The Teen Mom star clarified that there "was not a big blowout fight or anything like that" between her and her boyfriend, before admitting that they had "a discussion" before he left the house.

"Nobody was heated or anything, it was emotional because it had something to do with the fact of his parents being Vietnamese and me being who I am," Portwood said. "He was very upset about this, I was upset. We do not yell at each other, we do not hurt each other."
