At least Amber Portwood can just focus on her recovery without having to worry about footing the bill.
"I don't know who is paying for it," a source close to the "Teen Mom" star exclusively tells E! News. "All I know is that it's a lot and someone with money is paying."Story: Is it time to turn the cameras away from 'Teen Moms'?
Mysterious. Portwood, who's from Indiana, checked into Seasons Recovery Center in Malibu last month, two weeks after being hospitalized when authorities responded to a 911 call from Gary Shirley, in which he told the operator he was afraid Amber was going to try to commit suicide.

And Shirley's not the only one concerned these days.
Amber's brother, Shawn Portwood, tells us that MTV's cameras are chronicling his sister's rehab experience, which presumably will be woven into a "Teen Mom" narrative at some point.
"They filmed a scene where she and I talked on the phone the other day," Shawn says. "Her doctor and I do not agree with it, but there's nothing I can do."
But on a brighter note, Shirley flew to California with daughter Leah today to take part in family week at Seasons. Shawn says he'll be taking part in the reunion by phone.
