Bernie McGee Was Killed by Brother-in-Law, Widow Alleges

by at .

As previously reported, Bernie McGee died on Saturday at the age of 41.

The Seeking Sister Wife star suffered a heart attack while out for a bike ride, called his wife, Paige, in distress -- and lost his life before paramedics could arrive and save him.

McGee was the head of one of the polygamous households on this TLC series, which was a sort of Sister Wives spinoff that sought to capitalize on the popularity of one of that network's longest-running programs.

His death, as described above, was natural.

No actual foul play is suspected.

And yet... Paige took to social media shortly after confirming the tragic news and hurled enormous shade at her own brother.

Not merely shade, we should note: She flat-out accused her sibling of killing her husband.

Back in March, you see, Patrick Marble accused both Paige and Bernie of harassing and/or stalking him.

The couple was actually arrested as a result of this allegation.

According to Patrick at the time, Bernie and Page flooded his home with calls and would not stop trying to contact him at work, either.

He also claimed his girlfriend was targeted by his sister and brother-in-law.

With their court date fast approaching, Paige now says such legal issues had an awful effect on Bernie, Tweeting that "the stress of going to court this coming Wednesday with fear of 1 year in jail wore on [him]."

From there, Paige got very personal and very accusatory.

She laid into her brother and did not mince a single word in saying Patrick is to blame for what happened to Bernie.

“Patrick Marble does not know a damn thing about my husband or him passing. All he knows is what he is reading on FB. I have not spoken to him for any reason and he damn well better not come to my house!” Paige wrote this week online.

She continued:

“Patrick and my mother having us arrested for not doing a damn thing wrong did this!

"We were financially put out for having to hire lawyers, investigators and missing work for this bullsh-t."

Paige (whose mug shot from her arrest this spring is posted below) also alleged that Patrick harassed and bullied her and Bernie.

“[He] has admitted numerous times he would not stop until we were fired from the show,” she wrote.

“Well, that never happened so he continued his bullying and harassment. Bernie has been under so much stress and the stress of going to court this coming Wednesday with fear of 1 year in jail wore on Bernie.

"Bernie was so upset the day we were arrested because our sons had to watch us being taken away. Every night since then, Bernie has said over and over, the look on Johnny’s face. He just couldn’t get over that."

Paige and Bernie made their debut on Seeking Sister Wife on Season 2.

Following Bernie’s death, Patrick told TMZ that he plans to drop the stalking charges and that he spoke to his sister recently to attempt to hash things out.

But it appears as if she wasn't interested in any sort of peace accord.

“Patrick Marble… YOU KILLED MY HUSBAND AND I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL… And you better stay the HELL away from me and my family,” Paige concluded.

Yikes, huh?

May Bernie McGee rest in peace.
