On the last couple of Teen Mom episodes, there’s been a lot of ups and downs in Bentley’s relationship with his dad, and he told his mom Maci Bookout he wants to go therapy for it.
The 12-year-old was planning on going to his half-brother Jagger’s birthday party when it was going to be at his grandparents’ house, but when he learned it was going to be it at his estranged dad’s place, he wasn’t so sure.
After a lot of drama between Bentley’s parents and step-parents, he ended up going to the event, but he claimed his dad barely spoke to him, aside from a greeting.
This outraged viewers, especially once they saw that Mackenzie had posted a happy photo of the kids all togethe at the party, despite Bentley apparently having an awful time and an uncomfortable reunion with his dad.
The 24-year-old captioned the series of pics: “Yesterday we celebrated Jaggy’s birthday! Safe to say we had a great time!
“How could you not have a blast around this bunch? My🖤is full.”
Fans slammed her for it, writing: “The fact that you really posted this picture knowing that y'all didn't even speak to Bentley the whole time he was there is sad 😔😔😢”
Mackenzie defended herself and her husband, clapping back: “the fact you honestly believe that is very sad”
This hinting that Bentley lied about his dad not talking to him at the party, arriving late, and staying mostly in a separate room away from everyone, only angered Teen Mom fans even more.
One Instagram user wrote: “I guess she’s calling Bentley a liar……”
Another had the same thought, asking: “so you are calling Bentley a liar?”
A third said: “the fact that you just called your step son a liar 🙄”

Others told her that “Bentley literally said it” and that she should be more considerate of her step-son, and they added that they were going to “believe” the tween over her.
Mackenzie shares 2-year-old son Jagger and 11-month-old daughter Stella with husband Ryan, while she also has son Hudson from a previous relationship.
Fans have been accusing her lately of not caring as much about her step-son Bentley as she does her own kids, as well as not being considerate of his feelings.
Her husband Ryan's troubles with drug abuse have been heavily documented on the MTV show, along with his struggling relationship with his 12-year-old son because of it.
The TV personality's legal trouble with drugs began in March 2017 when he was issued a citation for simple possession of heroin.
He was caught on camera slurring his words and nodding off while on his way to his wedding with wife Mackenzie on Teen Mom.
This season of Teen Mom has seen Bentley begin seeing a therapist to help with their relationship, but Ryan has yet to agree to visit with him for joint sessions.
