ALASKAN Bush People’s Bear Brown may be fighting his woes.
But his brother Matt, who formerly starred in the show, is living a quiet life away from the media spotlight.
The 37-year-old completed six months of combined inpatient and outpatient rehab in January 2019, and has spoken openly of his new-found sobriety on his Instagram.
Fans have not seen Matt on Alaskan Bush People since season 8, as the Discovery star was dealing with his substance abuse issues while the show filmed its ninth and tenth seasons.
However, he has started his own You Tube Channel, which only features a handful of videos so far.
His Instagram suggests a tranquil lifestyle, featuring posts rich in nature, images of churches and the bible.
The eldest sibling hasn’t commented on the recent woes of his brother Bear, despite being imminently set to be an uncle.
Bear confessed this week that his “heart is broken”, after his pregnant girlfriend filed a restraining order against him.
The 31-year-old Discovery Channel star shared a melancholy post to his Instagram on Thursday, which read, “My heart is broke, may I have some glue?”
The reality star had previously insisted “everything is awesome” despite fighting his ex girlfriend’s abuse allegations.
The Sun US exclusively revealed pregnant Raiven Adams filed a restraining order and accused the reality star of “abusive, erratic” behavior, gun threats and cocaine use.
Earlier this week, Bear seemed in higher spirits as he shared photographs on Instagram and told fans: “Everything is awesome when you’re part of a team.”
Later, he wore a red, leather jacket and flashed a steely pose in a selfie, writing alongside it: “Me.”
But many fans commented that they noticed a “sadness” behind his eyes, amid his ongoing drama with his ex.
Bear is expecting a son with his ex in April, which he revealed previously on Instagram.
The Sun exclusively reported the reality star’s pregnant ex filed a restraining order against him, as new court documents were released.
According to the Alaskan court papers first obtained by The Blast, Bear started exhibiting “erratic” and “abusive” behavior soon after the couple began dating.
Raiven, 23, wrote the ABP star began “yelling, slamming things, preventing me from leaving rooms.”
She said he told her his behavior was caused by “cocaine.” Bear has fired back that he doesn’t do drugs.
The mom-to-be claimed he began threatening to “kick her out” and started to “withhold food and money” when she expressed concerns about his alleged drug abuse.
In another disturbing claim, she said he would use a gun as “intimidation,” and told her “gun laws didn’t apply to him.”
The TV star also claimed he made threats of retaliation if she were to ever go public with the information.
This comes a week after Raiven’s mother claimed on social media that her daughter had suffered “abuse” at his hands.
Alongside a sonogram of her “beautiful grandson,” Raiven’s mother, Kassy Michelle, shared the unborn baby boy is currently less than 3 pounds and “trying to make an entrance 10 weeks early.”
She added: “Please pray for Raiven and baby. Stress can cause complications in pregnancy which is why she’s in preterm labor.”
The Discovery reality series follows the Brown family as they supposedly build lives together off the grid in Alaska – before moving to Washington state in the most recent season.
