The family at the center of "Alaskan Bush People" has experienced its fair share of rifts, especially where it comes to Matt Brown's relationship with his father, Billy. A source alleged that the two fell out after a "nasty brawl" about Matt's addiction issues and sobriety, causing Matt to quit the show.
Despite not returning to the show and reportedly feuding with his family, Matt Brown seems to be living his best life these days, and sticking to his sobriety, having hit the six-month mark in January 2019. His Instagram is filled with posts of him living a laid-back life in California and enjoying nature.
While fans have missed Matt on the show, it seems like he's much better off these days and avoiding drama. For example, his brother Bear Brown was embroiled in a messy custody battle with his ex-girlfriend Raiven Adams, who filed for primary custody of their baby River, born in March 2020.
