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.

When is the stupidity of reality TV going to stop. Our teens, 20 somethings are obsessed with all this stupidity and don't know what is really going on in this country or the rest of the world.

i think the little girl will be okay. you would be surprised on how resillient young children are, but if these things are allowed to continue on as she grows then there will be issues. Any STABLE adults in this child's family should intervene right away as neither of her parents are mature enough to raise this child.

I remember when MTV was about music, and some decent reporting on relevant topics. Now, it's how to make the most money by exploiting the inbred idiots that make up their viewing demographic.
What HAS happened to the USA, as a nation? Are we really so without basic human decency and dignity that we actually consider watching clueless children, who have children with other clueless children, deteriorating before our eyes, to be entertainment? And what ever happened to actual WRITING-you know- with scripts, plots, actors, some kind of moral bottom line- instead of all this reality crap?
We have the embarrassing mess we created. So- how do we clean it up?

What a shame TMZ staff does not use proper English. What is "Amber Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley"? Does that mean Gary Shirley is a baby that is also a daddy? I believe it should be - baby's daddy. If the media doesn't use proper English, they encourage our youth to speak like idiots.

This country has been in steady decline since 2000, as far as class is concerned. People don't hold the doors for people, take time to spell things correctly, say thank you, and refrain from swearing around children. It as if people stopped caring about their behavior and it's effect on those around them. The youth of today lack personality and manors, with the small percentage that do exude those traits lauded for being special. It is a shame we have come to this as a society, but at least I have the comfort in knowing my children will be one of the special ones.

Domestic violence should never be tolerated, ignored or overlooked - regardless of the victim and their personal attributes - good or bad.

Gary is clearly a victim of the violence dished out by Amber. Amber needs counseling to resolve the issues. If not the child involved will most likely be the victim or perpetrator of violence when she grows up.

Domestic Violence is SERIOUS. There is never justification. Women and men die everyday at the hands of someone they knew and loved.

It is time that everyone stand up and STOP THE CIRCLE OF VIOLENCE!

I agree with Chris and Reality check. Has texting taught people that incorrect spelling is okay? Is constant profanity online some type of popular trend? Are people no longer able to comment on various subjects without trash talk. I don't blame the guy who said he was Canadian, our pop culture and the rest of our culture has come to be based on the likes of reality shows. Sad.
