat her up? Men should not hit women and women should not hit men. Thats the way it needs to be. I don't care what problems they have or have had, all of us women have been cheated on at one point that does not give a right for us to put our hands on the men that cheat on us. Be a woman and walk away. If Amber does not change her child WILL be taken away and she may end up doing jail time of Gary presses charges which I would do it I was him. Amber needs angry management and a good talk on how to handle tuff relationhips because she put herself in thei situation NOT Gary. She could have told him to us a condom or not had sex at all. This is what happens when little girls try to act like grown adults. Amber I wish you all the best and please, please, please get some help. I have that timper side to me as well and it started when I was wrong but you need to control yourself and act like a human being not an animal.

It's only obvious that Amber grew up in a hateful home. Why else portray that with your mate? This is a learned behavior bottom line. I hope Amber goes to jail/prison for a long time- maybe then she will learn that hitting isn't the answer. I pity her and most importantly, her small child.

Although I have never watched this show. This has got to be the worst show in history! I would not watch these animals if you paid me. Tell me why anyone wants to watch trashy people or those other idiots from Jerseywhores! I just don't people have any morals anymore. I would rather do without a tv then to watch something that pays these idiots.

They are both immature brats,she should have had an abortion or given it up for adoption. Sadly that kid will end up just like her parents, poor white trash.
