Is Ryan Edwards back in rehab? That is what one redditor with "inside information" is claiming after the Teen Mom OG star reportedly failed his recent drug test. In the post, the source alleges that Ryan's visitation with his son Bentley has been denied and he has checked into a treatment facility.
"Turns out [Ryan] failed a court-ordered drug test for meth and various types of pills last Friday morning (March 2) thus getting his visitation with Bentley denied," the insider wrote. "He actually tried to use synthetic urine to pass the drug test but got caught when he dropped and busted the urine on the floor. Saturday morning he checked himself into FOCUS Recovery, which is a rehab that MTV is footing the bill for."
They go on to claim that his wife Mackenzie Standifer is trying to keep his latest legal troubles quiet — telling people he is enrolled in truck driving classes — and that she has also lost custody of her son Hudson to her ex-husband, who is currently fighting to make it permanent. "It's really sad to see that [Mackenzie] as basically chosen her husband over her child," the source added. "So, the only positive things that may have came from this is sweet Hudson is finally safe with his daddy where he obviously needs to be… and maybe [Ryan] can get the help he so very much needs."
However, Mackenzie is breaking her silence and denying all the allegations. "It's not true at all. He's right here next to me," she told Radar Online. "It's disgusting to say something that has absolutely no merit. If Ryan failed a court-ordered drug test he would be in jail." She also confirmed that he was at the TMOG reunion filming on March 3, not rehab. There have also been no new filings in Mackenzie's custody case with her ex-husband, according to the online publication.
Last year, Ryan was captured on camera driving under the influence of Xanax and falling asleep at the wheel on his wedding day on the MTV reality series. He checked into 30-day rehab program shortly after the scary incident and has been seemingly sober ever since. Let's hope these latest accusations aren't true.
