“Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout received a two-year restraining order against her ex-boyfriend after he was arrested for heroin-related charges.
Bookout, 26, was granted the order against Ryan Edwards, 30, on Tuesday, according to E!. Her husband, Taylor McKinney, was also granted an order of protection.
“We did agree to a restraining order where Ryan will not go within 100 feet of Maci and her current husband and their two children,” Edwards’ attorney Jonathan Turner told the outlet. “Ryan has no exclusions with Bentley and is still able to see his son under the new restraining order. This gives Ryan a lot more protection against any false allegations, allows him to avoid getting arrested without a hearing first, and allows him to be around his son most importantly.”
“Ryan agreed to this outcome to make it easier on everyone and not go through a formal process of a trial,” he added. “Moving forward, Ryan hopes everyone can get through this without any issues and that he can see his son.”
Bookout claimed in court documents that Edwards “left voicemail messages threatening to show up at [her] house and take [her] son” and alleged he “has made threats to show up and hurt [her] if [she didn’t] answer [her] phone,” according to E!.
She also alleged that he showed up to their son’s baseball game “under the influence of [heroin]” and made threats against her.
“I fear for my son’s safety because of these threats and proof that he drives while under the influence,” she said in the documents. “His behavior and actions are getting worse, I am fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats.”
Bookout and Edwards share son Bentley, 9. Edwards is now married to Mackenzie Standifer, 21, and they are expecting their first child together. Bookout shares a son Maverick and daughter Jayde with McKinney.
He was arrested and charged with “petition to revoke (simple possession of heroin)” in March. He was previously caught driving to his 2017 wedding while under the influence, and he subsequently spent time in a Dallas-based rehab facility to kick his $10,000-a-week habit afterward.
Representatives from MTV did not immediately return a request for comment.
