Ryan Edwards and Mackenzie Standifer may be headed for a split.

As the Teen Mom OG couple awaits the birth of their baby boy, a source claims they are completely at odds and unhappy in their marriage.

“Ryan and Mackenzie are [on] and off,” a source told Radar Online on April 19. “Things are way worse than they seem. Neither one can stand each other!”

And despite Ryan’s recent drug arrest and cheating scandal, Mackenzie has remained at Ryan’s side, although not for genuine reasons according to sources.

“She just sticks around for the paycheck,” the source said.

Fans saw cracks in the couple’s relationship during the Teen Mom OG finale episode last week. During the show, as Ryan and Mackenzie discussed their baby news, Ryan became frustrated with his wife and didn’t seem to be nearly as happy as she was about her pregnancy.

“Mac your attitude,” he said.  “You’re a d**k!” she responded.

As their bickering continued in the car on the way home from Ryan’s parent’s house, Ryan informed Mackenzie that he wasn’t sure if he could deal with her for her entire pregnancy.

“I just don’t know if I can do this for nine months with you. I think we just need to separate for nine months,” he explained.

While family members have reportedly grown concerned about the relationship, Mackenzie’s mother is said to be too “afraid” to intervene because her daughter has allegedly “threatened to take Hudson away from her before.”

Hudson is the four-year-old son Mackenzie shares with first husband Zachary Stephens.

In addition to Mackenzie’s mother’s reported concerns, Ryan’s ex-girlfriend, Maci Bookout, is allegedly worried about the reality star as well and recently said on Teen Mom OG that he is not currently sober. According to Maci, she’s heard from a number of people that Ryan hasn’t been clean and doesn’t want their nine-year-old son, Bentley, spending time with him when he’s under the influence.

Mackenzie has also maintained that her husband is sober and recently told Radar Online that she and Ryan never split, despite his March 2017 heroin arrest.

Ryan and Mackenzie will welcome son Jagger later this year. The child is due on October 16.
