Finally, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout is speaking out on her ex-boyfriend's most recent arrest, and honestly, we feel for her.
Maci dated Ryan Edwards when the MTV series premiered, and the two had a son together, Bentley, now nine. Fast forward all those years, and both parents are now married to other people, and do not get along. Whatsoever.

Ryan's most recent arrest occurred this past July, for violating his probation from a heroin possession charge, and saw the reality star facing over two years in jail. Although he's been released on bail, he still has consequences to face.
And now, Maci is weighing in on the whole situation. While a guest on Teen Mom 2's Kailyn Lowry's "Coffee Convos" podcast, which was released today, Maci shared, “I’ll be honest, I have no idea what state he’s in because he’s not allowed to be around any of us. He can’t just be in the same location as me and the family."
“So I have no idea. He’s not allowed to contact us or anything like that. But I mean, he did get arrested, I don’t know … I mean, I do know why, but I don’t want to say," she continued.
“I feel better that he is in jail because I know he’s safe there, if that makes sense,” Maci added. “I know he’s not driving around. He’s not doing something that could potentially hurt him or an innocent person. So it sucks, crappy situation for everyone.”
Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney filed for an order of protection against Ryan back in March, and in May, the pair, along with their two children, were granted two-year restraining orders against him. This came after Maci claimed Ryan was threatening both she and Taylor.
However, despite all the drama between Maci and Ryan, the former told Kailyn and co-host Lindsie Chrisley that she wishes him the best. We understand, considering they share a child together.
