MTV's 'Teen Mom' Star Evicted for Misrepresenting Income
Amber Portwood, one of the stars of the MTV reality television series "Teen Mom," was recently evicted from a house she was renting in Anderson, Ind. The unit had been subsidized by the state's Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program. The reality star falsely claimed she made roughly $10,000 a year, much less than the $280,000 she actually earned in 2010. This made her ineligible for subsidized housing and led to her eviction.
Currently, Portwood is enrolled in a drug rehabilitation program that she must complete as part of a plea deal. She was originally sentenced to five years in jail for drug and probation violations on Feb. 6, but made the plea in order to avoid doing time.
