Meri Brown Reveals How Kody And Janelle’s Strained Relationship Was Impacted By Son’s Death

Kody and Janelle Brown were already on tense terms following their break-up, but the death of their son would understandably add more stress to their plate.

But according to their former sister wife, Meri Brown, they’re both coping in their own ways.

“I’ve talked to each of them, and I think there’s good days and bad days,” she said while appearing on the “Miss Understood With Rachel Uchitel” podcast. “I don’t know how there couldn’t be.”

“There’s still times that I’ll see a picture of Garrison and I’ll be like, ‘Awww. I don’t like that this happened,’” Meri continued. “It’s really sad, you know?”

Meri Brown Talks Current Relationship with Former Sister Wives, Garrison's  Death, Kids and More

Garrison Brown, the son of Kody Brown and Janelle Brown, who together have six children, sadly passed away on March 5 at his home in Flagstaff, Arizona. His body was found by his brother Gabe, who was asked by Janelle to check on Garrison following concerning text messages he had sent to her and members of the Sister Wives production team the night before.

Recently, it was disclosed that Garrison’s cause of death was a gunshot wound, shedding light on the tragic circumstances surrounding his untimely passing.

How Kody And Janelle’s Kids Honored Their Late Brother

Though the former couple made an announcement when publicly revealing their son’s death, they’ve been quiet about the status of their co-parenting relationship since. But Janelle did reveal a sweet way some of their kids paid tribute to their late brother Garrison.

Janelle recently took to Instagram to share snapshots from a night out with Gabe and her youngest daughter, Savanah Brown. Followers quickly noticed a tattoo on Gabe’s arm that appeared to read, “to the stars.” When asked about its significance, Janelle confirmed suspicions that it was indeed a tribute to her late son, Garrison.

“Yes! Many of the kids got a tattoo with some version of that quote,” Janelle affirmed in response to a fan’s inquiry. “It was one of Garrison’s favorite movies growing up and even as an adult,” she added, hinting at the inspiration behind the ink, which reportedly stems from the film Dragonheart .

Additionally, a keen-eyed follower pointed out a similar thematic tattoo in a recent photo of Paedon Brown, the son of Kody and Christine Brown. Unlike Gabe’s quote, Paedon’s tattoo appears to depict a constellation on his forearm. The extent to which other family members might have chosen to get matching tattoos remains unclear.

The Brown family gained fame through his role on the TLC reality series Sister Wives, which aired from 2010 to 2023 spanning 18 seasons. The show documented Kody and his polygamous family, initially consisting of four wives and 18 children. However, now only one wife, Robyn, remains, with Janelle, Meri, and their other sister wife, Christine, leaving Kody in recent years.

Our thoughts are with the Brown family as they continue to process their loss.
