Maci Bookout is seriously questioning his sobriety and drug use despite time already spent in rehab. Things have never been rainbows and butterflies for the couple, they have had trials from day one of trying to co parent their son, Bentley. Things took an ugly turn when Ryan began fighting his addiction to opiates, including heroin... this is so sad!
Ryan and his wife Mackenzie Edwards wlecomed their baby girl into the world on October 18th, posting the following on instagram
"Welcome to the world sweet Stella!" Mack captioned the heartwarming Instagram album above (which features the newborn front and center). "Stella Rhea Edwards came on her own time and surprised us New Years Day! What a way to start our year! We are so in love with her already."
Following the birth of their daughter Stella, Ryan checked into rehab once again to try and get on top of his addiction and what fans and even Maci believe to be a relapse. Maci has been very out in the open about him
A tweet on reddit read
“Scabs all over his head and chin. All jittery. Ryan is not sober. And his family is ignoring it and MTV is paying him to be a trainwreck,”
Last month at son Bentleys birthday party Bookout was not impressed to see her ex looking far from healthy.
“I’ve seen him look better,” the 28-year-old expressed to her friend Katie on an episode of Teen Mom OG. “It’s the first time I’ve seen him since he got out of jail. That, in my opinion, he was 100 percent not sober.”
Maci said in a voiceover for a preview of the upcoming episode of Teen Mom OG.
“Bentley’s birthday party was a couple weeks ago and I’m still concerned about Ryan’s sobriety,”
“But I only allow Bentley to see him when he’s with his parents Jen and Larry, so I know he’s safe.”
Taylor and Maci discuss their concerns in the clip.
“In my opinion, he was 100% not sober,” Maci said.
“I wouldn’t call you crazy if you thought that,” Taylor agreed. “Part of that’s just because it’s happened so many times. It’s not a knock on him. You have to think that way because it’s your son.”
Maci is expriencing feelings of frustration due to the disappointment in Ryan's parents lack of coomunication, she feels they dont take this situation serious enough and it seems as though Ryans family are turning a blind eye to their son's problems!
“They don’t update me or talk to me about it,” Maci told In Touch
She did admit however that it isn't entirely Jen and Larry's fault by adding;
“At the same time … I don’t ask them about it either,"
"[It’s] not that I don’t care about his sobriety or don’t want him to be healthy, but … I have my own family, my own life that I have to keep [my] top priority. And it’s a tightrope to walk on.”
