Maci Bookout is expected to face baby daddy Ryan Edwards in court on April 2 after she filed a protection order against him. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the judge’s ruling in the Teen Mom OG star's case.
A clerk of court for Hamilton County Circuit Court in Tennessee exclusively told Radar that the judge continued the April 2 hearing until May 21 at 1:30pm.
“The temporary protection order will stay in affect until their court hearing,” the clerk explained. Bookout's husband Taylor McKinney's protection order hearing against Edwards has also been postponed until May 21.
In the protection order exclusively obtained by Radar, Bookout, 26, asked her son Bentley, 9, with Edwards, 30, and her children Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 1, with McKinney be protected under the order.
“He has left voicemail messages threatening to show up at my house and take my son,” she claimed in the court papers. “He has made threats to show up and hurt me if I don’t answer my phone.” During her son’s baseball game in May 2017, she claimed Edwards “showed up under the influence of heroin and got in my face, yelling and threatening to hurt me.”
She claimed his behavior is “getting worse.” “I am fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats,” she wrote. Bookout is requesting that Edwards refrain from contacting or going near her or her three children.

Edwards drove high to his May wedding to wife Mackenzie Standifer, who is pregnant with their child. He was caught on camera falling asleep at the wheel and slurring his words. He entered rehab for heroin use soon after. Bookout wouldn’t let Edwards see their son until he passed a drug test. She eventually allowed him to see their son under the condition that his parents Jen and Larry supervise the visits.
