It's all coming out!
Even though many of the Teen Mom OG cast members are facing intense difficulties during this season of the show, one of the most potentially fatal challenges of the season is Ryan Edwards’ drug addiction. Ryan’s wife Mackenzie recently revealed that Ryan’s addiction has been getting more and more severe, and he was spending up to a $10,000 a week on his habit. Needless to say, the addiction was getting into seriously frightening territories.
It’s also been threatening something else: Ryan’s relationship with Bentley. Maci made it very clear that she didn’t want her son to be exposed to drug addiction, especially while Ryan was at such a low point. She told her baby daddy very firmly that the only way he would get to spend time with Bentley unsupervised would be if he passed a drug test and came back entirely clean.
Unfortunately, not everyone is so convinced of his sobriety. In addition to drinking alcohol on camera, some of Ryan’s recent behaviors have fans thinking he won’t be able to pass a drug test after all.
Now, the truth is coming out, and so are the results. Did Ryan manage to prove his sobriety, or is it back to rehab for the embattled star?
Even though Maci wants the best for Bentley, she’s made it clear that she doesn’t want him in touch with his father until Ryan gets clean. This has obviously been hard for Ryan to cope with, as he’s reportedly sent her threatening texts demanding to see his son. Even so, Maci hasn’t budged on her terms — Ryan must pass a drug test while she is pregnant if he wants to spend time with Bentley unsupervised.
Ryan spent three weeks in rehab to deal with his addiction, and was released from the program early despite protestations from the staff (and Maci). Naturally, the brevity of the treatment has many fans skeptical about how effective it would be.
A recently released deleted scene got fans talking about whether or not Ryan was sober. In the clip, Ryan wears sunglasses as Mackenzie drives them to look at a new house. Many fans thought that Ryan was slurring his speech and dozing off, indicating a potential relapse. Check out the full video below.
In a recent episode, Maci made it perfectly clear where she stood on the issue. “Given the events of the last several months, it’s going to be necessary for me to ensure Bentley is not put at risk,” she texted Ryan. “I’m going to need you to pass a drug screening, hair and urine, at my expense immediately prior to you taking him for a visit.”
Now the time has come for Ryan to prove his sobriety, and according to an insider who spoke with Radar Online, the results were pretty surprising to many. “He did take a drug test,” the insider revealed, “And he passed it. He’s taken several and passed them. He’s seven months sober this month.”
In fact, Ryan is doing very well in his recovery, according to the insider. “Everyone is blown away by how well Ryan has been doing. His family and friends can’t imagine how hard it is for him to fight his addiction every day.”
The insider also gave compliments to Mackenzie for her support during Ryan’s recovery. “Makenzie gave him an ultimatum,” they revealed. “She didn’t leave when things got tough. She chose to stand by and support him.”
