Teen Mom's Ryan Edwards Demands Custody Of Kids In Mackenzie Split -- You Won't Believe This!

Teen Mom’s Ryan Edwards Files For Divorce From Mackenzie After First Case Got Dismissed -- & He Wants 50/50 Custody!

Ryan Edwards is making big legal moves amid his split from Mackenzie.

As we’ve been following for over a year now, this breakup is among the messiest in Teen Mom history… First Mackenzie filed for divorce from her estranged husband in February of 2023, even getting a temporary restraining order against Ryan after some really scary behavior! Naturally she got custody of their two kids, Jager, 5, and Stella, 4. Ryan was later arrested for violating the protection order and stalking Mackenzie, and ultimately went to prison for drug and harassment charges. Not to mention nearly dying from a drug overdose…

Up until January of this year, it was clear things between them remained tumultuous — and they were obviously never, ever getting back together — but in February, the court dismissed their divorce case due to inactivity. That was definitely shocking as it’s clear they’re over for good. So just weeks later, Ryan has filed a new complaint for divorce! And you won’t believe what he’s asking for!

On Wednesday, The US Sun reported Ryan cited “irreconcilable differences” and is seeking split custody of his young children with Mackenzie. He’s even asking to be “designated the primary residential parent” and “that child support be assigned from [Mackenzie’s] income.”

Whoa?!?! Really?! After all his legal troubles over the last year, HE wants a shot at being the primary residential parent? He’s lucky to be alive and outside prison walls now, and he’s making these kinds of demands??

In the court docs obtained by the outlet, Ryan “affirmatively states that he has never been convicted of a felony,” but as we know, he did spend time in the big house, but was let out early. We mean, how many run-ins with the law related to violence and drugs add up to the same issues as one felony?

Mackenzie hasn’t responded yet, but the docs ask neither parent to move the children out of state or beyond 50 miles of their original shared home. The exes are also required to maintain communication about their kids, finances, and insurance until the divorce is finalized. They also can’t “dissipate or dispose of” property, nor “hide, destroy or spoil, in whole or in part, any evidence electronically stored or on computer hard drives or other memory storage devices.”

That’ll be a LOT of evidence to go through.
