Sister Wives: Kody Brown’s Rules Divided His Family
Sister Wives spoilers reveal that, according to Insider, the Brown family patriarch recently gave an update on his relationships with his two sons — and it wasn’t positive. Speaking to “Sister Wives: One on One host Sukanya Krishnan, Kody explained that he was “estranged” from his and Janelle’s sons.
Fans of the TLC show will recall that in seasons 16 and 17, viewers witnessed, firsthand, how Kody’s stringent cOVID-19 protocols strained his relationships to the breaking point. Specifically, his relationships with sons from his second wife Janelle — Gabriel Brown, 21, and Garrison Brown, 24, took a lot of damage, (via PEOPLE).
“Now with those two boys, I’m estranged from them. I can’t even have conversations with them anymore,” the TLC personality told Krishnan.
Kody Brown’s Over-the-Top Set of COVID-19 Rules
The two brothers, Gabriel and Garrison, lived with Janelle during the coronavirus pandemic. Once the lockdown lifted, the pair continued to go outside the home for work and school and to see their girlfriends. As a result of their decisions, Jannelle’s house was the first that Kody stopped showing up at during the pandemic, reportedly at her request. Janelle indicated that that situation put a strain on her marriage to Kody.
Fans may recall that the father of 18 created a strict set of rules for the family while the pandemic raged. These rules included a requirement that mail be disinfected before being brought inside. He also required that anyone coming indoors from being out and about change their clothes.
The Last Time Gabriel Brown Talked to his Dad
“If one of my little children were to die because somebody had to get his pencil wet, that made me so mad,” Kody told the One on One host. He said that if one of his children died because another brought COVID into his home, he would find it difficult to “forgive” whoever did it.
However, Kody did eventually contract the virus from his daughter Aurora Brown, and when he did, he reached out to his son Gabriel to discuss his symptoms, forgetting that it was Gabriel’s birthday.
During Season 17, Gabriel recalled sort of testing his father, saying, “I shouldn’t have done this, but I did anyway. I didn’t remind him that it was my birthday because I wanted to see if he remembered, and he didn’t.”
He said his father called back a few hours later to try and smooth over his mistake, adding through tears, “That’s the last time I ever talked to my dad.”
