“They went through all their money,” a source close to the couple told Radar. “That is the only reason they continue to film.”
Ryan's wife has been working at her father’s insurance company twice a week, the insider said.
They are currently living with Ryan’s parents Jen and Larry. “It’s rent free and free childcare,” the source said. “Jen helps with the kids a lot.”
Ryan is dad to Bentley, 10, with ex Maci, while Mackenzie is mom to son Hudson from a previous marriage. They share son Jagger, who turns one in October.
Ryan and Mackenzie announced that they quit the series in July 2018 because they claimed network didn’t want to show him as a recovering addict. Mackenzie did appear on a few episodes with Ryan’s parents.
Substance Abuse Issues
As Radar readers know, Ryan has had a difficult few years. He was issued a citation for simple possession of heroin in March 2017. Police confiscated 14 hypodermic needles. One contained heroin, according to the citation obtained by Radar.
On his wedding day to Mackenzie in May 2017, he drove while under the influence. He was filmed for the series falling asleep at the wheel and slurring his words. He entered treatment and left after just 21 days.
He was arrested in March 2018 for petition to revoke after failing a drug test in January 2018. He tested positive for opiates and morphine in a urine sample.
Back In Jail
He was arrested again in July 2018 for breaking probation from a past possession of heroin charge. He was sentenced in both cases.
Another Rehab Stint
In October 2018, Radar broke that he entered rehab for the third time. He missed the birth of Jagger.
In Trouble Again
But he was arrested for outstanding warrants on January 23, 2019. He was charged with simple possession of heroin for breaking probation from a past 2017 possession of heroin charge executed by Red Bank.
He was also charged with theft of services under $1,000 when he allegedly failed to pay a $36 bar tab in Hamilton County. The case was dismissed. He was released from jail on April 15.
