TEEN Mom OG star Amber Portwood revealed she’s “not looking for approval.”

Amber, 31, made the claims after her 12-year-old daughter Leah has refused to speak to her.

The mom of two took to her Instagram Story on Friday to share a video of Nick Minaj discussing not needing approval from others.

The rapper said: “No matter how great your life is, you can’t even impress people.

“You just have to do you and make yourself happy and forget about trying to get everyone’s approval.”


MTV fans have watched Amber's strained relationship with Leah over the years.

On the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, the mother of two spoke to producers about her plan to write Leah a note apologizing for all of her mistakes in the past.

After admitting she hadn’t seen her daughter in months, she explained: "Even if I take responsibility for every single wrongdoing I’ve ever done, it just feels like it’s never enough.

"All I can say is sorry and try to move forward."


Amber continued: "I've written a letter to her just explaining how much I just want our real relationship back that we used to have."

When asked what her "expectations" were with the letter, she admitted: "I'm scared on her phone I'm blocked."

After she shared her plans to send the video to Leah's father Gary Shirley, Amber became emotional and broke down in tears.

She said: "How many times do I need to apologize? They don't hear me.

"How many times do I need to apologize? I'm trying."


Later in the episode, Leah ended up watching her mother's apology video with Gary, 34.

Leah told her father that she wasn't ready to accept Amber's apology after the Teen Mom OG star slammed her stepmother Kristina.

While Gary and Kristina explained that Amber's mistakes shouldn't define their relationship, the 12-year-old insisted: "I can't love somebody who tries to hurt other people."


Back in August, Amber told The Sun that she has reconciled with Gary and Kristina after she accused them of not helping mend her relationship with Leah. 

The Teen Mom OG star said: “Me, Gary, and Kristina, are doing amazing actually. We literally just went to a fair, all of us together, the whole family.

“We are in a much better spot than we were. We are doing good and we are in contact. I see my kids so obviously I have to see them.”
