‘LPBW’: Jacob Roloff Reassures His Fans That His Marriage Is Fine After Tweet Ignites Rumors of a Split
Those who’ve watched Little People, Big World are plenty familiar with Matt and Amy Roloff. The exes were married for 30 years before calling it quits, and they brought their four kids into the spotlight, too. However, Zach Roloff is the only one of Matt and Amy’s kids to remain on the show. And Jacob Roloff made the biggest splash when he decided to leave it all behind.
Now, Jacob still has a significant following, as he’s the most outspoken Roloff and shares his adventures with his wife, Isabel Rock, to his Instagram and Twitter. But his followers worried after he posted a cryptic tweet that appeared to be about his marriage. Here’s how Jacob responded to the questions.
Jacob Roloff caused plenty of controversy in the past
While Jeremy and Molly Roloff decided to quietly take a step back from filming for reality TV, Jacob wasn’t ready to leave it all behind without telling his followers his feelings. He wrote a long Instagram post back in 2016 regarding his decision to leave. And he noted how the show seemed to make his family into “characters” as well as vowing to never return.
“All in all I appreciate people wanting me to ‘be with the family’ for a few more episodes, but the family that is filmed is not my family,” he wrote. “They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself.”
Not only that, but Jacob further discussed on his personal blog that the character the show creator’s made for him was that of a brat. “Dad: Creative; Mom: Controlling; Zach: Angry; Molly: Smart (okay that one is on point); Jeremy: Adventurous; and Myself: Brat. That’s quite a dynamic cast!” he added. “It’s too bad that people take those caricatures as Gospel.”
He married his wife, Isabel Rock, in 2019
Jacob didn’t allow his wedding to be filmed for LPBW. But he did allow Matt and Amy to share photos from his wedding day to their personal social media. Through Matt and Amy, we got to see Jacob marry the love of his life, Isabel Rock, who appears to be as artsy and poetic as he is. Together, they appear to be the perfect match.
“You are selfless. Loving you has been the most beautiful thing I’ve ever done and being loved by you the greatest gift,” Isabel wrote about Jacob on her Instagram back in January 2019. “While I love the romance of our relationship my favorite part about us is our friendship. You are my best friend.”
All of the wedding photos on Matt’s Instagram also seemed to prove there’s no bad blood between him and his son. Rumors suggested Jacob and Matt had a falling out after Matt and Amy’s divorce. But Matt posted plenty of photos of Jacob’s wedding reception that occurred on Roloff Farms. So it seems the father and son are better than ever.
Jacob reassured his fans his marriage is fine after bizarre tweet
Jacob’s no stranger to tweeting cryptic messages and posting obscure content to his Instagram. But fans worried when he posted the definition of “ignorance” to his Twitter on May 19. “Feel like pure sh*t just want her back,” he commented above the definition.
While Jacob didn’t mention his wife, his followers seemed to wonder if that’s who he was talking about.
“You ok, Jacob?” one follower commented.
“You aight?” another added.
“This is a meme fyi and is a reference in jest to some ministry developments in the Christian world,” Jacob verified. “Watch THE FAMILY on netflix.”
It looks like Jacob and Isabel are doing just fine, as they recently visited Amy and Matt before taking off in their van together. We’re glad the happy couple’s staying strong through these difficult times.
