What's happening to this family?
Many of the Teen Mom cast members are living happy, safe, and loving lives right now. They’ve managed to overcome some serious rocky terrain with baby daddies, drug addiction, and even abuse, and are now living in much better situations. Of course, that’s not the case for everyone.
Many of the stars still find themselves in and out of courtrooms, constantly fighting with exes, and struggling with addiction. One couple in particular may be bearing the worst of it right now. According to one insider, they’ve lost the custody of not one but both of their children!
Even for those cast members who are living easier lives, they still rely on the strength and support of fans who cheer them on when times get tough. But Mackenzie Standifer and Ryan Edwards may not be the most popular of couples these days. As they continue to fight Maci Bookout for custody of Bentley and bad-mouth her and Taylor McKinney whenever they get a chance, they’re losing fans fast. Now it seems they may also be losing custody of their own children!
According to one source who claims to be an insider, things are looking worse than ever for these two.
“Turns out [Ryan] failed a court ordered drug test for meth and various types of pills last Friday morning (March 2) thus getting his visitation with Bentley denied,” the insider claimed. “He actually tried to use synthetic urine to pass his drug test, but got caught when he dropped and busted the urine on the floor.” Ouch! Even for Ryan, that’s some serious bad luck.
Apparently, Ryan is still trying to clean up his act. The source goes on to claim that Ryan checked himself in to another rehab on March 3 that “MTV is footing the bill for.” But Mackenzie doesn’t want this information to surface.
“[Mackenzie] is trying to keep everything quiet by telling everyone that [Ryan] is out of town attending a truck driving school so that he can drive a truck for Coke, who father Larry works for,” the insider alleged. However, Mackenzie is dealing with a custody nightmare all her own!
“As a result of this Mack has lost temporary custody of [her son] Hudson to her ex hubby [Zach Stephens], who is also fighting to make it permanent,” the insider claimed. “So, the only positive things that may have came from this is sweet Hudson is finally safe with his daddy where he obviously needs to be and is better off… and maybe [Ryan] can get the help he so very much needs!”
They add that Ryan’s addiction was allegedly much worse than how it was presented on the show. “[Ryan] had a $1500 a day habit that included not only heroin, but cocaine, meth, xanax, and klonopin,” they shared, adding, “It’s really sad that [Mackenzie] has basically chosen her husband over her child.”
This insider only shared their tips to a Teen Mom social media group, but they’ve been spreading through the community like wildfire. Apparently even Mackenzie Edwards caught wind of them, because she reached out to Radar Online to set the record straight!
