'Teen Mom' Star Ryan Edwards' Parents Are Trying To Break Up Maci Bookout & Kyle King!

Fri, August 19, 2011 8:30am EST by 53 Comments

Ryan’s mom Jen will do anything to make sure Maci never takes Bentley away from her son, even if it means destroying her relationship with Kyle!

Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is fed up with her baby daddy Ryan Edwards parents. Aside from putting ideas in his head to start a custody battle, Jen and Larry Edwards are trying to get involved in Maci’s love life by using Bentley‘s well-being as an excuse! What should she do? 

On a recent episode of Teen Mom, Jen learned that Maci, 20, and her serious boyfriend Kyle King were living together and ran and ratted the news out to Ryan. “You can prevent her from living with boyfriends. There’s not any judge around there that’s going to go for that,” she told Ryan. “It’s not a good arrangement for Bentley. There doesn’t need to be a bunch of guys coming in and out of his life.”

When Maci and Kyle watched the episode, they were OUTRAGED. “It aggravates the hell out of me,” Maci tells Us Weekly. “Ryan’s parents aren’t doing this for Bentley’s benefit.”

“Kyle is the only person I have dated since Ryan, and to date Ryan has had five girlfriends and they have all met Bentley,” Maci adds. “I don’t think it bothered Ryan. I think it bothered his parents. Ryan’s parents tell him what to do.”

Maci is sick of the Edwards treating Kyle like some random guy, when he plays a huge role in Bentley’s life — he’s pretty much a second dad!

“Kyle gets very frustrated that he has no say in anything, yet he takes on more responsibility than Ryan does,” Maci says of Kyle, who recently quit his job in Nashville to move to Chattanooga, Tenn. to be with her and Bentley. “He is like, ‘I’m basically Bentley’s other dad. I provide for you guys, I am here for you guys, but I can’t do anything.”

Maci feels that Ryan’s parents are being “selfish” and simply pushing him to go to court just so they can get more time with Bentley. But Maci’s done being nice.

“The only way Ryan could ever get a single right is if he got it from a judge,” Maci admits. “I can decide if Ryan gets to see him or not. I get to decide everything. I’m sure it scares him.”

What do you think Teen Mom fans? Are Ryan’s parents getting too involved with Maci and Kyle’s relationship?

Yeah Ryan wasn’t there for Maci when he should have been but, you do have to give him some credit because he did change and he is there now. Bentley’s not going to remember that his dad was a jackass when he was just a few months old. Ryan has stepped up and he’s trying to be better. He’s trying to get guidance from his parents but they just have too much control over him. Instead of telling him what to do they should let him be his own man.

Maci is wrong. Ryan is bently’s father and she should not gloat about being able to decide whether ryan gets to see his son at all. Ryan does not want Maci. He wants more time with bently. All she is to him is the mother of his child. She needs to get over him. In last episode when she dropped bently off, he had to tell her she had to go while she had kyle waiting. You can tell by the way she is around ryan that she has feelings for him. If she hadn’t been so selfish about his birthday and Ryan’s scheduled time with him on halloween, ryan would not have been forced to take it to court to make custody legally binding. Maci also is lazy and is now blaming being a mom for not wanting to go to school to make a better future for herself and Bently. Later in life she will blame Bently when all she can find is minimum wage jobs. She has a family that will take care of bently while she goes to school. If Farrah finished school by leaving sophia with her grandparents and childcare just to make a better life for her and sophia, why can’t maci do the same.

How is here there for Bentley? His mom and dad seem to be picking him up a lot and taking care of him as well. Ryan likes to do the fun stuff now that Bentley is walking and talking but not the work.

I still want to know what kind of idiot puts their 2 year old in a jeep with no top and drives down the highway.

Ryan’s dad even said it when he was pushing Kyle to go to court…”this is killing your mother”.

I’m not really sure what tennessee laws are but I do agree that ryan should get joint custody. I was a teen mom also and I have joint custody with my son’s father and he can’t tell me who I can live with or date. On the other hand from what the show shows me maci has bentley sun night-thurs moring. I’m sorry but that’s just wrong. Ryan and his family have him more. So tell me why exactly she can’t finish school. Maybe because she is too obsessed with having a boyfriend? Regardless of his past behavior as a dad his whole family supports and loves bentley. I don’t see that she is as focused as she should be on her son and if ryan getting joint custody or more time with bentley would give her more time to work or go to school I don’t see the problem. As for his parents they are “his” parents if it were the other way around I’m sure everyone would think it was ok.

