Bookout was rumoured to have reunited with boyfriend Kyle King in July after a tumultuous split, but she has now clarified that her sole focus is parenting son Bentley.
"I've been single for four or five months - happily. It's awesome," Bookout disclosed to Us Magazine.
Bookout went on to explain how she learned that 3-year-old son Bentley should always be the top priority in her life.
"[I love] not having to be anyone's mum but Bentley's," she joked. "These guys [I've met and dated] are cool, and then three months into it, I'm like, 'You are a child and I'm your mother. You're grounded. Leave me alone'. The only mum I want to be is Bentley's mum."
Bookout recently completed her final season on Teen Mom, which ran for three years on MTV.
