‘Teen Mom OG’ Dad Josh McKee Breaks His Silence About Alleged Affair With Wife Mackenzie Douthit’s Cousin: “This Is Not A One-Sided Ball Game”

“I reckon I should mumble a few words about this mess… “

Less than two weeks after he was called out by his wife for allegedly having an affair with her cousin, Teen Mom OG dad Josh McKee, husband of Mackenzie McKee Douthit, is finally breaking his silence on the matter.

As The Ashley previously told you, Mackenzie claimed on Facebook that she had discovered her husband of seven years had once again cheated on her, this time with one of her close cousins. In the now-deleted Facebook post, Mackenzie vowed to leave Josh and her toxic marriage behind, writing, “Today is the day I walk away.”

Josh had remained silent on the entire topic…until finally heading to Facebook to defend himself last week.


Not long after she exposed the alleged affair on social media, Mackenzie publicly admitted it was petty to blast Josh and her cousin on Facebook. She also seemed to shut down rumors that anything physical had happened between the two, referring to the incident as an “emotional affair” and going on to reveal that her marriage wasn’t in good shape, even before she learned of the alleged affair.

This is how much that news surprised us.

While it appears that Mackenzie is focused on doing damage control, Josh seems to want everyone to just mind their own business.

“Better worry about your own sins, cause God ain’t gonna ask you about mine,” he shared on Instagram, along with the caption, “I’m just here for the comments.”

After receiving some criticism in the comment section of his post, Josh jumped in to let his followers know he’s used to the backlash that comes with being on ’Teen Mom OG,’ and told fans that they do not have all the facts.

“People, I’ve been through the ringer being on that damn show, this is nothing new to me,” he said. “I get it you all are pissed at the fact of what you read on the internet or seen on TV. ‘OK’? But if you are going to come at me with what little you all really know, know your damn facts! And know that this is not a one side ball game.”

Josh’s blunt response to his critics was met with some support, with one follower claiming “that show ruins marriages and everything else,” encouraging the father of three to keep his head up.

Another one of Josh’s supporters pointed out that MTV always “has to have a bad guy,” comparing his role to that of Maci Bookout’s ex Ryan Edwards or Chelsea Houska’s ex Adam Lind.

“Sounds like a pretty dang solid group of dudes, if ya ask me!”

“Just sit back and soon someone else will be on the hot seat … ,” they added.

It is unclear if Josh and Mackenzie are back together currently. On May 27, she posted a photo of the three kids she shares with Josh to Facebook, tagging him in the photo. (Josh liked the photo.) However, Mackenzie is still using her maiden name on social media.

On May 26— just a day before the lake photo was posted— Mackenzie made it seem like she was done with Josh for good.

“Next season will be my glow up,” she tweeted. “No one is weighing me down or holding me back ever again. I love my children’s father, I’m happy for his future, but man I’m excited for mine. Time to shine ….

  1. Even if this one was an “emotional affair”, he cheated on her plenty of times before. Didn’t they basically admit they stayed together when they had their third kid because at that time already, they thought a new child will fix everything?! Honestly Mack is dumb but I also feel a bit bad for her being stuck with this mumble jumble for years thinking he will somehow love her back again. Nope, maybe she even wasted time when she could have found an honest man who doesn’t go looking for woman “pals”. Anyway, she should just focus on her kids, I bet when the divorce is finally sealed, he won’t even care to see the kids more than maybe once a month…and I do think he will have children with another chick sooner than she with another man, I give him a year, one of his affairs will have an “oopsie baby”.

    She is back to McKee on Instagram now

  3. Wow, I didn’t know Josh knew any words.

  4. It would be nice to see her in a healthy, loving relationship. Josh was the worst! Made Corey Tyler look like Romeo.

  5. Mackenzie already admitted her part in this. She yelled at him and called him names because he cheated on her, even after he re-proposed to her.

    Ofcourse she should have let it go when he wanted her to. Just say sorry and it doesn’t matter that everyone knows you cheated on your wife with some bar chick.
    Poor brainwashed Mackenzie, to write a post that it was her fault too. It would have been a bad sign when she wouldn’t have cared!

    So she was salty to him. Still no reason to go crying on another woman’s shoulder and have an emotional affair, instead of talking to your wife to save your marriage.

    She has been trying to make him a good husband and father for way too long.
    When you have to drag your husband out of his lady friend’s/ drug dealer’s house while you are trying to be a God fearing fitness guru, it might be a sign the two of you are not meant to be together.

  6. I actually like her story line the best this season. The other girls are so boring and played out. The only time I would NOT fast forward through Amber’s screen time would be if she and her foreign friend were on 90 Days. I can’t get a good read for her MacKenzie and Josh. I feel like she was suspicious of something going on with him and then the calls and texts made her jump to the conclusion of an affair ( which sounds likely). She had been hurt so many times by his poor judgment and in that moment was strong enough to say enough was enough. Weeks go by and the weakness set in and we hear the back walking begin. I would love to see her focus on herself in the next season. Show her get a makeover, new house, and a new set of cowboys to test out.