I’m pretty sure that Maci needs to pull past episodes into this situation it’s a mess! Any lawyer or judge that knew about Ryan being a party animal missing absent father while Maci sat at home doing EVERYTHING wouldnt give him an ounce of Bentley so I’m hoping she pulls out the big guns for this one

Yes I think Ryan’s Parents are getting to involved. Bentley belongs to Maci and Ryan so the decisions are for them to make and them alone on what needs to be done. I know how Maci feels because I went through the same thing. Jen didn’t make Bentley with her son Ryan so she has no rights or say when it comes to Bentley. All I can say is that Ryan should of stepped up and been a man and took care of his responsibility instead of thinking about himself and going out all the time and not taking/being there for his son when he was born then maybe things would of been different. Jen didn’t complain about all the gf’s Ryan has had or around Bentley. Jen needs to leave Maci alone because she has only been with 1 person (which is such a sweetheart) Kyle. I give Maci props. As for Kyle, keep doing what you have been doing by being there for Maci and Bentley and not worry about the Edwards. They are only trying to bring you down and keep you and Maci from being happy with each other.

YES!!!! They need to leave it alone.. Ryan and Maci have worked out an agreement. She takes care of the child most of the time so just because she wanted to have him for 3 hours on halloween doesnt mean she was breaking any agreement.. she should be aloud to spend that time with him.. christmas and birthdays are long enough that they can split the day.. Halloween is only a couple hours she has every right to have him as much as she wants.. Ryans parents need to leave it alone and do whats best for the baby not them. Kyle is his dad too!

No judge is going to prevent her from living with her boyfriend unless there is a legitimate reason like abuse. His parents are just being selfish.

I am so amazed on how Ryan’s parents are acting. Are they forgetting about how Ryan was when Bentley was a baby?!? Yes RYAN was the one out partying ALL night and Maci was home with Bentley. Ryan still lives at home with Mommy and Daddy while Maci is out on her own. They need to stop getting in her business. I am sure Ryan didn’t tell his lawyer that when Bentley was a baby he was pretty much a absent father!

i dont agree ryan is a good dad compared to most. And in the begining i agree he worked alot and then when he got back he didnt really spend any time with maci or the baby but now he wants to see him. I dont think what ryans parents are doing is right what so ever they should understand that once you have a baby you have your own family to worry about and are grow up enough to make your own desitions. But i also dont think its not right for maci to keep bently away from his dad you can tell she is still hurt. I dont know why she is so mad at ryan but when she said “I can decide if Ryan gets to see him or not. I get to decide everything” thats was not okay the point of the meeting they went to was to say that they are both grown up enough you can both deside things on your own. sit and work things out, maci you shouldnt get to deside every thing because if you keep ryan from bently the only people you are hurting is bently and your self.

Maci needs to continue to pursue her education so she can make a better life for herself and her son. Her son should be first and foremost in her life. Boyfriends do not take precedence over your children. Bentley needs a stable household. But on the other hand Ryan simply does not want her to have anybody. And he is involved with quite a few women. Maci needs to stand up and let him know that she does not want her son around any and everybody. He is probably trying to find a way to keep from paying child support by starting a custody battle.

There must be something wrong with our society when most young girls think that it’s ok to keep a father away from a child. No wonder our society is so messed up today. Too many kids are thinking about themselves instead of what’s best for the child.

Although I agree there are many women (young and old) that bitterly keep their children away from their fathers out of spite, I don’t believe this is the case with Maci. While she can be selfish with Bentley sometimes (as any loving mom is guilty of) the reality is that co-parenting is difficult AT ANY AGE. What’s best for children is to have both their parents in their life, but hard to be equitable and fair when splitting time between two parents. Maci and Ryan seemed to have worked out a good plan together without letting things get ugly but Ryan let his parents instigate a fight because of Maci and Kyle relationship, NOT because of fear for Bentley’s well-being. It’s a shame they are putting their grandson through more hardship by encouraging a bitter custody battle then encouraging them to work it out amicably.

This just crosses the line. They should leave her love life out of it. Kyle is more of a father to Bently (THE CUTEST ON THE SHOW!!!)than Ryan ever was!!!!!!! I hope it all works out well for Maci and Kyle and that Maci and Ryan can someday be civil.

Is there something wrong with Ryan? That young man is continuously yawning! It gives the indication that he is SO BORED WIIH HIS SON!!! He has done this since the show began on them! As for the parents of Ryan, what a turn of attitudes! when Ryan was together with Maci, they were all over Ryan because of his lack of interest in Maci and Bentley! His father told him repeatedly to get more involved with the baby’s care! Now suddenly he is the “wonderful providing father” and Maci,who has been on top of everything is the bad guy! One can see that KYle loves Bentley and Bentley loves him! That is the only stable male example he has! Leave them alone and let the little boy grow up happy! His mom deserves to be able to b e happy and with someone who loves her and her son! Backoff Edward’s family – be glad you have any rights at all to even see Bentley! Keep it up and that can change!

maci moved back to her hometown cause she didn’t want to drive two hr back and forth for school. she had no time to study or be with kyle or her son . so she moved back with kyle in tow .he is not working and she is dropping some classes cause its to much for her. she did the same thing with ryan . she drop school becuase it was to much. i don’t buy what she is saying. she is using her son as the reason she can’t get her work done. i have seen so many girl who has babies and they go to school and take care of their baby. her son is walking . why can’t she let ryan or her mom watch her son so she can finish school. why does she need to lie away from her parents .kyle can get his own place and she can stay over here and there adn still be able to work and do school. i am sure if she went back to school full time her mom and dad would help her .

