Looks like Alaskan Bush People stars Billy Brown and Matt Brown have finally made peace! After reports indicated that the father and son met up to discuss Matt’s future on the show, it seems like all went well. As of Monday, August 5, Radar Online is reporting that the two officially struck a deal. Despite the son’s rehab drama from the past year, a source spills that he and his dad “made up” and got to signing contracts.
“Matt is already back in California after spending a week with his family in Washington, but he really had a great trip home. He made up with his father, which is huge,” the insider told Radar. “He was able to make up with his father, and they were able to come to an agreement that would bring Matt back to the show for the season after this one.” There is one catch, though. “Billy told Matt that he must stay sober from now on, or else the deal is off,” the source said. “Of course, Matt agreed.”
The news comes not long after Billy, 66, allegedly called Matt, 36, a “liability.” On July 26, a Brown family insider told Radar that the son had been begging his parents to let him back on the show, but they weren’t so sure. “Billy has considered letting his son back on the show,” they said at the time, but his history of being in and out of rehab proved to be a major hurdle. “Ami really wants her son back in her life and, at this point, Billy doesn’t really know what to do.”
It seems like the Californian transplant must’ve finally been able to convince his parents that his sobriety is the real deal this time around. “Matt has been sober since he left Betty Ford,” a source said at the start of August. “[He] returned to Washington to make things good again. He did sit down with his father, and they did hash things out.” In addition to staying clean, though, the star will allegedly also need to discuss his addiction issues on the show. “He would need to discuss his substance abuse issues so that fans know what really happened.”
