The fight is just getting started!

Ryan Edwards returned home from rehab and right away the problems with his ex and baby mama, Maci Bookout, began. "So how are things with Bentley and Ryan," her friend, Keelie, asked her. "I mean I've been getting text messages and I already told him he should be expecting a letter from my attorney and he said 'what doing that exactly mean?'" She added, "So I texted him back, 'The letter will lay out the steps you need to follow for you to resume visitation.'' The mother-of-three explained that she needs Ryan to pass a drug screening, at her expense, prior to him taking Bentley for a visit. She told Keelie that Bentley has asked her about three times when he can go back to his grandparents. Ryan's parents, Jen and Larry, opened up about Ryan's rehab stay to their producer admitting that Jen and his son Bentley are triggers for his drug use. "It's been tough and Ryan is all we have, that is all we have. He's ours and we love Ryan," Larry said as Jen broke down in tears. Ryan admitted during a conversation with a lawyer about taking legal action that his drug of choice was heroin.
