TEEN Mom Amber Portwood's ex Andrew Glennon admitted to draining $38,000 from their joint bank account while she was behind bars.
In audio of Andrew's testimony during the exes' brutal custody battle, which was exclusively obtained by The Sun, he revealed he made the transfer from their joint bank account to his personal account while Amber was sitting in an Indiana jail after being arrested on July 5th of 2019 for domestic violence.
During Andrew's cross-examination, Amber's attorney asked him"You took $38,000 away from the joint account and put that into your personal account, correct?"
Andrew responded "Yes. I told Amber that I was doing that," to which the attorney further pressed: "Amber was in jail at the time that that was done, is that correct?"
The father-of-one said: "That was the plan before the attack even happened. She wanted to get a safe and…"
"If you can, please just answer my question. Amber was in jail at the time that that was done. Is that correct?," to which Andrew replied: "Correct."

Andrew also confirmed the transfer in court documents exclusively obtained by The Sun, which were submitted as part of discovery.
At the time the Teen Mom star was arrested, her brother Shawn made statements to social media accusing Andrew of draining an account, and that he had to put money back into the account so Amber would be able to bail out.
“Well considering Andrew took all of the money out of her account and transferred it into his personal account. The only way she was able to bail herself out was to have him transfer money back into her account,” Shawn tweeted, according to The Ashley.

A month after Amber's arrest a source close to the MTV star had told US Weekly that she noticed money missing before the altercation: “A lot of money went missing from Amber’s and Andrew’s joint bank account leading up to the fight."
While a source close to Andrew defended the money moves at the time: "Amber and Andrew became aware of their joint bank account being manipulated, and the couple agreed the best thing to do was to suspend that account and transfer the funds. She insisted on removing all the money from their joint account and buying a safe.”
A WIN FOR AMBER
As The Sun previously revealed, the reality star successfully completed her probation relating to the July 2019 arrest.
According to Indiana court records Amber was officially discharged from probation on April 26, 2022.
She completed a 26-week Batterer’s Intervention Program and paid a fine of $1,285.
In audio previously obtained by The Sun, Andrew revealed his plan in his petition to the court to relocate their son away from Amber in Indiana to his home state where he and James would live with his mother, Charmaine Witus, as they get settled into California.
He currently lives with their son in a home Amber owns in Indiana, while she is living in a rental nearby.
Charmaine's Malibu estate sits on over three-acres of property, and her home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a swimming pool, which can be seen in aerial photos, according to listings.
In testimony during the custody hearing, Andrew's mother revealed there is also a separate guest house too where his sister and her fiancé currently reside.
He also is asking for no overnights, and that her parenting time be exercised in California.
