Mackenzie McKee will be seen on a special episode of Teen Mom: Where Are They Now? tonight on MTV and during the show, fans will watch as the former Teen Mom 3 star opens up about her near-split from husband Josh McKee.
On September 19, OK! Magazine shared a sneak peek at the upcoming episode and in it, Mackenzie admits that after the birth of each of her sons, including Gannon and Broncs, she and Josh went through hard times. That said, they nearly didn’t make it through their latest hardships, which began after Broncs’ birth in 2016.
“Things got really bad,” Mackenzie admitted on the show.
Earlier this year, during an interview with Radar Online, Mackenzie opened up about her marriage issues and revealed her husband had actually filed for divorce last year amid allegations of Mackenzie being unfaithful.
“I was in a really dark place,” she confessed. “Then I had [our third child] Broncs [in 2016] and it got even worse. He actually left and ended up filing for divorce. I think we were separated for two months.”
At the time Mackenzie was accused of having an affair, Josh went on a rant against her on social media and she quickly denied she had cheated. Shortly thereafter, she and her husband were able to mend their relationship and appear to be doing okay at the moment.
“Since then we opened up our own businesses and we got a house that’s a very nice home for our kids,” she said this past March. “But we’re still a hot mess!”
