Bear Brown’s time on Alaskan Bush People has not been as smooth as he liked it. While he did have a fair share of happy memories on the show, things have since taken a downturn and Bear found himself in the midst of a drawn-out custody battle with his ex-fiance, Raiven Admas. While the custody of their son River Adamas was granted to Raiven, Bear revealed that Raiven wanted to establish that Bear was not the father and informed him two days after the birth of their son. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Bear Brown and his drawn-out custody battle with his ex-fiancee.
Bits and Pieces:
Not much is known about Bear Brown, and the 33-year old has done little to rectify things. Bear is the first of Billy and Ami‘s child who was born and raised in Alaska. Solomon Isaiah Freedom Brown was born on the 10th of June, 1987, and has been living in Alaska all his life. Little is known about Bear’s early life and academic background. He joined the cast of Alaska Bush People alongside his family and rose to fame through the series. Centered around the Brown family, the series recently wrapped up its 11th season in January of 2020, and it’s 12th season premiered on August 23, 2020.
Meeting Raiven & Engagement:
Bear Brown and Raiven Adams met or the first time in 2018 at their brother Noah’s wedding. At the time, Raiven was assisting her mom, Kassidy, who was in charge of photography. The pair had quite the first meeting and felt an instant connection to each other. Talking to People, Bear revealed that Raiven was the complete package.
“I would definitely say what I like most about Raiven would simply be Raiven herself. She is truly the full package. She is like, beauty in every sense of the word, inside and out. And she is the most awesome and extreme woman I’ve ever met! I adore her, honestly.”
Raiven reciprocated the feelings and the pair decided to get engaged after a year of dating. In August of 2019, the pair announced their engagement via an Instagram post but split-up after just two weeks of getting engaged.
Following the pair’s split, Raiven took to Instagram to announce that she and Bear were no longer together but would always be in each other live’s. While many thought that the duo was on amicable terms, they ensued in a long drawn out custody battle. Raiven accused Bear of mentally and physically abusing her. In February of 2019, Raivn revealed that Bear held her at gunpoint and would withhold food from her if she spoke against his alleged drug abuse.
In response, Bear revealed that he had never abused Raiven and it was Raiven who withheld the information of the birth of his child from him. In an Instagram post, Bear revealed,
“Raiven who was abusive toward me and she continues to be so, by constantly lying about me. I will not stand by and do nothing! I never did any drugs I never threatened her with a gun or anything else she has said I did! She didn’t even tell me until two days after River was born! It’s sad that someone I loved would treat me such a way! It’s heart breaking!”
Birth of the first child:
The pair’s only child, River Adams, was born on the 9th of March 2020. Regardless of whose version of the story is right, Bear was not present for the child’s birth. Following the birth of their child, Raiven and Bear engaged in a custody battle which ultimately gave the custody to Raiven. The court documents read,
“It is in the best interests of the minor child that defendant Raiven Adams have sole legal custody of the minor child.” Raiven has also filed for a restricted visitation order against Bear, which is yet to be decided.
