This is a very sad day for Little People, Big World fans across the globe.

For years, we've been fans of this reality series because there's not much drama.

There hasn't been any back-stabbing or any shade hurled at any family members.

There's really just been an up close and personal look at a bunch of loved ones who really seem to get along.

But then Amy Roloff released her memoir and everything changed.

In multiple sections, the matriarch trashed her ex-husband, Matt, accusing of being a cheater and being a bully.

What did she say, exactly? And how has Matt responded? Scroll down to find out!

“When you become involved or much more than just a friend, but you become more in a relationship than just say ‘Hey, hi friend, lets go out for coffees’ type of thing, I think that can be hard on the other person as well. And I think that’s what happened in my case.”
