Former LPBW star Jacob Roloff left the reality show ages ago. Since his departure was so abrupt, many wondered about the reason behind it. After years of silence, the ex-TV star opened up in 2020 about being a victim of sexual molestation. It happened when he was merely a boy in his teens. What was more shocking was that one of the producers of Little People Big World was behind such a heinous act. A year after his tragic statement, Jacob has made another post raising awareness about Child Sexual Assault.
