The real reason behind Ryan’s sudden desire for custody!

As we saw on the Sept. 7 episode of Teen Mom, Ryan Edwards is NOT about to let his ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout move to Nashville with their son Bentley so she can be closer to her new boyfriend, 22-year-old Kyle King. But is he doing it for the right reasons? Sources tell OK! magazine that Ryan, 21, is only fighting Maci for custody “to hurt her,” and Maci is “devastated.”

So who really deserves custody of Bentley?

If you’ll recall, Ryan hasn’t exactly been the model father — at least not based on what we’ve seen on the show. For one thing, Maci has already had to take Ryan to court to squeeze child support payments out of him. On top of that, Ryan introduced Bentley to his new girlfriend Kathryn (or the “sketchy parrot,” as I call her) without introducing her to Maci first.

Sources say Ryan is jealous of the fact that 22-month-old Bentley has reportedly called Kyle “da-da,” according to the mag. Meanwhile, it’s also speculated that Ryan is jealous of the attention Maci and Kyle get when they have Bentley with them. Less time with Bentley also means less screen time for Ryan.

I’d have to say my vote for custody (as if it counts) goes to Maci. While I don’t think it’s right for her to be taking Bentley far away from Ryan (he does have a right to help raise his son), Ryan also hasn’t exactly exhibited the best qualities in a stable dad. But I’ll let you guys decide:
