Teen Mom:OG‘s Ryan Edwards has checked into rehab, multiple sources have confirmed to E! News.
The news comes days after disturbing substance abuse allegations were made on this week’s episode of the MTV reality show. The sources also tell E! News that Ryan has been in rehab for two weeks and that he’s “doing well.”
On the episode, Ryan’s ex Maci Bookout broke down about her ex’s issues with substances while on a trip to Puerto Rico to celebrate co-star Catelynn Lowell‘s 25th birthday, alongside her husband Tyler Baltierra, Amber Portwood and her fiancé Matt Baier.
Maci made it clear to the other reality stars that she feared for her ex, who is her son’s father, that he may one day do irreparable damage to himself.
When Catelynn asked how Ryan was doing, Amber interjected, “Ryan’s f–ked up. I watch it, I see it, I know it. Where he’s at right now, when I see him, I know where he’s at and I’m like, ‘Wow, he needs some guidance.'”
Maci added that she’s “talked to [Ryan] about going to a treatment center” and that her ex “would do it.” However, she claims that “it’s everyone else around him that is too afraid to admit it.”
While she fought back tears, the reality star told her co-stars, “What I’m saying is that everyone else around him is too afraid of what it will look like more than his health…it’s all denial. They all know.”
Ryan and Maci welcomed their son Bentley eight years ago. Their struggles co-parenting have been widely documented throughout the course of Teen Mom.
Maci also added it’s hard watching her son’s father hurt himself.
“Honestly, the hardest thing is for me to see Ryan not love himself because he is a person worth loving. He deserves to love himself,” said Maci.
Ryan has not commented about the substance abuse issues.
