Little People, Big World star Matt Roloff isn’t helping the family feud, especially after calling his older children “monsters” to a friend.
Matt Roloff from Little People, Big World is coming under fire for recent comments about his adult children. The patriarch is no longer holding back his opinions after the most recent season has shown the Roloff family in turmoil. Matt is making sure to do what is best for him financially, even if it means alienating himself from his children.
The 61-year-old is opening up about the relationship with his older children, in particular his twin boys, Jeremy and Zach Roloff, sharing that he has created “a bunch of little monsters.” Little People, Big World followers were stunned that Matt was being so outspoken, since he recently shared his hopes for reconciliation in the not-too-distant future. The conversation occurred when Matt spoke to his longtime friend, Bob. Matt opened up and said that he had definitely made mistakes along the way, but felt his biggest misstep was thinking that “these kids would figure out how to keep the farm in the family.”
Matt Roloff Thought His Children Would Work Together
Matt has always claimed that his children would inherit Roloff Farms, but demands and money became a more significant issue than he ever expected to contend with. The Little People, Big World star told his friend that a lot of people have alleged that he told his boys they would inherit. However, Matt set the record straight by explaining he only ever said he hoped the family could keep the farm as a “legacy.” Matt has always hoped his two sons would learn to work together, noting he can’t keep an “expectation that no longer is valid.”
Both Jeremy and Zach have been trying to come to terms with the loss of a dream. Little People, Big World fans watched as Zach made an offer on the farm only to be told he and his wife, Tori Roloff, were not skilled enough. Zach later described the conversation as extremely odd, especially after his dad price-gauged him. A few years back, Jeremy had put an offer in on Roloff Farms, but was rejected. Zach and Tori chose to move an hour away to Battleground, WA, to start a new chapter. Jeremy and his wife, Audrey Roloff, have also decided to buy their own farm, which happens to be only eight minutes from his childhood home.
The current season of Little People, Big World is showing just how dysfunctional the entire Roloff Family has become. Zach and Tori welcomed their third child into the family but refused to let Matt’s partner, Caryn Chandler, meet him. Tori has made it clear that the grandparents would not be seeing the children if they were not on good terms. While Matt may be taking small steps toward reconciliation, he still has his head in the sand as he tries to move forward with his own plans.
