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

12/30/2010 11:00 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."

So much for learning from mistakes.

This dude doesn't care for the kid. He doesn't care for Miss trailer trash either. However, he does care about money and she is his gravy train right now.

MTV no longer stands for Music Television. It is a moniker for Moron TV.

Here is an idea, take THE SHOW OFF THE AIR! How long is DCS going to let this case go on? The child should be removed AT ONCE, the Mom should be admitted to a phyc unit and dad needs to get his physical and mental health under control!

PS - MTV, man-up take some responsability - YOU GUYS are just feeding the flame and this poor child is right in the middle!

Gary mother does not owe a adult male anything. He should amn up and take care of himself.
Why does no one talk ablout the fact that this guy start molesting this girl when she was 13 or 14. Yeah she got pregnant at 16 or 17. I watched the show. I have watch this gut manipulate this girl form day one. Because he was older. When the tables turmed and just maybe she would not need him as much I was pleased.

Listen people I saw fighting in my house. There is no excuse for it. She should and will get the same probation and hopfully the some angerment.

STOP the crap with taking her child. Stop acting like she murdered someone.

He is a total loser, no job, fat, disgusting useless and he plays to the camera, just ewwwwww! If it wasn't for MTV no one give this loser the time of day. They both need to grow up, but I find him just pathetic and sad because he does this for attention and the child suffers, I hope they take the kid away from both and they lose the show, MTV is supporting this disgusting blob and AMber has rage issues, but how much do we as the public see? It is all done for Shock and Awe and ratings and the only one who is going to pay is the baby..simple as that. They both turn my stomach, he is a Mamma's boy and knows if Amber loses the baby he loses the show and spot light, which is the only thing getting his tubby butt laid and we all know it! The girl that is with him will drop him as soon as his 15 mins is over and he KNOWS that. Ewwww. start a family with a deadbeat loser who runs home to mommy and has no back bone? Where women get stuck because they are afraid to leave their abuser, this little boy feeds off of it or he would leave, I mean he is big enough to take a hit and leave but he knows she is his pay check, which to me is really even more disgusting and he plays a good dad on camera, but it that just when the camera is around, because he can clean and cook and work too, but he lives like the slob he is! My husband was dying because he said "This is our future, these stupid kids? Kill me now then! lol

To all the folks who are saying this audio recording is illegal,it's not. Indiana is only a one party notification state so only the 'friend' who Gary was talking to (and recorded the audio) would need to be aware it was being recorded.

TMZ has lawyers on staff- do you all honestly think they let this slip by while a bunch of geniuses like you all caught it?

See thats the thing about so called reality stars they beat a dead horse just stay in the spot light even if that means exploiting children or setting up fights. Because any person on a reality show is A PIECE OF ****!

On the show, he does a lot of things to provoke her. I wouldn't be surprised if he still does it because he wants to get her locked up so he can take care of the baby. I swear his mother is in on this too.

Did his "friend" illegally record the conversation and sold it to TMZ?

I'll say it again, if his friend was the one who made and sold the recording then it meets the one party consent criteria- therefore it is NOT illegal.
