The Brown family of “Alaskan Bush People” will be sharing their grief on the show this season after the death of Billy Brown.
Rain Brown, who is the daughter of Billy and Ami Brown, has shared a moving message. She has “dedicated” this season on the Discovery Channel show to her late father. Billy Brown died in February 2021 after suffering a fatal seizure. He was 68 years old.
Take a look at what the “Alaskan Bush People” star Rain Brown posted on Instagram.
“Wanted to give a big thank you to our wonderful crew for helping us pull this off, from @discovery to our ground crew,” Rain Brown wrote on Friday. “And a huge thank you to our lovely fans who have awaited this new season, although it’s nothing like we would have hoped, I do think it’s very beautiful.
“This new season is dedicated to our da, and the wonderful inspiration he was,” she wrote. “In this new season we face the struggles of carrying on with him in our hearts instead of by our side and work harder than ever to fulfill his family dream.
“The new season will premiere Sunday 9/19 on discovery and discovery+ I hope you will tune in and enjoy. God bless.”
“Alaskan Bush People” will take viewers into the daily life of the Brown family. The Discovery Channel show comes on for its 13th season. Obviously, all family members will be shown dealing with their grief after Billy’s death. Yet the show will also reflect what’s taking place in the daily lives of Ami Brown and the children.
‘Alaskan Bush People’ Stars Are Pushing Back Against Lawsuit
As if they don’t have enough to deal with right now, the “Alaskan Bush People” stars are pushing back against a lawsuit.
This lawsuit was filed against Billy Brown. Firstly, Dr. Robert Maughon of Tennessee is seeking $500,00 from the courts over investments into Alaskan Family publications. Secondly, the investment was done in 2009 and Maughon said Brown promised to give him 10 percent of revenue from books he published or TV appearances. This comes as part of a report from The Sun.
Thirdly, Maughon claims that Billy Brown never paid him any money.
Ami Brown has asked that the case be dismissed. The family claims that the federal court lacks jurisdiction in this case. Maughon said he’s intent on seeing the case reach trial.
Finally, there has been no final call from the judge about these requests. As in everything involving a television show, the words “stay tuned” definitely apply to this ongoing situation. It is not over yet.
