Did Ryan Edwards From ‘Teen Mom’ Ever Cheat on Mackenzie Standifer?
We remember when the young women from Teen Mom OG first appeared on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. Viewers watched them deal with school, friendships, family life, and their relationships all while preparing for motherhood. And it wasn’t just the teen girls who gained fame from the show. Ryan Edwards appeared as a young teen himself when his girlfriend, Maci Bookout (who has since become a fan favorite on Teen Mom OG), was set to have their first child, Bentley.
We’ve watched Ryan and Maci co-parent, break up, and get angry with each other as Bentley grew up. Now, Ryan is married to Mackenzie Standifer — but many fans wonder if he’s ever cheated on his wife. Here’s what’s been reported.
Maci has said Mackenzie is a great influence on Ryan
Maci has always seemingly had her life together, but the same cannot be said for Ryan. Fans of Teen Mom watched him miss obligations with his son, dodge calls from Maci, and live in his parent’s house with no way of making money for months at a time. But Heavy notes once Mackenzie stepped into the picture, Ryan’s life was making a turn for the better. Maci has even described Mackenzie as an excellent influence on Ryan, as she also has a child and is doing the best she can to be a good mom to her son and a good step-mom to Bentley.
Mackenzie and Ryan tied the knot at the end of 2017. In regards to the marriage, Mackenzie told E! News, “Everything is just kind of at a resting place right now. It’s about our boys. This is a day about us, yes, but it’s also about us becoming a family.”
The two have had a rocky relationship due to Ryan’s drug use
While Mackenzie was being the best wife she could be to Ryan, they’ve hit a multitude of rough patches along the way. E! News reminds us Ryan was headed for rehab right after his wedding, but that wasn’t the end of his troubles. In July 2018, he broke probation over a heroin possession charge. And just a month later in August, he was arrested after he was pulled over for speeding. The officer allegedly saw he had violated his probation for not completing community service and he was then promptly taken in by the law, E! News reports.
Mackenzie was pregnant at the time, though she mentioned he had her full support no matter what. Now that they have their child together, however, it seems Mackenzie is taking a firmer stance than before. Sources close to the couple say if Ryan does have a drug relapse again, she won’t hesitate to file for divorce.
Ryan was allegedly caught on Tinder and may have been contacting his ex, Shelby
Perhaps it’s not just the drug use that has caught Mackenzie off guard. In Touch Weekly reports after Ryan’s arrest and during Mackenzie’s pregnancy, reports broke that Ryan was on Tinder. Three separate women allegedly came forward with proof that Ryan was pursuing other women and trying to meet up with them while married. And one of the women on the dating app even said Mackenzie had approached her. This reportedly was not the first time Ryan was caught using Tinder since being involved with Mackenzie, either.
The drama doesn’t end there. In June 2018, In Touch Weekly reported that Ryan’s ex-girlfriend, Shelby, posted a cryptic message on Twitter that many fans thought was directed toward Ryan. The tweet, which was posted on May 30, said, “Still texting, calling and FaceTiming me. Better get your man girlfriend!” And the previous month, Shelby also tweeted, “Sometimes I just wanna be like ‘hey sis, your husband is still hitting me up.’ Buuuuut then I remember how delusional you are so i don’t waste my time.”
It seems Ryan and Mackenzie have worked it out so far, so we’re assuming some serious discussions were had amongst the couple. Even so, the fate of their relationship appears uncertain.
