‘Teen Mom’ alum Ryan Edwards’ wife files for divorce, gets restraining order

Ryan Edwards and his wife, Mackenzie, have officially called it quits amid their ongoing legal issues.

According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, Mackenzie filed for divorce on Monday after six years of marriage.

The 27-year-old — who previously had an order of protection against the “Teen Mom” alum — was also granted a restraining order and given temporary custody of their son Jagger, 4, and daughter Stella, 3.

The update comes just days after Tennessee police issued two warrants for Ryan’s arrest: one for “stalking” his wife and another for violating her protective order.

Their divorce comes after Ryan was arrested for harassing Mackenzie after he posted X-rated images of her online and suggested that she cheated on him earlier this month.

The 27-year-old was also granted temporary custody of their children.

“If you guys have never seen a spineless slut this is one,” he wrote in the since-deleted Instagram post. “They take your money sleep with anything that looks at them. But they must have a wife to [sic]. God what a joke. It’s sad really.”

Mackenzie then went to the police and detailed a series of recent alleged domestic violence incidents that occurred between the two.

The mother of two was also granted a restraining order against Ryan after previously having a protection order.

“Arguing, Ryan punched holes in the walls and doors. [He] held me up by my neck to the wall. Threw me down in hallway and said if he could not have me no one could,” Mackenzie told law enforcement about an alleged fight from early January. 

“Opened pocket knife, put to my back like he was going to kill me. This was in front of children. I tried to leave, he smashed my phone, took my car keys,” she continued.

The mother of two also claimed Ryan, 35, threw menthol nicotine in her eyes and threatened to punch her in the face in a separate incident.

Ryan — who also shares 14-year-old son Bentley with “16 & Pregnant” star Maci Bookout — has been in and out of trouble with the law for years.

In March 2018, the former reality TV star was arrested for violating his probation on a heroin-related charge, leading Bookout, 31, to also get a restraining order against him.

That same year he was arrested for possession of heroin and ended up spending a few months in prison.
