Alaskan Bush People star, Matt Brown, shared that he was enduring “hard times” after his siblings, Rain and Bear, shut him out of their brother/sister social media tributes.
Matt Brown captioned a Mario Kart screen grab, “In hard times, when its easy to be afraid, remember, Allwase press Continue. (sic) Much love! never give up. never surrender!”
The post followed his brother and sister’s family shout-outs, marking World Sibling Day.
Rain shared a series of family photos on Instagram, tagging her ABP co-stars Bear, Noah, Gabe, Snowbird and Josh — but not Matt.
“Siblings are like rocks,” Rain wrote.
“They keep you grounded when it matters most, but when you stub your toe on them they hurt you.”
Bear also shared several snaps of his siblings — minus Matt Brown — writing, “Happy sibling day.”
Matt Brown, 37, has not been seen on the Alaskan Bush People since Season 8. The troubled reality star struggled with substance abuse issues during seasons nine and ten. He completed six months of rehab in January 2019, and has been living under the radar, in California.
Bear has been dealing with his own personal struggles. The ABP personality is prepared to fight for joint custody of his infant son from ex-girlfriend, Raiven Adams, if a DNA test proves that he’s the father. River Anthony was born on March 9, 2020, but Bear has not yet met the child. The infant was born several weeks premature, and his mother has been spending her days by his side, in the hospital.
Raiven filed a restraining order against Bear in February — accusing her ex of “erratic and abusive” behavior. She dropped her complaint three days before River’s birth.
Alaskan Bush People airs on the Discovery channel.
