Sister Wives star Christine Brown admitted that she “never wanted the kind of marriage” she had with her now-ex-husband, Kody Brown.
Christine admitted she didn’t “need” Kody and decided to walk away from her 27-year-long marriage to Kody Brown earlier this month.
The former spouses each shared the news on their Instagram accounts, just minutes apart, confirming the split.
It was rumored that Christine told her followers in a private Facebook group that the demise of her and Kody’s marriage would play out on Sister Wives, and now it looks like those rumors were true.
