Mackenzie McKee recently announced her split with her husband Josh McKee in a social media post. She alleged he had cheated on her with her cousin just weeks after the death of her mother, Angie Douthit. Mackenzie and Josh had been having marital problems for a long time. The pair tried to work things out but this incident happened to be the last straw for Mackenzie. 

While everyone was convinced he had cheated on her with the cousin, Mackenzie recently broke her silence to shed light on what had actually happened. She revealed that there was no cheating involved but she also added that she wasn't happy to see Josh talking to her cousin till 3 am to get "advise" on how he could deal with Mackenzie. "I never used the word 'banging' or 'cheating' please stop stalking and digging for relatives and invading privacy. Josh was texting and calling her for advice on how to handle me and to me that was wrong on both ends and enough to walk away. Now let’s all move along," she wrote

Hearing this, many were quick to say he wasn't at fault as he was just trying to get information on how he could be of help. Meanwhile, others accused him of "emotional cheating". One fan was curious to know if Josh spoke to her cousin up until 3 am. To this Mackenzie replied, "I’m not sure the time of the phone calls but he was fishing until 3 am a lot lately. Who knows what time the calls happened. But like I said. I walked away so I don’t have to ever wonder."

Mackenzie also spoke up about why it was a big deal for her. She confessed that doing this behind her back had been the root cause of their breakup. Her new status was a cause of confusion for many and some people tried to clarify if Josh had ever cheated on her. She made it clear that the cheating had never taken place. "Tabloids used the word cheat and bang. Not me. But them texting was being hidden from me and the situation was not ok," she said. She replied to another comment by stating, "I was a bit dramatic on the number but it was a lot of text. In a time he should have been focusing on getting me help."

While some fans thought Josh and Mackenzie would get back together again but she made it clear that she was over it and better off alone.
