'Teen Mom' Star Takes to Twitter to Make Some BIG Accusations

Eye Roll 9

Gary ShirleyTwitter and stars of MTV's Teen Mom just don't mix. It's a fact we see again and again with Jenelle Evans, Amber Portwood, and even Maci Bookout. These dramas on social media play out badly and always end up making the tweeter look stupid. Gary Shirley, Portwood's baby daddy and ex-fiance, is just the latest.

Last week, he aired ALL his dirty laundry with an ex-girlfriend on Twitter and it was ugly, indeed. But hey, at least it wasn't Amber this time, right?

His new girlfriend Kristina apparently cheated (according to Gary) as he tweeted:

Give a girl a promise ring after 9 months of dating, find out she’s in a relationship w someone else after she said she broke up with them f*ck!

And:

Lol the sad thing is I believed everything she said haha damn! Told her she should act!

Poor Gary. As clueless as he could sometimes be, I always kind of liked him on the show. I think he genuinely loves Leah and was way nicer to Amber than she deserved at times.

Still, all this is a lesson about Twitter. If Kristina DID cheat on Gary, then she deserves to be dumped, but publicly humiliated? Maybe not. As these Teen Mom stars begin to break up with each other and they begin to move on (good for Gary!), this will become more commonplace (see Jenelle Evans).

It's probably not a good thing. Even when people deserve it. The reality is, Twitter isn't a great thing for some people and Shirley -- and Jenelle and all her exes -- might be one of them. Gary deleted all the tweets and I am guessing he learned from this.

Private things are best kept private. Every "celebrity" ought to know that up front.

Do you think it's good to air personal baggage on social media?

You are delusional, and can't see!!! Gary pushed Ambers buttons so many times. 


I think he did it on purrpose just so he could get custody of Leah.

I vent all the time on a private blog only a select view read; i find it's good mental health wise to get in off my chest.  Note I NEVER name people by their real names.

Treated Amber better than she deserved? Are you F***ing serious? Always using Leah as a tool proves he loves her? WTF???? He sat on his ass playing video games, does no one remember their 16 and preg episode? Baby on the way I cleaned out our savings for an xbox, because it will be way more useful than oh I dunno diapers? clothes? carseat? Baby stuff? He's a douche. Amber should of beat his ass more damn!! Leah playing with condoms on her bday so Gary could sleep off his douchebag hangover. He tried to control her and play daddy to her. I would of been a psycho bitch too!!!

Yeah Gary was the reason Amber was so messed up. It was date me or I'm going to take your daugter away. I never liked him and never will I'm glad he got played not to be a total B but he needs to loose weight he can barley breath and Leah needs a dad who can run ater her.

Kristen Johnson

no Amber was the reason Amber was a nut. You cannot control other people only your own reaction to the situation. She could have been the better person and not played into it.

Kristen Johnson

AND if she had not played into the "games" despite threats and manipulations Gary would have had NO ammo to take Leah. Just saying

It amazes me that no one seems particularly concerned about the age difference at play here. Do the math.
