New footage shows Mackenzie in tears, surveying the horrifying damage left behind by her violent ex 💔🎥
Newly released police body cam footage has exposed the horrific destruction left behind by Ryan Edwards, estranged husband of Teen Mom star Mackenzie Edwards. The shocking video shows Mackenzie in tears as she navigates the wreckage of their Tennessee home, revealing the aftermath of Ryan’s violent rampage.
Mackenzie’s Heartbreaking Breakdown 😢💔
The U.S. Sun exclusively released the emotional video of Mackenzie breaking down in tears while standing amidst the wreckage of her destroyed home. She confessed to an officer that their relationship took a turn for the worse on New Year’s Day, citing Ryan’s severe substance abuse issues which she discovered the day after their wedding.
A House of Horrors 😨🏠
Police body cam footage showed the shocking destruction in the vacant home, with broken windows, damaged furniture, walls covered in graffiti, and children’s toys destroyed. Mackenzie revealed that their children, Jagger, 4, and Stella, 3, had witnessed Ryan’s violent behavior.
The Devastating Aftermath 🏚️😔
Mackenzie guided officers through the damaged rooms, including their children’s bedrooms which were left in chaos. The heartbroken mother confirmed that all the
damage inside the house was new. A source revealed to The U.S. Sun that the home would require about $100,000 worth of work to make it livable again.
Ryan’s Arrest and Denial 🚔🚨
Ryan was arrested later that day for harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, and order of protection violation. In a video obtained by The U.S. Sun, Ryan denied causing the damage to the home and accused someone else of the destruction. However, sources close to Josh, Mackenzie’s new boyfriend, denied his involvement.
The Toll on Their Children 😢👨👩👧👦
Mackenzie revealed that Jagger and Stella had seen Ryan’s violent behavior and were understandably affected by the situation. An officer advised her to seek therapy for the children and to be strong for them, as they would need her support in the wake of their father’s destructive actions.
Moving Forward 💔💪
Mackenzie filed a petition for a protection order against Ryan on February 8, accusing him of domestic violence. She later filed for divorce on February 27. The U.S. Sun reported that Mackenzie has since started dating newly-divorced dad of two, Josh Panter, and has been spending time with him and their combined families.
