Things got worse for Edwards when his baby mama Maci Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney slapped him with separate restraining orders. Bookout claimed he threatened her while high on drugs, as McKinney alleged he threatened to put a bullet in his head. The orders were granted for two years, with Bookout and McKinney’s children Jayde, 3, and Maverick, 2, under the order as well. Edwards’ son Bentley, 9, with Bookout was dropped from the order.

Edwards’ wife Mackenzie did not respond to Radar’s request for comment. The couple is expecting a son in October.
