Ryan Edwards arrested days after announcing he is leaving 'Teen Mom OG'
Teen Mom OG star, Ryan Edwards has been arrested for the second time this year and it happens to be right after announcing he won't be retunring to the show.
Ryan Edwards has been arrested again. As stated by Ashley Reality Roundup, the Teen Mom OG star was booked on Monday (July 23) for “previous charges or other reasons". As per the Inmate Information System obtained by the website, it stated that Ryan’s charge was listed as “possession of controlled substance.” There was no bond set. Following this incident, Ryan has a court hearing for August 6. This is not the first time that the reality star is going to prison. In March, Ryan was arrested at his Tennessee home for violating his probation related to a previous heroin possession.
This development comes after Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie Standifer confirmed to E! that they won't be returning to the show. “We’re not returning to Teen Mom this season. The network told us they don’t want to show Ryan as a recovering addict,” Mackenzie told the website claiming that MTV “did want to enter a contract with our unborn baby and have the baby film with Ryan’s parents so it would look like someone else is raising it.”
Mackenzie added that she wasn't too pleased with how the show did not talk about one of the most important aspects of their life at the moment. “They want to talk about us but they don’t want to pay us and film us,” she said. Meanwhile, Ryan alleged that even though he is sober now, his ex Maci Bookout and other cast members told MTV “she’s not going to film unless I enter rehab again and quit the show.”
Ryan also slammed MTV as he took to Instagram to share with his fans a message about addiction. "I will never stop speaking out against this horrible disease! It consumes your life and turns you into someone even you don’t know," he wrote. "I’m asking you to never give up. Each day is a struggle. I’ve made mistakes and I have really messed up in the past but there is so much hope ahead and it doesn’t mean I can’t change the future."
Ryan shed light on the way Mackenzie could be portrayed in the upcoming season as he wrote, “Don’t take everything you see on MTV as factual truth. They don’t want to show me or Mack in a happy light or that I am active in my recovery. I AM." He alleged that MTV was not interested in showing that he is recovering and this was the real reason they decided to walk out of the show.
“They want me to look angry, passive-aggressive and uncaring regarding things that mean the most to me. I’m done taking their s— and letting the world believe this by standing up for myself. You’re believing a lie. And soon… very, very soon, you WILL see the TRUTH behind the LIAR," he concluded his post.
