TEEN Mom OG star Ryan Edwards’ dad Larry called out Maci Bookout for “kicking” his son, as he insisted the recovering addict is “doing fine” with his sobriety.

Larry exclusively told The Sun of the reunion fight: “Ryan is so calm, even at the reunion. 

"We can’t win, just keep kicking the dog eventually he will bite you and when he does you want to put him down.”

Larry continued that his son, who has struggled with addiction, is "doing just fine” 

He added: "Do you think if anything had or would happen they wouldn’t have already exposed it?”

On Teen Mom OG, Bentley said he did not want to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their relationship.

Bentley made an exception for his half-brother Jagger's second birthday, but refused to go to the party at their home.  

When Ryan, who is also dad to Jagger, 2, and Stella, 1, with Mackenzie, called Maci a “spiteful evil b**h,” as he accused her of keeping Bentley from them, Maci fired back over Twitter.

She wrote: ”I really wanted to post some 'petty b***h' (and hilarious) comments, but I'll wait until they can tell me the definition of 'petty' without googling it and reading it aloud."

The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported Maci and Taylor fought with Ryan's parents on stage, as he and his wife Mackenzie refused to face off with the couple. 

A source told the outlet: “You could cut the tension with a knife when they were all sitting out there.

“But everything was OK until the very end of the segment. Maci kept giving vague answers and was making it clear she was upset but would not say why.”

Taylor then “exploded” on Jen and Larry. 

The insider said: “He told them Ryan is a ‘piece of s**t’ and that he, unlike Ryan, has been there for Bentley for a long time.

“He told Larry and Jen that Ryan should be more like he is. [Taylor] kind of got up and eventually asked Larry if he wanted to take things outside. It didn’t get that far, though. Nothing got physical.”

Maci, who is also mom to Jayde, 5, and Maverick, 4, then allegedly called Jen a "manipulative b***h" before they stormed off the stage.

Ryan’s father Larry previously told The Sun in October that the Teen Mom dad is “not allowed” to see Bentley, as the family “hasn’t gotten to see him very much.”

He previously said of Ryan and Maci: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed.
