Teen Mom star Ryan Edwards’ dad is ‘sorry’ grandson Bentley, 12, must deal with 'drama' in family feud with Maci Bookout
TEEN Mom OG star Ryan Edwards’ dad Larry is “sorry” his grandson Bentley, 12, has to deal with “drama” in their family feud with Maci Bookout.
Maci, 29, and her husband, Taylor McKinney, have been feuding with her baby daddy Ryan, 33, and his parents, Jen and Larry, over their son Bentley, 12.
Larry exclusively told The Sun of the family feud: “I’m sorry that Bentley didn’t get to enjoy both families without the drama.”
On Teen Mom OG, Bentley said he did not want to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their relationship.
The two have had a strained relationship ever since Ryan's jail and rehab stints for drug abuse.
Bentley made an exception for his half-brother Jagger's second birthday, but refused to go to the party at their home.
When Ryan, who is also dad to Jagger, 2, and Stella, 1, with Mackenzie, called Maci a “spiteful evil b**h,” as he accused her of keeping Bentley from them, Maci fired back over Twitter.
She wrote: ”I really wanted to post some 'petty b***h' (and hilarious) comments, but I'll wait until they can tell me the definition of 'petty' without googling it and reading it aloud.”
The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported Maci and Taylor fought with Ryan's parents on stage, as he and his wife Mackenzie refused to face off with the couple.
A source told the outlet: “You could cut the tension with a knife when they were all sitting out there.
“But everything was OK until the very end of the segment. Maci kept giving vague answers and was making it clear she was upset but would not say why.”
Taylor then “exploded” on Jen and Larry.
The insider said: “He told them Ryan is a ‘piece of s**t’ and that he, unlike Ryan, has been there for Bentley for a long time.
“He told Larry and Jen that Ryan should be more like he is. [Taylor] kind of got up and eventually asked Larry if he wanted to take things outside. It didn’t get that far, though. Nothing got physical.”
Maci, who is also mom to Jayde, 5, and Maverick, 4, then allegedly called Jen a "manipulative b***h" before they stormed off the stage.
The grandpa previously told The Sun: “Ryan is so calm, even at the reunion.
"We can’t win, just keep kicking the dog eventually he will bite you and when he does you want to put him down.”
Larry continued that his son, who has struggled with addiction, is "doing just fine.”
He added: "Do you think if anything had or would happen they wouldn’t have already exposed it?”
Larry told The Sun in October that the Teen Mom dad is “not allowed” to see Bentley, as the family “hasn’t gotten to see him very much.”
He previously said of Ryan and Maci: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed.
“Ryan wasn’t going to comply with everything she wants and needs and we’ve been shut down.
“Bentley right now, we can’t even see him, they’re not even allowed to see him. It is what it is.”
Larry has also insisted his son is sober, as fans speculated Ryan, who has struggled with heroin abuse in the past, may have relapsed after he appeared “high” on this week’s episode.
