Amber Portwood is getting some love and support from one of her "Teen Mom" co-stars as she continues to battle her boyfriend over custody while dealing with criminal charges.

Catelynn Baltierra announced on Wednesday that she was leaving Michigan and heading to Indiana to be a support system for Portwood.

"There is always two sides to every story... u r only hearing one side," Baltierra wrote on Twitter.

She followed up with, "I love you [Amber] I'm on my way to you now."

Baltierra immediately began getting backlash on social media from fans who thought she was giving Portwood a pass for the allegations of domestic violence.

As we reported, the "Teen Mom OG" star has been charged with domestic battery, criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon and domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old.

She allegedly went after her boyfriend and baby daddy, Andrew Glennon, with a machete while he was holding their 1-year-old son, James.

Fans lashed out to Baltierra that she should be focused on getting Portwood help for mental health issues.

"A real friend would make sure she’s getting the medical help she so obviously needs because this is just going to keep happening until she gets her rage and mental illness under control," a follower suggested.

Baltierra quickly cleared the air and let everyone know that she was not giving Portwood an out for an excuse, and that she recognizes her friend needs help.

"I DO NOT condone abuse! I AM supporting a friend In need!" the reality star explained.

She added, "when I went through all my crazy mental illness stuff my friend helped, me supported me, and loved me!!! And I’m going to do the same!"

27-year-old Baltierra has been open about her struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts in that past, much like Portwood has public discussed her bipolar disorder.

The support by Baltierra comes the day after Portwood posted a cryptic message on Instagram. Along with a photo of a shattered heart, Portwood wrote, "I am so heartbroken right now ... omg?"

Portwood has hinted that there was cheating going on in the relationship, and although she hasn't said it, appears to be pointing a finger at her baby daddy.
