Instagram "Teen Mom OG" star Cheyenne Floyd slammed "idiot" fans who accused her of seeking attention from ex Cory Wharton.

Teen Mom OG star Cheyenne Floyd slammed fans who accused her of seeking attention from her ex, Cory Wharton, after daughter Ryder was hospitalized twice. At the time, he was away filming The Challenge, and couldn’t speak with his daughter except for rare phone calls.

Ryder suffers from VLCAD, or Very-long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, a metabolic condition where the body is not able to break down some fats. Ryder was diagnosed with the disease days after she was born.

Floyd Slams Fans For Saying She Was ‘Seeking Attention’

The day I found out I was pregnant I started to write Ryder letters. It was therapeutic for myself and I wanted her to be able to look to them for answers. At the time I would pour my heart out – I really put my thoughts & my emotions into these letters. I knew she would have so many questions and I pray the letters will help her understand my mindset, decisions, and strength. To this day I have continued to write Ryder letters ✍🏾 Here’s a peek of her Mother’s Day letter. —— Dear Ryder I’m watching you sleep, which is one of my favorite things to do. It never gets old. You look so peaceful, content, and I love when I move just a little and you wiggle right back up under me. Any moment you are going to wake up and tell me the sun is up.. then we will quietly wait to hear if Baaz is up, then the day begins. Today is Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020. It’s still so surreal that I am a mother. I watch you grow, laugh, run, dance, sing, twirl and I love every second of it. I thank God for every moment, for your health, your personality, and how extremely blessed we are. You are now at the age that we pray together and listening to you pray is so pure and loving. You have no idea how much I truly enjoy it. Your favorite thing to do right now is a pinky promise and we kiss our thumbs to seal the deal. Today all I want to do is smother you with my love. You gave my life true meaning, purpose, and so much joy. There is no way I could ever put down in words how much I love you. Loving you is a feeling that words will never be good enough to describe. I pinky promise I will advocate for you, protect you, love you, and be forever grateful that you picked me to be your mommy. ❤️

“For everyone who keeps saying Ryder was in the hospital because I was seeking attention from Cory… what’s wrong with you? I allow them to show when Ry is sick to bring awareness to her illness,” she tweeted on May 12. “Either then that shut the fuck up.”

The MTV reality TV star continued: “I swear some of you Teen Mom ‘fans’ are fucking idiots.” Floyd had the support of fellow Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie McKee, who wrote back, “What she said” with clapping hand emojis in between each word.

In response to a fan who said she lost her 17-year-old brother-in-law to VLCAD, added: “It’s a terrible condition and unfortunately people just don’t understand it.”

Wharton didn’t respond to Floyd’s tweet or fans accusing her of using their daughter for attention. The day before the episode aired, Wharton shared a preview and wrote: “Man, Ryder you’re so strong girl!”

On Tuesday’s episode, Ryder became sick while talking to Wharton. She wasn’t able to keep food down, which could be life-threatening for Ryder since her body already has difficulty breaking down certain fats to use as energy. “They’re going to start running tests and trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with her,” Floyd said. “We’re waiting for Ryder to start eating on her own and getting her IV bag put in so she can eat fluids.”

She wasn’t sure if she wanted to tell Wharton since he was competing on The Challenge. Floyd knew Wharton would be concerned if he found out about Ryder’s hospitalization and didn’t want to take his head out of the game, where $1 million is on the line.

Floyd Missed Having Wharton’s Support While He Was Away

By not telling him, Floyd felt alone. “Part of me wants to tell him, because he’s never going to understand because he’s missed these times, but I just don’t want to mess with his head,” she said. “But I could really use the help, just support.”

In a previous interview with Heavy, Floyd said she was being careful with Ryder because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I have to be more cautious. Her doctors reached out and said to be careful about having her around people or bringing her out. If she does come to the store with us, they said to make sure she wears a face mask and gloves,” Floyd said. “If she does go out, I give her a bath immediately when we get home. So we’ve been really careful with her.”

Don’t miss Teen Mom OG when it airs on MTV Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
