Teen Mom Whitney Purvis 'threatened to slit ex's throat & poison him' in texts before arrest for 'terroristic threats'

TEEN Mom Whitney Purvis "threatened to slit her ex's throat and poison him" in alarming text messages sent before her arrest for "terroristic threats."

The Sun confirmed Whitney, 31, was booked on October 14, 2021 for the shocking felony from an incident that occurred on September 27, 2021, according to Bartow County, Georgia jail records.

According to the police report obtained exclusively by The Sun, on September 27, 2021 around 8:00 AM Central Time, a Bartow County Police officer was dispatched to the Bartow County Jail in reference to a threats report.

Upon the officer's arrival, Whitney's ex-boyfriend told the officer he was being threatened by her from messages on his phone he received in the morning from Whitney. 

Her first message stated: "I swear, if it is the last thing I do, I'm gonna kill you."

The officer reported the message included the details: "'Slit your throat, poison you, make you inhale toxic gas,' and other various things."

While the officer was present, Whitney called her ex's phone number. 

The officer spoke with Whitney, stating his position and asked her why she sent the threatening messages.

According to the report, Whitney claimed she was motivated to send them because her ex "had cheated on her, beat her, and humiliated her."

Whitney shared with the officer she had intentions of going to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office to file a report against Mason. 

Evaluating the events, the officer wrote in his report: "Due to the messages and Whitney admitting to sending the messages, I secured a warrant for Felony Terroristic Threats for Whitney's arrest."

Whitney was booked on a charge of "a felony of Terroristic Threats and Acts" on October 14, 2021. 

Yesterday, The Sun confirmed Whitney was released the following day, October 15, 2021, on a $5,000 bond.

In Whitney's mugshot, she looked worlds away from the young and sprightly teen the world saw when she first appeared on 16 and Pregnant.

Whitney was wearing a baggy, dark gray t-shirt, her hair seemed unbrushed, and she appeared to be tired and grim.

The Sun has reached out to Whitney but she has yet to comment.


Long time Teen Mom fans may recognize Whitney from the first season of 16 & Pregnant. 

On the show, she gave birth to her first baby boy Weston Jr. in 2009 with her then-boyfriend Weston Sr. Gosa.

Since then, Weston Sr. and Whitney welcomed a second child in 2014, River.

According to court documents, the children's legal and physical custody transferred fully to their father on April 30, 2018 and granted Whitney visitation rights every other weekend. 


The Teen Mom Instagram fan account, Teen Mom Chatter, shared the details of the arrest with fans.

The account captioned the post: "MTV sure knows how to pick them!"

A fan replied: "I watched her first episode on 16 & Pregnant the other day and she seemed so quiet. I just started following her on Instagram and she seems great."

A second agreed and posted: "I'm so shocked: I remember her well and she seemed so chill and seemed to be a good mother. I hope her kids are okay."

Yet a third chimed in and said: "Wow, that's so sad. What kind of mother wouldn't do what they need to do to be able to see their kids or regain some kind of custody."
