TEEN Mom OG star Amber Portwood is “heartbroken” and “distraught” her ex Andrew Glennon implied she hit their son, James, three, in a since-deleted post.
Sources close to Amber told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup “there’s zero truth to” the allegation.
An insider who knows Amber told the outlet: “There’s zero truth to it. She’s heartbroken that anyone could think she would ever hurt a child.
“Her heart is broken that this would be implied. Amber feels like Andrew knows exactly what to say to hurt her and have the public side with him. She would never hit James.”
The production source also spoke to Amber and her 12-year-old daughter Leah’s strained relationship, sharing: “Her and Leah[‘s relationship] is a work in progress.
“She is in school, and is really trying to be a positive influence on her kids.”
Recently, Andrew implied someone, presumably Amber, “hit” their son James.
The Teen Mom OG star’s baby daddy wrote on his Instagram Stories: “You hit your baby boy?… Really?!”
He then added: “Here’s the beauty. Justice will prevail, Losses will accumulate. As time does perspire.”
Andrew, 37, later deleted the troubling post from his Instagram Stories.

AMBER VERSUS ANDREW
All this comes amid his nasty custody battle with Amber over James, which has been raging since their split in 2019.
Andrew was granted primary physical custody of their toddler after Amber was arrested for domestic violence against him in July 2019.
The exes share joint legal custody, allowing Amber three unsupervised visits a week with James.
The MTV star, 31, filed a petition to modify parenting time, requesting overnight visitation with James.
In Amber’s request, she claimed there has been a “change in circumstances” that “warrant” an adjustment to their custody agreement.
Amber claimed it is in the “best interest” of James that “the current parenting time be modified to include overnight parenting time.”
A judge ruled on Amber’s request in February by ordering the two to resolve their parenting issues out of court and in mediation within 60 days of the order.
LOOKING FOR COMPROMISE
In court papers exclusively obtained by The Sun, the May 24th mediation was “unsuccessful.”
Amber does have the option to request a court hearing in the custody case.
A source previously revealed to The Sun: “The last mediation they had didn’t go favorably for Amber.
“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.”
The insider added: “Amber is doing really well, it’s hard because she isn’t even allowed overnight visits.”
‘IN CONTEMPT OF COURT’
Though Amber didn’t receive more time with her son, she did have a victory in their court war.
Amber previously claimed in court papers Andrew went against their custody agreement by refusing to let her see their son the week of Christmas.
She requested 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 reported an Indiana judge sided with Amber, as Andrew was found in contempt of court.
He was ordered to pay a $250 fine for each and to pay $500 toward Amber’s Attorney fees within 30 days of the court order.
Andrew took to Instagram to share a cryptic post about “gaslighting” amid their court war.
