As reported, Maci Bookout, along with co-stars, Amber Portwood and Catelynn Baltierra vacationed in Puerto Rico on this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG. But the getaway took a somber turn, when Maci exposed a shocking and near fatal secret of ex, Ryan Edwards.
Maci confirmed a serious drug addiction as the cause of Ryan‘s suspicious behavior.
“He would do it,” Maci told her co-stars of rehab. “It’s everyone else around him that’s afraid to admit it. He’s got me. Everyone else around him is too afraid of what it will look like more than his health. It’s all denial. The hardest thing is to see Ryan not love himself. He’s a person who deserves to love himself.”
Last season, Ryan fueled drug rumors after being captured on film bug-eyed and slurring his words, which he staunchly denied. But when the episode aired, Mackenzie confirmed the obvious and seemingly directed some anger at Maci a day after she discussed Ryan‘s issue publicly, “Here’s a thought… maybe instead of making assumptions and tearing people down, you could spend that time praying for us instead,” she tweeted.
Nevertheless, Ryan‘s baby mama Maci, remains committed to helping the father of her 8-year-old son, Bentley, get the help he needs.
“I’m going to be like, you have to go to rehab,” Maci Bookout told her husband Taylor McKinney. “Right now it’s about saving his life. Most nights I’m crying in our bed talking to you about whether or not today is the day he’s going to die.”
Mackenzie is standing by her man amid his struggles — and looking forward to the couple’s upcoming nuptials on November 18, 2017 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
“Being married someday is going to be so dope,” she retweeted. “Like you get to come home to your best friend every single day and just do life together.”
