SISTER Wives' Meri Brown and Kody Brown have potentially split after almost 30 years of marriage.
The first hints were broadcast during the TLC show when the couple admitted that their relationship was over, as the Brown patriarch claimed he regretted their relationship.
Here are all the signs that Kody and Meri are no longer an item.
Meri said their relationship is 'over'
In the show, Meri and Kody went to couple's counseling to try and mend their relationship.
That's when Meri, 49, admitted their relationship has been “pretty rocky.”
She continued: “People ask me all the time why I don’t leave.
“The relationship between he and I is gone, it’s dead, it’s over.”
Kody, 51, then explained how they had a “very fast courtship.”
He added: “I didn’t know who I was marrying. I am just done with hearing how I am wrong.”
In another preview for the episode, he said: “We’re family, but we’re not acting married.”
Meri responded: “He doesn’t want to move forward with trying to work things out with me.”
He fired back: “I can never be honest because she’s unable to move away from being the victim.”
Kody claimed he regrets their relationship and she deceived him into marrying her
During the same therapy session, Kody revealed: “Meri mourns the loss of what we had… I regret what we had.”
Meri said: “The relationship he and I had, it’s dead, it’s gone, it’s over. I want a relationship with him.”
He then slammed Meri for “going to victim mode” when he tried to have honest conversations.
He continued to fire: “I feel like I was deceived into a relationship that was very different than what I expected. Meri and I had a fast courtship with a lot of expectations and a lot of not communicating.
"I didn’t know who I was marrying. As things unfolded, I started to become troubled and bitter by the situation I was in.”
Kody and Meri snubbed each other on their 30th anniversary
Instead of posting a photo with Kody for their anniversary, Meri captioned a selfie with her dog: “Puppy life… Can it get any better??”
Meri then posted a series of cryptic quotes on Instagram.
She shared on Instagram Story: “You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.”
She then posted: “Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
But Meri didn’t stop there, as she posted a quote that read: “Remember to take care of yourself. You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
She added to the post: “Self care. I’m feeling in need of this today.”
Kody also failed to reach out to Meri via social media.
Meri pauses Facebook Live to sign legal papers
Kody came by Meri's house during the quarantine to deliver her some legal papers.
Meri paused a live sale and could be heard telling her husband that he looked “tired.”
Kody could then be heard in the background: “I don’t know what it is… stress. I am meditating. I am exercising. I am working.”
Meri then encouraged her husband to “take CBD” and admitted she took some the other day and it tasted “nasty.”
Kody then apologized for interrupting her sale and left.
When fans asked what legal paperwork she signed, Meri joked: “Divorce papers!”
The video is the first time in months Meri and Kody have been spotted on social media together, as fans have suspected he has been in coronavirus quarantine with “favorite” and fourth wife Robyn, 41.
Meri 'looks at fear in the face' after she saw Kody
The reality star captioned a photo of her smiling: “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Do the thing you think you cannot do."
Instagram followers suspect Meri posted the empowering quote because she has left her husband.
One fan said: “Girl you should’ve left years ago that whole relationship is just an emotional mind warp. You deserve to be happy.”
A second commented: “I hope you find your soulmate and stop waiting for a man who doesn’t love, you deserve to be happy, so go find you a real good man.”
Her post came just days after she had seen Kody to sign some legal documents. She also wasn't wearing a wedding ring.
Meri says she 'can't force' anyone to 'feel how they don't feel'
The mother of one posted a rather lengthy post and wrote: “Whether with my business associates or in my personal life, I can't force anyone to be who they're not, feel how they don't feel, or meet me anywhere they're not willing or able to meet me. And that's ok. I'll be here for them when they are.”
“I can only control me and how I respond or react to any given situation. I make my own choices and I'm responsible for them. They say life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. My reactions aren't always the best, and that doesn't define me. But I'm still in the game. I haven't quit.
She ended the caption: “Living life on a daily basis, working hard, dreaming big. Because that's what I do. That's what I'll always do. That's who I am.”
Meri and Kody haven't started to build their dream home after two years of purchasing the land
Meri posted a photo of the family’s Coyote Pass property, which was purchased in June 2018 for $820,000, in Flagstaff, Arizona.
But all that could be seen in the photo was vacant land, as Kody and his four wives Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn have yet to build their four homes on the property.
Meri got a new look as she recently changed her hair and lost weight
Kody's first wife posted a selfie of her haircut and weight loss after she revealed she has been working with a personal trainer.
Meri continued to spark split rumors with the post, as she insisted she doesn’t “need anyone” in the caption of the photo.
The lengthy caption began: “For as long as I can remember, I've been a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal. I feel my most comfortable in them, not too showy or flashy, can dress it up a little with heels and a fancy necklace, or work out in the yard with sneakers and cut offs. It's been my thing. But the world says I should improve my style.
“The world says I should wear a dress. The world says I should wear lipstick. But I say, I'll do what 'I' want. If I want to wear jeans and a t-shirt all day every day, I will. If I want to wear a skirt and t-shirt with sneakers, I will. If I want to dress up for a night out, I will. If I want to wear lipstick, well, that will just never happen, be assured!”
Meri continued: “I don't need anyone but ME to tell me how to dress in the morning, or how do do my hair, or heaven help me, how to do my eyebrows! I'm a woman who has lived on this earth for nearly 50 years, and I'm not afraid to say it. I've raised a daughter. I've had ups and downs. I've had crazy and amazing life experiences.
“I've loved and been loved. I've felt pain and caused others pain. I've felt comforted and hopefully have been a comforter. Point is, I've LIVED. These experiences have shaped and formed me. And I'm not finished yet!”
She ended the caption with: “Find your style and be confident in it! Find your cause and fight for it! Find your passion and create it! YOU matter. YOU are amazing. YOU can conquer that goal. YOU can feel confident in your own skin. YOU can do hard things. YOU can do ALL the things! You got this!!"
