Amber Portwood and Matt Baier won’t be tying the knot any time soon. The “Teen Mom OG” star has officially called off her wedding.
According to Us Weekly, Amber and Matt are still together though they’re no longer getting married — not right now, anyway. Sources told the publication that the couple experienced “a few bumps in the road” as of late and have decided that the timing just isn’t right. No official reason for Amber’s decision has been revealed.
“They are still together and living together but there have been a few bumps in the road. The fall wedding isn’t happening,” one source said. “Amber got cold feet after a series of red flags.”
Rumors have been swirling about whether or not the couple would make it down the aisle for some time now. “Teen Mom OG” fans first saw Amber having doubts during an episode of the show. She was shown wedding dress shopping with a friend, at which time she had a minor panic attack while looking at herself in the gown she chose.
“I don’t know,” she said when asked what she thought about the dress. “Alright, I’m ready to get out of this. Get me out of this. Get me out of this: now.”
Amber opened up to a producer on the MTV docuseries during the episode, admitting that she was having second thoughts. She maintained that she and Matt were very much in love. Amber noted, however, that trust was an issue in their relationship.
Those trust issues stem from lies Matt’s been caught in in the past. During an earlier season of the show, Amber learned that her fiancé had been lying about how many kids he had. She was under the impression that he had two kids from previous relationships. It wasn’t until her ex, Gary Shirley, uncovered the news that he had five other kids that she questioned it.
“I was shocked,” she told OK Magazine at the time. “I didn’t know what to think. Did my man have all these kids with all these women that I didn’t know about? It freaked me out.”
That’s not the only drama that’s plagued Amber and Matt’s relationship. The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported that Matt failed a lie detector test during which he was asked about cheating. Amber is said to have dumped Matt after he failed, though that report remains unconfirmed. Radar Online reported that the moment was captured by MTV’s cameras, but that remains to be seen on the show.
Matt confirmed that he did take the lie detector test in an interview with The Dirty. He claimed he passed “with flying colors.” Matt also confirmed that he took the test to prove to Amber that he hasn’t been unfaithful.
While those reports should be taken with a grain of salt, there are a few more sound clues that Amber and Matt are done. On Thursday, the mother of one appeared on Susan Pinsky’s podcast. During the broadcast she opened up about her relationship, revealing that it had been derailed “in the last couple of days.”
“We were engaged for a couple of years, we had a venue set up for Oct. 13 and everything, let’s just say some things have happened just in the last couple of days,” she shared. “I don’t really know.”
She went on to say that he had a lot of apologizing to do. Amber wouldn’t say definitively that she and Matt were done, calling it “a weird situation.” The “Teen Mom OG” star announced that her former fiancé had traveled back home for a little time away.
