Kody Brown has been dumped by a younger woman he’d been secretly dating for months – and is now desperate to find a new wife, a source told The U.S. Sun.
The Sister Wives patriarch has been searching for a new wife after three former spouses – Meri, Janelle, and Christine Brown – publicly ended their “spiritual” marriages.
A Sister Wives expert who has multiple production sources spilled the tea about Kody’s frantic search for a new spouse, as only his legal wife, Robyn, remains in the polygamous family.
“Kody and Robyn have been actively pursuing a new wife,” Pauline Bithell, co-host of the Tender Loving Care… podcast with Kate Chindlund, told The U.S. Sun.
“They have been courting a ‘new potential wife’ for about three months,” she said.
“They started filming [the courtship] around December, but they’ve been chatting online and via phone calls for about three months previous to that.
“They were actively seeking this woman through dating websites, which they claim they’ve never done before.”
THE ‘NEW WIFE’
Despite the production source not being able to disclose the name of the woman – as it would be a spoiler for the new season – Pauline was able to provide details about her background and age.
She’s reportedly in her early 20s, she said.
According to Pauline, Kody and Robyn “wanted somebody very fresh, very new, that is not involved in the polygamous lifestyle in America.
“So they deliberately wanted to go and find somebody abroad,” Pauline shared with The U.S. Sun, adding that the woman is from a South American country.
The production source alleged that the three of them, along with a filming crew and producers, met at a resort in Mexico.
DUMPED BY ‘YOUNGER WOMAN’
After meeting Kody, 54, and Robyn, 44, and spending some time together, the woman allegedly felt “uncomfortable” and “told production she wanted to go home and didn’t want to continue filming.”
“Apparently, my source tells me that this woman wanted zero to do with Kody and Robyn,” Pauline dished.
“She was pretty much wanting to get out of the situation immediately.
“My source said that she was very uncomfortable with the whole situation. She said she didn’t like their energy.”
When asked if any PDA was involved in the brief meetup, the source alleged that Kody is still standing by his values of “no intimacy before marriage.”
Kody, according to the source, feels “absolutely humiliated by it all and he doesn’t want this to air.”
The father of 18 has been “pushing for production to not air the filmed footage with the potential new wife.”
“A lot of the focus has been on this woman, which is why it’s been such a devastation to him.
“He really believed that this was gonna be his next wife,” the source claimed.
ANOTHER FALLING OUT
Kody “very much wants to establish his patriarchal role and polygamous lifestyle,” yet again after three wives left him, according to the Sister Wives source.
Pauline shared: “He wants to carry on and he needs to fill that spot very quickly. And I think it’s very much about boosting his ego- his ego has taken a low blow.”
She added: “I really think it probably comes from desperation with Kody because he’s in a situation where his entire life has been turned upside down and he’s trying to rebuild. He still believes in polygamy.
“And who knows by choosing a younger wife, to me, that sounds like he wants more children.”
Kody’s emotions are running high and his feelings for this girl allegedly were “very real.”
“He is in very contentious talks with TLC because of what the fallout was,” Pauline claimed.
Tender Loving Care…? podcast first revealed the news about Kody pursuing a new wife during an episode released last month.
The podcast – known for breaking down popular TV shows – is named after TLC since Pauline, who moved from England to Los Angeles, was a fan of the network and thought TLC stood for “Tender Loving Care.”
Their audience spans over 50 countries and is available to listen to on iHeart and Apple podcasts.
