"He called me on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 and threatened to show up at my house and put a bullet in my head," he claimed in the protection order filed on March 23. "The police were called and they suggested to seek an order of protection."

McKinney, who shares daughter Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 1, with Bookout, explained how Edwards has a "history of drug abuse."

"He has also said he would show up at our son's baseball game and confront us, my wife and I," he ended the allegations.

McKinney asked for Edwards, 30, to refrain from contacting him and to stay away from him.

The court issued a temporary order of protection.

Radar previously exposed Bookout's restraining order against Edwards, who she shares son Bentley, 9, with.

"He has left voicemail messages threatening to show up at my house and take my son," she claimed. "He has made threats to show up and hurt me if I don't answer my phone."

She claimed during her son's baseball game in May 2017, Edwards "showed up under the influence of heroin and got in my face, yelling and threatening to hurt me."

Bookout explained how she fears for her son's safety because she has proof that he drives while under the influence.

"His behavior and actions are getting worse," she alleged. "I am fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats."

She checked off that he not "hurt or threaten to hurt" any animals she owns.

As for temporary custody, she explained how he does not have any custodial rights to their son.

Bookout and McKinney's court hearings have been continued until May 21.

Edwards entered rehab for heroin abuse in May after he was caught on camera driving high to his wedding to wife Mackenzie, who is expecting their first child together.

In episodes of Teen Mom OG, Bookout explained how Edwards would threaten her over text because she refused to allow him to see their son until he passed a drug test.

The Ashley's Reality Roundup was the first to report on the order of protection request.
