Bentley’s relationship with his father has become strained because of Ryan’s addiction issues

In the promo, Maci asks Bentley if he wants to go to his brother Jagger’s birthday party and see Ryan.

Maci explained: “Bentley hasn’t seen his dad in a long time, and he’s made boundaries to keep his distance until they go to therapy together.

“So I’m not sure if he’s going to want to go to Jagger’s birthday.”

Bentley’s relationship with his father has become strained because of Ryan’s addiction issues.

This season has seen him begin seeing a therapist to help with their relationship.

Bentley told his grandmother he’d go to the birthday, and Maci said: “I agree with your decision, I think you should go.

“It’s your brother. Don’t let all of us adults screw it up for all you children.”

As well as Bentley, Maci shares daughter, Jayde, 5, and Maverick, 4, with her fiancé Taylor McKinney

Ryan has had a long battle with substance abuse and was last in rehab in 2018.

Earlier this month, The Sun exclusively revealed that he has been sued for “recklessly” causing a car crash, as the “suffering victim” is demanding $290,000. 

Despite the complaints coming from Ryan and his parents that Maci has been keeping Bentley away from them, she assured fans the decision has been Bentley’s alone.

She disclosed to MTV producers: “I couldn’t tell you the last time the words ‘I want to see my dad’ came out of his mouth.

“He definitely wants to still see his brothers and sister, but we spoke with Jen and Larry with Bentley. He told them he doesn’t want to see his dad anymore until he goes to therapy.
