FANS of TLC’s Welcome to Plathville are raving about a possible split between stars Ethan and Olivia Plath ahead of the show’s return.
Olivia’s sister Sophia Meggs-Roberts previously claimed the couple broke up.
In a claim posted to social media account Realiteasquad, Sophia said that Olivia and Ethan, both 25, “are in the middle of a divorce.”
But Olivia quickly ended the discussion, denying there was any truth to her sister’s claims.
She responded to the post urging fans to be careful about what they believe and where the information came from.
Olivia said, “A friend brought this post to my attention, so I just wanted to take a moment and clarify.”
“Sophia is my younger sister, but she and I have a very distant/strained relationship due to our worldviews and reactions to the ultra-religious world we grew up in.”
She continued, “She’s actually not a reliable source when it comes to my personal information as she doesn’t know anything about my private life.”
Addressing speculation about their marriage, Olivia said: “There’s a lot of speculation out there, but if Ethan and I had something to share, we would. Thanks!”
However, she did not confirm rumors about the end of her marriage.

Still, fans continue to speculate that the couple is headed for a divorce, pointing to several possible clues.
Despite her claims that she and Ethan are still a couple, Olivia has deleted all signs of her husband from her Instagram feed.
Most recently, she shared a photo with him in September 2022.
The picture showed the pair snuggling up close and wearing matching outfits.
Olivia and her husband both wore white t-shirts and distressed jeans.
They all smiled as they posed together.
The caption read, “Just a little thank you note for Mon Amour that makes my heart smile.”
Then she added, “Tu es mon soleil,” French for “You are my sunshine.”
Before this post, she shared photos by Ethan in May 2022 when they were celebrating his birthday.
While Olivia used to share posts on occasions like Ethan’s birthday etc, she hasn’t done so in over a year.
Her last birthday post for her husband was shared in May 2022.
In May 2023 she didn’t do one.
Olivia shared a series of cryptic quotes on social media that raised some eyebrows.
In July, she published a lengthy poem entitled, “Things to Live By When the World Seems Hopeless.”
The poem He then listed several things, including: “A bouquet of flowers on a summer’s day. A bird’s chirp to wake you up in the morning. Observe the clouds and point out how they resemble animals. Learn the name of each constellation in the night sky. Meet more.” Dogs on their walks, running up to you and saying hello.
“The days when the cat chooses you and curls up on your lap. Walks in the woods after a storm. The rain that gives you Petrichor after a long, dry week. More cliffs and rivers to hit. More people to hug and get to know. The astonishment.” Waiting in all the little cracks of life where nobody expected something to grow. Your own wildflower heart that still longs to love this world and everything in it.
“If nothing else happens, plant a seed. Stay to feed him. Stay to watch the tree you tended grow.”
She captioned the post, “If nothing else, plant a seed.”
In May she posted another poem after losing her brother.
The lyrics were about happiness and said, “‘Are you happy?’
“,Honestly? No. But I’m curious – I’m curious about my sadness and I’m curious about my joy. I’m always searching, always feeling.’”
Olivia wrote in her caption: “Saved this a few weeks ago before my younger brother died. I guess the universe knew I had to keep it now.”
“Rest in this space of eternal seeking and eternal feeling. Thank you all for the love.”
Then, in January, she shared one text post on her Instagram feed about “putting yourself first.”
