Last month, Amber fought back at critics who accused her of being on drugs.

During Amber's Instagram live video, she shared: ...My pupils can be as big as they can be.

...I'm in a dark, f**king house, and I'm also on medications. Duh!...

Some viewers commented her pupils were big after fans accused her of relapsing.

Previously, followers accused her of being high in late-night videos, but she's denying that she's under the influence in this video.


Over the years the reality star has been arrested for drug possession.

Amber was sentenced to five years in prison for prescription drug possession and probation violation.

The Teen Mom OG star was released from jail early in 2013 for good behavior and according to the jail's spokesperson, she participated in a substance abuse program while in prison.

Amber recently revealed her daughter Leah, 12, has begun to ask questions about their traumatic past together, including the star's addiction and prison sentence.

The MTV star has struggled over the years with mental health that attributed to her parenting and co-parenting issues.

She has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.

Amber recently began college at Purdue University and is studying to get her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in Applied Behavior Analysis.


The TV star took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce the release of her new book, So You're Crazy Too?

She shared a rendering of the autobiography's cover, which included a sketch drawing of her face covering a screaming shadow.

The TV personality, who wrote the book along with medium Thea De Sousa, claimed that the text will let all ...skeletons... out of the closet surrounding her decade on television.

Amber wrote in the caption: ...After 12 years on reality TV you thought you'd shared it all- but this book truly lets all the skeletons out of the closet and the warning label in the front was well-earned....

...Pre-order with the link in the bio!!!... she closed.

Later, in the comments section, she added a word of thanks to her ...supporters... and fans who she called ...beautiful... for sending their feedback.

...Thank you everyone for sending all the positive vibes and love! I honestly love my supporters and will always be transparent with you!

...Always #sendinglove to all the #beautifulsouls because you truly are just that beautiful inward and outward....


Earlier this month, Amber broke down in tears over being ...attacked... by trolls for the drug accusations.

The star went live on Instagram because she wanted to catch up with her followers, but she had to end it early after haters started slamming her.

Toward the end of the video, she started to get choked up and told viewers: “I did everything to do better, and I did nothing to deserve this. Not today at least.”

Caught up in the moment and wanting to get out her feelings and anger, Amber pleaded: “All I’ve been doing is trying to f***ing–.”

After cutting off mid-sentence due to breaking down in tears, she continued: “All I've been doing is trying to work on myself and be a better person. And I get attacked for no reason. 

“It’s not right. What did I do, honestly? I did things to better myself, to make sure I’m still alive today, and I’m attacked for it. 

“You guys have no f**king clue what’s behind the scenes and what I had to go through. So, thanks.

“Every time I come on here to talk to fans, I get s**t on.”

Amber's tell-all autobiography will be released on February 22nd and has been advertised as ...an in-depth look into Teen Mom star Amber Portwood's long history dealing with several severe mental illnesses....
