‘Teen Mom’ star Mackenzie McKee slams ‘horrible’ husband Josh McKee after split, says she deserves better
Reality star Mackenzie McKee announced her split from husband of six years on Twitter and called him a horrible person
Reality star Mackenzie McKee took to her Twitter account to announce her split from her husband of six years- Josh McKee on Friday, August 16.
She tweeted, “I would like to say, that due to stress, me needing to stay focused, the media, etc. I am deciding my marriage needs a break,” she wrote.
“My heart breaks for my kids. But as of right now, this is what’s best. Thank you.”
Following her announcement, she gave an interview to Us Weekly on Saturday, where she revealed further details about what went down before the couple decided to call quits.
"Turns out, Josh is not a good man whatsoever," Mackenzie said.
"Watching the show and catching him in lies, seeing how independent he is, I realize I deserve better. I have fought for this marriage for many years, and lately, I've really opened my eyes to what a horrible person he is," she added.
Mackenzie was referring to the currently airing MTV reality show ‘Teen Mom OG’.
The recently aired episode on August 4, showed Mackenzie confronting Josh, amid cheating rumors while he assured her that he’s never been unfaithful to her.
She later discovered that he’s gone to a bar while she was out of town.
“There was no affection or anything like that there,” he claimed. “I’m just here to tell you that I was at a bar, and I’d like you to trust me when I’m getting a few drinks at a bar. … I was just avoiding the fight, and I was wrong.”
Although Mackenzie didn't specify the reason behind the split she did appear to suggest some women had tried to move in on her man.
Right before tweeting about her split, she tweeted a cryptic tweet "To the girls (I know who you are) who called in. Nice try", possibly referring to the cheating allegations against Josh.
The couple had been dating since 2009 and tied the knot in August 2013.
They share three children- Gannon, 7, Jaxie, 5, and Broncs, 3. The couple entered the reality television world in 2011 when they first appeared on ’16 & Pregnant’.
Later the couple featured on ‘Teen Mom 3’ and are currently on ‘Teen Mom OG’.
While Mackenzie has been pretty vocal about their split, Josh is yet to comment about the situation.
