"It was all thanks to Amber," the insider told Radar Online. "She made sure Gary made as much as she did when they were together."
Radar also reports that Portwood's former fiance, Matt Baier, also gets $5,000 to $1,000 per episode.
The 2016 season of Teen Mom OG had 13 episodes. Therefore, the main cast would have made $325,000. They also make $1,000 in bonuses for appearing in specials and after-shows, as well as earn money from the products they endorse on social media.
The Ashley's Reality Roundup reported last year that his claim was true, adding that the other main stars were paid around the same. Radar's source said Lind was making $200,000 per season before quitting.
Back in 2012, Star Magazine reported that Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans was paid $75,000 per season at the time, with her mother making $65,000.
