Maci Bookout does not have a relationship with former Ryan Edwards or Edwards' wife, Mackenzie Standifer, even after Bookout and Standifer posed together for a photo shoot while Edwards was in jail earlier this year.
In the photo, the two mothers posed with all their children: their son Bentley, 10, who Bookout shares with Edwards, his daughter Jayde, 3 years old, and his son Maverick, 2, who shares with her husband Taylor McKinney , the son of Standifer, Hudson, 4 years old. of a previous relationship, and Jagger, 3 months, which Standifer shares with Edwards.
But not all photos are worth a thousand words, as Bookout said. We weekly that she and Standifer are not friends.
"We do not really have a relationship, it's not negative, it's not a bad relationship, it just does not exist," Teenager mom og said the star. Edwards, who was released from prison in April, had not had contact with Bookout since his release. He spent three months in jail on charges of possession and theft of heroin.
"I have not seen it or anything. [He] has not had the opportunity to impact [me] Or it still has an impact, "the 27-year-old said, and his admission is not a surprise: Bookout, McKinney and their two children received a two-year restraining order against Edwards in May 2018.
However, Bentley is aware of what is happening with his father.
"Even if people do not talk about us, for example, we are on television at home, children always tell the truth," he said. "People are talking about that at home, so I definitely do not want him to go to school and have a child say:" Oh, that's what he told me, "or" my mom showed me ". ; I saw this & # 39; "
"I think that only from the point of view that he can process, understand and understand, and cope with it in a healthy way, I think he needs to know what is happening," he continued. "So that he can also, like his father, reinforce that he has love around him and support around him. And that is life; things happen but it's going to be fine. "
Edwards was released from the Hamilton County jail in Tennessee in April after his arrest in January for theft of less than $ 1,000 after leaving his $ 36 Chattanooga account. At the time of his arrest, he was also registered for a charge of possession of heroin derived from a pending court order. He was arrested in March 2017 for possession of heroin and went into rehabilitation after the arrest. In 2018, he violated his probation and was arrested for the second time in four months, returning to treatment again.
