Ryan Edwards returned to MTV last night in Being Maci, a special surrounding the life of his former fiancee and the mother of his child, Maci Bookout. During the show’s filming, Ryan and his girlfriend at the time, Dalis Connell, were nearing the end of their relationship and unfortunately, the special has prompted her to make some not-so-nice allegations against Ryan.
When asked by Starcasm what fans could expect from last night’s special, Dalis explained, “I actually don’t remember them filming anything else except me talking about leaving to go say bye to my mom one last time and then calling Ryan a million times because I found out he lied about going out and he actually cheated on me while I was out seeing my mom.”
Dalis’ mother had been diagnosed with cancer early last year and in December, she lost her battle. It was certainly a devastating time for her, but Ryan says he’s not nearly the heartless character she’s painted him out to be.
In a exclusive statement to Hollywoodite, Ryan explains, “I didn’t cheat on her I just broke up with her.”
Months prior to Dalis’ mother’s passing, Ryan had traveled to California with her to spend some quality time with her mother and support Dalis. While things may have not worked out between them, Ryan insists that he did not betray her in the way she claims and his mother appears to agree with him.
Ryan’s mother, Jennifer Edwards, seemed to have weighed in on the accusations last night. Hours after the article was posted, she posted a message on Twitter which simply read, “attention seekers.” A short time later, Maci re-tweeted the message.
