Ryan Edwards, who fathered 2-year-old Bentley with Teen Mom star Maci Bookout, met cute blonde Shanley Urbanski online about a year ago and began flirting suggestively with her. OK! has the exclusive scoop on what happened next — all in this week’s new issue, on sale everywhere now!
“Ryan sent me texts and nude photos of himself,” Shanley told OK! exclusively, revealing three explicit pictures she says she received from him. In the first one, the Teen Mom star stands shirtless in denim shorts, showing his eagle tattoo on the left side of his chest while photographing himself in a mirror. In the next, Ryan is still shirtless, but his yellow-and-black-plaid boxer shorts are revealed. The third photo is a nude close-up.
“If it was another guy, I would have thought it’s gross,” Shanley told OK!. “But since it was him, I was happy. I told my friend, ‘It’s Ryan from Teen Mom!’ ”
Via Skype, Ryan asked Shanley to touch herself sexually, and he bragged to her about sleeping with “hundreds” of girls since Teen Mom first aired.
“He seems like he gets with different girls each week,” the pretty 20-year-old from Raleigh, N.C., told OK!. “He has asked me to do things I’m not comfortable with.”
When Maci, who has longed for Ryan since taking a break from fiancé Kyle King, heard about Ryan’s reckless sexual behavior, she was horrified.
“She said Ryan was toxic,” her friend says. “She thinks this just proves that he’s void of any intelligence or emotion. It’s embarrassing and he’s not setting a good example for his son. Maci is humiliated.”
The friend believes that Ryan’s latest antics might have pushed Maci too far. “Maci wants to be seen as strong, independent and classy,” says the pal. “Ryan always talks about getting with girls, but he’s all talk because he’s got nothing else going on in his life. She doesn’t want Ryan to drag her and her son down, too.”
