They split in secret!
It’s easy to think that all of the Teen Mom cast members have perfect, romantic marriages. As they work with their partners to raise their children and maintain a healthy household, sometimes we only see the best parts of what’s going on in their lives. But when the cameras stop rolling, sometimes a much different reality plays out.
This Teen Mom couple seemed like they had it all and lived a happy life on camera. Now, the truth is coming out: while things looked good on camera, they were secretly going through a divorce.
When it comes to Teen Mom, there are definitely two sides to every story. Sometimes fans think they’ve got it all figured out, and then a few months later the cast members come out with the truth of what was really going on. Now this picture perfect Teen Mom couple is spilling that they were actually going through a secret divorce while filming.
It’s no longer a secret that Mackenzie McKee and her husband Josh had a rocky relationship during her time on Teen Mom 3, but it wasn’t until after the show aired that it came out they were planning to split up.
Mackenzie spilled to Radar Online that she and Josh only “pretended to be together” while the show was filming. This came out while Mackenzie is filming an upcoming special for MTV.
“The first person I asked [about filming the new special] was Josh because I didn’t want to do it if he wasn’t on the same page as me,” she explained, adding, “We were split up and seeing other people during Teen Mom 3.”
“He would run and I just had to cry, ‘Oh my boyfriend is missing,’” she revealed. “It was honestly horrible.”
Though they were able to make it through the dark times, when MTV stopped filming, things “fell apart all over again.”
“I was in a really dark place,” Mackenzie admitted. “Then I had [our third child] Broncs [in 2016] and it got even worse. He actually left and ended up filing for divorce. I think we were separated for two months.”
As if things weren’t bad enough, Josh soon went on a social media rant accusing Mackenzie of cheating on him. She constantly denied the accusations, but fans aren’t so sure. Eventually, they managed to patch things up.
“Since then we opened up our own businesses and we got a house that’s a very nice home for our kids,” she said. “But we’re still a hot mess!”
Fans may start to see more of this “hot mess” in a familiar place, since Mackenzie is in talks to replace Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom OG!
