Teen Mom Maci Bookout Slams Ryan Edwards' Parents And Mackenzie Standifer For 'Enabling' Him

Former Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards is now behind bars after police arrested him last week in Hamilton County, Tennessee, for theft of services, and there is one person who was not surprised, his baby mama Maci Bookout. Edwards allegedly dined and dashed at Bud’s Sports Bar in December, leaving behind an unpaid $36 bill. The bartender called the cops on Edwards and recognized him from mugshots, which led to his arrest.

According to the report from the Chattanooga Police Department, Edwards ordered six Jack Daniels whiskey drinks and left without paying.

When he was arrested for the theft, police also booked Edwards for a previous heroin possession charge which came from an outstanding warrant. He is currently being held without bond and will remain in county jail until his next court date on April 15th.

According to Radar Online , Edwards’ arrest for heroin and theft came as a shock to his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, and his parents.

“Maci’s not surprised,” revealed an insider. “She’s more relieved because at least he’s not out acting like a fool. This will give him more time to detox.”

Edwards just finished a 90-day stint in rehab for his heroin addiction, but he still has a lot of legal problems to deal with because of his March 2017 arrest for heroin possession and his March 2018 and July 2018 arrests for violating his probation.

During his latest rehab stay, which ended on Thanksgiving day, Edwards missed the birth of his son Jagger, his first child with Standifer. He is also the father of 10-year-old Bentley, who she shares with Bookout.

Edwards’ parents, Jen and Larry, are not taking this most recent arrest well because it means that their son will not be home for a while. An insider says that Jen and Larry have been known to enable their son, just like Standifer, and they often give into him and “don’t believe that he’s still the way he is.”

The source says that it is sad that things have turned out this way, but it seems that Edwards doesn’t really care.

    This really is no big surprise to see him like this, honestly he shouldn't have gotten off so easily the 1st time but most people who have "money" do that's just how it's always been if you have money or a high society reputation no matter what you've done they give you a slap on the wrist. Yes his wife and parents enable him like hell, while I don't condone their part in his continuous horrid behavior it's also very common with addicts to have their families at least 1 person enable them and for them to truly have to loose it all and hit rock bottom or go to prison for the behavior to really change and sadly even then it doesn't always happen. I hate it mostly for his children who have to suffer the commentary due to his poor behavior and that of the people who enable their father's behaviors, the children don't deserve the ridicule that's to come along more so in time. Ryan needs to get his shit together and stop blaming everyone but himself for his actions and choices. He may be stressed but these are his chosen actions. His oldest child's mother is not to blame for all of the last 10yrs since they broke up his actions. The relationship may have impacted him to a point but he can't keep using their past as an excuse for his choices and behavior, he can choose to man up and prove to the world he's a better man then portrayed and a better father but rite now he's a pos in his choices, when he gets out I hope he makes better choices of his life, go to college get a job hell invest his money in something like others have to better his future and that of his families to prove himself, I don't blame Macy for her choices of not wanting her son around him without supervision no one can trust his decisions rite now or the words that come out of his mouth given his track record. Please if your reading this ryan or his family take my advice to heart and help him to grow up, you as his parents should be able to enjoy being grandparents and not still having to parent your by age grown child but by choices not to put it bluntly. And Mackenzie you need a husband and partner not another child to raise.

    As a therapist for over 25 years I believe a good deal of her problems stem from a personality distortion known as borderline personality disorder. Meaning she will likely lack the insight to make any changes. Meanwhile her daughter buffers

    I couldn't agree more. Farrah is going down a dark path, and dragging Sophia with her. Her daughter is not enjoying her childhood regardless of Farrah "living my best life" claims. The kid had zero friends her own age, and it soo pathetic she's not in school learning to socialize in a normal, non-farrah way. Farrah needs to stop escorting, and stop trying to pretend she's wealthy. Get a effing real job! Needs to give Sophia a stable life. Also Michael needs to stop enabling his vile nasty daughter, and grow a pair. Farrah gave birth to Sophia, but she is not a mother. Grow up!

    Farrah is such a loser!! She’s just a prostitute (“using politically correct language’” but really...) if the definition is “selling herself” and I mean every way possible! Her poor daughter is being raised to be superficial, no morals or values, and she’s going to think she’s not worthy whoever things don’t happen the way “Mommy Dearest” has taught her to believe! It’s totally disgusting and I think it’s child abuse that Sophia will carry the baggage for her entire life!! Poor little girl doesn’t know what being a normal child is. It breaks my heart! Farrah, you need to know that it doesn’t matter what surgeries you get from now to eternity, IT WILL NOT LAST AND GRAVITY WILL TAKE YOU OVER!! It’s a fact and while you can, please stop the madness in how you’re teaching Sophia what a woman should be like!!! She will carry your scars forever!

      Laurie, very well said! It's amazing that she has any followers...actually I've never, ever read any posts that actually agree with her, besides her father the enabler, and the comments that Farrah posts pretending to be Sophia on twitter, or IG. What a clown. She's really an angry, lonely, sad mentally ill POS. Also, if we post anything she doesn't agree with, it means we're jealous of her. She lacks self-awareness, and logic. She's teaching her daughter to be disrespectful to others, and that tons of plastic surgery is most important in life; not kindness and compassion for others... Sorry about the grammar!
