MTV‘s Maci Bookout may have considered him as her “soul mate,” but it sounds as though things were moving a little too fast for boyfriend Kyle King, who ended the couple’s relationship after a year and a half of dating. Keep reading for all the details on the latest Teen Mom split.
After almost a year and a half of dating, Teen Mom star Maci Bookout and beau Kyle King are no longer an item. It wasn’t long ago that the single mom was gushing about their relationship to Life&Style, so what went wrong?
The pair, who had been living together since the summer of 2010, were – and by all accounts still are – very much in love, but according to pals, that wasn’t enough for Bookout, 20.
“Maci wanted something way more serious,” a friend tells Us Weekly of the recent break-up, just days shy of their anniversary. “She was never happy enough just being a couple. She always wanted more, more, more, whether it was a ring or another baby.”
Kyle, unable to handle the pressure, “broke it off,” says the insider, emphasizing that Maci “pushed him away,” but it was Bookout who was quoted in July saying: “I’m not ready for marriage. And neither one of us wants to get married for the wrong reasons,” adding that she wanted to focus on her son and finishing school instead.
