It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Douthit, whose putting some of the show’s other stars to shame with her itchy social media finger, as she’s suggested she’s married, declared she’s pregnant, and had an online meltdown within the span of a day.
The 18-year-old first took to her Facebook Monday, declaring, “And yes. For everyone wondering, im 12 weeks pregnant…. time to tell the truth.”
She then jumped onto Twitter and wrote she’s “been married for months but im not allowed to get pregs with my husband without miami girls subtweeting… do i look like I care????” (Subtweeting is short for subliminally tweeting, calling someone out on Twitter without actually mentioning their name.)
Of course, Mackenzie, who has a 1-year-old son named Gannon, got plenty of reactions for her life-changing proclamations, and followed up with a Facebook post on why it took her so long to break her silence about the marriage and pregnancy, saying she didn’t want to be roasted by her peers over her actions.
She wrote, “Yes I love evrryone checking on me, but yes I have reached my breaking point and have literally been through hell and back these last three days. I have kept this a secret because im probably the easiest target of all miami to judge.I only told cause people are asking why im fat lol…. So im not texting anyone back right now I need some time to myself. So sorry if ur mad cause im not textinf back. Or mad cause you didnt know about this. …”
In subsequent Facebook posts, she referenced an ongoing battle with insomnia, leading to a disconcerting meltdown in which she said she wanted a firearm.
“They say you die faster without sleep than withought food….. hmm how and why am I alive,” she tweeted, adding “I need a gun…. now.”
The new season of Teen Mom 3 premieres on MTV August 26 at 10/9c.
