'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood Checks into Rehab

After a recent suicide attempt, Teen Mom's Amber Portwood reportedly checked into a rehab facility in Malibu on Sunday.

Earlier this month, Portwood -- who has 2-year-old daughter Leah with on-again, off-again boyfriend Gary Shirley -- was hospitalized in Indiana after she was found unconscious by police with a rope around her neck. Five days prior to the incident, she had been found guilty on two counts of felony domestic battery for allegedly getting physical with Shirley.

Friends and fans of Portwood, 21, recently started a Facebook page called "Help Support Amber Portwood," where they wished her well and urged her to get help.

The reality star's brother, Shawn Portwood, posted on the page's wall. "Best wishes to my sister while in rehab. For everyone who might not know, it is not for drugs btw."

Another pal chimed in, writing, "I talked to her last night and she sounds amazing and positive! She has a great support system that stands beside her and are supporting her in this life changing journey."

The original four members of 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, including Portwood, Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell, will return for a third season of the show, beginning on July 5. It is not yet known if Portwood's recent troubles will be featured on the series.
