In mid-April, Matt Brown uploaded a 9-minute video to his channel with the caption “the truth.” In it, Matt Brown highlights the lies he was forced to tell about Alaskan Bush People.
Because of the constant deception, it forced him to turn to drugs and alcohol, which became a problem in his life.He points out that the Brown family had modern conveniences for decades, but the show asked them to behave differently for entertainment value.
Matt Brown left the show for other pastures. He fled to the city, but admitted in March that although he had been sober for a year, he was nearly homeless, hungry and nearly broke.
The former Alaskan Bush People star also claims in his video that Billy kept the $360,000 Matt Brown made from the show.
Matt Brown’s fortunes seem to have changed and in his latest Instagram video from yesterday, he is in a healthy and positive frame of mind. Matt has continued to keep his fans up to date with his life and sobriety through video updates and social media posts. Sadly, however, his family has abandoned him as he has cried foul on family patriarch Billy Brown and the show.
