“Better worry about your own sins, cause God ain’t gonna ask you about mine,” Josh wrote, with the post’s caption reading, “I’m just here for the comments.”
However, it was a comment he left on the post that caught the attention of fans. He warned his followers not to believe everything they see or read.
“People, I’ve been through the ringer being on that damn show, this is nothing new to me,” Josh wrote. “I get it you all are pissed at the fact of what you read on the internet or seen on TV. ‘Ok?’ But if you are going to come at me with what little you all really know, know your damn facts! And know that this is not a one sided ball game.”
In a since-deleted Facebook post, Mackenzie accused Josh of having an affair with her “close cousin” one week after her mother Angie Douthit’s passing in December 2019.
In the post, Mackenzie said she found out Josh’s alleged affair after pulling some of his call and text logs.
“I know many have it worse than me. This isn’t a pity party,” Mackenzie began. “Life has really thrown me some huge curve balls. Idk how I’ve made it here.”
“Obviously the world knows Josh had an affair last year, and then months later repurposed promising he changed and got ‘saved.’ It really made my mom happy and I chose to forgive, and trust God,” she continued.
The Teen Mom star said things between her and Josh quickly changed after her mother’s passing.
“Then in December I was already in deep pain and had to watch her take her last breath and Josh was there for me until 2 weeks later things changed. All of a sudden I was a freak for crying and being depressed,” Mackenzie added.
“I would lay in bed and wonder why I was so crazy because that’s what he made me feel like. And then life slowly turned into him working all day, coming home to shower and fishing all night. Again, I wondered ‘What is wrong with me? I need him here to hold me together,’ but [I] just gave him grace and knew he didn’t know how to handle it,” she wrote.
The reality star said she “made the random decision to pull Josh’s call and text logs. To find out that one week after my mom died, when he started leaving and changing his behavior, to find he was texting a woman 3-600 times per month and calling her on these nights he was ‘fishing’ until 3 a.m.”
“Obviously another affair. So, I go to call the number and it was my close cousin,” Mackenzie alleged. “What all went on? Idk. My family will never be the same and we are all torn. I WAS NOT only hurt by him, but by her.”
“I have cried until my eyes were swollen shut. I am in utter shock. I’m now opening my eyes to what a horrible man Josh has been. He has been a lie and how can you watch your wife lose her mom and make these decisions,” the Teen Mom star continued. “I’m sad for my kids, I love Jesus and I loved my family. People have tried to tell me for year[s] Josh doesn’t love me and I just made excuses for him.”
She said that the incident was the final strike for Josh.
“Today is the day I walk away. Pray for me, that I can function, feel worthy again and find hope. Pray for my kids, I always wanted my family to work so they don’t have to live in two different houses. I was 100% committed to Josh and so much I don’t understand,” she wrote.
Mackenzie also confirmed the news of the alleged affair on Twitter. She also shared an article link titled “Mackenzie McKee: I Caught My Husband Banging My Cousin! Our Marriage is OVER!” She wrote, “It’s true” alongside a broken heart emoji.
The pair share sons 3-year-old Broncs Weston and 8-year-old Gannon Dewayne, and 6-year-old daughter Jaxie. Mackenzie and Josh married in 2013 and have been together since 2009.
Last August, Mackenzie announced she and Josh were taking a break.
“I would like to say, that due to stress, me needing to stay focused, the media, etc. I am deciding my marriage needs a break. My heart breaks for my kids. But as of right now, this is what’s best. Thank you,” she tweeted at the time.
The duo later reconciled.
