They’re on their own. Alaskan Bush People stars Billy and Ami Brown are not quite empty nesters, but many of their kids have flown the coop, so to speak. Billy, 66, and wife Ami, 55, are living in a rental home in Loomis, Washington, according to a production insider who spoke with Radar Online — and only a few of their kids are still with them. “Billy and Ami are starting to realize that it is their own fault that their family is so divided,” the source said.

The insider continued, “Billy put his desire for fame before his family when they were living in Alaska and it has driven a wedge in between them. It’s so sad, but it is his own doing.” They added that the parents’ relationship with their children “could not be any worse.”

Only teenage daughter Rain Brown and sister Birdie are still living at home, the outlet reported. “Rain cannot wait to turn 18 so she can get out of the house,” the source told Radar. She’s currently just 16. As for her relationship with Birdie, who is 24, they “tolerate each other,” the insider noted. “They do not always see eye to eye on things and could not be any more different.”

The outlet reported that Matt Brown is living with his girlfriend in California, and Noah Brown and his wife, Rhain, live in Colorado. They recently welcomed a son, Elijah. They reside in a $220K Colorado cottage gifted to them by Billy, Radar Online reported on March 21.

Meanwhile, Gabe Brown and his wife, Raquell Rose Pantilla, live in an apartment near his parents’ home in Loomis. The outlet didn’t note the specific location of Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown and his love, Allison Kagan, but the insider dished, “Bam Bam and Allison want nothing to do with his family. The only reason that Bam Bam even was on the show is because he has to in order for them to keep the contracts. He does not like his mother and father because of the way that they treat Allison.” Eek. It doesn’t sound like this is a family that’s set to have a big, happy reunion anytime soon.
