Amber Portwood Set To Quit MTV’s Teen Mom, On Suicide Watch In Jail

The 21-year-old told the judge "I want to quit, and I will," referring to the MTV series that made her an international reality star, after documenting the birth of daughter, Leah, in 2008.

Portwood's Lawyer, Evan Broderick, says she was exploited by the MTV show, and has decided to move forward without the cameras documenting her every step.

An Indiana judge ruled that Amber must stay in jail until her next hearing on Jan. 27, because she violated the terms of her probation by neglecting to submit to drug tests, attend anger management classes, finish her GED, as well as failure to deposit money into a $10,000 education fund for her daughter. She was also in possession of pills she couldn't provide prescriptions for, a Class D felony, at the time of her arrest on Monday.

Portwood is currently under suicide watch after she was overheard telling a guard that she'd kill herself if sent back to prison.

The Teen Mom's probation stems from a June court hearing where she pleaded guilty to two counts of Class D felony domestic battery on her baby daddy, which was committed in the presence of her daughter.

Is Amber making the right decision to quit Teen Mom after just two seasons?
