Any TLC viewer would agree that 2010’s Sister Wives is surely one of the strangest television shows that have ever aired on the channel. Well, despite that, it has successfully kept its audience entertained for more than a decade. The Brown family’s TV history began when they started courting the fourth sister-wife, Robyn. It was pretty soon after she got divorced from her first husband, David Jessop. Years later, after she became a ‘Brown,’ Kody’s youngest bride dominates the entire family. However, fans still desire to know more about her previous marriage. So, where is Robyn Brown’s ex-husband now? Keep reading to find out all about him.
Who Is David Jessop From Sister Wives?
Even though Robyn Brown’s ex-husband barely appeared on the popular television show, a lot of people know how he’s related to the Brown family. Kody’s fourth wife was married before, and her first husband’s name is David Jessop. As per reports, Robyn and David got married back in 1999 and stayed together for around a decade. The two of them got divorced in 2009 (as per Cheatsheet), only a year before the Mormon family got their TLC show.
During the time Robyn was married to her first husband, the ex-couple had three children. In 2000, she gave birth to her first child, David (now Dayton), and later welcomed daughters Aurora and Breanna in 2002 and 2005, respectively. The Brown fam’s memoir called Becoming Sister Wives- The Story of an Unconventional Marriage mentioned a section where Robyn talks about her previous marriage. She mentioned that her relationship with David fell apart at seven years, and they got separated. However, they only got divorced a year and a half later, in 2009. After that, she met Kody Brown and is currently happily married.
Why Did David & Robyn Get Divorced? How Did She Become One Of The Sister Wives?
The favorite wife of Kody Brown has previously talked about how difficult her first marriage was for her. In fact, she suffered a lot of pain and hardship because of David. However, the TV star has never directly mentioned the exact reason she got divorced. Robyn Brown’s ex-husband had given up most of his parental rights related to the three kids he shared with her. Ever since Sister Wives started airing on TLC, David Jessop has tried to keep himself away from the limelight as much as possible. As a result, he hasn’t mentioned the actual reason why he got separated from Robyn.
Some hardcore fans of the show gathered hints about Robyn and David’s divorce from the former’s social media activity. As per E! News, Kody’s fourth wife suggested in a tweet that she ended her first marriage because of abuse. There are no sources to prove that the serious allegations against Robyn’s ex-husband are true. However, a lot of Sister Wives fans believe her after she and her kids entirely stripped David away from their lives. After Robyn and Kody had their spiritual reunion in 2010, the latter took responsibility for the former’s three kids.
Later on, the polygamist decided to adopt his fourth wife’s children. Hence, for the sake of the adoption, his first wife, Meri Brown, agreed to legally divorce him. In 2014, Kody and Robyn got legally married. So, the kids ended up changing their last names to Brown. In fact, Robyn’s eldest son, David, decided to drop the name that he took from his biological father and change it to Dayton. After the adoption was finalized, Dayton, Aurora, and Breanna chose to lose the little contact they had with David Jessop.
Where Is Robyn Brown’s Ex-Husband? What Happened To Him?
As of today, Robyn’s life is still being broadcasted around the country through her widely popular show, Sister Wives. On the contrary, David Jessop has entirely cut himself off the internet. TV Season & Spoilers reports that the infamous ex-husband does not have any public social media profiles and refrains from appearing in the news.
