Earlier this week, we reported that Ryan Edwards had been arrested in Tennessee in connection with a probation violation for an April heroin possession arrest.
While Edwards' struggles with addiction have been well-documented, fans were not previously aware that he had been arrested for possession or that he was on probation.
And it seems this all came as a surprise to Ryan's baby mama, Maci Bookout, as well.
Now, Maci is taking action to ensure that Ryan won't be allowed anywhere near her family…
1. Hard Times For Ryan
Ryan was arrested earlier this week in connection with a previous charge that fans weren’t aware of. It was widely assumed that he’d suffered a relapse, but his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, says that that’s not the case, and she insists Edwards was simply taken into custody to be re-booked.
2. More Bad News
But Mackenzie probably won’t be defending Ryan for much longer. Just days after news of his arrest went public, several media outlets reported that Edwards had been caught using the dating app Tinder to seek out potential cheating partners.
3. Grinding It Out
Mackenzie is reportedly planning to remain married to Ryan … for now. But we imagine he’ll have to make some major changes if he’s hoping to keep his pregnant wife by his side.
4. Maci’s Surprise
All of this has reportedly come as a huge shock to Ryan’s first baby mama, Maci Bookout. Bookout reportedly thought she knew all about Ryan’s checkered past and was blown away by the indiscretions he’d managed to keep buried.
5. Change of Plans
Maci and Ryan have been locked in a custody battle over their 9-year-old son Bentley for several months. Maci had previously allowed Ryan to have supervised visits with Bentley, but now it seems those days are done.
6. Not Messing Around
In fact, Maci has taken legal action to ensure that Ryan won’t be allowed anywhere near her or her family for the foreseeable future.
