Ryan Edwards: YES, I’m Back on Drugs! But I Did NOT Pull a Knife on Mackenzie … on August 3, 2023 at 1:56 pm The Hollywood Gossip

Published

These days, Ryan Edwards is living in an inpatient rehab facility, having been temporarily released from jail to undergo addiction treatment.

We wish him all the best in his efforts to get clean, but the reality of the situation is that he probably has more jail time coming to him, even if he finally manages to sober up.

That’s because Ryan stalked and harassed Mackenzie Standifer and went on a drug-fueled bender prior to his latest arrest.

And because Edwards was already on probation when all of this happened, completing the program probably won’t be enough to make him a free man.

But none of that had transpired when Ryan filmed a scene with Maci Bookout for this week’s episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter.

In fact, it looked as though Bentley’s mom and dad were on the verge of repairing their co-parenting relationship.

Of course, every other part of Ryan’s life was in shambles, a fact he admitted to during the conversation.

“Mackenzie is being an absolute pain in my ass. She don’t know why she left, it’s been everything under the sun. It’s because of my addiction, because I was outside in my garage,” he told Maci.

She responded by advising him to “keep focusing on you and all these crazy children and stay away from her.”

“It’s not shocking to me. I know when we filmed the reunion and had that conversation about starting fresh with coparenting, she’s not gonna let this happen, she’s not,” Maci later told her husband, Taylor McKinney.

“And then she lost her mind anytime him and Bentley were gonna go do something because she couldn’t go, because it was supposed to be the two of them.”‘

Yes, it’s a little surprising to hear Maci take Ryan’s side against Mackenzie, but it’s important to remember that at that time, she was only hearing his side of the story.

“I do think this has everything to do with Ryan and Bentley’s relationship growing, me and Ryan trying to work together. I don’t think she can handle it,” Bookout continued.

“Bentley is the one that pays for all of this, so we have to stay on the same team. I hope this divorce doesn’t get messy.”

Maci added that Bentley was “kind of shocked” to learn about his dad’s divorce, he didn’t seem “bothered by it or upset.”

“He’s never really been a big fan of Mackenzie’s,” she explained.

But despite Maci’s hope that the Ryan’s split wouldn’t “get messy,” it quickly did exactly that.

Later in the episode, a Teen Mom producer named Kiki paid a visit to Ryan in order to ask about some shocking allegations made by Mackenzie.

“She said I f—ing held a knife to her back or something like that … f— no, that’s so dumb,” he said, denying that he held her at knifepoint.

“Everyone knows when I get angry, I get f—ing angry. So she’s gonna use that against me. But I ain’t never put my hands on a woman ever before.”

Ryan has publicly accused Mackenzie of cheating on him on numerous occasions, and it seems he was fixating on the idea at the time of the previous night’s argument.

“I was like, she left this house last night and there was only one reason why she left this house,” he told Kiki.

“She can’t lie very well, she’ll stumble over every word she says and I was like, ‘Where the f— did you stay last night?’ and she couldn’t come up with a good answer. So I started putting two and two together.”

He went on to suggest that Mackenzie was jealous of his friendship with Maci.

“I think that’s what kind of pissed Mackenzie off too, like really. I don’t think she ever wanted us to have a relationship,” he said, adding that Bentley “didn’t like [Mackenzie] anyways.”

Kiki then asked whether he felt his wife was “threatened” by his coparenting relationship, to which he replied:

“Yeah, I think that really f—ing sent her over the edge.”

Eventually, of course, the truth of the confrontation came out:

“You’re an addict, you are getting a divorce, can’t go back to your house, kids no longer live with you. That is a slippery slope,” Kiki said, prompting Ryan to blurt out, “I done f—ed up, I ain’t gonna lie.”

The producer then asked Ryan if he had relapsed amid all of the latest drama, to which he replied, “Yeah.”

So yeah, given that Ryan was on drugs at the time of the incident, and he later came back and trashed the house, we’re gonna go ahead and believe Mackenzie’s version of events.

Edwards is due back in court on August 12, at which time a judge will assess his progress and determine his fate.

Can You Crack the Code to Film Distribution Success?

