This has been a rough year for the women of Teen Mom. Giant life events have happened to almost all of the MTV cast members. However, nothing is more difficult than the death of a loved one. After a long and difficult battle with cancer, this Teen Mom star has passed away as on Monday, Dec. 9. The family revealed this tragic news in an Instagram post, where they were able to revel in her life. Naturally, everyone is heartbroken about the news coming, especially with Christmas right on the horizon — even the show’s fans sent condolences.
There have been plenty of tragedies on Teen Mom throughout the years. From miscarriages to divorce to arrests to the death of loved ones, it never gets easier for family members or fans. It seems like 2019 has been a particularly hard year for the reality TV stars.
“I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But its been my life,” she wrote on Instagram. “Like anyone else I want what’s best for my kids and I want to be happy. With time away from Teen Mom I’ve started to look at my life differently and I know I need to make changes.
“I’m starting that now,” she wrote.
“Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood made him feel like he ‘dropped the ball’ on plans to see fireworks because the roads were blocked….Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood then bashed his character,” the affidavit from the incident states, as reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
“Mr. Glennon stated Ms. Portwood picked up a machete towards him and [the baby],” the report states. “Mr. Glennon stated he locked himself and [the baby] into the office. Mr. Glennon stated she hit the door with the machete and kicked the door and broke the handle. Mr. Glennon stated that is when he called for help.”
Of course, none of these tragedies can compare to losing a parent.
As fans know, this has been an ongoing fear in Makenzie McKee’s life since January of 2018, when she revealed on Twitter that her mother had been diagnosed with brain cancer.
Just a few weeks later, she referred to her mother as the “healthiest person I know”, and she wasn’t wrong — Angie Douthit was a marathon runner, didn’t drink, and didn’t smoke.
“I am so sad. I can barely breathe. I can not lose her. She did ask that I blog her whole journey and make a documentary in case something does happen we will always have that,” Makenzie said. “I know God will use her to speak to others.”
