Mackenzie Standifer Responds To Rumors She’s Dating Someone New With Ryan Edwards Behind Bars – UnlistedNews

It’s been a rough year for troubled Teen Mom star Ryan Edwards.

Edwards is currently behind bars awaiting trial on a number of charges.

He has already been sentenced to a year in jail for stalking and harassing his ex-wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

And given that we were on probation during his last spree and the arrest that got him, it’s likely that Ryan’s going to be locked up for a long, long time.

Obviously, that’s bad news for Ryan, but it’s probably good news for Mackenzie, who has spent years terrified of her future ex-husband.

She’s kept a low profile for most of this year, but Mackenzie returned to TikTok last week to reassure her fans (and haters) that she’s thriving in her new life as a single mom.

Mack was instantly reminded of why he went on hiatus in the first place, as fans quickly resumed speculation about his personal life.

Specifically, they began to allege that Mackenzie had become romantically involved with an old friend named Josh Panter.

Now, in a new interview with In Touch, Mackenzie has denied the rumors, insisting that she is single and focusing on her duties as a working mom.



“I don’t have a boyfriend. I’m focused on my career and my children,” Mackenzie tells the outlet.

“I am working on myself to give them the life and future they deserve.”

Panter echoed the statement, telling British tabloid The Sun that he and Mackenzie are just friends.

“I’ve known Mackenzie for 10 years or so, then earlier this year we reconnected,” Josh tells the outlet.

“Mackenzie and I are friends and we enjoy each other’s company. None of us are concerned with ‘titles’. We both just got out of a marriage.”

The rumor appears to have originated with a Facebook post by Josh’s mother, in which she shared a photo of Mackenzie’s children and discussed them in the caption.

“My blonde bandits…love you little ones,” wrote Cindy Green Panter.

Many took the fact that their families were vacationing together as confirmation of the Mackenzie-Josh romance.

But it looks like the two recently single divorcees are enjoying each other’s company in a platonic way, at least for now.

Neither party has ruled out the possibility of a future romance, but it seems Mackenzie has enough going on in her life these days without adding a new love story to the mix.

But hey, they say the best romantic relationships start as friendships!

No matter what, it seems that with a very dark chapter behind her, Mackenzie’s future looks extremely bright!
