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.

This is a clear violation of HIPPA. The doctor can't share that with anyone but the patient. Harvey???? YOu know that.

The person who really needs to be arrested is the person who stole her eyebrows. Crazy look for a crazy girl.

Why the heck do you use this degenerate's name & "star" in the same sentence?? A friggin disgrace to humanity! Please stop covering these no-names (yes Lindsay (dunce), Amber (cow) and Octo (total failure as a mother) & stick to covering people with talent. Pretty please!

First thing they need to do is cancel that stupid TV show. That would take of most problems.

In bed for 2-3 weeks after gallbladder surgery? Just had mine out...was back to work about 1.5 weeks later. That's a bit of a stretch. AND...who told her shaving her eyebrows like that was attractive?? Looks ridiculously stupid.
