New reports saying "Teen Mom" star Maci Bookout is single again after breaking up with boyfriend Kyle King are completely false, she said.
Bookout's Twitter feed says otherwise: "well once again the tabloids are wrong…dont (sic) waste your time!" The couple has been together for nearly two years, and the show featured segments of Bookout saying she wanted to marry King.
The breakup as reported by Us magazine says, "Maci wanted something way more serious. She was never happy enough just being a couple. She always wanted more, more, more, whether it was a ring or another baby. It's really sad because they love each other, but she pushed him away," according to one source.
Bookout has been estranged from son Bentley's father, Ryan, since he was born three years ago. "I really just wanted to show girls how hard it was to be a teen parent," she told NBC. "I wanted girls who might get pregnant to see there are options out there to move forward with your life and still have goals."
She, along with other girls from the series, appeared in a public service announcement for teen pregnancy prevention. The girls described alternatives to premarital sex. "The night I got pregnant, I wish that me and my boyfriend were cuddling and watching a movie," said Catelynn Lowell. "Cuddling is better than going all the way," added Farrah Abraham.
Bookout has been an advocate for teens, encouraging them to wait until they are much older or married to have sex. She has appeared on Dr. Drew's "Life Changers" show with other teen moms to explain the reality of teen parenthood. "This is never what we thought motherhood would be like -- we want the best for our kids," she said.
The new season of "Teen Mom" will air in July on MTV.
