Sister Wives’ Kody Brown drops $1.8M on new Arizona life as family crumbles
SISTER Wives patriarch Kody Brown dropped a whopping $1.8 million on his new Arizona life, but the pricey move has had consequences, as the family has experienced financial and personal issues.
Kody, 52, moved his four wives, Meri, 49, Janelle, 50, Christine, 48, and Robyn, 41, who he shares 18 children with, to Flagstaff, Arizona from Las Vegas, Nevada in 2018.
The family had trouble selling their four Sin City homes, which were located in a cul-de-sac.
The abodes eventually sold for thousands under their asking price.
In their Deed of Trust exclusively obtained by The Sun, Kody and Robyn put a down payment of $667,500 for their $890,000 home in August 2019.
They are to pay regular periodic payments up until 2049.
Kody also purchased a home with Christine, as they put down $390,000 for their $520,000 house, court papers reveal.
They have until 2048 for their mortgage.
Kody also dropped $820,000 on land called Coyote Pass to be split into four parcels to eventually build on.
But Kody’s total is over $1.8 million, as Meri rents her home for $4,500 a month, while Janelle pays $2,900 in rent.
The family has been open about their financial struggles.
Christine said on Sister Wives: “Financially, we’re drowning.”
Kody added: “Basically we’re paying four, no five mortgages with the Coyote Pass property.”
Kody and Robyn even applied for a home equity line of credit in the amount of $150,000 on March 20, 2020 for their home, which was approved, The Sun previously reported.
Then in June, Christine revealed she needs $50,000 for a down payment on her daughter’s surgery.
Though Christine was unable to disclose which daughter is undergoing surgery, it is likely her daughter Ysabel, who suffers from scoliosis.
She thanked her followers for purchasing her clothing items through LuLaRoe and encouraged them to continue, as she had raised $25,000 so far.
The wives have been helping out the family financially.
Christine has been holding multiple Facebook live sales a day.
She also launched a legal business called CBrown Quest, LLC.
As for Meri, she also sells LuLaRoe clothing.
She is also owner of successful bed and breakfast Lizzie’s Heritage Inn in Utah.
Janelle owns health care company Strive by Janelle and recently offered her health coach services to followers.
Janelle also launched a Cameo page, where she charges $30 for personalized video messages.
Robyn has been the only wife not financially contributing, as her jewelry business, My Sisterwife’s Closet, has been inactive since last year.
The family has also been experiencing personal issues while living in Flagstaff.
Kody pitched an idea to build one massive home in Flagstaff for his entire family.
Though Meri, Janelle and Robyn were open to the idea, Christine was adamantly against it.
She admitted on the show that Kody resented her for being against his plan.
Kody threatened to dissolve his marriage to Robyn because she wanted to rent over purchasing a home.
Robyn feared buying a home would stall the family financially from building on Coyote Pass.
In the end, Kody admitted he “bullied” Robyn into buying a home for their five children.
What is the net worth of the Sister Wives cast?
THE cast of TLC's Sister Wives reportedly makes up to $400,000 per episode.
It is rumored that the family has grossed just under $4 million since 2010, which doesn't amount to much in a family of 24.
Three of the wives of the Brown clan run their own businesses that contribute to their overall net worth.
Kody and Meri’s marital troubles appear to be worse since the move, as they haven’t posted with each other in over a year.
They also ignored their milestone 30th wedding anniversary on social media.
Fans have suspected Kody has been in coronavirus quarantine with wife Robyn, as he has not appeared in many social media postings with the other wives.
