In case you’ve saved up with the horrifying story of the connection between Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon, then you definately probably consider that issues could not presumably worsen between them.
And if that’s the truth is the case, then, nicely, we have got some unhealthy information …
Amber and Andrew have not been collectively since July of 2019, when she was arrested for allegedly assaulting him.
In keeping with Andrew, she grew very agitated after some street work prevented them from going to see fireworks with their toddler son, James, on the Fourth of July, and she or he went right into a rage that lasted for hours.
Throughout this time, he claimed that she hit him with a shoe (which she admitted to doing) and likewise that she chased him round the home with a machete whereas he was holding James (which she has at all times denied).
She was convicted of home battery and intimidation, each felony counts, and he was given major custody of their son.
However in fact it did not finish there.
A custody battle started over James, and it is nonetheless going to at the present time.
Amber desires extra than simply visitation, and Andrew desires to transfer again to his house state of California, so there’s not likely a whole lot of center floor to be discovered there.
We have heard a whole lot of accusations as this has gone on — he has accused her of every thing from smoking meth whereas she was pregnant to abusing him so badly that he required surgical procedure.
However now issues are simply getting bizarre.
Final month, the 2 appeared in courtroom but once more for extra testimony, and the transcripts have been simply printed by The Solar.
And in these transcripts, we realized that Andrew had provided strangers an opportunity to spend time with James, who’s simply three years outdated, in the event that they gave him $10,000.
As Andrew defined, the entire thing started as a result of he’d had the concept to create a “being pregnant trivia card sport” that he known as Preggie Mind.
“It was impressed by the start of James,” he mentioned, “and studying all of the being pregnant books and I needed there to be a simple option to get all the identical data in a card sport.”
He known as the sport a “ardour mission,” however since he apparently did not have the cash to only produce the sport himself, he began a GoFundMe.
He did this to “see what the response can be,” however “it was nothing.”
“Any individual donated $25 and I reimbursed them,” he admitted.
Amber’s lawyer requested him if he’d arrange completely different ranges of rewards on the GoFundMe primarily based on the sum of money an individual donated, and Andrew confirmed that he had.
“And particularly for $10,000,” Amber’s lawyer went on, “you agreed that anybody might be flown out to have dinner with the creators and meet the little angel who began this all, that is referring to James, is that right?”
“So if somebody was keen to pay $10,000 you have been keen to allow them to have entry to James, is that right?”
Andrew responded with “No, no, no, not completely. I imply, the best way that I considered it was, since I am at all times within the care of James, that if I meet anyone, James is at all times gonna be with me.”
“However there’s such timeshares with my youngster or something like that, within the sense,” he insisted.
It looks like Amber’s lawyer actually needed to drive house how creepy this entire factor is, as a result of she repeated the problem as soon as once more, asking “However you might be particularly permitting entry to your youngster if somebody provides you adequate cash, is that right?”
He denied this, the lawyer rephrased the identical query once more, and Andrew denied once more, despite the fact that because it was identified, he had provided a dinner with him and James as a reward for a big donation.
“I used to be making an attempt to only see if there’s any curiosity on this sport,” Andrew mentioned.
He was then requested “So are you indicating that if had there been curiosity and cash had been offered that you’d haven’t allowed these individuals entry to you and James?”
To that, he mentioned he did not know.
So this is not an awesome search for Andrew, is it?
No matter his intentions or how he was pondering of the potential interplay had anybody truly donated that a lot cash, he actually ought to have recognized that this wasn’t an awesome thought.
We nonetheless do not assume this is sufficient to make Amber the higher alternative for major custody of poor James, however nonetheless, it is type of scary.
What do you consider this little stunt?
