Former Teen Mom Star Files For Divorce, Is Granted A Temporary Restraining Order Against Her Ex

You may remember Ryan Edwards from the first season of the reality show “16 & Pregnant.” On the show, Ryan and his girlfriend at the time, Maci Bookout, were expecting a baby together, a boy who they named Bentley.

Bentley is now 14 years old, and Ryan is no longer with Maci. In fact, he went on to marry a woman named Mackenzie, and the couple had two children together, a son named Jagger who is currently 4 years old, and a daughter named Stella who is currently 3 years old.

Their marriage has been anything but idyllic. In fact, the couple is getting divorced, and Mackenzie has a temporary restraining order against her ex.

On February 10, Ryan was arrested for harassing Mackenzie, for violating an order of protection, for possession of drug paraphernalia, and for possession of a controlled substance.

On February 27, Mackenzie filed for divorce from Ryan. The couple had been married for 6 years. Mackenzie has also been granted temporary custody of their children.

On February 28, Mackenzie was granted a restraining order against Ryan. The very next day, and just weeks after Ryan was released from jail, he was arrested again. This time, on March 1st, he was arrested for stalking Mackenzie.

It turns out that the stalking consisted of sending her texts that violated an order of protection she had against him. In the texts, he wrote, “My god I don’t haven’t to live my life without you! Sorry!” Another text allegedly reads, “For what it’s worth, I’m sorry and I do miss you.” Mackenzie did not respond to the texts.

According to police reports filed by Mackenzie, Ryan has been abusive and violent towards her numerous times. She shared that in January, during a fight, he “opened pocket knife, put to my back like he was going to kill me. This was in front of children. I tried to leave, he smashed my phone, took my car keys.” In addition, she claimed he held her by her neck and “threw menthol nicotine” in her eyes.
