Teen Mom OG Amber Portwood's Salary Disclosed As She's Ordered To Pay Child Support

Teen Mom OG Amber Portwood's Salary Disclosed As She's Ordered To Pay Child Support

She recently lost custody of her four-year-old son, who will be relocated to California.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood's salary has been revealed after the 32-year-old was ordered to pay child support for her son.

She earns $600,000 a year from MTV but will need to pay a significant amount to her ex, Andrew Glennon, 38, who now has sole custody of their son James, four.

As reported by The Sun, an Indiana judge wrote: "Mother's discovery responses, her listed contract amount was $600,000 per year. Other expenses, such as costs associated with agents and lawyers, come out of her contract amount."

The custody documents stated that she is left with around $475,000 once she has paid her team.

They also stated: "No evidence was presented as to any additional income associated with Mother's recent book." 

As well as granting Glennon full custody of the child, his request to relocate him to California was also granted in the ruling, which requires Portwood to pay backdated child support from their split in July 2019.

"The court orders that the mother's child support arrearage is set at $52,266.81.

"And mother shall pay this arrearage by making a lump sum payment within 90 days or by paying an additional $176 per week in child support until her arrearage is paid in full, for the total weekly child support payment of $800 per week," the documents read.

The documents state that she will have to pay $624 a week in child support.

The reality TV star will also have to contribute $3,000 towards Glennon's attorney fees, and they must together 'divide all work-related childcare expenses... pursuant to their respective income percentage shares'.

The judge explained that these expenses are likely to be significant because Portwood lives in Indiana and Glennon lives in California.

They wrote: "The court orders the parties shall divide the costs associated with the child travel expenses associated with parenting time pursuant to their respective income percentage shares. Any travel expenses incurred by the party for their own travel in relation to parenting times will be paid by that party."

The couple's bitter court battle began with when Glennon accused Portwood of domestic violence in 2019, for which she was arrested.

Since then, he has been their son's primary caretaker.

But while Portwood has now officially lost custody of her son, she will be allowed overnight visits with him for the first time since 2019 under the new ruling.

She will also be allowed some involvement in major decisions about James' life, with the judge ordering that Glennon 'seek out and consider the mother's opinion before making any major decisions relating to the child's medical treatment, education and religion'.
