The father-of-eighteen later opened up about their estranged relationship in a tell-all admitting that they are not currently speaking to each other, and that he believes they need "therapy" to restore their broken relationship.

Ysabel Brown, 18 — one of Kody and Christine's daughters — was left in tears when Kody refused to travel with her for her major back surgery because he was too afraid of being exposed to COVID and having to quarantine away from Robyn and their kids.

"I think his priorities are a little screwed up," she told cameras in a particularly emotional moment. She later added, "I think I'm a little upset that he can't go because he's always talking about how family comes first ... But when it comes down to it, I need him there, and he's not putting his daughter above the fear that he has of the pandemic."

In a January episode, Gabe tearfully confessed he had felt abandoned by Kody over the pandemic, and how his stringent rules and lack of communication were "ruining" their family.

The 53-year-old explained that Gabe had to choose between him coming over and seeing his girlfriend, to which the 20-year-old struggled through held back years as he asked, "Why? why was I made to have that decision?"

"My dad doesn't even know what my girlfriend looks like," he later admitted, further elaborating that Kody had never even talked with her, and yet still assumed she wasn't following COVID safety precautions.

Paedon, 23 — Christine and Kody's only son — recently stated that he has a "weird" relationship with Robyn because he was jealous of how much time his dad spent with her kids "doing things with them that he didn't do with me."
