Several Teen Mom stars have been plagued with scandal, but now it seems Amber Portwood may permanently lose custody of her daughter, Leah, to the baby’s father, Gary Shirley. According to Radar, Gary’s lawyer believes he will be granted full custody of Leah. He says that in order to regain custody, Amber would have to be “able to maintain a clean track record.” Considering the trouble she’s been in, this doesn’t seem likely. She’s currently in a rehab facility following a suicide attempt, was investigated by Child Protection Services, and was once jailed on domestic abuse charges.

Still, Gary’s lawyer says they plan to allow Amber to have “a whole lot of visitation.” They don’t want to completely cut her off from her child. He even hinted that Gary and Amber might move in together to allow Amber to act like a mother without actually having custody. Well, doesn’t that sound like a great idea…
