At the end of Tuesday night’s new episode of Teen Mom OG, the network played a clip of what fans can expect to see later this season, and an intense meeting between Larry and his wife and Maci and her husband played.
In the promo, multiple scenes involving the families were shown, including Maci asking her and Ryan’s son Bentley, 12, if he was “nervous,” and he said he was because he hadn’t “talked to him in forever.”
The tween seemed to be referring to his estranged dad Ryan, who he then is seen hanging out with in the next clip, where the Teen Mom dad told him: “I feel like you’re being lied to, buddy.”
In the past, Ryan has said that he thinks Maci is putting thoughts and ideas into Bentley’s head, including the idea to go to therapy to work on their father-son relationship.
The final scene of the promo shows the reunion between Ryan’s parents and Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney, in which the women sat back as their husbands duked it out.
Sitting on couches across from one another, they yelled back and forth, with Taylor sitting forward and angrily pointing his finger at Larry and Jen, arguing: “Ryan has never been there for him, but y’all put it on Bentley!”
The accusatory words upset Ryan’s dad, causing him to push off the couch and lunge toward Taylor, yelling: “You know what!”
Ryan followed suit and jumped off the couch toward Larry, as well, but both wives held them back.
Teen Mom OG – Season 9
Season 9 was filmed as the outbreak of coronavirus hit America.
Who’s in the cast this season?
Who are their boyfriends, husbands and baby daddies?
Teen Mom OG ‘s season nine aired on January 26th 2021 on MTV.
Jen and Maci grabbed their husband’s arms and tried to pull them back, to make them sit down again, with the Teen Mom trying to calm her husband, telling him: “Taylor, we’re not doing this.”
After the explosive fight, Bentley’s grandpa Larry exclusively told The Sun: “We, the family have been let go from the show by the network. It’s unbelievable.”
Though Larry was unable to confirm exactly why the family was let go, he admitted Maci was “so mad” at him at the reunion for claiming they hadn’t seen Bentley in a month.
He added: “We got in so much trouble.”
Larry was unable to confirm if Ryan, 33, and his wife, Mackenzie, 24, were also fired.
After The Sun’s report, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup claimed Ryan and Mackenzie were also fired after Maci demanded production take them off the show.
Larry and Jen appeared on 16 and Pregnant, and have been featured frequently on Teen Mom and Teen Mom OG over the years.
Maci, 29, often communicated with the grandparents over baby daddy Ryan to discuss visitation with their son Bentley.
The Teen Mom reportedly “exploded” at her ex’s parents during the Teen Mom reunion taping, and she and husband Taylor “stormed off” the set after branding Ryan a “piece of s**t,” sources claimed.
Producers reportedly tried to get the couple to face off with Ryan and his wife Mackenzie at first but they refused.
Maci’s son Bentley became estranged from his dad Ryan in part due to his father’s long battle with substance abuse and rehab stint in 2018.
The 12-year-old had been setting boundaries with his father, including choosing to not visit the house and asking his father to attend therapy sessions with him.
Maci has taken to Twitter to slam Ryan and Mackenzie, who blamed her for Bentley’s decision.
When Ryan called Maci a “spiteful evil b***h” because Bentley didn’t want to go to his brother Jagger’s birthday at their home, Maci tweeted: “I really wanted to post some ‘petty b*tch’ (and hilarious) comments.
“But I’ll wait until they can tell me the definition of ‘petty’ without googling it and reading it aloud.”
Then, when Mackenzie called Maci a “petty b***h” for keeping Bentley from them on last week’s episode, she went off after the episode.
