The Roloff family of Little People, Big World started to unravel after Matt and Amy Roloff split, but now, the family is coming undone after the youngest member, Jacob, turned his back on them.
The “Rebel” Roloff is outspoken on Twitter, but recently shocked fans when he lashed out about not getting paid from working on the TLC show.
"Man I wish it didn't feel like I was getting f***ed out of the money from the show that was my childhood right now," he tweeted on August 29.
Jacob just turned 18 and revealed he is a high school drop out, after reportedly leaving school to study independently at home. "If you can tell my intellectual level with me not having finished formal high school, why do I still need it? Just to say so?" he tweeted to a fan on September 8.
He’s also estranged from his parents and brothers. Jacob does not follow Amy, Matt, or his 25-year-old brothers, Jeremy and Zach, on Twitter. However, he does follow his sister Molly, 21.
Along with family, Jacob has also shunned reality TV in a new heartfelt Instagram post with Jack Hamill, the 7-year-old star of Our Little Family. “This is Jack. I've never felt I had more of an opportunity to influence someone's life than when I told him how much I didn't like filming when I was his age, so he knows just because the adults say it's what's best, doesn't mean it's what's best,” he wrote.
As for his future, Jacob has said he has no interest in college. “I have a hard time being excited for my friends going to 4-year colleges," he tweeted on August 16. "I think you could learn a lot more for a lot less."
