Ryan Edwards has been ordered by a Tennessee court to stay at least 100 feet away from his ex Maci Bookout, her husband Taylor McKinney and their two children.
Last month The Ashley broke the news that the Teen Mom OG couple had asked the court for a restraining order against Ryan and on Tuesday E! News reported that the restraining orders had been granted for Maci, Taylor and their kids Jayde and Maverick.
The order requested to keep Ryan away from Bentley, the son he shares with Maci, was reportedly dismissed.
E! News reported that both Maci and Ryan were present in the Hamilton County courtroom on May 21 for the hearing.
A Hamilton County Circuit Court Public Information Officer told the site, “The judge dismissed the ex parte order of protection and then entered a mutual restraining order.” (The “ex parte order” is the temporary order Maci & Co. were given last month against Ryan, by the way.)
Maci and Taylor asked for the protective orders for their family due to Ryan allegedly making repeated threats against them. The couple claimed in court docs that, in the past, Ryan has shown up to Bentley’s sporting events under the influence of drugs and has threatened Maci. In his protective order request, Taylor claimed that, in March of this year, Ryan threatened to put a bullet in his head.
“I fear for my son’s safety because of these threats and proof that he drives while under the influence,” Maci wrote in court documents. “His behavior and actions are getting worse, I am fearful for my three children and myself, and what he may do, based on his threats.”
Ryan’s attorney Jonathan Turner told E! News that, while Ryan has agreed to stay away from Maci, Taylor and their two kids, he will be able to see Bentley.
“Ryan has no exclusions with Bentley and is still able to see his son under the new restraining order,” the attorney said. “This gives Ryan a lot more protection against any false allegations, allows him to avoid getting arrested without a hearing first, and allows him to be around his son most importantly.”
Ryan, who has been battling a heroin addiction for several years, didn’t try to fight the restraining orders.
“Ryan agreed to this outcome to make it easier on everyone and not go through a formal process of a trial,” his attorney said. “Moving forward Ryan hopes everyone can get through this without any issues and that he can see his son.”
Ryan, whose wife Mackenzie Edwards is pregnant with his second child, has kept a low profile lately, only appearing on social media once in the last few months to celebrate his purchase of a brand-new truck.
