The truth behind Sister Wives star Meri Brown’s shocking reunion with Janelle’s sons in Las Vegas following allegations of abuse
THE US Sun has learned new details about Sister Wives’ Meri Brown’s surprise reunion with Janelle’s sons in Las Vegas after allegations of abuse surfaced.
The TLC star posted a photo with Janelle Brown’s sons Hunter Brown and Logan Brown days after Christine Brown’s son Paedon made shocking claims about Kody’s ex-wife.
“When you’re in Vegas, it just makes sense to find some handsome guys to spend a few hours with! She captioned the picture dated February 1st.
An insider close to the family told The US Sun: “They hung out and it was fun. It was like old times.”
Meri, 52, was in Vegas with friends to celebrate her 52nd birthday.
The insider claimed the three have “definitely” spoken out about everything that was going on, including the abuse allegations.
“She was always very close to the boys. She always adored her. They went out of their way to support them believing Paedon was full of shit,” the source continued.
“They wanted her to know they were supporting her.”
The source added, “She doesn’t really have anyone to support her – very few family members are there for her. Most of them feel like she still betrayed the family, but Logan and Hunter have always supported her.”
The insider also said that Meri feels the same way about Janelle’s children, who she has been close with since childhood, and has been supportive of 25-year-old Hunter since he moved to Vegas from Utah.

CLAIMS ABOUT MERI
Paedon’s unexpected claims were made during a live YouTube interview with blogger John Yates on Jan. 11.
When a fan pointed out that Meri was “abrasive,” the 24-year-old family member replied, “Abrasive isn’t enough word to explain what Meri was specifically to some of us kids.”
“It goes so far beyond the verbal. The verbal has basically ceased to exist.”
Gwendlyn Brown, the 21-year-old daughter of Kody and Christine, responded to her brother’s comments while participating in a Q&A with fans on Patreon.
“Meri had moments where she was rude and scary, but I don’t recall her getting physical with anyone besides Mykelti, and that was only once,” Gwendlyn claimed.
Kody and Christine’s other daughter, Mykelti Brown, also commented on Patreon.
“I don’t want to discount my siblings’ experiences with her. I don’t remember Meri ever physically abusing me. She was very abusive to all of us emotionally and verbally when we were younger,” she said.
“I really think I took the brunt of it. My siblings have told me several times that they think I got the worst of what she gave. However, I think we were all affected by it.”
A source close to the family has denied any allegations of abuse.
Meri has yet to address the allegations directly. According to an insider, Kody, 54, will also remain silent for the time being.
“He’s probably being advised not to talk about it at all because he has young kids at home, so he needs to be careful,” a source said.
“He only seems to be worried about himself at the moment. He’s in a really weird mood.”
The father of 18 is left with one wife, Robyn Brown, after the other three left the family patriarch.
“He seeks power again. He feels like he’s the one who’s lost control and his values,” the insider claimed.
“He gets advice from family and friends about what to do now and how to be more open and discuss things on social media.”
Kody and Meri recently addressed their relationship status to Sister Wives fans in a Jan. 10 post.
“After more than a decade of working on our relationship in our unique ways, we have made the decision to permanently end our marriage,” they wrote on each of their Instagram pages.
