Fans of “Teen Mom” ââhave discussed a new photo of Ryan Edwards after it was posted on the Teen Mom Tea fan page on December 9, 2021.
“Ryan out with his one true love,” the page wrote in the caption. Edwards, 33, was shown holding his dog, Chance, as he left a store. Before being fired from “Teen Mom OG”, the Tennessee native was often filmed holding his dog.
Some social media users on Instagram have pointed out that Chance could be a support animal for Edwards, who has battled heroin addiction.
âI’m not a fan of him; However, people with addictions can really benefit from an emotional support animal, âsaid one of the most popular comments.
Other people have said that Edwards cared more about Luck than his children. âHe loves this dog more than his own children,â they wrote.
Edwards has three children. He is the father of 13-year-old Bentley, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Maci Bookout, and he has two children with his wife, Mackenzie Standifer: a 3-year-old son Jagger and a 23-month-old boy. daughter, Stella.
While social media users on Instagram mostly talked about Edwards’ relationship with Chance, a different kind of discussion bubbled up on Reddit. There, fans said they noticed a change in Edwards’ appearance.
One interpretation of the apparent “weight gain” of the former “Teen Mom” ââwas that he maintained his sobriety. âI actually look at it from a different point of view,â one said. âYeah, he looks old, but I think the weight gain shows that he’s probably not on heroin. Fat sober will always look better than skinny drugged.
“Okay, I can appreciate the sobriety you can get with her weight gain,” agreed another person. “I’ll give him props for that, if he’s sober.” Heroin is a hell of a drug.
During an interview with The Sun in April 2021, Edwards claimed he quit using drugs.
The comments came after Bookout’s husband Taylor McKinney accused Edwards of relapsing during the “Teen Mom OG” reunion in April 2021. Over the season, it appeared Edwards was struggling to stay awake during his scenes.
âI can see why he made that comment, but in reality I was just exhausted 99% of the time,â Edwards told The Sun. “Stay awake all night, then help Mackenzie with the kids during the day.”
The former MTV star has said he will be building buggies at night and getting ready for a big race.
Edwards slammed social media users who criticized him
Although the father of three rarely comments on social media, Edwards broke his silence when he faced the backlash from fans.
Standifer shared a photo of Edwards holding their daughter Stella and smiling. âPretty rare that we have 1 in 1 time with each of our kidsâ¦ but when we do, it’s perfect,â she wrote.
Originally the comments section was open, but she deleted it once Edwards spoke out, claiming that trolls write negative things about her online but never say anything to her face-to-face in the real life.
âOver 10 years that I have never met a ***** mother to tell me a negative thing in my face,â he said in part of his statement. “You think that with everything that is going on in our country right now, you would be questioning the way you act because it’s people like you who are acting like whiners ** b ****** who put us in this pathetic state. “
Edwards blamed Bookout for being fired
When the Edwards were fired from âTeen Mom OGâ in March 2021, Standifer told Without a Crystal Ball that Bookout had spoken to producers about their withdrawal from the series.
âMaci’s agent went over their heads and went to Viacom and said they wanted to focus on all of Maci’s abilities and everything she does and that we took the time to do it. ‘show she could use to show it all, “Standifer said. WOACB.
MTV gave Standifer and Edwards the option of returning, but the Tennessee native was not interested.
“They said when [Maci] didn’t fulfill their obligations or basically didn’t have enough content for them to call us back, âStandifer told WOACB. “Ryan was just like, ‘Don’t do it. We’re going to move on. We’re going to live our lives. We’re going to do our job and, you know, have a normal life. Like, don’t waste your time or your breath coming back.
