As seen in last week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Maci Bookout told Ryan Edwards (over text) that he would not be able to visit Bentley until he had passed a drug test. Maci specifically wanted him to pass a urine and hair follicle drug screening.
Ryan spoke with his lawyer and his lawyer also reaffirmed that Ryan would definitely need to pass a drug test in order to have legal visitation rights with Bentley. Up until this time, it seems that neither Ryan nor Maci had specific visits ordered by the court.
In this week’s episode, Ryan admitted to MTV producers that recovery from his heroin addiction has been challenging. He also admitted to his wife Mackenzie Edwards, that he cannot take a drug test because the drugs wouldn’t yet be out of his system. He said that he has heard that heroin can take UP TO A YEAR to get out of your system. SIDE NOTE: If this is true, that is seriously insane.
Before the end of the episode, Ryan finally did speak to Maci (there seemed to be a lot of confusion about unanswered texts between them), however when he did speak to her he told Maci that keeping Bentley from him is not OK and will hurt him in the end. Maci did not respond to this, Ryan vowed to take Maci to court over Bentley’s custody.
The Teen Mom Twitter Feed is not buying Ryan’s excuses from this episode, and fans are definitely questioning his refusal to take a drug test for court. Fans also seem to not understand how Ryan has been addicted to heroin for months and only spend 27 days out of a 30 day rehab program… Can’t say I disagree with them! Catch Teen Mom OG on MTV on Monday Nights at 9/8c to see how this all plays out!
