Ryan Mackenzie Edwards

MTV Fans had a robust reaction to Ryan Edwards' post, where he appeared to accuse his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, of cheating on him.

Fans were abuzz on social media after “Teen Mom” personality Ryan Edwards appeared to accuse his wife, Mackenzie Standifer, of cheating on him. Edwards seemingly made the accusation on January 29, under an Instagram photo of the couple posted in July 2022.

“Take wife down off this. I’m not proud of being married to someone that stays out in bars and goes home with other guys,” Edwards, 34, wrote in a since-deleted post, according to a screenshot on Reddit. “Tomorrow can’t get here fast enough! Don u know what happens when you lay with dogs? …wait look at who I’m talking to. And then blaming it on my addiction. Yea divorce is the right thing.”

According to a screengrab preserved by the fan account Teen Mom Chatter, Edwards also shared a post on Instagram that read, “I trusted you but now your words mean nothing to me, because your actions spoke the truth.” The line underneath it read, “Cheater & Cheating Quotes.”

The Tennessee native wrote in the caption, “Your regret is coming… the good lord showed me what I need but not what I wanted.”

Edwards and Standifer, 26, have been married since 2017 and have two children, 4-year-old Jagger and 3-year-old Stella. Standifer also has a child from a previous relationship, 8-year-old Hudson.

Fans Wonder if Being Fired From ‘Teen Mom’ Strained Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer’s Marriage

Fans on Reddit speculated Standifer might have become disillusioned with the relationship after she and Edwards were fired from “Teen Mom” in March 2021.

“Now that the MTV money is gone Mack wants to move on,” one person wrote.

In a March 2021 interview with “Without a Crystal Ball,” Standifer blamed Edward’s ex-girlfriend, “Teen Mom” star Maci Bookout, 31, for getting the couple fired from the show. Edwards and Bookout share a son, Bentley, 14.

“Maci’s agent …. went to Viacom and said that they wanted to focus on all of Maci’s abilities and whatever she does, and that we took up the time on the show that she could be using to show all that,” Standifer told the outlet.

In September 2022, Bookout said it was a “huge relief” not to be working with her ex anymore.

“I think being on TV and doing this show was not the main portion of why our relationship was always so toxic,” Bookout told Page Six. “But … there was no way to create room or space for us to heal or move on or get over some things because we’re constantly having to talk about each other when we don’t even talk to each other.”

Several months after being fired from “Teen Mom,” Edwards went on an expletive-filled rant on Instagram after fans criticized his looks in a photo posted by Standifer.

“Y’all idiots don’t know s*** but what is on TV,” Edwards wrote, as reported by The Sun. “You people are worthless cowards.”

Ryan Edwards Was Rumored to Have Cheated on Mackenzie Standifer Several Times

Some fans on Reddit suggested Edwards was being hypocritical by accusing Standifer of cheating.

“So Ryan can cheat and it’s cool but when Mackenzie does it, now he wants a divorce? Make it make sense…” one fan commented.

“Ryan didn’t you get arrested in the middle of the day for skipping a bar tab with a newborn at home?” another fan wrote.

In 2019, Radar reported Edwards had cheated on Standifer only days before it was made public that she was pregnant, and Edwards was arrested on heroin-related charges.

According to Radar, the woman who met with Edwards for the extramarital hookup told the outlet she asked the former reality star why he was on a dating site.

“I thought you were married,” the woman said she told Edwards.

“I am… I still like to have a little fun,” Edwards replied, the woman told Radar.

In 2018, Radar reported Edwards was accused of having a “one-night stand” with another woman he met on Tinder.

The woman told Radar that Edwards said he was “separated” from his wife.

Edwards and Standifer did not respond to Radar’s request for comment on the woman’s accusations, the outlet reported at the time.

Standifer Told The Sun She & Edwards Were in a Good Place

The last time Standifer talked about her relationship publicly, she said she and her husband were “happy.”

“Nobody is saying that we haven’t made mistakes, because we have,” Standifer told The Sun in September 2021. “But I’m not going to harp over them or live in sadness or shame over the past five years.”

Standifer told the publication the couple had “been through the best days of our lives on the show, but we’ve also been through some of the worst,” and said she was “proud” of “how far we’ve come with our family.”

Edwards told The Sun his relationship with Standifer was “great.”

“You can always turn your mess into a message,” Standifer told the outlet. “Sometimes you make the right decisions and sometimes you don’t. You learn from your mistakes and you move on and you try to be better and grow. You can’t change the past, you can only move forward.”

Edwards and Standifer did not immediately respond to Heavy’s request for comment about the cheating rumors.
