It’s official: While sporting a tuxedo and holding a wedding ring, soaked from head to toe in the shower, Bear Brown has announced that he and Raiven Adams have split, laying their long-awaited “Alaskan Bush People” marriage to rest once and for all.
“Semper Fidelis,” Bear begins his Thursday post to Instagram. For those playing the home game, this means “always faithful” in Latin and is the motto of the US Marine Corps.
The full (implied) meaning of this aside, “Alaskan Bush People” star Bear Brown is finally stating once and for all: He and Raiven Adams, the mother of his baby boy, have officially parted ways.
Sharing a lengthy “update” with followers on his private account, Bear Brown, the self-professed “King of Extreme” goes to great lengths to get his point across. Looking extremely somber, Bear includes a photo of himself wearing a tuxedo and holding his wedding ring for Raiven whilst soaking wet in his running shower.
“Hey! I wanted to give an official update,” Bear begins. “Raiven and I have gone our separate ways, we split up over a month ago, I would like to also address some rumors I heard.”

“I was never unfaithful to Raiven, I have always loved her and only her… She simply felt I was not what she’s looking for,” the “Alaskan Bush People” star continues in his Thursday post.
“It has definitely hurt my heart and that along with everything else I’m going through has not been easy… But no matter what, I wish Raiven only happiness and hope she finds what she is looking for in life.”
Bear Brown ends his post by asking that fans “Please be respectful to her! Everybody should treat others how they would want to be treated. God bless!”

Rumors of infidelity began to swirl for the “Alaskan Bush People” star after he began posting photos of himself and other women on Instagram. In addition, he and Raiven Adams have not been seen or photographed together in several months. No “confirmation” of infidelity exists, however.
Raiven Adams Tells Her Side of Split
Instead, Raiven states to her own private Instagram that she is “looking for a healthy positive relationship.”
“Before drama occurs I previously didn’t want to make a statement or discuss it online. But bear wants to post online,” Adams says of her side. “I am looking for a healthy positive relationship if I am to have one at all and a happy life for our son.”
“As a couple we are unable to provide that for him so it is in rivers best interest we are separated,” she continues of their baby boy, River. “This will not happen again… As I have closed this chapter in my life and have put my focus to providing a happy home.”
With official statements now online from both parties, it looks as if “Alaskan Bush People” fans can finally put rumors of a Season 13 wedding to rest.
