“I’ll be leaving #teenmomog sadly,” she captioned a cast photo that showed her with Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell. “The lack of respect is too much anymore! But still sending all my love!”

The 26-year-old’s announcement comes after an explosive fight between her and Abraham, 25, during the show’s reunion special.

I’ll be leaving #teenmomog sadly. The lack of respect is too much anymore! But still sending all my love!?

In the first part of the special that aired at the end of November, Portwood went at Abraham when pressed by Dr. Drew Pinsky about the status of their friendship.

“We used to be [friends] and then she decided to open up her crooked lips. She decided to do an interview saying something about how it’s good that [my daughter] Leah is with Gary [Shirley] and how my house probably smells like piss. You don’t do that,” Portwood fumed.

Then in part two, which aired December 5, Portwood stormed onto the stage, yelled and took a swing at the Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom actress after Abraham suggested that Portwood’s 46-year-old fiancé, Matt Baier, looked like “a pedophile.”

Things got worse as Abraham’s parents came out onto the stage at the same time as Baier, who pushed Abraham’s father, Michael, to the floor.

Hours after the episode aired Portwood took to social media to claim that the show had been unfairly edited. “They cut out Michael literally screaming in my face calling me a bitch and him putting his hands on Matt’s neck!!” Portwood wrote in an Instagram post. “After 8 years this is so disrespectful..I’ve worked too hard on myself to take this kind of disrespect.”

Abraham told Us Weekly exclusively the following day that MTV was doing everything in its power to make sure that she felt safe after Portwood’s violent attack.

“I didn’t have to attend the rest of the reunion or specials [because of what I consider Amber’s] criminal behavior,” the 16 and Pregnant alum, who has also feuded with Lowell and Bookout, told Us. “MTV legal has said I no longer will ever have to work with or around Maci, Catelynn or Amber.”

She added that MTV hoped that her dad wouldn’t press charges even though he “has every right to.”
