Maci Bookout may be getting played.
While reports recently surfaced theTeen Mom star and her on-again, off-again fiance Ryan Edwards are officially back together, Edwards is allegedly still playing games and can't be trusted, Us Weekly reported in its latest issue.
"Ryan doesn't like Maci in a romantic way. They got together because he wanted to get back at his ex," an insider told Us. "She would love for them to be a family again."
Edwards, who is the father of Bookout's four-year-old son Bentley, is reportedly dating Bookout again only to make his ex-girlfriend Dalis Connell jealous.
"He wants to make Dalis miserable by making it seem like he and Maci are a couple," a source explained.
Edwards also reportedly gets especially flirty and affectionate with Bookout when Connell's friends are watching "so it'll get back to Dalis."
According to a Bookout pal, "He wants to make Dalis angry."
After Bookout's relationship with ex-boyfriend Kyle King ended in September, she was allegedly feeling "down" because "she wanted to marry and have another baby." Edwards, 24, reportedly came back into the picture soon afterwards, giving the 21-year-old reality TV star "butterflies" again.
The pair then allegedly sparked their romance back up when "Ryan told her he still had feelings for her. And she has never stopped loving him... [She] always wondered 'What if?' with Ryan," said a source close to Bookout.
"She said the time was right."
When both parties expressed mutual interest, they began hanging out, but Bookout reportedly wanted to keep the new relationship under wraps to protect her image.
"Maci didn't want friends to know. She thought they would judge her," the Bookout pal told Us.
A source close to Edwards added it's "big" that the pair even get along now, ultimately suggesting the pair communicating and being friendly with one another is a huge step forward from how things had been between them in the past.
Regardless of how things are going, Bookout and Edwards' reunion will reportedly be hidden from Bentley "until it is 100 percent serious," the insider told the magazine.
