The Untold Truth Of The Parents On Alaskan Bush People

The Untold Truth Of The Parents On Alaskan Bush People

For seven seasons, Discovery Channel’s Alaskan
Bush People has captivated viewers. While Billy and Ami Brown claim to have raised
their seven children by living off the land, soaring show ratings have brought heightened
scrutiny over the family’s so-called “bush living.” We’re going off the grid to uncover the untold
truth of Billy and Ami Brown. Billy’s wealthy past According to Capital City Weekly, Billy Bryan
Brown led a privileged life in North Richland Hills, Texas, receiving lavish gifts including
“a new ski boat” at 14, “a new Camaro” at 15, and “the family Cessna 172 at 16. But everything changed in 1969, when at the
age of 16, he lost his mother, father, and only sister in a plane crash. According to Billy’s two memoirs, One Wave
at a Time, and The Lost Years, he became a ward of the state, and was duped out of any
inheritance by scheming judges and lawyers. Broke and homeless, he, quote, “criss-crossed
America over the next 10 plus years,” eventually ending up with Ami and their two young sons
in Alaska. Ami’s estranged family According to Juneau Empire, after 37 years
of estrangement, Ami’s mother, Earlene Branson attempted to surprise her daughter with a
visit, “[making] the 3,500 mile trip without confirmation from the Browns” only to find
out they were vacationing in Malibu at the time. The 83-year-old Branson said of her daughter, “I want to hug her neck and see my grandchildren. I just want to see her before I die.” Ami accused her relatives of exploitation,
and said that her father’s alcoholism tore their family apart, saying, “Watching these things as a child, you learn
from it. That is the reason why I don’t let them know
where, physically, I am.” Ami’s alienated kinfolk have accused Billy
of being extremely controlling, and effectively brainwashing Ami against them. Billy’s “secret kid” One of the big plot points in season 5 was
Billy being reunited with a supposed “long lost daughter”, Twila Byars, from a previous
marriage. Except according to Channel Guide Magazine,
it was quickly revealed that not only had the family known about Twila for quite some
time, there’s also evidence on social media that Twila and the Browns have actually been
in contact over the years. Defrauding the state of Alaska In January 2016, Billy and second oldest son,
Joshua, plead guilty to falsifying information for the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend, or
PFD, according to Juneau Empire. The PFD is “An annual dividend that is paid
to Alaska residents from investment earnings of mineral royalties.” To qualify, you have to have lived in Alaska
for one entire year, and plan to be an “Alaska resident indefinitely.” It was revealed that Billy and Joshua “previously
signed written statements admitting they left the state in October 2009 and didn’t return
until August 2012,” but continued to collect PFD funds through that time. In total, the family swindled the state out
of $20,938 in PFD money, and the ordeal proved that the Browns have likely never lived entirely
off the land. The cabin fire Billy has given three different accounts of
how the family lost their original bush cabin. According to The Discovery Channel’s website,
“the cabin where they lived for years was seized and burned to the ground for being
in the wrong location on public land.” But according to Radar Online, Billy wrote
in his memoir that the fire was accidental. And in yet another variation of the story,
when talking about the fire on the show, Billy claimed, “My cabin burned and I wasn’t home… That’s all I can say.” Something’s not adding up. Ami’s battle with cancer As of 2017, the Brown family is in the midst
of Ami’s ongoing fight with lung cancer. As chronicled on the show, her treatment has
brought the family out of the bush, to Colorado, so that she can receive the best care possible. In an exclusive August 2017 interview with
People, Billy revealed the doctor’s grim diagnosis, “It’s cancer. And there’s no primary but we’re gonna call
it lung cancer.” “At least 3B. It’s in both lungs, in the middle and sides
of the lungs.” Ami said the reason she wanted to keep doing
the show was to help people who may be going through a similar battle. She said, “I realized early into this that it’s very
easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my
last days. But I have the will to fight.” The diagnosis has affected even the youngest
Brown, daughter Rain, who opened up on Instagram in October 2017, about her own depression,
as well as saying of her mother, “I just wish I could change it somehow. I’m very scared for her.” Though they may have a dubious backstory,
it’s undeniable that the couple loves their children dearly, and are now dealing with
a devastating situation. We’re hoping the best for Ami, so this lovable
wilderness family can continue their adventures. Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  9. What I'm wondering do any of them have a high school diploma or something close to the equivalent senor chepe

