Teen Mom 2 star Amber Portwood’s boyfriend Andrew Glennon is speaking out about the machete incident that occurred between him and Amber.
Earlier this month, Amber threatened her Andrew with a machete and was arrested for domestic violence. The court documents obtained by TMZ reveal that Amber hit a door with the machete and Andrew was on the other side. While the door got the brunt of the attack, Amber then threw a shoe at Andrew, striking him while he was holding their 1-year-old child, James.

Amber has since received supervised visits with her 1-year-old son James but still cannot have contact with Andrew, who seems to be moving on. Andrew took to Instagram to clear his conscience, sharing a post that has him
“Nothing better in the world than a clean conscience,” he posted. He then captioned those words, saying “…except Baby James.”
That’s when Andrew started interacting with fans and asking questions they had. While many are supporting him through the ordeal, some of Amber’s fans questioned his past in which Amber had filed a restraining order against him.
“If I had actually read the restraining order, I never would have signed it, half the stuff in there I didn’t do,” Andrew replied. “It hurt she thought it was even necessary to get one [mandated by her mother], so I just signed it because I respect her. I’ve come a long way since then and it was tough, but it all made me a better person in the end. I always try to admit my shortcomings and learn from them, without that process there is no progress.”
Andrew did reveal that this was the worst event that took place between he and Amber but things have happened before. “Wasn’t the first time, just the worst time,” he wrote. “It’s been a long road of trying to heal.”
“I’ve processed it and improved, that’s all that really matters. But seriously, if you guys have any questions about stuff like that, I will give the honest truth. I wasn’t always a semi-decent human, had to go through the rough stuff to fine tune. The art of subtraction. Subtract all the things that don’t serve you now or your future. The hardest thing to do is accept your downfalls, your real mistakes, see what lead you there, how to do better, and the most important is to genuinely forgive yourself.
In another response, Andrew had a vision for his future with Amber, however life had other plans.
“Sometimes life just does what life does and HAPPENS. I saw us in a mansion and my vineyard producing… and with brothers and sisters for James. I plan for the best and to help those I love, not to trick, entrap, or deceive.”
Amber has yet to comment on her beau’s post but we’re pretty sure we haven’t heard the last from either of them.
