MERI Brown first rose to fame following the release of the TLC series Sister Wives, which follows the story of her unconventional marriage to Kody Brown.
Meri was legally married to Kody until 2014, and then the following year she was involved in a catfishing scandal that fans are still talking about to this day.
What is cat fishing?
Catfishing is a modern term used when someone sets up a fake online profile to tick people off.
Many people often impersonate someone else when they are looking for love or money. Some people even do it when they’re looking for revenge.
The term became popular in 2010 following the release of the Nev Schulman-hosted MTV series Catfish: The TV Show, which follows the journey of couples who began an online relationship but never met in person
Who “fished” Meri Brown?
In March 2015, it was revealed that Meri, 51, had been fished.
The scandal was revived after the Sister Wives star mentioned it during the show’s 16th season in December 2021.
“That catfish just put things in my head and told me how awful my family is. And especially how horrible Kody was.” Meri confessed in an older episode on InTouch.
“That was one of the reasons I didn’t want him with me. I was just angry. I’m just mad at him. I just pushed Kody away. I did. He’s not the one I should have pushed away.”
Meri had thought she was speaking to a man named Sam Cooper, but it was later revealed that she had actually been fished by a woman named Jackie Overton.
At the time, Jackie was posting Meri’s private photos, videos, and voice messages.
Is Meri Brown in a relationship now?
While Meri and Kody legally divorced in 2014, the couple had been together spiritually until November 2021.
During this time, they also welcomed one child together, daughter Mariah Brown, 26.
Since their split, Meri has kept her dating life out of the public eye and it remains unclear if she has started a new relationship.