  10. Billy is nothing but a fraud plan and simply he takes advantage of his kids for his lazyness and shortcoming and have them do all the hard work just by looking at the guys face is dead give away that he is a conartist

  11. everyone is so quick to shout out that the show is fake, etc. don’t ever assume you know anything because you don’t. if someone is a fan of the show and you tell them it’s fake, what good is that going to do? they are still going to watch it. so basically you are just wasting everyone’s time including yours. maybe its fake maybe it isn’t, no one gives a shit. you could tell me that gabe fucks chickens and i would still watch.

  12. I applaud those who are mature and are determined to leave the nest The Nest. I'm all about education sounds like you might not have that much though. I love the show though peace out

  13. Lung cancer at stage 4 as they stated and now all of a sudden it is completely gone. Both my parents had lung cancer and it wasn't stage 4 both went through treatment but still passed away. I would really like to know what type of treatment can take stage 4 lung cancer to cancer free in just a little over a year. I am sure there are others out there and would love to know too.

  14. , what I want to see from Alaskan Bush People family is I want to see them market themselves they should have a line of fishing poles, fishing rods they should have a whole line of camping gear ok see ya

  15. This family is terribly fake, they have a crazy home they live in worth 500k Lake side in California. They have expensive truck and cars. It's all on social media, like instagram, discovery made them and will ruin them.

  16. These guys are so fake you're not the Laskin bush people no more your Colorado residents so forget the Laskin Bush crap I bet you'll find it hard trying to steal from Colorado like you did in alaska you really give Alaska bad name

  17. 4:09 Thin lips, large nose, deep set eyes, sloping back forehead, square jaw and wide spread eyes. ALL HUMAN MALE TRAITS. This "little girl" is more of a man than it's daddy.

  18. Any show is made for intertanment people try to read to much into shit It takes us away from our own fucked up lives for about an hour I like the show don't care what they do when there not filming its none of my business I will prey for the mom hope she can beat the cancer

  19. Some more bullshit to figure out, are they in Colorado or Washington state? The show first said Colorado in the last season now this season they say Washington state? Wtf, make up ur mind!
    They probably did that to disclose their location to gun firing
    Locals that wanna burn them out! Sound familiar?

  20. What's really sad is that there's actually people out there that believe that b***** that they do is real they are so phony and fake I don't know how they can get away with it

  21. So what he is doing good and thats great for his family and may god bless the mom may gid bless her and keep her an may god make his face shine on her and give her healing and piece in jesus name amen.and they paid there dues to the state and done there jail time good for you Billy Brown I wish my father could have raised me that way City Life is no good

  22. As a cancer survivor, i know only to well just how MANY years it takes you just to get back to some what like your old self and i was almost stage 3 so for me, its a hard slap in the face because i can not figure out how this woman bounced back so quickly! I was constantly and i mean constantly sick and literally could not care for my ownself and our wonderful caring government even turned me down for disability so yeah I'm mad amd hurt at the same time when i saw this with her having cancer. Come on Brown family, have a heart and live and tell the truth! If this network wants a rwal a real story of survival, then they should contact me because man oh man do I have one that is based on truth and ya best believe it would get better ratings. I'm just saying.

  23. Wow on another one of your videos about the Brown's you said Ami's Mom tried to visit them and they were vacationing in Maui. In this video you said they were vacationing in Malibu. Who's lying now?? Here's the link to your other video just in case you forgot about your lie.

  24. I could tell they were fakes!!! They never lived a subsistence life style. No gardens, no live stock and/buildings, etc…

  25. Come on Brown Family, you can do it with Gods help. You will survive. When you start feeling that of Demon of substance abuse, that’s the time to lean on your family. You don’t have to be the Brown Family keep pressing toward the mark of the high calling of God. He will see you through.
    So hold your head up keep stepping out on faith. Everyth8ng is going to be all right.
    God Bless You All.

  26. Yep..never believed they were TRULY "on their own" I am all about family…think it is cool they care about one another!

  27. Bear…be great full yourom is doing brother died blast January'me in u.c.l.a
    Medical center
    . .than in April I lost my favorite aunt . The one who used to read us stories nwhen we were little kids.

