Little people, big feud? Not anymore! Jacob Roloff has always been the rebel of the Roloff family, and his completely different views have definitely caused a rift between him and his family members. Jacob was estranged from them for a brief time after he quit their hit TLC reality series Little People, Big World in 2014, but now it seems as though he’s made amends, particularly with his sister-in-law, Audrey Roloff.
The new mama took to Instagram Stories on Saturday, Aug. 4 to share several clips and snaps from her vacation in Michigan — and Jacob and his fiancée, Isabel Rock, joined her! “Ice cream walks,” she captioned one shot. In fact, all four siblings were there with their significant others. So cute!
Jacob doesn’t follow Audrey — who is married to his older brother Jeremy Roloff — on Instagram, though. His choice to unfollow his sister-in-law seemed deliberate because he still follows his brother Jeremy and Zach Roloff, Zach’s wife Tori Roloff, his sister Molly Roloff, and his mom Amy Roloff. Even though Jacob’s dad —and Amy’s ex-husband — Matt Roloff is on Instagram, Jacob doesn’t follow him either.
Still, it seems like Audrey is trying to extend an olive branch to her brother-in-law, following his engagement to girlfriend Isabel Rock. Over the past few months, Audrey has reportedly liked nearly all of Jacob’s Instagram photos — and even reached out to him over the social media platform, according to Radar Online.

It’s unclear what prompted this rift between the in-laws, but it could have something to do with how different Jacob and Audrey are when it comes to their religious views. Jacob has been very outspoken about his own personal views about religion and he has acknowledged in the past that he doesn’t agree with his family’s Christian views. Meanwhile, Audrey is very outspoken about her Christian faith and uses her Instagram as a platform to promote her views.
Fans also noticed that Jacob constantly posts photos of himself with his nephew Jackson, who is Tori and Zach’s son, but he rarely shares photos of him with Jeremy and Audrey’s daughter Ember, even though Ember and Jackson are only four months apart and they all live in the same area near the family’s farm in Hillsboro, OR.
Sigh. Here’s to hoping these two have now officially made up!
