Maci Bookout & Ryan Edwards’ Rocky Relationship: A Decade of Drama on Teen Mom

Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards’ relationship has been difficult from the beginning and things have only gotten worse over time. They were the first couple featured on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, but tensions grew after the birth of their son Bentley and their brief engagement ended. The relationship became strained, particularly due to Edwards’ drug abuse, and Bookout’s husband had to obtain a restraining order against him in 2018.

Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards’ tumultuous relationship, which began during their appearance on “16 and Pregnant,” has only worsened over time due to coparenting issues, drug abuse, and legal troubles, culminating in Ryan’s recent arrest for violating an order of protection and other charges.

Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards’ relationship has been a difficult one to watch for fans of Teen Mom. The couple was the first to be featured on 16 and Pregnant in 2009, and their rocky relationship only grew worse through the years. They welcomed their son Bentley in October 2008, when Bookout was still in high school, but tensions between them continued to rise. The couple had a brief engagement in 2009 before calling it quits for good. Bookout went on to date Kyle King from 2010 to 2012, while Edwards was in a relationship with Dalis Paige at the same time.

Bookout became frustrated with Edwards as she felt like she was co-parenting more with his own parents than with him. After Bookout wed husband Taylor McKinney in 2016, and Edwards tied the knot with wife Mackenzie Edwards the following year, their relationship only worsened. The mechanic’s perceived absence with Bentley, his multiple run-ins with the law, and drug abuse further strained their relationship. In 2018, Bookout was granted a restraining order against Edwards after he allegedly threatened her and McKinney. Edwards had been previously arrested twice, once for heroin possession, and the second time for violating his probation stemming from the drug charge.

Three years later, in March 2021, McKinney and Larry Edwards, Ryan’s father, had a heated discussion about Ryan’s relationship with Bentley on-camera, leading to almost coming to blows. That same month, the Edwards family, including Ryan’s mom Jen and Mackenzie, were fired from the show. In December 2022, Bookout shared with Us Weekly that she was working with a life coach on Teen Mom: Family Reunion to let go of some of her “anger” towards Edwards. However, things continued to spiral for Edwards in the following months.

In February 2023, Ryan slammed Mackenzie in a series of social media posts, claiming that she cheated on him, and was subsequently arrested for violating her order of protection against him and booked on multiple charges, including harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance. Bookout did not comment on the drama but shared a post on her Instagram Story about the trauma of “narcissistic abuse.” Despite their long history and the challenges they faced, it appears that Bookout and Edwards’ relationship is unlikely to improve anytime soon.
