The end of an era? Rumors are circulating that OG teen mom alum Amber Portwood was fired after an alleged feud with Teen Mom: The Next Chapter costar Ashley Jonesbut In touch can confirm that this is not the case.
“She wasn’t fired,” a source says In touch on Amber’s status with the network, adding that they are “still working on whether she will continue with the show.”
The insider claims that Amber, 32, and MTV “don’t agree on some things.”
“There are things she likes [about filming] and things that are really hard to do on the show,” the source continues.
While Amber and the network work out their differences, the Indiana native co-stars have begun filming the next season of Teen Mom: The Next Chapteraccording to The Ashleywho was the first to break the news.
Amber’s absence from the long-running reality series comes after a heated conversation between her and Ashley, 25, was social media leak by the California native.
After filming the Family meeting special reunion wrapped in Los Angeles in October 2022, all the moms minus Ashley boarded two vans to leave the set. According to The Ashley, Ashley [Jones] “realized who was in the vans” when they passed her and “she started doing her signature twerk moves”.
Amber was reportedly furious and called Ashley, who claimed to have recorded a TikTok video.
During the telephone conversation, a Clearly Heated Amber Threatened for Ashley to kick off the series. “You’re gone. You’re out of money bitch, you’re gone. Next f-king season, look,” she yelled. “You fucked the wrong female dog.”
Briana, 28, and Kiaya, 22, had issues with Ashley before arriving in Oregon with their social media mothers.
“Honestly, I don’t know if Ashley is coming, but since last season there’s been a lot of weird internet drama,” Briana told producers ahead of Ashley’s arrival. “We all made a pact that we weren’t going to talk shit about each other on the internet. If there was anything we wanted to discuss, we went to each other privately. Everyone else in the franchise did, except for Ashley [sic].”
For her part, Kiaya claimed that Ashley “went to Instagram and made this long ass post about [her].”
“I don’t feel like I can mingle knowing that I feel a certain way because I feel like it would be wrong of me,” she added.
Things quickly escalated when Bri’s mother, Roxanne DeJesus, confronted Ashley’s mother, Pastor Tea, during a group dinner. After things got physical with the Florida native threatening to kick Ashley in the throat and Ashley spitting in Briana’s face, producers and security had to separate the group. Ashley and Bri, along with their mothers, have been asked to leave the resort and stay at another hotel for the night.
