Amber, 30, was arrested for incidents of domestic violence and drug possession during her previous relationships.
The Teen Mom star shares her pre-teen daughter Leah with her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley.
Leah lives mainly with her father and his new wife Kristina Shirley, as Amber recently revealed that her child has the ability to choose where she stays.
Amber has been feuding with the couple of late, over flirty comments Gary allegedly made towards her.
In a recent conversation with E! News, Amber talked about her eldest child as she develops into a teenager.

The controversial mother expressed that Leah is in middle school, is a straight-A student, and has big aspirations to be a doctor or lawyer one day.
She also divulged that her opinionated off-spring has not held back with asking deep-rooted questions about Amber’s troubled past.
“She’s definitely coming at me,” Amber admitted.
“She definitely wants to know, ‘What the hell happened mom? Why this? Why that?’ I say, ‘And you have every right and I’m going to give you your space. You let me know baby girl.’

The reality star alluded to a strained relationship with her child, explaining: “We still talk and snap and we still say, ‘I love you.’ I still see her, but she’s just getting older and she wants to know why and what happened back in the day and she wants to know certain things.”
“It’s hard because it’s hurtful to me when she feels possibly like she has more of a connection with somebody else than me because I’m not around as much as other people,” Amber intimated.
“That sucks. I’m an hour way. It’s hurtful, it really is. But I’m happy to watch my daughter become this strong queen.”
Amber recently disclosed that she has been living in Airbnb rental homes for TWO years following her split from her second baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.

She dropped the bomb through a selfie shared with her followers, captioned: “Going through old pics from a year ago before the pandemic, ugh wish I was this weight again!
“Lol to think I’ve lived in Airbnbs for almost two years now is [mind blowing emoji]!
“Rather save dollars however still working to lose weight though three pounds down. #my goal picture.”
Amber and Andrew broke up in 2019, after he accused her of attacking him with a machete.

He has primary custody of their three-year-old child
The father was awarded her home with their baby James in the custody agreement, and eventually received primary custody of their son.
Amber was forced to move out of the house and has since been short-term renting.
James, now three, is only allotted three unsupervised visits a week with his mother.
Amber has admitted the arrangement has left her “hurt”, and she feels she has “lost so much time.”
The Teen Mom icon has been officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, attributing to her parenting and co-parenting issues.
