According to a recent news report, the estate of the late Alaskan Bush People star is being sued for $500,000. On Tuesday (May 4), The Sun reported that a Tennessee doctor is suing Billy Brown’s estate. The doctor claims that the patriarch did not pay him the profits he said he was entitled to. These profits were the result of book sales and the popular show. The patriarch is Billy. He died in February 2021 at the age of 68. The cause of death was a seizure.
The doctor suing Billy Brown’s estate is Robert Maughon. He reportedly filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the Browns’ Alaskan Wilderness Family Productions on April 27. Maughon claims in the lawsuit that he and Brown signed a contract on Jan. 6, 2009.
That contract included a $20,000 investment by the doctor. It also allegedly included an agreement that the Alaskan Bush People star would give Maughon 10 percent of the profits. In addition, the contract was set for 10 years from that January 2009 date.
Another contract between Billy Brown and Maughon would be signed on January 25, 2009. As part of this contract, the doctor invested an additional $10,000. This contract was to be for a “lifetime.”
Tennessee physician Robert Maughon wants $500,000 from the estate of Alaskan Bush People star Billy. In addition, he wants the case to go to trial. Maughon also claimed that Billy Brown earned $500,000 for each episode of Alaskan Bush People during its final season.
The doctor also provided contracts to the court. According to The Sun, these appear to have Billy Brown’s signature. They also appear to have been notarized.Robert Maughon has also filed a claim against the estate of the late “Alaskan Bush People” star.
Since Billy Brown’s death, it is his wife Ami Brown who has been put in charge of his estate. Ami Brown is 57 years old. According to The Sun, Ami Brown said that Billy did not leave a will. She also stated that his estate is valued at $439,000. This amount reportedly included $415,000 worth of property he owned. There are four pieces of land included in the estate. However, $27,000 in medical expenses lowers the reported value of the estate to $417,000.
