TEEN Mom star Maci Bookout accused her ex Ryan Edwards’ parents, Jen and Larry, of “blatantly ignoring” her son Bentley’s feelings.
The families have been feuding for a while now over the 12-year-old and their different viewpoints on how best to care for him.

In a clip from Tuesday’s Teen Mom OG season premiere, Maci opened up about the nasty fight during the reunion episode between her husband, Taylor McKinney, and Ryan’s parents.
She explained how it all came to a head after she and Taylor “grew really frustrated” with Jen and Larry.
“We didn’t appreciate that they they lied…about us,” Maci said, “and they ignored Bentley’s feelings.”
The 30-year-old added: “Then, at the reunion, Taylor and Larry got into an argument over something that had been brewing for a while.”
During the the reunion, they say on couches across from one another, yelling back and forth, with Taylor 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.
While out at lunch with her friend Ashley, Maci said that the reunion ended up being a complete “disaster.”
“Larry, like, his body language, his face and the way he was talking, like he was gritting his teeth, he was pointing his finger,” the Teen Mom recapped. “Like, Taylor didn’t do anything wrong.”
Her friend backed up her, saying: “No, when someone puts a finger in your face and stands up, he did what any husband would do.”
After the chaos of the reunion, Maci told her tween Bentley about it and asked if he was mad about what went down.
Maci said he told her he was “not really” upset, but she made sure to let him know he could talk to her or someone else if he was.
She went on to her lunchmate, continuing to slam her baby daddy’s folks: “And, I’m sorry, but Jen and Larry are grown a** people.
“I don’t care if you don’t like me, I don’t care what you say, I don’t care whatever, but when you’re blatantly ignoring my child’s feelings, then I have a problem.”
The Edwards clan was let go following a blowout fight between Ryan’s dad Larry and Taylor during last season’s reunion special.
But now The Sun can exclusively reveal tensions were already running high between the show’s producers and Ryan before that.
He claimed the last straw for him came when he found out that they had taken down a US flag on his front porch, as production said it was “in their way.”
Ryan told The Sun: “What got me is when they took my flag down off the porch. They laid it on the ground and when I went down to pick it up they told me it was in their shot.
“I got real angry because it was an American flag and they said it was in their way. I said ‘Either put it back on the post or leave’ and that was the last time they ever came back, I guess.”
Ryan added that he and his wife Mackenzie were contemplating leaving the show before the firing.
Speaking about his life since moving on from Teen Mom OG, Ryan said: “We’ve been doing good since leaving the show, just kinda hanging out. Everybody’s happy and enjoying not dealing with MTV.
“I’m not resentful, MTV is all about making money and s***, and that’s all right.”
