Ryan Edwards has released a statement about attending rehab.
In one shocking scene of the Teen Mom finale, Ryan is driving and appears to be under the influence.
Ryan is at the wheel driving to his wedding (Mackenzie reveals the wedding is only a “formality”, to seek rights over Bentley, and Ryan’s mother cried through the ceremony because Bentley was not invited).
Ryan appears to be driving under the influence of drugs and cannot keep his eyes open, all while escorting Mackenzie to the wedding. He nods off, slurs his words and Mackenzie reaches over and grabs the wheel of the car. She has enough, turns off the cameras in the car, and confronts Ryan.
“Why are you swerving?” she asks. He replies, slurring, “My eyes baby in the sunlight I can’t keep them open.”
Ryan rambles: “Hey you know what would be the coolest? Bachelor and bachelorette parties. I just thought about it, but I can’t rethink about it. We’re going to be married, we’re going to be married.”
“Did you take Xanax again?” Mackenzie asked. “You did.”
Ryan insists: “I don’t… I don’t have any. I put that on my kid’s life.”
Ryan entered rehab shortly after those scenes were filmed.
He has since left rehab and released a statement:
“A little over 30 days ago, I made the decision to check myself into a rehabilitation facility. I am back home now doing well, and life could not be better,” his statement read.
“Without the support of my wife and parents I would not have been able to do this. Thank you all for your well wishes.”
