Teen Mom star Amber Portwood has been released from the hospital, TMZ reported.

The MTV reality star was spotted outside her home in Anderson, Ind., on Sunday, five days after allegedly threatening to commit suicide.

Portwood was admitted to St. John's hospital on Tuesday after Gary Shirley, her ex-fiance and the father of her 2-year-old daughter, Leah, called 911, saying Portwood "was having she was having a hard time with her life" and he didn't "want her to kill herself," according to TMZ.

Detective Mitch Carroll told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement that late Tuesday morning, "Anderson police responded to a call at a residence in the 1300 block of Pleasant Meadow Drive. According to the caller, 21-year-old Amber L. Portwood was depressed and threatening to end her life.  The victim, who did not appear to be injured, was transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation."

When police arrived, Portwood did not appear to be injured, but she was rushed to St. John's hospital for evaluation.

On Friday, Shirley tweeted: "Amber is safe and getting the help she needs right now. Thanks for your prayers and support."

Portwood has a rough few months: In December, she was charged with two felony counts of domestic battery, one felony count of neglect of a dependent and one misdemeanor count of domestic battery after striking Gary Shirley in front of their 2-year-old daughter, Leah.
