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.

First off I give the guy credit for not knocking Amber on her butt, But i feel for the guy, he should press chargers. It's women like this that should get their Butt beat. The way I figure it, if your going to raise your hands to another person, doesn't matter if their male or should be prepared to get hit back. Damn he should at least knock her to the ground or learn to block her punny hits.

She is a deadbeat abusive female who is exploiting the father and his child for unearned income, manic control and victim statas. Typical deadbeat so called mom.

Everyone has the right to privacy...No one has to tell you a thing about what is none of your business...No one has to talk to the press if they do not want you to as in this case with someone who was in a reality show, too...If he doesn't wnat the public to know this, that's his right and yes he can control what you hear and see about him just because he is on TV... No one should release private information to the press about someone else if that other person does not want others to know...Plus, it is against the law to tape another person conversation without their consent...And yes, this right to privacy also covers anyone's "medical" issues...The press feels it's their right to release medical information about anyone without their permissionm but yet if a person doesn't want it released that violates the federal HIPPA law.

Amber should never have access to that child until she undergoes and passes some serious anger managment classes, parenting classes, and relationship classes.
She does NOT deserve Leah.

What do you expect out of trailer trash teenagers who have bastard kids? They are all a bunch of losers, giving birth to future losers. Have an abortion, then get your tubes tied. I am sick of working to support your welfare sucking asses. What raised these idiots, anyway? Wolves??

First of all, I believe that chick is on drugs. She lost alot of weight fast!! Her mood swings are out of control & she's always flipping out! Sounds like a meth head to me! I hope Gary get's a girl how will smack that orange bitch in her mouth!! I think she needs a good beat down!! She comes across as poor white trash. Why would any network wanna show this to young teens. I think it should be taken off the air!! Let's start a "TEEN MOM BOYCOTT!! NO young people should be watching a show that makes everything BAD look GOOD!! The network should be in as much trouble as that orange meth head!!

Had this situation been turned around and it was him hitting her, they would throw the book at him and throw away the key. In all fairness, they should do that to her as well.
I am happy to see that they are doing something about it. However, I do agree with the comments that American Society is declining and rapidly. We watch all kinds of garbage on TV like a train wreck we can't quit watching. We idolize those in the public spotlight to the point that society is trying in their daily lives to be something they aren't. When and where does it stop? When do we stand up and say its not okay? When as a society do we take these steps?
This is the dumbing down of America people! It will continue as long as we incorporate more "WHITE TRASH" into every aspect of our lives from TV shows, to magazines, and to movies.

It is clear that if Amber can willingly punch, kick, and slap her Baby Daddy that it won't be long before she is doing the same to her baby. The video gives clear evidence that she has no control over herself. She is a danger to her baby and the public. Amber needs to go to jail because domestic violence cannot be tolerated at all no matter who the abuser is! If this were a little man doing this to a large woman there would be people screaming from the rafters. Yet because the Abuser is a girl you don't get the same public outrage. Amber needs to be made an example of, she needs to get the maximum sentence and be placed on long term monitoring by Child Protection Services, because the next time we her about her may be the time she beats to death her child.

Anyone else remember the days when being a pregnant teenager was frowned on and considered tragic. The days of the "Kids having Kids" after school specials. Now they reward all these stupid kids with their own TV shows and magazine covers. I guess they figure that showing kids having babies at 14 will make them famous. WAY TO GO AMERICA!!!! LETS HAVE ANOTHER 10-20 YEARS OF STUPID CITIZENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