  28. Than the following day I read on Facebook that two of my cousins had died in a fatal are accident. It was a lot of lossvforvfourv.o the. I'm glad your .on made it.

  29. I used to watch it but now I don't I figured that no one could be that ignorant about life. I also didn't buy the fact that these kids never wanted to do anything else in their lives but stay in the bush. I think when you raise kids in that kind of life style that you give them a choice if that's what they want to do. 'So again, I didn't buy the show at all.

  30. When is Gillette the bush people coming back on television that's what we way to see the bush people know you're coming back on television

  31. Nobody survives stage 4 small cell carcinoma. I should know because that's how I lost my father. Maybe you can survive large cell but not small cell. So they might not be lying about the cancer, but they're certainly lying about it's severity and type.

  32. What get me, is that they are so poor they can't get Birds front tooth fix, but all the boys have plenty of tattoos.

  33. Cannabis can cure cancer. In Alaska this is legal, buy some rick Simpson oil and take small diesel orally. The size of a 1/4 of a dry grain of rice. Her cancer will be gone in a couple of weeks. I live in Canada and it was legalized country wide because it heals. All the best, Edgar

  34. The Brown family, If that's their real name really won the lottery when they became tv personalities. I hope this show is supposed to be a comedy, because I laugh my balls off every time I watch it. I grew up in the bush, and trust me, these people are truly clueless.

  35. Hipaa laws prevent medical information to be disclosed to the public. So for anyone to say they heard medical info about person in question from a doctor is flat out Bull💩.lies.

  36. Like I Have Continually Said , I Have Watched From The Beginning I Love The Show , But More Than That !! THE FAMILY , Although Lately Pretty Disappointed In How Dad Billy , Mom Ami & The Girls Are Treating There Brothers 😢!! They Have NEVER GAVE BAM THE RESPECT HE SO DESERVES OR MATT !!! & Now They Are Running Off The Brothers Who DARE GET MARRIED !!! So Sad …Get A LIFE BIRDIE & Merry Christmas Catherine raindrop brown! ! LEAVE THE LOVING TO THE BROTHERS.. 💙❤, I Really Think They Need To Grow Up & Let Them Alone ..I Love This Family & Been Wanting The Men To Be Married & Happy For Along Time !! SO KIDS -BACK OFF YOUR NEW FAMILY MEMBERS …

  37. What difference does it make they have entertained us for years, people have put them under a microscope and for what to find dirt on entertainers, lets dig into some others like Airplane Repo- naked and afraid and several others. Everyone should be grateful they are a close family and some of the scenes they do it would be very hard for most people to even attempt. Plus its a clean show not full of vile language and violence.

  38. On a recent reveal all I saw Ami and Billy listed as Grandparents to one of the girls.( dont remember which) Is she the daughter of his daughter not on the series

  39. Who cares if it fake it just a show that thing in your hand changes channel so use it if you don't like to watch the show.Great if they have money good for them SO.

  40. you need to check into Gabriel's marriage January 2019 and Bam Bam relationship with an ex field producer of Alaskan Bush People

  41. When is the bush people coming back on TV but laughing in the bush people the grand to see y'all back on to get to see the new baby grand baby can't wait

  42. I love this family and l don’t give a shit if they live in a mansion or a outhouse,all the bullshit you nasty ass people that share any of there back life’s doesn’t matter.l love there show but more l love all of them.Come On Back Off!

  43. Nicki, this family has portrayed themselves as loyal and loving. After their cruel treatment of Matt in real time shows this to be untrue. Who wants to watch a family that treats a member like trash?

  44. This show is the prime example of fake. Everything they do on the show. There is a reason why they're not in Alaska anymore. It's because the people over there were getting fed up with their bullshit. Did anyone notice Noah wearing a smart watch last week? How about when Ami was in the hospital and some of the kids went back to Brown Town to get some of their stuff, did anyone notice Bird having a cell phone in her pocket. Bush people my ass…….

  45. You know not everybody likes all their laundry to be aired they agreed to do in the first place and didn't have to why don't you just leave them alone let him be a family

  46. Now that they allegedly live in Washinton, they are all wearing new cloths. Ordering lumber to supposedly build etc. Now they're just normal people living of the income of their show.
