"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is out of the hospital after an alleged suicide attempt, Star magazine reports via Radar Online.
Multiple sources told the magazine that it's likely Portwood was held for 72 hours for a psychiatric evaluation. According to Indiana, Portwood's home state, a patient can be involuntarily committed if the patient "presents a substantial risk that he/she will harm himself/herself or others."
A source told Star on Tuesday that the 21-year-old had admitted to hospital workers that she had taken pills.
The young mom was rushed to a local emergency room Tuesday after EMTs found her going in and out of consciousness. Her ex-fiance, Gary Shirley, had called 911 to have someone check on her after Portwood threatened to commit suicide during an argument over the phone.
A source told Life & Style Wednesday that the argument stemmed from Portwood's belief that Shirley had cheated on her, which he denied.
Serious troubles are no stranger to the on-again, off-again pair. On June 9, Portwood pleaded guilty to two counts of felony domestic battery. The case stemmed from an episode of MTV's "Teen Mom" in which the 21-year-old could be seen repeatedly punching and hitting Shirley. And in May, she lost custody of daughter, Leah, when a judge ruled that Shirley would be a more suitable parent.
The new season of "Teen Mom" premieres July 5.
