Splitsville For ‘Teen Mom’ Couple Maci Bookout, Kyle King?

Splitsville For ‘Teen Mom’ Couple Maci Bookout, Kyle King?, To everyone holding out hope that Maci and Kyle are still together, Maci confirmed the split herself during one of her speaking engagements. Here’s Maci quoted an paraphrasedby her Facebook fanpage:
For everyone wondering WHY Maci & Kyle broke up, Maci said this to fans at Slippery Rock University: She said she didn’t think Kyle/the relationship was right for her anymore, & that she only likes having to worry about herself & Bentley. That is very mature & shows what a caring mother she is! Her & Kyle remain friends & he did finally get to see Bentley-they all went bowling. The break-up has been hard on Kyle because he misses Benny so much, but Maci doesn’t want to confuse Bentley or hurt him so she’s understandably being careful. (Ryan is still dating Dalis & him and Maci are not planning to get back together btw). LIKE this if you agree Maci is doing whats best for her & Bentley and you admire her strength!!
Most Teen Mom fans are well aware the stars of the show are under contract to not talk about things going on in their lives that could potentially be featured as a plot line on the show. That being said, it appears as though Maci Bookout and Kyle King are doing everything within their legal power to let fans know they have split up without actually saying they have split up. (We have an insider close to the situation who also says they’re relationship is kaput. sadz)
The first signs the two were having problems was a reported fight at a California hotel while Maci was there to film an episode of Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers (set to air tomorrow, btw). As we said in our previous post, a hotel security guard reportedly went to the couple’s room to break up and argument when he heard Kyle saying some exceedingly derogatory things to Maci and when the guard entered the room he found Kyle with “his hands on her arms.”
Soon after the hotel incident the usually lovey dovey couple toned down their online affection, before halting their interaction on Twitter altogether on January 30. Since that time Maci has retweeted a number of not-so-subtle hints that she and Kyle are no longer together as well as a few of her own, including a photo of her and Kyle together with the caption “frans” on January 30 in which Maci appears to have a different not-so-subtle message (along with a new hairstyle):
Here are a collection of tweets from Maci and Kyle over the last few weeks, including one from Kyle that has since been deleted that read, “Make grown man cry” with a photo of him and Bentley together.
All of this is pretty circumstantial, I know, and we usually try to steer clear of pure rumors and speculation. But, add to Kyle and Maci’s altered online interactions the fact that Kyle is no longer following Maci on Twitter (UPDATE, and now Maci is no longer following Kyle!), Kyle has reportedly changed his personal Facebook relationship status to “single,” and we have a reliable source telling us Maci has moved out and is currently staying with her girlfriends (which seems to be supported by the tweet, “@AshleyDill02 @ktroden @nikkihampstead hurrrrry home yall! me n benny are lonely”), and I think you’ll agree the rumored split is more than likely true.
The frustrating thing is that Maci can’t come right out and say anything, and I’m guessing Kyle King is also under contract, so we won’t know for sure for some time (they probably won’t even address it on Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers show tomorrow, which was taped the day after their reported explosive hotel fight.) If they are in fact broken up, it’s will be a real bummer for most fans of the show because the two seemed to have the strongest relationship of either Teen Mom franchise outside of Catelynn and Tyler. I’ve always been a big fan of Maci and Kyle individually and as a couple, so it will be a real drag if I have to watch them go through a painful break up similar to that of Leah Messer and Corey Simms.
