We all know Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards’ strange behavior has been the center of the reality show for a while now, and though he completed a stint in rehab, his ex and baby mama Maci Bookout is allegedly unconvinced of her former beau’s sobriety.
Maci, 25, shares her eight-year-old son Bentley with Ryan, 29, and the father-of-one’s drug use has been causing tension for some time. And though Maci is happy that her ex is getting help, she still wants to take measures to ensure he’s staying clean.
“Maci wants Ryan to undergo random drug testing as she says she still doesn’t trust he is staying sober,” an insider told Hollywood Life. "Ryan’s refusing though, he says Maci has no grounds for claiming he’s relapsed, and he insists he hasn’t. He thinks she’s just doing it to create more drama and to make him look bad.”
The source confirmed that Ryan, who is now married to Mackenzie Standifer has been making his sobriety a main focus in his life.
“Ryan has been completely devoted to maintaining his sobriety since leaving rehab, and thinks it’s time Maci gave him some props for once instead of continually trying to bring him down,” the source said. “Maci however claims she’s just concerned about Bentley, and doesn’t want to run any risk of Ryan not being sober when he’s around him.”

“Ryan just feels like he can’t get a break though, he acknowledged he had a problem, and he got treatment, he feels that he should be given a fresh start and not continually judged on past behavior,” the source said.
We hope for Bentley’s sake that the reality star parents get on the same page!
