Ryan and his wife Mackenzie, 24, have also been let go from the MTV series.
A source told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup: “Ryan and Mackenzie, as well as Jen and Larry, were all on a call with production on Tuesday informing them they won’t be on the show anymore going forward.
“The Edwards were informed that Maci’s reps wanted to go a different direction and showcase all of her abilities. Maci went to production and explained she wanted her story to cover all the parts of her life and no longer focus on Ryan and his family.”
The insider claimed returning in the future is an option, as “they were just being set aside right now.”
The source continued to claim: “Ryan and Larry told them not to waste their time coming back to film in the future if they were serious about it.”
The outlet reported the family will make an appearance next season to discuss the reunion show fight.
The Sun was the first to report on the firings, as Larry previously said: “We, the family have been let go from the show by the network. It's unbelievable.”
Though Larry was unable to confirm why the family was let go, he admitted Maci was “so mad” at him at the reunion for claiming they hadn’t seen Bentley in a month.
He added: “We got in so much trouble.”
Larry was unable to confirm if Ryan, 33, and his wife, Mackenzie, 24, were also fired.
MTV did not immediately respond to The Sun's request for comment.
Larry and Jen appeared on 16 and Pregnant, and have been featured frequently on Teen Mom and Teen Mom OG over the years.
Maci, 29, often communicated with the grandparents over Ryan to discuss visitation with their son Bentley, 12.
The firing comes after MTV released a teaser from the reunion show of Larry standing up to confront Taylor during an argument.
The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reported of the fight: “You could cut the tension with a knife when they were all sitting out there.
“But everything was OK until the very end of the segment. Maci kept giving vague answers and was making it clear she was upset but would not say why.”
Taylor then “exploded” on Jen and Larry.
The insider said: “He told them Ryan is a ‘piece of s**t’ and that he, unlike Ryan, has been there for Bentley for a long time.
“He told Larry and Jen that Ryan should be more like he is. [Taylor] kind of got up and eventually asked Larry if he wanted to take things outside. It didn’t get that far, though. Nothing got physical.”
Maci, who is also mom to Jayde, 5, and Maverick, 4, then allegedly called Jen a "manipulative b***h" before they stormed off the stage.
Ryan’s father Larry previously told The Sun in October that the Teen Mom dad is “not allowed” to see Bentley as the family “hasn’t gotten to see him very much.”
He previously said of Ryan and Maci: “Their relationship hasn’t been going well. It’s not any better. Something came up that she wanted and needed.
“Ryan wasn’t going to comply with everything she wants and needs and we’ve been shut down.
“Bentley right now, we can’t even see him, they’re not even allowed to see him. It is what it is.”
Maci has been on the outs with Ryan ever since his jail and rehab stints for heroin abuse.
Larry has insisted his son is sober today, as fans speculated Ryan, who is also dad to Jagger, 2, Stella, 1, and stepson Hudson with Mackenzie, may have relapsed after he appeared “high” on a previous episode.
On the current season, Bentley refused to see his father until he agreed to go to therapy with him to work on their strained relationship.
Maci has taken to Twitter to slam Ryan and Mackenzie, who blamed her for Bentley's decision.
When Ryan called Maci a “spiteful evil b***h” because Bentley didn’t want to go to his brother Jagger’s birthday at their home, Maci tweeted: "I really wanted to post some 'petty b*tch' (and hilarious) comments, but I'll wait until they can tell me the definition of 'petty' without googling it and reading it aloud.”
Then, when Mackenzie called Maci a “petty b***h” for keeping Bentley from them on last week's episode, she went off after the episode.
Maci fired: “When that girl says 'if it has any effect on you seeing B' & then he says 'she does that all the time' I’m like hold the damn phone.
"Do I have control over his bio dad showing up to 5 out of the 100 school/sport events Benny has? & why does he never call/text B?”
She added: "I’d rather be a petty b***h than a stupid one. #allday."
Larry previously told The Sun he is “sorry” his grandson “didn’t get to enjoy both families without the drama.”
