Portwood described as 'depressed'

Amber Portwood, star of the MTV reality show 16 and Pregnant, has been admitted to the hospital after a suspected suicide attempt in Indiana yesterday.

According to TMZ, a source says the 21-year-old had been “depressed and threatening to take her own life."

Indiana law enforcement added that Portwood did not appear to be injured when they arrived at the scene, but she was immediately taken to hospital.

PopEater reported yesterday that Portwood had left an alarming telephone message with her 2-year-old daughter’s father, Gary Shirley.

Following their conversation, Shirley alerted a family member to Portwood’s depressive state and advised them to go to the reality star’s house.

Portwood remains in the hospital, where she is undergoing further evaluation.
