‘Teen Mom’ Star Maci Bookout Claims Ex Ryan Edwards Still Isn’t Sober
It's been a whirlwind the past couple of seasons on Teen Mom OG for stars Maci Bookout and ex Ryan Edwards. While Maci's main goal is her family and keeping them safe, Ryan Edwards, who is expecting his first child with wife Mackenzie Edwards, has had other duties to take care of. Back in June 2017, Ryan checked into rehab after hitting 'rock bottom', and back in November it was revealed he was spending $10,000 a week on drugs, specifically heroin.
Maci and Ryan share a son, Bentley, who is 9. Maci has sole custody of Bentley, and he gets to see Ryan only if his parents are around. And while their relationship was good for a little bit, even enough for Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney to get an invite to the wedding, things quickly changed. As we previously, Maci filed for an order of protection from Ryan after he threatened her husband that he would "show up at his house and put a bullet through his head". After that, Ryan was arrested for violating his probation related to a previous heroin possession.
In a new clip for tomorrows episode of Teen Mom OG, Maci claims that Ryan is still not clean, as she has friends that have proof of this. In the clip, which you can watch here, Maci can be seen speaking to her mom as she breaks the news that Ryan and wife Mackenzie are expecting and her mom is shocked, as we all were.
Her mom starts out by saying, "Uh, I'm sorry, what? I thought Ryan wasn't about that life right now". But then goes on to say maybe a baby is what he needs. Maci makes a point by saying "Maybe, maybe not. I mean, I feel like if this don't do the trick, then absolutely nothing will". Maci then tells her mom that "My people know people. I mean, he's not clean. He's not. That's just it. He's not."
We really do hope that this baby, which the announcement came after Ryan was released from jail, will help Ryan kick his drug problem. You can catch Teen Mom OG on MTV on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
