Ryan has struggled with drugs for years and has been to rehab several times as well as facing multiple drug-related arrests.
The 33-year-old sparked concern while talking to Mackenzie outside their home about PCOS month, a month dedicated to raising awareness for polycystic ovary syndrome.
Ryan asked: “Why does it need a month… why… I’m just confused like why do you need awareness about something that you can’t control?”
Mackenzie replied that it was held to raise awareness for the syndrome.

Ryan said, “Yeah, that wouldn’t be very,” before laughing and saying, “very fun at all.”
Viewers took to social media to express their fears for the reality star after the scene.
“I don’t know if he is high or not but I have watched him for years and he blames Maci for everything,” one wrote.

Another added: “I feel like we can always tell with Ryan if you watch an episode or two if he looks clean. It’s those eyes.”
A third posted: “I’m a recovering addict this 12th of this month will be my fourth year clean and it’s obvious he isn’t sober.”
