Matt Roloff’s Girlfriend’s Ex Bans Kids From Appearing on ‘Little People, Big World’
Don't expect the family of Matt Roloff's new woman to appear on Little People, Big World anytime soon.
The ex-husband of Caryn Chandler — the Roloff patriarch's first serious girlfriend since his divorce from ex-wife Amy Roloff in 2015 — is taking legal action against his ex to prevent their children from appearing on the TLC show.
In September 2012, Caryn's ex-husband of more than 20 years, Jacob Chandler, filed legal documents forbidding the couple's two teenage sons from appearing on Little People, Big World and stepping foot on the Roloff family's property in Hillsboro, Oregon.
While Caryn, who worked as the TLC star's assistant and a manager on his farm until at least 2011, made cameos on the hit reality show, her sons, ages 14 and 17, were not allowed to guest star.
“Mother will not take [redacted] to her employer’s property without Father’s permission,” the documents, filed in June 2013, said.
“Neither party will allow the children to be filmed for television without the consent of the other party."
To add salt to the wound, the ex-spouses are also forbidden from even mentioning Matt or anything about Roloff Farms and the TLC show in front of their kids.
“Father and Mother shall be restrained and enjoined from making any derogatory comments about each other to, or in the presence of the children, as well as in their respective places of employment,” the documents said.
“In addition, both parties shall refrain from discussing the other parent’s employment with the children, and neither parent shall do anything that might jeopardize the other party’s employment.”
At the time of Caryn's divorce, in 2013, Matt and Amy were still married. The Roloff parents separated in 2014 and finalized their divorce two years later.
The father of four confirmed his relationship with his ex-assistant in March 2017 in a cozy Instagram post showing off their day trip to the Oregon coast.
