What was supposed to be a fun vacation to Puerto Rico quickly turned into trip full of emotions, as Maci admitted to Catelynn and Amber that Ryan is using drugs and if he doesn’t go to rehab, she’s afraid he’s going to die. To get more details on the May 29 episode of ‘Teen Mom OG,’ click below!
While in Puerto Rico for Catelynn‘s 25th birthday, Maci told her and Amber that her ex, Ryan, is using drugs. She also said that she lies awake every night, worried that he’ll die if he doesn’t seek help from a rehab facility. “I don’t think Ryan and I would have ended up together no matter what. Even if we didn’t get pregnant,” Maci told the girls on the May 29 episode of Teen Mom OG. And when Catelynn asked how Ryan was doing, Maci said, “He’s okay.”
“Ryan’s f***ed up,” Amber said. “I watch it, I see it, I know it.” Maci first hinted at Ryan’s substance abuse problem during last week’s episode, but she didn’t exactly say confirm it. However, after watching this week’s episode, there’s no more doubt. “Where he’s at right now, when I see him, I know where he’s at and I’m like, ‘Wow, he needs some guidance,'” Amber added.
Maci admitted that Ryan would seek help if those around him would admit he has a problem. Apparently, everyone except Maci is in denial. “What I’m saying is that everyone else around him is too afraid of what it will look like more than his health,” Maci said. “It’s all denial. They all know.”
“Honestly, the hardest thing is for me to see Ryan not love himself because he is a person worth loving. He deserves to love himself,” Maci explained. Then, she broke down in tears and admitted that she worried Ryan may die. “I’m just sick of cleaning up his mess,” she said. “I get tired of dealing with the ***. Just being the only one that f***ing sees everything and cares,” she added as she wiped away her tears. “I talk to Taylor about it like, ‘I wonder if today’s going to be the day that Ryan does something that he can’t come back from?’”
Later, during a chat with Taylor, Maci said she’s finally going to talk to Ryan about his problem. “I’m just going to be like, ‘You have to go to rehab,’” she said. “Right now is legitimately about saving his life. Most nights I’m crying in our bed talking to you about whether or not today is the day that he’s going to die or when I’m going to do something about it or how I should do something about it. And you’ve always just been there for me. Thank you for being there for me and for not making me feel like that’s not what I should be doing. I appreciate it.” Click here to see more pics from Teen Mom OG!
