Will Sullen Star Split from Robyn?

For a very good, understandable and simply tragic reason, Kody Brown is going through it at the moment.

In early March, the Sister Wives patriarch lost son Garrison to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The reality star, who was only 26 years old at the time, had been estranged from his famous father for about two years… ever since Kody laid down some very strict guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic, forbidding anyone in his family from interacting with anyone outside the family.

From what we’ve been able to gather, Kody and Garrison were not speaking at the time the latter committed suicide.

Kody has said nothing on his own in the wake of Garrison’s passing, although a previous report alleged he made things awkward at Garrison’s funeral.

“Kody is not okay at all. He’s retreated entirely,” a source recently told The Sun, adding of Kody’s mental state these days:

“He gets into dark places when he gets upset, so he’s just in a very dark place right now.”

We can’t verify this report and we don’t know exactly what dark places refers to or means — but one can’t blame Kody for falling into such a funk, can one?

Long before Garrison took his own life, Kody had said he was struggling; in that case, because spouses Christine, Meri and Janelle had all left him at various points in the recent past.

In November 2021, Christine finally built up the courage to leave Kody.

Then, in December 2022, Janelle confirmed that she and Kody had separated as well.

Finally, in January 2023, Meri confirmed her split from Kody after 32 years of marriage, either as spiritual husband and wife or legal husband and wife.

This leaves Kody in a legal marriage with Robyn Brown, but The Sun also hints at trouble on this romantic horizon.

Amid Kody’s “depression,” a word use by the aforementioned insider, the TLC personality is “causing problems” in his marriage to Robyn.

“His mental state is affecting his marriage and it’s actually causing problems in his relationship,” the source explained.

“He sort of put up this wall and is internalizing his feelings. He’s focused more on himself and moving on.”

For her part, Robyn hasn’t said anything about Garrison’s death.

She admitted last year that she was in a different state of mourning due to the end of her plural family.

“Kody and I, we’re getting through this and figuring this out, but it does feel like there was a death,” Robyn told People Magazine in December of her three sister wives all walking away.

“We’re both going through a death separately.”

Now, of course, they are going through an actual death.

Will it result in the dissolution of this union?

“I don’t think they will ever divorce unless he continues what he is doing and pushes her out,” the Sun source concluded a few days ago.

“Kody just retreats and when he gets upset, he blames her (for his problems). So right now he’s doing that with her.”

Back on March 5, Kody uttered his only words about Garrison, joining Janelle to say the following:

“Kody and I are deeply saddened to announce the loss of our beautiful boy Robert Garrison Brown. He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him,” they wrote back then.

“His loss will leave such a big hole in our lives that it takes our breath away.

“We ask that you please respect our privacy and join us in honoring his memory.”
