Amber Portwood

Allegedly Evicted

For Conning the Government

2/16/2012 12:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was tossed out of her Indiana home last month for scamming the government and mooching off taxpayer money -- this according to law enforcement sources.

Here's how it breaks down -- according to Amber's lease agreement, obtained by TMZ, the house she was renting in Anderson, Indiana had been subsidized by the state's "Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program."

Problem is, in order to enroll in the program -- a prerequisite for moving in -- the reality star claimed she made roughly $10,000 a year ... MUCH less than what she actually earned in 2010 ... $280,000.

According to sources, Amber's massive income rendered her ineligible for subsidized housing -- no duh -- and that's the reason her landlords evicted her.

It doesn't really matter though -- Amber's still locked up in jail, awaiting final approval to enter a court-appointed drug rehab program.

WHY do they still refer to Amber Portwood as a *star*. She is in jail and is not a part of the show anymore, not that she was ever a star. She's just some piece of trailer trash that got a chance to be on TV.

Never heard of this cheater but why be surprised. Lots of people cheat the government, Timothey Geithner, Sebelius and more and these two were given cabinet posts and in turn the govertment cons us, the tax payers. Sounds like a vicious cycle to me.

I can't believe that such an icon of virtue and purity could do such a thing! Her mother and `father?' must be so ashamed. Maybe it's time our government grew up (if not a pair), and started telling these kids; Hey, just because you can spread your legs and make babies, doesn't mean you get to keep them. Also, if you're a minor, your parents can be responsible for you and your needs, but the buck begins and ends there. I know it sounds ugly, but if we let a few of these kids live on the street or wherever, then maybe it will start looking a little less exotic and attractive for the rest.

The real concern should be for the LOSERS that even watch such garbage as Teen Mom.

"Teen mom"....Un-Fing believable! And she gets paid for it!!!!! This what our society has become across the Country. This gereations sence of entitlement and disregard for integrity is DOOMING our Country. Yah, lets all squirt out babys and live on "programs" and sit on our asses and get fat on government chees. This is exactly what our government fosters with easy welfare programs. Why isn't anyone going after "baby-daddy" and forcing the idiot to get a job and pay??? Oh yah, because he was raised on welfare too! What a great country we live in when we middle class citizens, who pay our taxes and don't have kids unitl we are married and can afford to have them, get to pay for all the ignorant, leg spreading s***. Go America! Way to set the exaple for the rest of the world.
