When a fan suggested that the two ‘seemed solid,’ the fitness model affirmed: ‘We were. We were truly best friends. It’s all just devastating.’ 

On their first episode of Teen Mom OG on August 5, Mackenzie suspected Josh may be cheating after he traveled away for a rodeo and she received a text from a woman who reported seeing him. 

Mackenzie confronted Josh later, telling him she was upset he hid the truth about going to a bar.

‘There was no affection or anything like that there,’ Josh said. 

‘I’m just here to tell you that I was at a bar, and I’d like you to trust me when I’m getting a few drinks at a bar… I was just avoiding the fight, and I was wrong.’

Teen Mom OG airs on MTV Mondays at 6pm ET.
