‘Teen Mom’ star Amber Portwood back in jail (again)

She's back behind bars.

Just when things for Amber Portwood start to look as though they are getting better, they somehow still find a way to get worse again. What’s happened this time? Let’s just say that the “Teen Mom” star is back behind bars.

According to TMZ, Portwood has been imprisoned again over claims that she exaggerated a medical condition in order to get out of a court appearance. Basically, Portwood’s camp claimed that she was ordered by a doctor to be on bed rest following a laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, but when the prosecutors found out about this excuse, they did some researching and quickly learned that, per doctor’s orders, she was in fact well enough to attend court.

No formal ruling has been made yet when it comes to Portwood (who will be returning to MTV alongside Catelynn Lowell, Maci Bookout, and Farrah Abraham on June 3), but she is expected to remain in prison for the next few weeks while the judge tries to figure things out when it comes to this case.

It’s unclear whether or not Portwood has filmed any for “Teen Mom” while under house arrest following her time in jail earlier this year, but the fourth season set to air in 2013 will be the last for this version of the franchise.

We’ve asked this before, but do you ever think that Portwood is going to be able to turn all of her troubles around?