I’m a teen mom and yes there are some people who can go to school and take care of there kids easily and then there are other people like me and Maci who don’t want to rely on other people to take care of our child because their OURS and maybe you can’t understand because your not a teen mom yourself but we don’t put ourselves in a category. and you don’t even kow the situation with her parents, so to say something like that is ignorant and you shouldn’t talk about people or situations you don’t know everything about.

P.S. Maci you rock your an amazing mother and I respect your decision to have your boyfriend move in with you, it’s hard to do what we teen mothers do but when I see a girl like you doing the best they can with what they have it makes me smile, and don’t worry about Ryan there a bark and no bite lol!

Yea any grandparent wants to see their grandchild but its that doesn’t mean they have any say in who Maci dates. Ryan’s a dead beat dad if he really cared that much about seeing Bentley or Kyle living with them then he wouldn’t need his parents to push him to court he would grow the balls to do it himself!!! And Maci isn’t getting paid that’s why Kyle moved in with her. Ryan has been with more girls than Maci has been with guys and as you can see he doesn’t even love HIS SON enough to not care what Maci does to have a good time with him on his birthday, but instead him and his family sit on the sideline and mope like people are excluding them, there excluding themselves. I’ve seen guys like Ryan a hundred times over if he truly loved his son and wanted whats best for him he would stop acting like an ass and at least try to act civil to the MOTHER of his child!!!

‘I’m basically Bentley’s other dad. I provide for you guys, I am here for you guys, but I can’t do anything.”

How exactly does Kyle provide for them when he quit his job to live off Maci? She better hope the Teen Mom money doesn’t ever run out because she and Kyle are too lazy and stupid to get other jobs. At least Ryan works!

Who said he quit his job to “LIVE OFF” Maci? He quit his job to move to where Maci is from and where Ryan lives which is probably more convenient for her. No one said anything about not working. And Ryan may have a job but its not a steady one and he is not as good of a dad as Kyle is (AND ITS NOT EVEN KYLES KID)! Maybe youre just upset because in actuality you are the low life and jealous you missed your shot.

If you watch the last episode, it says that Kyle still had not found a job yet. All he does is loaf around Maci’s apt. looking like an albino bulldog faced gremlin. She should def. not have kids with this weirdo. They will totally resent Bentley b/c he is cute and they will look like their albino dad and ginger mom.

You do realize that the episodes are taped months in advance right? And wow! Who are you to judge what their kids will look like? I am sure there are plenty of people in this world who dont find you attractive. That doesnt mean that there isnt someone out there who will think differently and love you for who you are. Grow up!

@@@Mike I was going to post the same comment. Ryan needs his own place to care for Bently and stop depending on his parents. If a judge can mandate a mother to have her own place for her children then it should be the same for fathers. If that was the case I bet you Ryan would not fight for custody because he never want to be a father from the begining. So for him to get his own place would be out of the question. I just feel sorry for Maci she is trying her best to be a good mom to her son and to have these people undermining her is a shame. They should have taught their son to be a better man and father.

I hope Maci and Kyle stay strong and don’t let Ryan’s parents ruin their relationship. It seems fairly obvious that Ryan doesn’t really care what Maci does, or even if he gets to see Bentley. His parents are pushing him to do these things when it’s really none of their business. Kyle isn’t just “like” a 2nd father to Bentley, he IS a 2nd father to Bentley. I actually see him playing with Bentley. I don’t remember the last time we saw Ryan playing with Bentley.

True the parents are controlling—-She should go to court but demand that Ryan get custody without living or help from his parents—He should have his own place and fully take on his sons life–right now he does nothing–its his parents who take care of Bentley—Be a Man dude–Man-up to your duties full-time as a parent and not a spoiled little baby–Ryan–

I feel bad for Maci, Bentley and Kyle. When I saw the eposide on Aug 16, Ryan did not even hug his own son when he walked in the house and HE DESERVES NOTHING to be sharing the joint custody. Kyle did everything responsibility and even trained Bentley go potty. Ryan’s parents needs to grown up and back off. They even did not respect Bentley. Freaking controlling parents to Ryan. I hope Maci and Kyle do something and win the war against the bastard Ryans

Before you guys post your articles, please learn to edit. You have written here “Maci feels that Kyle’s parents are being “selfish” and simply pushing Ryan to go to court just so they can get more time with Bentley. But Maci’s done being nice.” I believe you meant to say “Maci feels that RYAN’S parents”, not Kyle’s. I love you guys, but I catch so many grammar, spelling and name errors on your page, and it just does not seem very professional.
