Things are getting serious!
No matter how mature sixteen-year-olds might feel, it’s generally too young to make serious decisions about life in the long term. But when the cast of Teen Mom found themselves pregnant in their mid-teens, they had no choice but to make some of the hardest decisions they would ever be faced with. Although the cast has come a long way since their debut on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, it’s impossible to say that they haven’t made any mistakes along the way. Not to mention that when you make a decision about pregnancy, that decision is permanent.
Way back in the day, Maci Bookout made the decision to keep her first son, Bentley, and try her best to raise him alongside her boyfriend, Ryan Edwards. Maci’s love for her son makes it clear she made the right decision in keeping him, but keeping things up with Ryan was another story altogether. They split soon after their son was born.
Just because Maci isn’t dating Ryan doesn’t mean he’s entirely out of her life. Because he’s still the father of her child, Maci has to see Ryan on a regular basis in order to co-parent with him… but apparently Ryan hasn’t been too happy with her methods lately.
In fact, things between them seem to be getting worse than ever. Maci has just revealed that Ryan has been threatening her in order to see his son.
To say that Maci Bookout’s relationship with her ex Ryan Edwards is a rollercoaster is a huge understatement. It seems that they go from being on the same page to being in an all-out feud every few weeks. Just a week ago, in fact, it looked like Maci would be attending Ryan’s wedding to Mackenzie Standifer… and now it seems that Ryan is threatening her!
Co-parenting with an ex is enough to put strain on anyone — Teen Mom has proven that time and time again — but co-parenting with an ex who is struggling with addiction is presents its own unique challenges. In fact, that’s something that Maci Bookout and Chelsea Houska have in common as Chelsea’s ex Adam struggles with his own addiction.
Maci has recently put her foot down when it comes to Ryan’s drug use. It turns out that she can’t control her ex’s actions, but she can control her son. She’s recently demanded that Ryan take a drug test in front of her before he can spend time with Bentley.
Recently, Ryan said that he was ready to go through with the drug test if it meant getting his son back. Unfortunately, he admitted that he wasn’t positive he’d be able to pass the drug test at all.
Now, things between Maci and Ryan are getting tense again, as Maci admits that Ryan has been threatening her over text. In a sneak peek of this season’s Teen Mom OG premiere, Maci discusses Father’s Day plans with her husband, Taylor McKinney.
“I texted Jen [Ryan’s mom] and asked them what their plans are and she said they were going to do a cookout or something later and I said I would that bring Bently by for a little bit but that I didn’t want to do this in front of the cameras,” she said. “It’s going to be Bentley’s first time being around him and seeing him after rehab.”
Apparently, Ryan hasn’t asked about seeing his son, but has been “threatening” her. “Ryan hasn’t asked me,” Maci said. “All he’s done is threaten me for three days about seeing his child.”
