As per the reports, Teen Mom star Mackenzie Edwards is asked to pay a monthly child support allowance to her ex-husband Zach. Mackenzie is presently married to Ryan Edwards and has a son Jagger and daughter Stella with him.
Meanwhile, Ryan shares their son Bentley, age 12, with his ex-fiance Maci Bookout. The couple was originally seen on MTV’s Young & Pregnant. Ongoing feuds are continuing between Edwards and their exes. Ryan was an outcast from the show due to fights with Maci in regards to their son Bentley.
Moreover, Ryan’s wife Mackenzie is also going through wars with her ex-husband Zach Stephens. The drums of rivalry are throbbing through the court. And now, Mackenzie has been ordered to pay child support to baby daddy Zach. Let us know the case in detail.
Teen Mom: Mackenzie Summoned To Pay Child Support Allowance
Mackenzie and Zach have been in continuous fights over their 7-year-old son Hudson. After the settled custody case in March, Mackenzie is asked to pay child support to baby daddy Zach.
The Sun reported that according to the Permanent Parenting Plan Order, Mackenzie is asked to pay a monthly sum of $260 to Zach. After calculation, it has been estimated that Zach’s monthly income is $3,805, whereas baby mama earns $8,750 a month. Zach had previously given a sum of $9,100 to Mackenzie. This included child support arrears, Hudson’s unpaid dental expenses, child tax credit, and attorney’s fees, according to the court papers obtained by The Sun.
Earlier this year, Zach claimed that Teen Mom OG was “bad” for Hudson while Mackenzie was still filming for the show and filed for 50/50 custody. According to their Permanent Parenting Plan Order, Mackenzie remains the primary residential parent. For 209 days out of the year, Mackenzie has custody of Hudson, while his dad Zach gets him the remaining 156 days of the year.
Furthermore, all the decisions regarding the child, such as his healthcare, education, and other things, shall be done jointly. This means that both the parents have equal right to show their disapproval over any decision taken in the future for the child. And no parent has the right to make a one-sided decision.
Ryan Edwards And His Family Fired From The Show
Ryan Edwards has been in hot-headed fights with Maci Bookout. He has been fired from Teen Mom OG along with his parents Larry and Jen. As Ryan was dealing with substance abuse, he could not be present for his son Bentley. But Larry and Jen maintained connections with their grandchild Bentley.
They initially got along well with Maci, but Season 9 turned the tables when Larry fought with Maci’s husband, Taylor. The reunion episode saw Maci and her husband Taylor argue with Jen and Larry. Larry implied that the child could be easily manipulated, suggesting that Maci put ideas into the 12-years-old’s head which caused strain between him and his father.
Taylor believed that it is neither Maci nor him who are putting anything in the head of Bentley. The child himself does not want to connect, and Ryan and his family forcing him to do so is very wrong. This led the show makers to fire the Edward family.
Although later, the family is seen in a few episodes of Teen Mom OG. This has put the audience in a dilemma if the family is back. Do you think the production house made the right decision by firing Ryan Edward? Let us know in the comment section.
