Having gone through some seriously rough patches with ex Ste Rankine as they tried to figure out how to co-parent on Teen Mom UK, Amber Butler thought things might get a little easier after he broke up with his girlfriend, Kirsty.
However, in this first look at this week’s new episode, the mum-of-one is quickly finding out that that might not be the case, after Kirsty makes a comment on a photo of Amber and Ste on the mum’s birthday.
In this sneak peek at the upcoming episode, Amber explains what’s happened with Kirsty at her birthday dinner: “I was having a mint time at my birthday party but Ste’s ex-girlfriend Kirsty has really killed my mood. I posted a picture of me and Ste on social media and she commented that she slept with him three days ago. I need to speak to Ste.”
Taking Ste outside for a one-to-one chat about what she’s just found out: “I asked you if I could upload a picture and what else did I say? Will it cause problems? So I’ve uploaded that picture but I’ve noticed that Kirsty commented on it saying something about ‘oh funny isn’t it when he was sleeping with me a couple of days ago’.
“So I’m not bothered about that, obviously sleep with her whenever you want, sleep with her tonight if you want, but all I’m saying is I just don’t want all that.”
Ste tells Amber that he “won’t see her anymore ever again,” adding: “I’ve only seen her because I’m single and I have no commitments, it’s weird right because we’re exes.”
Agreeing, Amber admits that she’s got reservations about getting involved while Kirsty is still on the scene, explaining: “I’m sorry that I had to put you in this situation and I don’t want any arguing, I’ll even hold your hand while I’m saying it, I’m not falling out with you but I can’t do anything with you while she’s still involved, I can’t I’m sorry.”
She continues: “I feel like crying, I can’t be bothered with it all no more, I genuinely just can’t be bothered with it.”
