"Mackenzie is being an absolute pain in my a--. She don't know why she left, it's been everything under the sun," Ryan told Maci. "It's because of my addiction, because I was outside in my garage."
In response, Maci suggested Ryan "keep focusing on you and all these crazy children and stay away from her." She also added that she would update their son, Bentley, 14, about the current situation.
Maci then explained her stance on the relationship between her ex and his soon-to-be former wife.
"It's not shocking to me. I know when we filmed the reunion and had that conversation about starting fresh with co-parenting, she's not gonna let this happen," she noted of the dynamics between the families. "And then she lost her mind anytime him and Bentley were gonna go do something because she couldn't go, because it was supposed to be the two of them."

Maci confessed that when she told her son about the drama, he was "kind of shocked" but wasn't "bothered by it or upset." The reality TV star mentioned how she was not surprised by his reaction "because he's never really been a big fan of Mackenzie's."
The day after the call, Mackenzie filed a protection petition against Ryan, claiming he held a knife to her along with other domestic violence allegations.
Ryan quickly disputed the alleged claims, saying, "She said I f------ held a knife to her back or something like that … f--- no, that's so dumb."
"Everyone knows when I get angry, I get f------ angry. So she's gonna use that against me. But I ain't never put my hands on a woman ever before," he expressed to TV producers.
