    The issue came to the police when a responder received a text on a 911 stating that their life and their son’s life is in danger. There’s no news on what course of action would the Prosecutor’s Office follow. Things also seem grim for Portwood since this is not the first instance that she has gotten herself into legal trouble. She had two felony counts of domestic battery in December 2010 due to an incident with Shirley. Later she was arrested for violating her probation. She was sentenced to five years in prison on May 2012 but only served  17 months.



    Portwood and Glennon have been dating since 2017. Both share a 13-month-old son James, and she is also the mother of daughter Leah, 10, with ex-fiancé, Gary Shirley. Shirley had full custody of daughter Leah after the domestic battery in December 2010.
