Cheating can absolutely destroy a family, but in times of grief, it can be even more damaging.
As anyone who has been following Teen Mom OG knows, Mackenzie McKee recently lost her mother to brain cancer.
Unfortunately, her on-and-off husband Josh McKee apparently thought this was the perfect time to cheat on her… with her own cousin.
Now, Mackenzie is confirming that the relationship is over.
Even though Mackenzie McKee may be the newest addition to the Teen Mom OG cast, her storylines are often the most intense. Unfortunately, this season, most of her storylines involve her struggling to come to terms with her mother’s passing – but that’s not everything she has on her plate.
Mackenzie and her on and off husband Josh McKee have had struggles from the very beginning, but this one might take the cake.
Mackenzie opened up about the drama in a now-deleted Facebook post.
“I know many have it worse than me. this isn’t a pity party,” she started. “Life has really thrown me some huge curve balls. Idk how ive made it here.”
“Obviously the world knows josh had an affair last year, and then months later repurposed promising he changed and got “saved”. It really Made my mom happy and I chose to forgive, and trust God. she was so happy for him and her last words ot him were ‘im so proud of you, praay for me’ I was so happy we made it to God before her death.”
But unfortunately, Josh’s patience with Mackenzie’s grieving ran short. Two weeks after, she began feeling like Josh wanted her to heal faster than she could.
“All of the sudden I was a freak for crying and being depressed,” Mackenzie shared. “I would lay in bed and wonder why. I was so crazy because thats what he made me feel like.”
Josh grew more distant.
“Life slowly turned into him working al day, coming home to shower and fishing all night. Again, I wondered ‘what is wrong with me, I need him here to hold me together’ but just gave him grace and knew he didn’t know how to handle it.”
But things continued to spiral.
