Ryan Edwards is sorry he’s not sorry– basically.
The Teen Mom dad, who has spent the majority of the last couple of years either getting himself into trouble or facing the consequences of his actions–- albeit, lightly–- took to social media over the weekend to let his followers know that he isn’t sorry for his behavior, nor does he plan on changing it.
Ryan revealed this take through his Instagram Story, where he shared a quote from another Instagram user.
“I am no longer apologizing for being me,” the quote read, according to The Sun. “Yes, I’m confrontational. Yes, I’m bluntly honest. Yes, if you disrespect me, I will politely disrespect you.
“I am so sick and tired of molding my personality for the sake of other people’s feelings when they have a disregard for my own,” the statement continued.
Ryan confirming his IDGAF attitude comes less than a month after the father of three was released early from jail, despite Judge Gary Starnes previously ruling that Ryan was to spend the holiday season in the slammer (at least through January 17) after repetitively getting into trouble and not completing court-ordered treatments.
Two weeks ago, Ryan returned to the courthouse for yet another hearing, during which his probation on time served was revoked and his suspended sentence was reinstated.
The judge also ordered Ryan to follow strict court conditions going forward, which include attending counseling sessions, undergoing random hair follicle tests and receiving monthly Vivitrol shots– the latter of which Ryan has previously failed to keep up with at times since he began receiving the injections in July. (Vivitrol is a prescription injectable medicine designed to help curb alcohol and/or opioid dependence.)
While he didn’t clarify in his Instagram Story if his unapologetic mindset applies exclusively to obeying the law, Ryan has seemingly been keeping this same energy when it comes to parenting.
Earlier this month, Ryan’s estranged wife Mackenzie Edwards told The Ashley that she and Ryan are not on speaking terms at the moment, allegedly due to Ryan’s relationship with girlfriend/partner in (literal) crime Amanda Connor, whom Ryan met while they were both in rehab.
Amanda went on to respond to Mackenzie’s comments
in a truly unhinged manner, claiming that she isn’t comfortable with her boo speaking to his ex because Mackenzie “wants more than coparenting” from Ryan.
Amanda also accused Mackenzie of being a “shady a** bitch” (among other things) in her poorly worded and nearly punctuation-free rant.
Ryan’s next court hearing is set for April 23.
