Gary, Mackenzie, and Maci are at odds?
The battle between Maci and Ryan has dragged on for years, practically since Bentley’s birth. It appears that Ryan is growing increasingly frustrated with Maci’s temperamental personality and her apparent struggle to be fair about him spending time with their nine year old son. In a recent episode of Teen Mom, Ryan discusses the continued fight for some good old fashioned quality time with his boy.
Ryan is stressed enough about the ordeal, without the help of anyone else’s opinion. Amber Portwood’s baby daddy Gary Shirley decided to add his two cents in on Ryan and Maci’s battle for their son Bentley. Gary took to Twitter with his opinion on the matter, stating that he feels Maci was completely justified in her decision to keep Bentley away from Ryan during the holidays.
Of all the Teen Mom drama we’ve covered, this feud seems to be the most unlikely of them all.
Things are never amicable between Maci and Ryan when it comes to their nine-year-old son Bentley. The two are always at odds when it comes to making sure each parent spends enough quality time with Bentley.
While their constant squabbling is frustrating for everyone (even the viewers), it seems that Gary Shirley had more than a few words for fellow teen dad Ryan Edwards when he backed Maci’s decision to keep Bentley with her for Thanksgiving.
Holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions are just a few of the days that present the biggest problem for co-parenting couples. So far, Maci has been unwilling to compromise with Ryan and his family when it comes to splitting holidays.
It appears that Gary takes Bookout’s side, tweeting: “Bentley CHOSE to go to Texas. He didn’t want to go with his dad. Maci gave him a choice & is taking the blame as a real mom would #teenmomog.”
If he thought his opinion would not be refuted, he was wrong. Ryan’s fiancée Mackenzie came to her man’s defense, responding, “..I’d fact check that one.”
Back and Forth Battle
Gary seemed prepared to defend his point of view, and even challenges her for any pressing details that might prove his assessment of the situation to be flawed. “She asked him point blank where he wanted to go and who with. If you have a different story or side, let us know what it is,” he tweeted.
“Well when asked by Ryan and myself it was a different answer,” Mackenzie tweeted.
