Now Maci, 31, has shared a mysterious quote to her Instagram feed, leading fans to believe it could be her response to the news.
The reality star took to her profile on Wednesday night to post a message on a blue background.
The note read: “If you absolutely must talk about them, talk about them to God; make it a matter of prayer.”
Maci captioned her post with three prayer emojis, and fans raced to the comments section with their support.
Also on Wednesday, the Teen Mom star’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy Ryan Edwards, 35, was arrested after getting hit with two warrants for accusations that he “stalked” and “violated his order of protection” against his wife, Mackenzie.
Maci and Ryan share their son Bentley, 14, while the father also shares Jagger, four, and Stella, three, with Mackenzie.
The U.S. Sun has exclusively obtained the Arrest Affidavit from Tennessee courts that reveal the cryptic texts that landed him behind bars.
Ryan violated Mackenzie’s protection order against him by texting her on February 19 at 1:45am: “My god I don’t haven’t [sic] to live my life without you! Sorry!”
He texted her again on February 23 at 4:57pm: “For what it’s worth, I’m sorry and I do miss you.”
The court papers continued: “Mrs. Edwards didn’t respond to any messages from Mr. Edwards.”
The U.S. Sun can confirm he remains behind bars on a $50,000 bond.
He is expected in court on March 6.
Earlier this week, The U.S. Sun exclusively confirmed with Tennessee courts that Ryan had two active warrants for his arrest filed on February 23.
The Hamilton County sheriff confirmed Mackenzie, 26, filed an incident report with authorities on February 23 against her husband.
Ryan was initially arrested on February 10 for harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, and order of protection violation.
He was arrested at his place of employment and held on a $5,000 bond.
Mackenzie filed the protective order on February 9.
She wrote in the February 8 petition about an alleged January 15, 2023 fight: “Arguing, Ryan punched holes in the walls and doors. [He] held me up by my neck to the wall. Threw me down in hallway and said if he could not have me no one could.
“Opened pocket knife, put to my back like he was going to kill me. This was in front of children. I tried to leave, he smashed my phone, took my car keys.”
Mackenzie wrote that a co-worker then called 911.
In the petition, Mackenzie claimed of a January 24, 2023 fight: “[He] came into bedroom where I was laying down. Pretending like he’s going to punch my face. Breaks bed with me in it. Getting in my face yelling.
“I went to get kids and leave. He wouldn’t let me leave. Threw me down in living room. Threw menthol nicotine in my eyes.”
Mackenzie claimed in the petition that her father called authorities and that officers found a loaded AR gun in the home.
She then described a February 8, 2023, phone call where he threatened her, claiming: “Phone call threatening me, saying I’m not going to like what’s going to happen to me.”
Mackenzie then named a motorcycle gang he joined and claimed they “will find [her].”
Ryan claimed to The U.S. Sun that he did not join the gang.
Mackenzie also noted Ryan has a “vast history of substance abuse.”
She claimed in the petition that sheriffs “documented him stating still using heroin” on January 28.
The former MTV star initially requested Ryan have no contact with her and stay away from her home and workplace.
She requested temporary custody of their children, Jagger, four, and Stella, three, though she did not ask they be protected from their father.
She also asked the court to order Ryan to move out of their home “immediately.”
