It looks like Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie Standifer's custody battle with her baby daddy is far from over. While she is stepmom to hubby Ryan Edwards’ son Bentley, she also has a son of her own named Hudson. And, according to a new report, Mack’s ex is attempting to get his son back.
According to Radar Online, a source close to Zach Stephens, Mackenzie’s ex, claims that he is looking to take his baby mama to court. “He wants to take Hudson from her,” the insider said. “She never has Hudson. It’s her mom, Ryan’s mom Jen, or Zach watching him. Zach doesn't feel [Hudson should be with her.]” Apparently, the four-year-old boy “screams” when he is told he has to leave his dad’s home. “He says he can’t stand being there.”
This custody battle has been going on for a long time. According to the website, they've been in court since June, and a judge most recently ruled in favor of Zach. “Defendant shall pay to Plaintiff the sum of $245 per month to be paid at the rate of $113.07 bi-weekly,” the ruling read, which reduced the amount of child support Zach was paying. Mack was granted custody when the couple divorced.
Mack has denied any allegations made against her by her ex, but she's used to dealing with rumors. She even wrote a blog post about the “half-truths” people see on TV. “Let’s start from here,” she said. “This is a very, very lonely life. It takes you to dark places and it forces you to find yourself and to define what you’re made of. It’s about showing the world the ‘story’ while knowingly opening yourself up to hatred and vile comments at your expense.”
Of course, tensions are high between Mackenzie and Ryan’s ex Maci Bookout. The two always feud, particularly about Ryan’s on-camera battle with drugs. “Whatever you do, it’s broadcasted,” Mackenzie said. “Whatever mistakes you make, they’re broadcasted. Your ups, downs, and in-betweens, broadcasted.” We wonder if the custody battle is going to make it on this season of OG…
