She's going to court!
All of the main Teen Mom cast members have one thing in common: the fact that they all got pregnant between 16 and 17. Even though they may not always see eye-to-eye, they still have this one commonality that brings them together. However, there’s someone that could also share in this experience: Ryan Edwards’ new wife, Mackenzie Standifer.
Mackenzie was still in high school when she became pregnant with her son, Hudson. Like many of the other girls, her split from her baby daddy meant that she’s been dealing with custody battles for years now.
Even though Mackenzie has been seen raising Hudson in recent episodes, things might be changing for Mrs. Edwards before we know it. It seems her baby daddy is taking her to court ― and he might not be satisfied until he has taken Hudson away from her.
Just when it seems all of the custody battles of Teen Mom have ended, yet another one comes out of the woodwork ― and this one is coming from an unexpected source. Apparently, Mackenzie Standifer and her baby daddy are at odds over their son, Hudson.
Mackenzie Standifer has only recently become a fixture of Teen Mom OG as she defends Ryan during his custody battle with Maci Bookout. As Ryan battles Maci to see his son, Mackenzie might be fighting her own fight for her kid as well.
Ryan has a new stepson, a toddler named Hudson. His baby daddy Zach Stephens hasn’t appeared on Teen Mom OG, but it seems like he wants more custody of Hudson than he currently has.
“[Zach] wants to take Hudson from [Mackenzie],” a source told Radar Online. According to this source, Mackenzie herself isn’t doing much heavy lifting when it comes to raising her son. “She never has Hudson,” they revealed. “It’s her mom, Ryan’s mom Jen or Zach watching him. Zach doesn’t feel with her is where Hudson needs to be.”
On top of that, Hudson doesn’t seem to enjoy spending time at Mackenzie’s house. The source claims that Hudson “screams” when he has to leave his father’s home. “He says he can’t stand being there,” the source went on.
Zach has a recent victory over Mackenzie in the court system, too. He recently had child support adjusted in his favor. “Defendant shall pay to Plaintiff the sum of $245 per month to be paid at the rate of $113.07 bi-weekly,” a court order from April 7, 2017 order read, according to Radar. The source goes on, “In court papers from Nov. 29, 2016, Zach was initially ordered to pay $503 per month to be paid at a rate of $232.15 bi-weekly.”
According to Mackenzie, the claims that have been made against her are “false.”
