Amber portwood hospital

"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is currently being treated at a hospital, following reports she threatened to kill herself.
"Our understanding is that Amber has been admitted to a local hospital but we have not been able to confirm the accuracy of any reports being circulated and are waiting for further details," MTV told Access Hollywood in a statement on Tuesday. "Our thoughts are with her and we hope to hear more soon."
On Tuesday, police in Anderson, Indiana, the reality star's base of residence, confirmed that she had threatened suicide.

"Late this morning (11:34 AM), Anderson Police responded to a call at a residence... According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life," the police's statement, obtained by Access Hollywood, read. " The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation."
According to Radar Online, Portwood was visited at the hospital by Gary Shirley, her on-again, off-again boyfriend and father of the couple's child.
Portwood has been in the headlines for months. Just days ago, she was given probation after pleading guilty to two felony domestic battery charges, the Associated Press previously reported.
The plea was reportedly related to footage of the star on "Teen Mom," showing her slapping, choking and kicking Shirley.
