Teen Mom Amber Portwood's ex Andrew shares cryptic post about 'gaslighting' as their nasty custody battle heads to trial

AMBER Portwood's ex Andrew Glennon shared a cryptic message about gaslighting amidst the ex-couple's heated custody battle over their three-year-old son James.

The Teen Mom OG star has been fighting for her son's custody since 2019 after she was arrested for domestic violence in July of that year.


Andrew, 37, took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a cryptic post about "gaslighting" amidst his nasty custody battle with ex Amber, 31.

The reality star shared a video that explained: "Gaslighting is when somebody convinces you that what you see, you didn't see, what you hear, you aren't hearing, what you feel, you don't feel.

"It's to convince you that your reality is completely false. Gaslighting is a serious abuse tactic," the video claimed.

Andrew's story post comes in the thick of a nasty custody battle between the father and his ex over their three-year-old son.


Earlier this week a source exclusively revealed to The Sun that the couple will most likely head to "trial" over the issue, as Amber has not been allowed extensive time with her son for two years.

"The last mediation they had didn't go favorably for Amber," they revealed. 

"They've been trying to work out an agreement in mediation but they just haven't been able to get anything settled. Now, this is likely headed for trial.

“Amber is doing really well, it's hard because she isn't even allowed overnight visits," the insider disclosed.


Andrew was granted primary physical custody of their child in July of 2019 after Amber was arrested for domestic violence against him.

However, the two share legal custody, which allows the controversial mother three unsupervised visits a week with James. 

The MTV star previously filed a petition to modify parenting time to request overnight visitation with the young child.

In February, a judge ruled that the pair resolve their parenting issues out of court and in mediation within 60 days of the order.  


In court papers obtained exclusively by The Sun, the May 24th mediation was deemed "unsuccessful."

Amber maintains the ability to request a court hearing in the case, after claiming that a “change in circumstances warrant” an adjustment to their custody agreement.  

The mother of two alleged that according to Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines, parenting time is increased to include overnights when the child turns three.

The Indiana native said it was in the “best interest” of James that “the current parenting time be modified to include overnight parenting time.” 


Amber has seen some success in the case overall, as she filed court papers claiming Andrew went against their custody agreement by refusing to let her see their son the week of Christmas.  

She then requested that Andrew be “held in contempt of court,” which could result in jail time or a fine, for failing to follow the court’s order.

The Sun previously reported that the judge sided with her over the January 6, 2020 and December 23, 2020 filings.   

Amber also shares her daughter Leah, 12, with her ex-fiancée Gary Shirley.

Her relationship with her eldest child has been rocky for years, and recently the pre-teen told her mother she had no interest in working on their relationship because she has been inconsistent in her life.
