Maci on Bentleys Relationship With Ryan
Maci Bookout McKinney (@macideshanebookout) has shared a post.
Maci has struggled to maintain a strong co-parenting relationship with her ex Ryan over the years.
Maci gave an update on Bentley's relationship with his father in a September 2021 interview with Us Weekly, revealing that the couple does not see each other very often.
She said Ryan has only seen him a couple of times this year. To be quite honest, he does not go to any baseball games or anything like that. It's unsurprising that he does not see him that often.
Bentley's father-son bond is somewhat strained, but Maci did state that he wishes to have a relationship with his half-siblings, Jagger and Stella (Ryans' kids).
Bentley wants to see his siblings, according to Maci. He wants to have a connection with them, his grandparents, and all that. At this point, Ryan's relationship is still somewhat in the works.
Ryan Says He Misses Bentley
Mackenzie Edwards (@mackedwards95) has shared a post.
In an August 2021 interview with The Sun, Ryan revealed his friendship with Bentley.
The 34-year-old admitted that he hadn't seen his kid in more than a month.
Bentley has told the outlet that they haven't seen him for over a month. I haven't seen him, my mom and dad haven't seen him, and nobody has seen him.
Ryan suggested that Maci and her husband Taylor are the reasons why their family has not seen Bentley in the past and that he did attend therapy sessions with Bentley at some point.
After my dad and Taylor got an argument with Bentley, Maci has sort of put a halt on everything.
The argument Ryan is referring to took place during the Teen Mom OG reunion in 2021.
After the confrontation, Ryan said his family's connection with Bentley had changed.
Maci wants people to apologize to her; my mother would, but I told my wife, If you are not sorry, then don't say youre sorry. Dont blow smoke up their a** for no reason, he told the outlet.
Maci said, I dont talk with him at all. I'll miss Bentley for certain.
