The Teen Mom Tea Instagram account recently asked followers if they felt "Amber doesn't see Leah as her own person able to think for herself, just a vessel for her narcissistic supply."

According to the survey, 98 percent of the account's followers agreed.

On this week's premiere of MTV's Teen Mom OG, Amber revealed she hadn't seen Leah or spoken to her in a while.

The reality TV star told cameras: "Leah and I are still struggling with our relationship. My relationship with her has changed a lot.

"I haven't seen her in quite some time."

Later on in the episode, Amber admitted she was hurt by comments Leah made last season, in which the pre-teen claimed that her mother had "just birthed" her and then "left" her.

The MTV star said: "What she said about me was very hurtful" to which Amber's mom added: "I was a bit shocked."

A tearful Amber then claimed: "Someone is in her ear. And it's not right."

Despite her many attempts, Amber was unable to see her daughter on Easter and the star explained how her daughter never responds to her texts.

Speaking to a producer, the college student said: "I feel very stressed right now. A little sad. [Gary and Kristina] haven't been answering any of my phone calls or text messages. I was ignored."

"All I do is text Leah all the time, I don't get anything back. Never. Not anymore."

After multiple text messages she had sent to Leah on camera, Amber admitted it had been "a long time" since she had spoken with her eldest child – but wouldn't "give up" on their relationship.

"I can't count the days. It's just going to make me more depressed. I don't understand why I'm getting treated this way right now. I'm not going to give up on her."

However, Amber's comments were likely filmed prior to her reconciliation with ex Gary and his other half Kristina, with who Leah lives.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the MTV star said: “Me, Gary, and Kristina are doing amazing actually. We literally just went to a fair, all of us together, the whole family.

“We are in a much better spot than we were. We are doing good and we are in contact. I see my kids so obviously I have to see them.” 

The 31-year-old mom-of-two also said their schedules don’t always work out the way she'd like, explaining: “We are seeing each other as much as we can, but Kristina and me are both in school actually, and the kids are in school now too.”

Fans of Teen Mom OG will recall Leah and Amber had a falling out over her daughter's 12th birthday party.  

Several hours after the episode aired, Amber took to Instagram to brand Kristina a "liar" and claim that she "spoils" Leah. 

The TV star said on social media at the time: "When you're a w***e, you're a w***e. When you're a homewrecker, you're a homewrecker. When you're a liar, you're a liar.

"I'm not jealous of Kristina, there is nothing about Kristina that even makes me jealous in any sense. I don't try to be mean, I'm just telling the truth." 

She then added: "[Leah] respects her because she brings her out to Starbucks, gets her nails done and spends over a thousand something dollars of clothing on her. 

"Hell, I'd respect her too. I was raised to not spoil my child. Kristina doesn't do anything for Leah. She doesn't take care of my daughter.” 

Amber is also the mother to 3-year-old son James, who she shares with ex Andrew Glennon.

The TV personality recently slammed Andrew for publicly claiming she hit their child and is now demanding full custody of their toddler.

Amber and her ex-boyfriend Andrew, 37, have been in a nasty custody war over James since their split in 2019.
