The last season of Little People, Big World showed Matt and Amy at serious odds when it came to their living situation — and we saw Amy get emotional about their divorce, too. We know now that Amy chose to sell her half of Roloff Farms to Matt, and she’s currently looking for a new home and planning a wedding to fiance Chris Marek. But she also published her memoir, A Little Me, that gave fans even more insight into her life as a little person and a reality TV star.
Amy’s memoir spared no details when it came to her relationship with Matt, too. And she included a few accusations that rubbed fans the wrong way. As for what her four children thought of the book, we’re not sure — though it seems Jacob Roloff, who’s known as the black sheep of the family, is the one now promoting the memoir.
Amy Roloff includes a few scathing accusations in her recent memoir
Amy Roloff has spoken candidly on LPBW regarding where she and Matt stand now. And she’s also left clues that she doesn’t get along with Matt’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler. But fans learned way more through A Little Me, as Amy took the opportunity to tell all about Matt’s alleged controlling behavior and cheating scandal.
“I saw messages, pictures, and other things that should not have been shared between people who just worked together and were still married to other people. I was devastated,” Radar Online reports Amy wrote.
As for the controlling behavior, Amy also added, “It would be best if everyone in the family went through Matt about everything, and he would communicate with the production staff on our behalf and take care of everything. … Matt would get upset if, after filming and off camera, I’d be talking to the producers.”
None of the Roloff kids seemed to promote the book
Amy’s far from the first Roloff to write a book. We can’t forget that Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have their memoir, A Love Letter Life, and Jacob has several books of his own, too. Amy has promoted her kids’ books in the past, and overall, the Roloffs seem quite supportive of each other. But it seems Amy’s kids haven’t done much promoting for A Little Me since its release, Radar Online reports.
As for why the Roloff kids have remained mum on Amy’s book, it may be because they feel conflicted about her scathing claims against Matt. Matt’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, is the one Amy wrote about in the book — and she appears to have a healthy relationship with all of the Roloff kids. Not only that, but Amy’s also mentioned that her children were resistant to her and Matt getting divorced in the first place.
Jacob finally included the book in his Instagram Story
After hearing so little about A Little Me from the other Roloffs despite Amy’s constant promotion on her own Instagram, it seems she’s getting some support from Jacob. Recently, Jacob took to his Instagram Story to add a photo of Amy holding her book. “Signed copies of my moms book available at the swipe up link!!!” Jacob captioned the post.
We know Jacob seems to have a closer relationship with Amy than he does with Matt. And there were even rumors that after his parents’ divorce, Jacob seemed to side more with Amy and feuded with his father. For this reason, it shouldn’t be too surprising that Jacob is promoting a book that may contain some scathing claims against Matt — but more recently, it also seems like Jacob has been making trips to Roloff Farms and spending more time with Matt than ever before.
Whatever the family dynamic is amongst the Roloffs, we’re happy to see Amy’s getting some support for her book from one of her kids!
