'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood

Ordered to Pay Up

After Mooching Off Poor People

4/29/2012 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_amber_portwood"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has been ordered by a judge to pony up some cash to the rental home company who was suing to evict her ... after the reality star was caught free-loading off government housing.

As TMZ first reported, while Portwood was still rotting in jail, a rental company sued her for eviction after they discovered she lied about her "low-income" (she made $280K in 2010) ... which disqualified her from their subsidized government housing.

An Indiana judge ruled this month in the rental company's favor after Amber never even bothered to respond to the suit. Portwood must pay the company $673 within 30 days or risk further legal action. 

Of course if she can't find the cash ... jail is free.

Why do they call these Losers "stars"?? Why not realty aCTORS? THey s as hell are NOT stars. They pay them enormous ammounts of money, and there is no talent what so ever IE: Housewives,kardashians,and all the other slutty shows which is not reality. Just scripted nonsense.

srsly    

It's easy to blame the skank for being a skank - but it's more important to blame MTV for enabling the skank to be a useless P.O.S. that encourages other young girls to capitalize off really terrible decision-making.

I wonder if anyone will ever remember MTV used to innovate instead of be one of the leading voices championing our society into destruction? Nah, doubtful.

Are American courts finally getting rid of their career Marxists and Liberalist Social Engineers?

my dad has been working his ass off for 42 years, pays his bills, and finally makes enough money to retire comfortably....and this all this dumb bitch has to do is behave irresponsibly and she's rewarded with a tv show, made over a quarter million dollars, AND got to live in public housing....
