Roloff Divorce: 'Little People, Big World' Stars Split After 27 Years

By    |   Tuesday, 09 Jun 2015 10:06 AM

The Roloff couple from “Little People, Big World” announced this week that they'll be divorcing after nearly three decades of marriage.

“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple said in a statement on TLC’s website, according to The Hollywood Gossip.

Matt and Amy Roloff separated in 2014 while co-parenting their four children and running the Oregon family farm together.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults,” the statement read.

Nonetheless, Matt Roloff admitted to having “a lot of tensions” between him and his wife on the TLC reality show, according to The Hollywood Gossip.

“Amy and I stuck it out for years when maybe we shouldn't have,” Roloff said on the show. “I never quite felt at home in my own home, so something needed to change.”

Matt moved into the guest house around Thanksgiving to try out a separation.

“It's not my choice for him to leave,” Amy Roloff said on the show. “I am deeply saddened by it.”

While the pair may have their struggles, they maintain that their children are the most important to them. At their son Jeremy Roloff’s wedding to Audrey Mirabella Botti last fall, they presented a united front, The Hollywood Gossip reported.

“Our kids and our ever growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority,” they said in the statement.

Fans of “Little People, Big World” will, however, be happy to hear that even though the couple is splitting, the television show will continue filming, according to the Inquisitr.

Matt posted on Facebook in April saying that episodes will continue:

 

We're off from filming this coming week....after an intense run last several weeks... Now to catch up on normal life and get some farming done.
