Why ‘Little People Big World’ Stars Jacob Roloff and Audrey Roloff Allegedly Can’t Stand Each Other
There are certainly ups and downs to growing up on TV, and the Roloff family from Little People, Big World are well-aware of the highs and lows. It all began with Matt and Amy Roloff, two little people who were married when the show began and have since divorced. We also got to know their four kids: Zach, who also has dwarfism, his twin of average height Jeremy, Molly, and Jacob. Of course, with every family, there’s the black sheep — and that always appeared to be Jacob.
From family estrangement to totally differing beliefs, Jacob has seemingly never quite fit with the rest of the Roloffs, and he even chose to leave the show behind. Not only that, but it’s apparent to fans that he and his sister-in-law, Audrey, don’t like each other either.
Audrey and Jacob have never seen eye-to-eye regarding religion
It’s no secret that the Roloffs are a religious bunch. While Amy has mentioned their strong faith in the past, one of the most outspoken regarding Christianity is certainly Jeremy. He and his wife, Audrey, have spoken in the past about their covenant marriage and deep relationship with God, and everything they do seems to be driven by their love for their religious pathway.
Jacob, on the other hand, has stated before that he’s agnostic, Radar Online reports. And that doesn’t appear to sit well with Audrey. The publication notes after family members were congratulating Jacob on his engagement Isabel Rock Garreton in the beginning of 2018, Audrey posted something on Instagram that was assumed to be a dig at Jacob. She posted a photo of her and Jeremy with a caption regarding how wrong it was to “dabble with sexual intimacy” before marriage. “Their honestly may sting, but it could also be what prevents some deep wounds,” she cryptically added.
Jacob unfollowed Audrey on Instagram
Around the same time as Audrey’s cryptic post and Jacob’s engagement, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that Jacob also unfollowed Audrey on Instagram. Radar Online reports Jacob finally mended the rifts between his parents and siblings and began following them on social media — but Audrey was still not in the picture.
Not only that, but Audrey and Jeremy have a baby girl, Ember — and Jacob seemingly never acknowledges his niece. He does seem quite close to Zach’s son, Jackson, however. He frequently posts photos of him and Jackson together, whereas his photos with Ember are rare at best. We’re assuming this has to do with the bad blood he has with Audrey, though fans may not know for sure.
Audrey has seemingly tried to make amends — but does Jacob accept?

My word for 2019. ABIDE. If you know me, or anything about 8’s (“The challenger”) on the Enneagram, you’ll know that doing things half way is not my spiritual gift When I set my mind on something, I’m determined and resilient. I think everything is urgent, so I’ve become a professional multi-tasker and a workaholic I’m a go-getter with a whole lot of passion and a heck of a lot of perseverance, but throughout my life, the Lord is constantly teaching me the importance of rest, slowing down, and creating margin. I need to reminded through a mega phone every day that God cares more about what he’s doing in me than what he’s doing through me. As I was journaling and praying about what my word for 2019 should be, I kept circling back to three words. Testify, present, and abide. This year I want to be a testimony to the living God in all I do and say. This year, I want to focus more on being present than being productive. And this year, I want to be more concerned with abiding than accomplishing. i want to spend more time in the word of God that the world of Instagram. I was reading 1 John this morning and praying for clarity on which word to claim for this year and the word abide kept coming up over and over. Then it hit me. A whisper from the Lord. “Audrey… you can’t testify well, and you won’t be fully present, if you’re not abiding in me.” Then I remembered the scripture from John 15:4-5, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me….Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” So my word for 2019 is ABIDE. As Winne The Pooh says in the movie Christopher Robin, “They say nothing is impossible, but I don’t think that’s true, cause I do nothing alll the time.” Maybe you’re like me and need to be reminded to do nothing, more than you need to be reminded that nothing is impossible Maybe you need to be reminded to slow down, be still, embrace silence. Maybe you need to be reminded that if you abide in Him, he will abide in you. #alwaysmore #abidemore
More recently, it seems Audrey may actually be attempting to squash whatever feud there may have been with Jacob. In Touch Weekly notes in the summer of 2018, Audrey posted photos of Jacob and Isabel to her Instagram stories while they were all in Michigan together. She captioned one of her photos with “Ice cream walks,” and it depicted the three of them walking and eating ice cream together. And while Jacob seemingly still does not follow Audrey on Instagram, fans have also noticed that Audrey went on to Jacob’s Instagram and “liked” many of Jacob’s uploaded posts.
Perhaps there was no real feud between them after all and fans were just looking too far into their social media activity and differing beliefs. Or, maybe there was bad blood and Audrey is still attempting to mend fences. Jeremy and Audrey as well as Jacob have chosen to no longer take part in Little People, Big World, so we may never get answers.
