The Teen Mom OG star retaliated after they compared her to a “teenage daughter” on the season premiere of the show.
During the first episode of the new series, Gary and Kristina were talking about Amber and likened her to their teenage daughter.
The single mom of two took offence and slammed the couple in a video posted to Instagram, where she called them “two faced liars”.
Amber said on Instagram: “Gary did say that he was here every day for a week. No, sweetheart. That’s a lie. And you’re two-faced. And your wife’s two-faced- saying that I’m like a teenager, like a teenage daughter.
“Well, how did that $7,500 feel guys that wasn’t child support? Oh? Well, how did that $500 when you cleaned my house because you said you needed a job, Christina?
“Oh I’m sorry, am I telling the truth? Yeah, I just watched that. You guys are two-faced, and you’re liars.”
After watching the video, Gary posted a response to social media writing: “My wife is amazing. I love her deeply. I’m very glad your [sic] in me and our kids life and know we together would put up with an infinite amount of Amber for the sake of Leah.”
A fan of Teen Mom OG shared the post to Reddit where users rushed to applaud the reality star for his “damn decent response”.
One wrote: “Wow, a damn decent response from Gary, kudos to him for standing by his wife too. Usually he’s bending to Amber’s will constantly to keep her happy and in Leah’s life.”
They added: “Now we get to watch Amber squirm trying to hold her ground knowing she needs Gary and Kristina’s help. Are we placing bets on when she’ll break down and crawl back to them to get her groceries?”