Published

on

In the ever-evolving film industry, getting your film in front of audiences can be a daunting task. With the rise of streaming platforms and shifting consumer habits, traditional distribution and sales strategies are no longer the only game in town. In this article, we’ll explore the various pathways for film distribution and sales, including working with distributors, sales agents, and platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Traditional Distribution
Traditional distribution involves partnering with a distributor who will handle the release of your film in theaters, on DVD, and through broadcast television. This can include major studios like Warner Bros. or Sony Pictures, as well as independent distributors like A24 or Magnolia Pictures. Distributors will typically take a percentage of the revenue generated by the film in exchange for their services.
Sales Agents
Sales agents, also known as film sales companies, act as intermediaries between filmmakers and distributors. They will often attend film festivals and markets, like the American Film Market or Cannes, to pitch your film to potential buyers. Sales agents will typically take a commission on any sales they secure.
Streaming Platforms
Streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu have revolutionized the way audiences consume film content. These platforms are increasingly becoming major players in the distribution and sales landscape. They often acquire films outright, bypassing traditional distribution channels.
Self-Distribution
With the rise of digital platforms, self-distribution has become a viable option for filmmakers. This involves handling distribution and sales in-house, often through a filmmaker’s own production company. Self-distribution allows for greater creative control and potentially higher profit margins.
Strategies for Success
So, how can filmmakers navigate this complex landscape? Here are a few key strategies to keep in mind:
  • Know your audience: Understand who your target audience is and where they consume content.
  • Build a strong online presence: Develop a website and social media channels to showcase your film and connect with potential buyers.
  • Attend film festivals and markets: Network with industry professionals and showcase your film to potential buyers.
  • Consider hybrid distribution models: Combine traditional distribution with self-distribution or streaming platforms to maximize reach and revenue.
Film distribution and sales have evolved significantly in recent years. By understanding the various pathways available, filmmakers can make informed decisions about how to get their film in front of audiences. Whether through traditional distribution, sales agents, streaming platforms, or self-distribution, the key to success lies in knowing your audience, building a strong online presence, and being flexible in an ever-changing landscape.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence Rev Up for ‘Bad Boys: Ride or Die’

Published

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are hitting the road to promote their upcoming action-comedy flick, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die,” the fourth installment of the beloved “Bad Boys” franchise.

Despite recent health concerns surrounding Lawrence, the duo’s chemistry remains intact as they embark on an extensive promotional tour across Europe. Smith has expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of fans and praised Sony Pictures for standing by him during challenging times.

The movie marks Smith’s return to the big screen after the infamous Oscars slap incident, and it centers around a quest to redeem the tarnished reputation of the duo’s late captain, Conrad Howard (Joe Pantoliano), who is posthumously accused of being an informant for a Mexican drug cartel.

While the response to “Ride or Die” will undoubtedly be seen as a commentary on Smith’s renewed box office appeal, Lawrence’s manic comic energy remains the driving force behind these films. His delivery of iconic lines during intense action sequences is unparalleled, and the movie understands the importance of crafting situations for him to shine.

Smith, on the other hand, seems to be playing a more subdued role, allowing Lawrence to take center stage. If the slap incident led to a reevaluation of Smith as a leading man, “Ride or Die” offers a perfect vehicle to remind audiences of his exceptional talent.

As the summer release of “Beverly Hills Cop” with Eddie Murphy approaches, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die” serves as a reminder of the enduring appeal of breezily entertaining genre movies featuring movie stars. Will Smith isn’t going anywhere, and his collaboration with Martin Lawrence promises to be an entertaining ride for fans of the franchise.

Michael Jackson’s Children Blocked from Trust Funds Over $700M Tax Dispute

Published

on

Michael Jackson’s three children – Prince, 27, Paris, 25, and Bigi, 22 – along with his mother Katherine, 94, have been barred from accessing funds from the late singer’s trust due to an ongoing legal battle between Jackson’s estate and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) over a $700 million tax bill.

The dispute arose when the IRS audited the estate’s federal estate tax return and claimed that it had “undervalued its assets,” resulting in an additional $700 million in taxes and penalties owed. While the estate initially won in court in 2021, it later filed a motion for reconsideration regarding the court’s valuation of Jackson’s music catalog, which is still pending.

Michael Jackson and children

Until this case is resolved and the value of Jackson’s estate is determined, the IRS and the estate cannot agree on the deduction amount for the federal estate tax return. Consequently, the estate’s co-executors, John Branca and John McClain, have denied requests from the beneficiaries to release funds, citing the ongoing IRS audit.

Family Feud Over Legal Fees

The situation is further complicated by a separate legal feud between Katherine Jackson and her grandson Bigi. Katherine has been attempting to use funds from the estate to cover legal fees incurred while challenging the $600 million sale of Jackson’s music assets to Sony, a move supported by Bigi and approved by a judge.

Katherine’s lawyer, Adam Pines, accused the executors of “trying to punish” her for contesting their actions and claimed they would have paid the legal fees if they were related to other litigation. Pines suggested the executors are intentionally withholding payments until Katherine passes away.

Trust Distribution Requirements

According to the court filing, Jackson’s trust stipulates that 20% of his estate, as valued for federal estate tax purposes, should be donated to charity, with the remaining assets distributed to subtrusts. However, Katherine’s filing disputes the executors’ belief that charitable donations must be made before any distributions to beneficiaries, arguing that “nothing in the Trust requires those payments to be made before any preliminary distribution to other beneficiaries.”

Bigi, on the other hand, has requested the court deny Katherine’s request, stating that “a reversal on appeal would be an extreme longshot” and that her decision to appeal is “not for the benefit of the heirs.”

As the legal battle continues, the estate is providing for Jackson’s children and mother through a “family allowance,” but no funds from the trust itself will be distributed until the tax dispute is resolved and the estate’s value is finalized.
