As Meri Brown continues to take the heat following her split from Kody and abuse claims, the patriarch and Christine's daughter Mykelti Padron decided to speak out.

During a Crowdcast Live, where Mykelti and her husband, Tony Padron, answered a series of questions, the Sister Wives star brought up Meri's 2015 catfishing scandal while shaming her dad's first wife after she confirmed she and Kody "permanently terminated" their 33-year marriage.

"When you cheat on someone, you're giving up first," Mykelti reportedly said. "If you're going to cheat on your spouse, you're giving up on the relationship first. It's unfair for her to get mad at Dad when she gave up. She threw the towel in. She said, 'I'm done.' She cheated first."


Meri infamously fell in love with someone online in 2015 who she believed to be a man but turned out to be a woman.

Though Mykelti clarified that Meri didn't "have a physical relationship" with anyone, the famous offspring pointed out that the mother-of-one had an "emotional affair" with the catfish.

"Mariah heard them on the phone having intimate conversations over the phone. And if you're sexting or verbal sexting or whatever, that's cheating. That's still cheating," spilled Mykelti, referencing Meri's only child, who has since transitioned and now goes by Leon.

Tony chimed in to note that while Meri didn't leave Kody after falling in love with someone else, it may have only been because the person on the other end of the screen turned out to be a woman.

"If it had not been a girl pretending to be a guy, who knows what could have happened," Mykelti's husband said.

Tony doubled down on Kody's past thoughts on the situation, as he said during a previous episode of Sister Wives after the scandal: "When Meri had an affair, she was leaving my a**."

"Because she was like, 'I'm done with this. I am done with you.' She made it clear to everybody that she was getting out of there. She was done with us," Kody insisted at the time. "And she can't admit it now. We circled the wagons as a family to protect her when she realized that she'd been duped."

Mykelti expressing her views on Meri comes on the heels of her siblings' abuse claims against the controversial Brown family member.

As OK! reported, just last week, Kody and Christine's son, Paedon, seemingly accused Meri of child abuse, saying during a YouTube Live session of her: "Abrasive and kind of mean are not strong enough words, they are not aggressive enough words."


Paedon added that the ill treatment moved past "verbal," with his sister Gwendlyn confirming that she had seen Meri violent in the past.

"[Meri] was scary as a kid, but she never attacked me and I only saw her violent once," the 21-year-old claimed while answering a number of questions from her fans and followers. "Meri had moments where she was rude and scary but I don’t remember her getting physical with anyone except for Mykelti and that was only once."

Entertainment Tonight reported on Mykelti's stance on Meri's upset.
