Amber Portwood

Back to Jail

5/11/2012 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0511_amber_portwood_01"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is back in an Indiana jail cell ... after prosecutors claimed she LIED about having a medical condition to get out of her weekly drug court appointment.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Portwood was a no-show at drug court last week ... after telling officials she was on doctor-ordered bed rest following laparoscopic gallbladder surgery.  Our sources say Amber's attorney told the court she was ordered to remain in bed for 2-3 weeks.

But here's the rub -- we're told Amber's case manager didn't want to take Amber's word for it ... and spoke to the doctor directly ... who called B.S. on the reality star and insisted she WAS well enough to attend her court obligations.

Amber was immediately hauled back to jail for missing the appointment -- and we're told she's expected to stay behind bars for a couple of weeks ... until a judge decides what to do with her.

Enough with taking the time and effort to report on these non-entities. A celebrity is someone to be celebrated. There is nothing to celebrate with this waste of groceries. Ignore them and pray they go away sooner rather than later.

"... until a judge decides what to do with her". How about swaddle her up with a soother in her mouth, put her in a big basket, and leave her on the front steps of MTV headquarters.

Sad to say saw this coming. Unfortunately for Amber she is in the system, and the system will never let her go. She will be a constant re offender, thus further perpetuating the cycle of dysfunction for her precious daughter Leah. Gary is a tool, but at least Gary tried to step in. Thank God Gary has a cool mom and family who obviously adore Ms. Leah. Amber get it together girl, never too late for change.

Glad that her judge follows the rules and doesn't put up with her B.S.-unlike Lindsay's judge.

I've had that surgery done. You only need to rest for about 5-7 days. And on pain meds she could've gone to court even earlier then that. Stupid to lie about something that can be verified or discredited by her doctor

2-3 weeks for laparoscopic gallbladder surgery? Ummm okay. I had full blown gallbladder surgery where they cut you a good 7" and I was on my feet the same day, and home that week. laparoscopic gallbladder surgery in much easier on your body. In most cases you can get back to doing things in 4-5 days. The only restriction in most cases is no lifting anything heavy for a while.
