Bear Brown and Raiven Adams call things off just two weeks after the Alaskan Bush People couple announced their engagement. Adams claims the reason comes from the “drama” and “harassment” she’s received from her time in the spotlight. She has chosen to distance herself from the Discovery personality for this same reason. Adams made the announcement about the breakup on her private Instagram, late Monday night. She explained the breakup, Popculture.com quoted “Making a big life change is pretty scary. But know what’s even scarier? Regret.”
“It’s been a long battle for me to decide what I should do,” the former fiancée wrote. “What I should say… I think this life is too much for me. The drama, the articles, the harassment. The mean people who have nothing better to do.”
Couple Plans Remain Friends Even After Breakup
Though the couple is no longer together, they intend to keep relations between each other and the family, positive.
“And due to that, and several other reasons me and Bear have decided to stay friends,” she continued. “Sometimes two people are meant to be in each other’s life…. but not the way they thought. Wishing the wolf pack all of the best luck on every adventure.”
The couple had announced their intentions to marry at the end of August. Brown had told PEOPLE at the time, “Raiven has been my best friend since [brother Noah Brown’s] wedding. She helped me a lot over the last year and I hope I can always be there for her the way she is for me. I love her. I never thought I’d hear myself say those words, but I do!”
This announcement may have lead to too much attention for Raiven Adams, who later had a fest with Instagram trolls in the following days.
“I’m so very tired of reading such nasty comments,” she wrote before turning her Instagram private. “Bear is one of the most loving, funny people I have ever met in my life. You see the 10% of his personality the show has provided. Because he isn’t comfortable sharing all of his personality, he doesn’t want to deal with hate and judgment.”
Adams Defends Brown And Says She Always Will
“And if you make fun of him for being silly, and different. Enjoying the simple things, climbing trees and so on. He is okay with that because that’s not all he has to offer. And he knows this…he is such a good person! Puts everyone else first and never fails to make me smile. Here he is laying on the floor at the baby shower. Playing laser tag with my little cousins. Which, was the highlight of the day. Aside from the obvious reason of seeing my cousin, and the celebration of her baby girl.”
Adams continued, explaining that she would have Bear’s back until her dying day. But knew people weren’t going to change their behavior because of this.
“You make fun of him, and a lot of us for punctuation. And anything else you can bring to light. Maybe to feel better about the sadness life has obviously brought you,” she wrote. “And I’m so sorry your lives are so empty of good things, leading you to ruin the good things for others. (I am not posting this in hopes it stops, or because I think it will make people change. I’m posting it because I will stick up for him until my last breath) He is unapologetically himself and that’s the best way to be.”
