“Ryan and Mackenzie are off and on,” a source told Radar. “Things are way worse than they seem. Neither one can stand each other!”
According to the source, Mackenzie's mother is “afraid” to intervene because Mackenzie has allegedly “threatened to take Hudson away from her before.” Hudson, 4, is Mackenzie’s son with ex-husband Zachary Stevens.
The insider added how Edwards, 30, who went to rehab in May for heroin abuse, is not sober today. “She just sticks around for the paycheck,” the source explained. Edwards' baby mama Maci Bookout has also claimed on a recent episode that people have told her he is not sober.
They are welcoming their first child together. Radar previously reported that they are having a son and plan to name him Jagger. Her due date is October 16. Edwards is also father to son Bentley, 9, with Bookout.
Their marital troubles have been aired on Teen Mom OG. During an episode, he rushed them out of their sonogram appointment. When they returned home after fighting over directions, he said, “Mac your attitude.” She responded, “You’re a d**k!” He then fired, “I just don’t know if I can do this for nine months with you. I think we just need to separate for nine months.”
Ryan entered rehab for heroin in May after he was caught on camera falling asleep at the wheel and slurring his words while driving to their wedding. He was arrested on March 27, 2018 for petition to revoke, which means breaking probation from a March 17, 2017 simple possession of heroin arrest.
On March 23, Bookout and her husband Taylor McKinney filed restraining orders against him. Bookout claimed he threatened to take their son. McKinney alleged he, “threatened to show up at my house and put a bullet in my head.” Bentley and their children Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 1, were protected under the order. The petitions were temporarily granted until their court hearing on May 21.
Edwards has also been busted texting multiple women on the dating app Tinder. Radar has confirmed the number provided on the text messages is Ryan’s. Despite all the scandals, Mackenzie has defended her husband. The reality mom told Radar exclusively, "Ryan and I have never split and things are better than ever. And yes, he is sober."
