Gary Shirley, the boyfriend of original “Teen Mom” star Amber Portwood and father of little Leah, has been battling some health concerns recently. Not only did he injure his legs and ankles, but he was also tweeting about being immobile for upwards of two weeks. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report released on Feb. 2, “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley is now sharing an update on his health and it appears that he is in lots of pain. In fact, he wrote that his legs are “killing” him, though not in the literal sense.
“The 2 steel plates in my ankle is killing me right now from weather,” “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley revealed on Twitter after some days of silence in regards to his health condition. Gary got injured while dancing “The Electric Slip” in a nightclub earlier this year, and he was left with practically no use of both his legs. His knees and his ankles were terribly injured in this accident.
However, “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley is fighting through the pain. He has revealed that he is studying to become a nurse, so he can give his daughter Leah the best life possible. Amber is still in jail and will be for quite some time. She took a 5-year sentence in favor of drug rehab, and while she is missing out on some crucial years with her daughter, she believed that the decision was right for her. What do you think of her jail sentence? And do you think “Teen Mom” star Gary Shirley should be more careful with his health given Leah is all he has?
