This week, Mackenzie shared an Instagram story, which was captured by Teen Mom Shade room, about Josh fooling around with her cousin.
“Obviously another affair. So I go to call the number, and it was my close cousin Ashley. What all went on? I don’t know. My family will never be the same, and we are all torn. I was not only hurt by him but by her,” read part of her message that got the cheating rumors swirling.

Days later, the reality TV star has used Twitter to set the record straight on what happened with Josh and Ashley. Plus, she wants the “dirt-digging” and “stalking” to stop.
“I never used the word ‘banging’ or ‘cheating’ please stop stalking and digging for relatives and invading privacy. Josh was texting and calling her for advice on how to handle me, and to me, that was wrong on both ends and enough to walk away. Now let’s all move along,” Mackenzie tweeted.
