During this week’s “Teen Mom OG” episode, Gary blindsided Amber with paperwork alleging that her fiancé Matt has seven kids. Shortly after this installment aired, Amber and Matt spoke with MTV News about the current status of their relationship and — as seen in the video below — clarified how many children Matt has (which contradicted the claims that Gary presented).
However, reports have been circulating for the past several days regarding Matt’s history — and the Indiana native wants to put a stop to the rumors and set the record straight.
“There have been many stories and allegations surrounding Matt’s past,” Amber said in a statement. “Just as my own journey has proven, people make mistakes and should be given a second chance without being judged solely on those choices. We are happy and focused on building our future together.”
