The saga of Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards’ drug abuse continues. Within hours of his wife Mackenzie Standifer announcing that she was pregnant with their first child, police arrested Edwards for breaking his probation related to his past drug charges. Is the 30-year-old really “fine” as Standifer claims?
According to In Touch Weekly, Standifer is claiming that everything is okay with her husband’s legal situation and their life at home, and the heroin possession charge was from April – before he went to rehab. She says that part of his case required police to book him, and Edwards took a drug test this week and passed.
But others close to Edwards are more than worried.
“There have been major concerns about Ryan’s sobriety,” an insider close to the reality star revealed. “At the upcoming reunion, his drug addiction is a major subject. Specifically, Ryan needed more inpatient treatment, longer than what he previously got.”
Edwards did do thirty days of inpatient treatment last summer after cameras caught him driving high with Standifer in the car on the way to their elopement.
In a bonus clip of the most recent Teen Mom OG episode, Edwards’ baby momma Maci Bookout blasted her ex over his drug abuse while talking with her castmate Tyler Baltierra. Cameras caught her confiding in Baltierra while the two left the rehab center where Baltierra’s wife, Catelynn Lowell, was getting treatment for suicidal thoughts.
Bookout – who shares 9-year-old son Bentley with Edwards – said that she and her ex don’t talk much anymore, and Baltierra responded by saying that it sucks because Edwards is the father of her child.
While Standifer continues to do damage control over her husband’s arrest, apparently Edwards’ drug use isn’t the only thing she has to worry about. After finding out his wife was pregnant, Edwards reportedly tried meeting women on Tinder. And, considering the fact that he allegedly sent naughty pics on the app just last year, the accusations seem to have some merit.
MTV revealed Standifer’s pregnancy via a preview clip for a new Teen Mom OG episode when she showed a positive pregnancy test to a producer.
Standifer and Ryan Edwards had been teasing a possible pregnancy for a while, and he recently told her that he was ready when she was, and now is as good of a time as any.
The 21-year-old is already the mom of 4-year-old Hudson, who she shares with her ex, Zachary Stephens.
New episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
