The reality TV dad is claiming that his ex, Maci Bookout McKinney, is keeping his 12-year-old son Bentley away from him.
The 33-year-old — who has a sordid history with drug abuse — alleged his estranged ex ended their father/son therapy sessions they were attending after the heated blowout between his dad, Larry, and Maci’s husband, Taylor McKinney, at last season’s reunion special.
While discussing the ongoing feud between the exes, Taylor and Larry became increasingly agitated and the two men even lunged at each other during the MTV special.
“I did go to therapy with Bentley, Maci has kind of put a halt on everything after my dad and Taylor had that argument,” Ryan added. After the explosive reunion, Ryan, his wife Mackenzie and both his parents were fired from Teen Mom OG.
Ryan explained that he doesn’t “speak at all with Maci” but he misses his son. When flat out asked if he believed the Bulletproof author “poisoned” their son against him, he declared yes. “A little bit, it feels like it,” he said, adding: "It hurts and it’s painful, for sure.”
The father-of-three explained he was prepared to fight his ex in court to see his son. “We’re going to do something, we’re waiting to see what happens,” he added.
Maci and Ryan's romance was first introduced to the world on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant in 2008. The former flames got engaged in 2009, but ultimately called it quits in 2010.
Maci is currently married to hubby Taylor and the duo share two children together: Jayde and Maverick. Meanwhile, Ryan is currently married to Mackenzie and they also share two children, Jagger and Stella. Mackenzie has a son, Hudson, from a previous relationship.
