'Teen Mom' Maci Bookout & Kyle King Break-Up Rumors Can't Be True

Maci BookoutI guess it was time for one of the Teen Mom stars who doesn't generate much gossip to get her spot in the tabloid pages. And US Weekly certainly went for the big shocker with claims that Tennessee mom Maci Bookout has been dumped by live-in boyfriend Kyle King. Too bad no one is going to believe this rumor.

Yeah, I said it. I don't believe it, and not just because Kyle is the first guy I've ever seen on a reality show who was actually man enough to be right in their helping potty train a kid who isn't even biologically his because he's so flipping crazy about the little boy's mommy.


The way the tabloids tell it, Maci was putting too much pressure on Kyle to pop the question and help her pop out some baby siblings for Bentley, so he took a runner, dropping her just a few days shy of their two-year anniversary. It seems plausible enough when you consider Maci blew off a semester's worth of college because she just wanted to hang out with Kyle and Bentley, and she's been seen on Teen Mom debating whether it would be good to get a second pregnancy over with while she's young.

But those episodes aired months ago and were shot a good year ago, and Kyle didn't take off then. He made it obvious he was in it for the long haul, not just for her, but for the little boy he so obviously loves.

And then, just a few weeks ago, he jumped on Twitter to tell the world that Maci is his best friend. That doesn't sound much like a guy who's scared of commitment and being pushed away by his girlfriend, does it? And while we're on the subject of Twitter, the fact that the two were still hanging out as recently as yesterday is made obvious by Kyle asking if she got lost on her way home from getting ice cream (and her answer that she stopped at Mickey D's ... no one said they had good eating habits!). That doesn't sound like a dead relationship, does it?

But maybe the best evidence -- well beyond Maci denying the tabloid reports -- is this. Her grandfather has been seriously ill for the past week or so, prompting her to send our requests for prayers for her "pawpaw." It would take a colossal jerk to dump a girl when her grandpa might be dying. And from what we've seen of Kyle King, he is anything but.
