Alaskan Bush People star Matt Brown revealed exactly how he started drinking again.
Now, he's focused upon his regained sobriety and living his life ... a considerable distance away from his parents.
A new report says that this is just how Matt likes it -- because he doesn't want much to do with the rest of the Browns.
According to a new report by RadarOnline, Matt Brown is miles away from the new Browntown in Washington State.
"Matt is living with his girlfriend in California right now,” an insider divulges.
And he wouldn't have it any other way.
“He has no desire to be anywhere near his parents," the source characterizes.
"And," the insider adds. "Really wants nothing to do with them."
Matt recently completed a stint in rehab.
That inpatient treatment was followed by sobriety meetings, therapy, and a sober coach.
Matt spent time in L.A. while his mother was in town.
Ami still gets multiple check-ups a year to ensure that her lung cancer has not returned.
Fortunately, the Brown family owns a Beverly Hills mansion.
Apparently, Matt isn't the only member of the Brown family who is tired of being cooped up in the wilderness.
"Rain cannot wait to turn 18," the source claims.
Rain is currently 16 years old and has been her family's de facto spokesperson since she was 14.
The insider says that she looks forward to being an adult "so she can get out of the house."
Apparently a large source of Rain's discontent is clashing with her older and only sister.
"Although she and Birdie tolerate each other," the source says. "They do not always see eye to eye on things and could not be any more different."
Sisters getting on each other's last nerve is just a fact of life, but Rain isn't alone.
"Bam Bam and Allison want nothing to do with his family," the insider says.
"The only reason that Bam Bam even was on the show," the source claims. "Is because he has to in order for them to keep the contracts."
Nothing brings a family together like a telvision contract, we guess.
"He does not like his mother and father," the insider explains. "Because of the way that they treat Allison."
And then there's Gabe and his new bride, Raquell Rose.
The two lovebirds tied the knot earlier this year, just one month before Valentine's Day.
But this same report claims that this was a shotgun wedding that Billy Brown forced them into.
(In 2019, if you can imagine!)
According to the claim, Raquell was pregnant, which is why she and Gabe were forced to the altar.
They currently live pretty close to Billy and Ami, but it sounds like there are some major tensions at play.
Families are complicated, and that is certainly true for the Browns.
When you have as many children as Billy and Ami do, you're really increasing your odds of family squabbles.
Right now, it looks like there are only two things keeping the Brown family on speaking terms.
The first is Alaskan Bush People itself and their contractual obligations.
The second is the family fortune that they've amassed through their fame.
