Nearly two months after the world witnessed Teen Mom OG star Ryan Edwards driving under the influence, a source opened up to Hollywood Life and revealed that the 29-year-old is reportedly doing well — but his ex, Maci Bookout, 25, isn't so convinced. "Ryan is doing great since leaving rehab. He seems to have finally put his demons behind him and he’s really committed to his sobriety. But Maci refuses to believe that his recovery is genuine and real," a source close to Ryan said. "It’s like she’s obsessed with him relapsing. She watches him like a hawk and is always on his back about being sober."
The source continued, "Ryan is really frustrated. He gets it, he messed up, but he faced his issues and went and got treatment for them, and he believes that he now deserves support and the benefit of the doubt. Both Ryan and Mackenzie [Standifer, 20, — his wife] think that Maci is trying to cause drama; they’re really over it and wish she would just move on."
Following that infamous car scene on Teen Mom OG, MTV made a statement that said, "MTV does not condone driving under the influence. Ryan's erratic behavior was due to actions that he took without anyone's prior knowledge." Ryan also responded to the footage at the time and said, "A little over 30 days ago, I made the decision to check myself into a rehabilitation facility. I am back home now doing well, and life could not be better." He added, "Without the support of my wife and parents, I would not have been able to do this. Thank you all for your well wishes." A thank you to Maci is noticeably absent from his statement, yet now it seems clear as to why. Luckily, the troubled star appears happier and healthier than ever, and we couldn't be more excited for him!
Teen Mom 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on MTV.
