Matt Brown hasn’t been a part of “Alaskan Bush People” since Season 8, Distractify noted, and he’s also been estranged from the rest of the Brown family. Matt was a victim of ongoing addiction and went to rehab in 2016. “I learned a lot about myself in those 35 days. I’ve turned my weakness into a strength,” Matt told People about his recovery. “In life, we all get lost every now and then and have to find our way back. Not everyone makes it back, and I’m happy to be one of those who did.”
Matt was still accused of raping two women during a 2018 relapse. The two women identified themselves and shared their stories with The Sun, and the scandal was obviously hugely serious for the entire Brown family. According to the outlet, the allegations were handed over to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The DA did not decide to pursue prosecution. He didn’t respond to People‘s request for comment on the situation in 2020, but he did post an Instagram claiming “there’s so many lies” in the world (via The Sun).
However, this was not the only issue that caused serious tension between Matt Brown Jr. and the Brown clan.
