A clerk for Hamilton County Register of Deeds in Tennessee exclusively told Radar that the IRS hit Edwards, 30, with a federal tax lien for $119,416.24 on March 27, 2018. The clerk confirmed the lien remains unpaid. But, a source for Edwards insists the lien was paid off in April 2018.
The tax lien comes after Edwards and his wife Mackenzie, 22, told E! News that they are not returning to Teen Mom OG because the network “doesn’t want to show Ryan as a recovering addict.” Edwards’ dad Larry confirmed to Radar that they “have not been filming” for the upcoming season.
It appears Edwards’ pregnant wife is doing her best to pay off the lien. She recently launched Mackenzie Edwards Wedding and Events. Her wedding planning packages range from $150 to $1,500. “My personal mission is to see your dreams come to fruition,” she explained on the website. “Sometimes it can be hard to take all of the thoughts, dreams and visions in your head and turn them into a reality. That is where I step in. From start to finish, whatever your needs may be, I will be here to help and guide you every step of the way. The stress of planning your own wedding can take a toll on ones self and really take away from the whole experience. With my help, we can partner together to create you the wedding of your dreams and alleviate the stress factor therefore creating a priceless and winning combo.”
She also returned to Instagram in July, where she has been promoting paid ads.
Mackenzie admitted on an episode of TMOG that her husband spent $10,000 a week on drugs. His drug of choice was heroin.
The trouble started when he was pulled over on March 12, 2017. An officer confiscated 14 hypodermic needles, one of which was loaded with heroin, and a bag with a dark substance inside. He was issued a citation.
He was caught on camera driving high to his May 2017 wedding. He checked into rehab for heroin abuse shortly after. But the trouble continued when he was arrested on March 27, 2018 for petition to revoke after he failed a scheduled drug test on January 17, 2018. He tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample. He got “six months probation and five public work days with random drug tests in between,” a source told Radar.
He was then arrested for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation, on July 23, 2018. Radar exclusively reported a warrant was issued for his arrest after he missed a court date. The first count of simple possession of heroin – petition to revoke has been dismissed. For the second possession of heroin - petition to revoke charge, he was given an 11-month and 29 day-suspended sentence. Edwards must complete six months of probation and five public work days.
