She’s sharing shocking new details. Amy Roloff wrote about the events leading up to the end of her marriage with Matt Roloff in her new tell-all book, A Little Me. The Little People, Big World star reportedly claims that Matt “betrayed” her before they broke up, alleging that she even saw messages and pics sent between him and his now-girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, prior to their split.
While the TLC alum doesn’t call out Caryn by name, she alludes to Matt’s leading lady in one jaw-dropping chapter. At first, Amy, 54, addresses how she noticed that Matt, 57, spent more time at the tavern than usual and soon after, realized that Caryn was around more. “Then it dawned on me. Matt and our farm manager, who had been working for us a number of years by then, seemed to have more than just a working relationship or friendship,” she wrote, according to Radar Online.
“I saw messages, pictures, and other things that should not have been shared between people who just worked together and were still married to other people. I was devastated,” Amy added.
In the tell-all, Amy revealed that her discovery impacted her emotionally and she sometimes lashed out at her former flame on the show, instead of having a heart-to-heart with him when the cameras stopped rolling. “I cried a lot over those next several years. I didn’t have a plan, and I didn’t know what to do,” the LPBW star wrote while addressing how she coped with it. “I was scared and ashamed anything remotely like this could be happening,” she added. “Was Matt really interested in someone else right in front of me? Why would he even go there when were still married?”
Amy said she never felt more “alone, hurt and betrayed” by her ex-husband. Matt and Amy were married for almost 30 years, from 1987 to 2016. The following year, Matt went public with his current girlfriend, Caryn. Amy has also found new love with her beau, Chris Marek.
The reality star started writing her book after their divorce and it reportedly kept her occupied last year. More recently, Amy and Matt sat down for an interview and revealed that they now hang out together with their significant others — so maybe time helped heal some of those wounds.
