Maci Bookout is reportedly devastated by the latest arrest of her former boyfriend, Ryan Edwards, who was taken into custody in Tennessee earlier this week after allegedly walking out on a bar tab last month. As fans may have heard, Edwards has two pending charges against him, including a theft charge and a drug possession charge.

Bookout and Edwards share a nine-year-old son together, Bentley Edwards, and according to a Hollywood Life report, Bookout is upset for their child.“Sadly, Maci isn’t shocked by [Ryan Edwards]’s recent arrest.

She’s heartbroken over all of this as her main concern is Bentley," an insider explained of Bookout's feelings. According to the report, Bookout is struggling with the way in which she is supposed to explain the bad behavior of her ex-boyfriend to their son as he ages.

Maci Bookout had hope for Ryan's future recovery

"[Maci Bookout] was hopeful that Ryan could get better," the source continued, "but the fact that he is unable to change some of his ways is her worst nightmare as a mother.” The report explained that prior to Edwards' drug struggles, she never believed she would be put in a position where she would have to deal with these sort of issues.

Understandably, she believes her son deserves much better out of his father. Although Ryan Edwards did attend a three-month rehabilitation program at the end of last year, his recovery efforts appear to be in vain at this point in time and soon, he will be back in court to address his latest charges.

Maci Bookout spoke of Ryan's drug struggles on 'Teen Mom OG' last year

During a November 2018 episode of "Teen Mom OG," Bookout opened up to one of her friends about Ryan Edwards' ongoing issues and the way in which they could potentially come in between him and his son Bentley.

“Part of me just wants to let Ryan know that if he f***s it up this time he’s not going to have another chance when it comes to Bentley,” she told a friend.

As "Teen Mom OG" fans well know, Ryan Edwards did not appear on the latest season of the show but his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, who gave birth to his second son, Jagger, in October, did make a brief appearance alongside his mother, Jen Edwards, at the end of last year.

Maci Bookout and her co-stars, including Bristol Palin, Cheyenne Floyd, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood, are set to return to MTV for a new season of "Teen Mom OG" sometime later this year.

Edwards and Standifer have not yet been confirmed for the new episodes.
