The famous family previously explored the idea of a home in Colorado and they may also still have their rental property in Los Angeles, but the brood currently resides in Tonasket, Washington. Some fans even believe the Browns never lived in Alaska at all while the show was filming.
Aside from her family woes, the Discovery Channel star has been through a difficult few years after she was diagnosed with lung cancer back in 2017. Fortunately, Ami is currently in remission living in the Pacific Northwest with Billy and their brood.
THE Alaskan Bush People family moved from their home and relocated to California after Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer. As the family relocated, they left behind their old life in Alaska – and with it, their home.
Browntown was a series of homes the family built themselves using materials from the Alaskan bush. The Browns left Alaska due to a sudden cancer diagnosis with Ami, the matriarch of the family . “It was very scary,” Ami says of her cancer, “but I never gave up hope.”
Family strain contributed to Matt Brown leaving Alaskan Bush People. Shortly after moving into Juneau with his folks, Matt Brown started to mingle with the townspeople, many of whom happened to be avid drinkers. Brown chose to follow suit, but quickly lost control over his habit.
The Browns possibly didn’t build their Browntown cabin. “They are portraying themselves as something that they are not,” the source wrote. “They do not live in the bush – they only go there to film scenes. They have been living in Hoonah with the Discovery crew. Locals are building their cabin.”
Amber Branson, 44, was the niece of family matriarch Ami Brown .
BILLY Brown from Alaskan Bush People has suffered from respiratory problems , kidney issues, and seizures in the past. Billy’s lawyer used his medical issues as grounds to keep him out of jail after he was charged with second-degree unsworn falsification. Here’s more on the head of the reality family’s medical past.
Matt has no plans to return to Alaskan Bush People and is quite content living his quiet life in California. The family has always stood behind him; even though he is not on the show anymore, they always want him to make wise life decisions.
As of September 2020, they are back together , with Bear writing on Instagram: “I asked Raiven if she would be my girlfriend, and she said yes!” Scroll through the gallery below to find out which Alaskan Bush People couples are still together !
