It’s not a totally unreasonable request. Teen Mom OG dad Ryan Edwards has apparently requested some alone time following his release from jail, and his wife, Mackenzie Edwards, is being understanding about it. Check out our gallery below to learn more about Ryan’s release and why he feels he needs some time to himself after a period in prison.
Radar Online reported on January 25 that Ryan was arrested for having heroin with him in Red Bank County. According to a clerk the outlet spoke with, a warrant was likely out for his arrest in Red Bank at the time.
Ryan broke probation from a past heroin possession charge in 2017. Before his arrest, Ryan reportedly downed six whiskey drinks without paying at Bud’s Sports Bar in Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
“Ryan told Mackenzie, ‘The first thing I want to do is … I need a little time to be by myself,’” an insider reportedly told Radar. We wonder how he handled that conversation without seriously hurting her feelings.
“She understands,” the source added of Mackenzie. “She told him, ‘I’ve been taking care of these kids. You need to help me with the kids when you’re done!’” That’s certainly an extremely forgiving outlook on the situation.
So what is Ryan doing with his newfound freedom? “He said he wants to sit in the woods for a whole day and not have to listen to anyone talk,” the source revealed. “He wants to get on his motorcycle and ride it.”
A different insider previously told Radar that Mackenzie is “more relaxed with Ryan away.” “She’s being more like her old self where she is more down to Earth and not in defense mode all the time,” the source claimed.
But what about when Ryan’s little break is over and he comes back? The source said of Mackenzie, “Hopefully she doesn’t go back to being overprotective and antisocial when he comes home.” Well, a little overprotectiveness in this situation probably can’t hurt.
We really wish Ryan all the best in the midst of this tough transition. Hopefully, he’ll be back with his family in no time and he can adjust well to being back in the “real world” after he served his time.
