"Also, after Leah says 'both of you need to stop,' Amber saying 'honey, I’m fine.' ITS NOT ABOUT YOU," remarked a third.

"Amber will forever play the freaking victim! She just is so out of touch with reality," added a fourth.

Fans have watched Amber and Gary's tense relationship play out on MTV's 16 & Pregnant, and its spinoff series, Teen Mom OG.

Leah is their only child together, and Gary has primary custody.

Amber has struggled to get closer to Leah due to being absent for a portion of her daughter's life when she was in prison.

The TV personality spent 17 months behind bars after pleading guilty to domestic battery.


After being released for good behavior, Amber opened up to In Touch about being incarcerated.

"Before prison, I never thought about Leah. I was addicted to drugs and didn’t care about anything else. Prison saved my life — and gave me a second chance at being a mother," the mom-of-two said.

She has since been trying to reconnect with her daughter, which even Leah admitted has been difficult.
