Amber Portwood has been granted a restraining order against her ex-Andrew Glennon. The story was confirmed by ‘People.’
The court reports from Indiana’s Marion County that the order was issued on Monday, January 11th for: preventing interference with respondent’s parenting time.” The couple shares two-year-old James.
Portwood claimed that Glennon refused to let her see James throughout the week of Christmas. Allegedly, Glennon was traveling with James during Portwood’s visiting time. Portwood claimed that the lost visitation time should be made up in the future and that Glennon had to pay her attorney’s fees.
This isn’t the first time the couple’s dealt with legal situations. Back in 2019, Portwood was arrested for striking Glennon while he was holding their son in which Portwood was charged for domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than sixteen-years-old. Glennon would remark on the matter:
“That night was one of the scariest nights of my life and my mind replays the moments to no end. When I begged you to please stop shouting in front of our infant and your reply was, ‘It doesn’t matter, he’s just a baby,'” Glennon said. “Be a mother for once in your life.”
During an episode of Teen Mom OG back in April of 2020, Portwood talked about the matter:
“I just want it done…I’m so adamant on, ‘Please, just get this done.’ None of this is a victory. This has all been hell.”
Portwood and Glennon dated from July 2017 to July 2019. Glennon has primary custody of James, while Portwood sees him three times a week in addition to previously agreed-upon holidays. The arrest from 2019 was what caused the inevitable split between the two.
