The marriage of Billy Brown and Ami Brown has unleashed its fair share of controversy. She was born on August 28, 1963.
Her Age is 57 years old.
Ami Brown And Billy Brown
According to Radar Online, Billy and Ami got married in Tarrant County, Texas on June 16, 1979. The odd thing is that at the time, Ami was just 15, while Billy was 26.
At the time, Texas law stipulated that a woman could get married as young as 14, provided her parents had permission. Ami’s mother gave the marriage permission, but on the condition that Ami completed high school.
As ScreenRant observes, Ami cut off all touch with her family shortly after Ami and Billy got married. Ami has never expressed remorse about her marriage, however, and still lauds it as a wonderful tale of love.
After they got married, according to People, Billy started a plumbing business in Texas, but he thought it was the wrong direction for him. They started traveling around, selling all they had in 1983 and buying boat tickets to Alaska with their first two sons.
At first, they had a rough journey from Alaska but soon fell in love with it, giving Billy material to write self-published autobiographies.
For Alaskan Bush People, a producer came across Billy’s writing and pitched the concept, dragging Billy and his family out of remoteness and into the spotlight, and the rest is history.
The couple remains together with their 7 children, their relationship’s origin story is a little questionable.
Billy Brown’s Death Cause
His son, Bear Brown, who also stars in the show, announced on Instagram that he died on Sunday after suffering a seizure. He wrote, “Our beloved patriarch Billy Brown passed away last night after suffering from a seizure,”
He added, “He was our best friend — a wonderful and loving dad, granddad, and husband and he will be dearly missed. He lived his life on his terms, off the grid, and off the land, and taught us to live like that as well. We plan to honor his legacy going forward and to continue with his dream. We ask for privacy and prayers during this painful time! God bless everyone!!!”
Saddened to hear of the passing of Billy Brown. I first met Billy when I shot @AlaskanBushPPL for @Discovery many years ago, & after working with him multiple times, I came to know him as a kind, strong and caring father, a true patriarch. My thoughts go out to the Brown Family. pic.twitter.com/fy4h4bh6z0
