Sometimes, people don’t act rationally under pressure. But that excuse only goes for so long – and Ryan Edwards’ parents, Larry and Jen, have made numerous choices about Ryan and their grandson Bentley Edwards that have left fans shocked.
As tensions between Ryan and Maci heat up, Bentley is breaking his silence.
Recently, Mackenzie Edwards hinted at abuse going on in her co-parenting relationships. She shared an image on her Instagram story, writing, “GASLIGHTING is a form of psychological manipulation and emotional abuse.”
The post went on, “The Gaslighter avoids responsibility for their toxic behavior by lying & denying & making you question facts, your memory & your feelings. Basically the Gaslighter makes you feel crazy & confused.”
It continued: “KNOW THIS NOW: You’re NOT crazy. You’re being manipulated AND this is TOXIC & NOT ACCEPTABLE.”
Mackenzie wrote, “If your co-parenting relationship looks like this- you too are being gas lit. You’re welcome.”
It’s pretty clear what Mack is likely saying in this post: that her co-parents Maci and Tyler McKinnery are gaslighting her and Ryan.
But needless to say, fans were not too quick to buy into it.
“LOL!! Maci has always *only* wanted ‘Rhine’ to be a responsible parent,” one fan wrote. “He’s never been a parent to Bentley, more like a strung out big brother. Mackenzie is narcissistic trash here lol her level of avoidance & blaming is at level hulk 1000%!! Tf she talking about. 😂”
But some sided with Mack!
“Maci is insufferable,” one fan wrote. “MacKenzie and Ryan have issues no doubt but Maci is so holier than thou and pretends to be perfect. Please ✋. Making your child starve to make weight when he hasn’t even hit puberty? Let the child chill. Adulthood will bring the panic attacks- let him enjoy himself while he can.”
But there’s one more party in this tangled web: Ryan’s parents, Larry and Jen. And Larry’s recent call regarding Bentley left fans more than a little uncomfortable.
